BASEBALL EQUIPMENT RULE CHANGES FOR 2020

Baseballs. For all competition, all baseballs must have both the NFHS and NOCSAE seal. The umpires have been told if there are insufficient such baseballs available, the game is to be suspended. Because this is a safety rule, if any changes in this policy are made, schools will be notified by email from the CHSAA office. Umpires will submit a report to CHSAA.

 

Chest Protectors. All catchers must have either a NOCSAE certified protector or a NOCSAE certified vest worn under any chest protector.

 

Catcher’s Helmet and Mask. All catchers must have either a NOCSAE certified helmet/mask combo (Hockey style) or a separate mask and helmet. If the helmet is separate it must be NOCSAE certified with dual ear flaps.

 

Jaw Protectors. A player may choose to have a jaw protector attached to his batting helmet. The “chin flap” may have been manufactured as part of the helmet or it may have subsequently been attached to the helmet. Either model is legal as long as the helmet is NOCSAE certified.

 

 

OTHER REMINDERS

All personnel (coaches and players) in uniform must either be on the field or in the dugout except for ball chasers in the parking lot, etc.

If your navy hat is in good shape no need to buy a new one.  For Spring 2020, navy “HOME hat” is the same as last year.  New for Spring 2020 is a white “AWAY hat.”  Players were canvassed and approved of the concept and design.  HOME and AWAY hats will be used by the V, JV and the C-Team.

 

For Spring 2020, V and JV will wear grey pants (all grey or grey with navy piping; knicker or long) with our Cougar blue game top and white/dark navy pinstripe pant with a new dark navy top.  Game tops are paid for by the School District and remain the School District's property - players will need to return them at the end of the Spring season.  Players, coaches are responsible for their pants, socks, belts, sleeves, hats, hoodies, etc.  

 

NEW AWAY game tops for V, JV and as stated above are to be worn with the new white with dark navy pinstripes pants.
