Good luck to everyone

As of 9:50pm

All games at Yonah Complex have started back but there was a delay on all fields for approximately one hour due to a medical emergency.

We will update scores as the games finish but please know that some games had just started when they had to be stopped.

Tomorrow's schedule (game times) will not change.

Good luck to everyone!

All,
There is a medical issue that has paused games on all fields.
Because of that, the Sunday bracket schedule will be delayed and not released until later tonight, once all the delayed games have restarted and concluded.
We will input the scores from the final games as soon as they end and the brackets will be posted a few minutes later.
Thanks

BLUE UMPIRE CARDS - for each game, you will complete a blue game card with your line-up. At the end of the game, you MUST sign that the card is accurate with the score as well as your innings pitched. Please review that it is correct as this becomes the official information once it is submitted after your game. Unfortunately, we do not have time to start contacting teams once any potential errors are brought up after results are posted.

ROSTERS - online rosters are required for all SSP events. If you need help either creating or managing your roster, we have "how to" directions on our main website. PLEASE READ AGE REQUIREMENTS FOR YOUR AGE GROUP.

COACHES AND PARENTS - DOWNLOAD OUR PHONE APP -
PLEASE have everyone on your team download our phone app at SOUTHERNSPORTSPROMOTIONS (near bottom of the page.). All coaches, and parents who download the app for your team and sign up for alerts, will receive all weather related updates from Southern Sports as well as all scores, scheduling and bracket information.

RULES - Our rules are posted on our website and phone app. It is the sole responsibility of the head coach to know and understand the rules that Southern Sports follows for its events. In addition, all head coaches are responsible for the behavior of all players, coaches and spectators from their team. We and our park partners have a zero-tolerance policy on poor behavior at our events.

ALL-TOURNAMENT TEAM - after this week's event, we will announce the SSP All-Tournament Team from the tournament. Coaches, Umpires, and On-site Directors will have the opportunity to nominate any player on any of the teams in their division. The deadline to submit names will be Monday at 12pm. Coaches can submit names of players from any team in their division. Southern Sports will make the final selections, from the list of nominated players, and the players will be announced mid-week.

Good Luck to Everyone!!

PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL OF YOUR FAMILIES

PHONE APP
Please have all of your families download our phone app prior to the event in order to receive event information, weather updates, games scores, schedule changes and much, much more!! The phone app is SOUTHERNSPORTSBASEBALL.

TOURNAMENT T-SHIRTS
The Mountain World Series shirts are almost gone due to the demand on pre-sales orders. We will have the remaining shirts for sale beginning on Friday morning, until they are sold out. The only sizes that are left are adult sizes in small, medium and large. If interested, please do not wait to come by the SSP tent on Friday.

SKILLS COMPETITION ON FRIDAY NIGHT
-We will host a skills competition at the event. We estimate the beginning of the skills competition to start at approximately 7 pm on Friday, but it will depend on the flow of Friday games. It will take place on YP Field #2. There are no registration of participants for the skills competition. There will be three events with awards:
1) Fastest Man - 1 player per team will participate.
2) Around the Horn - this event will be a timed throw from home plate to 3B to 2B to 1B back to home plate (and repeat for a second time in the same session). Teams can have multiple players in order to maximize the number of players involved.
3) Fastest Bat - 1 player per team will participate. (Max Velo off the tee will be measured from 3 swings off the tee).

For teams that bring pins to trade, this can happen throughout the weekend but typically takes place before/during the skills competition as well.

BATTING CAGES
There is very limited batting cage space at the Yonah Complex. All teams should come prepared with alternative pre-game routines. If you use the cages, be very considerate of everyone trying to prepare for their games. There are fields located in the front of the park that can be utilized for warm-up and game prep as well.

ENTERING THE PARK AND FINDING THE YONAH PRESERVE COMPLEX
As you enter the park, you will see "yard" type signs directing you to the tournament fields. White county has just completed painting arrows on the pavement to help with this. They have also painted "YP" (Yonah Preserve) with the arrows. Let your families know that this can assist them to the back of the park, and the fields that we will be plying on this weekend.

PARKING/CONSTRUCTION SITE
At the Yonah Complex, there is a construction site on your left next to the fields as you drive into the rear area. NO PARKING is allowed anywhere near the construction site or in the unpaved parking lot. White County has communicated if any vehicles are parked in this area, the vehicles will be towed (without notice) at the owner’s expense. Please only park in the designated parking area at the YP Complex.

MORE INFORMATION WILL FOLLOW!
