There is a Tab for each division, make sure you select the Tab you are interested in.  This schedule will not be maintained with rescheduled games, please contact your coaches for make up games.  

To see all of the games scheduled in Lone Jack, use the Lone Jack Fields calendar.  This calendar tracks all of the home games (on Bynum 1, Bynum 2 and at the High School) and practice times.

Standings

Standings can be found the Warrensburg Park and Rec site.  On this site you will also see schedules for each division.  Winning teams are responsible for reporting game results, so if there is a game in the past with no score, it means the winning coach has not yet reported the game.

Rule Base

The Lone Jack Athletic Association baseball and softball teams are playing the the Glenn W. Shippy Recreational League (the Shippy league).  Shippy uses the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) rules as base for both Baseball and Softball.  While the 2014 versions must be purchased, a 2011 version is available online at: http://www.softballjournal.com/hssoftballrules2011.pdf.

Custom Rules

The customs rules (rules that are implemented at different age levels to help improve the game for younger players) are captured in the Playing The Game document.

Additional Information

To help further educate parents, players, coaches and even umpires, we have put together a white paper capturing some of the common rule misunderstandings called Top Softball/Baseball Rule Myths.   Test yourself and see if you really know the rules as well as you think you do.
