French Valley Baseball Softball Association


Our goal is to have kids play ball! We are entirely run by volunteers who share a passion for all kids to have the opportunity to play baseball and softball, regardless of their skill level, or financial status. We try our best to exhaust every possibility and explore every alternative before canceling games or practices. 

Why are other baseball and softball leagues still having games while ours are canceled?

While we can’t speak to the weather and amount of standing water at other fields, our fields are owned and operated by Valley-Wide Recreation and Park District who maintain authority over their availability. Valley-Wide retains the right to keep fields open or have them closed at their sole discretion. 

The fields I saw looked fine. Why are they closed?

When there is rain Valley Wide sends out their workers to  assess the fields that day.  Depending on how dry fields are Valley Wide will open none, some, or all fields.  Things for softball and baseball  Valley-Wide looks at is safety for players and field condition. If grass is mushy sometimes this will close fields depending on how wet they are.  If the dirt has standing water on it then the field will be closed.  If the dirt is mushy when stepped on (leaving footprints) or slippery when stepped on the field will be closed.  Valley Wide needs to be able to drag the fields with their heavy equipment so if the grass or dirt is too soft to use the heavy equipment they will not open the field.

** Weekend inspections by valley wide will not happen. If on Friday morning fields are too soft to drag, Valley-Wide typically will not open fields over the weekend.  

Do canceled games get made up?

We try our best to reschedule canceled games, but also want to keep our current schedule and end of season playoffs intact while not extending our season. Our goal is for every team to play a minimum of ten and ideally twelve games per season. Games will be rescheduled with teams who have missed the most games having priority for every division. 

Will we make up games with Double Headers?

We typically add make up games during off days and try our best to avoid double headers, if possible.
