Statistics, line-ups and balanced play
Need help balancing playing time for your players? Check with your Division Representative. Also talk with other managers. Most managers with a year or two under their belt have built spreadsheets to ensure playing time is fair. A few managers in AA and above have nifty files that use scorebook information to provide player statistics, depending on how good your scorekeeper tracks them.
The El Quito Park field might be closed if there are rainy or wet conditions. The hotline for the Saratoga field conditions (El Quito) is 868-1207. Remember to call!!! Do not practice if it is closed. Doing so jeopardizes our use permit.
Need scorekeeping help? There is a good tutorial on keeping score available online at http://www.baseballscorecard.com. Just click on the "Keeping Score" tutorial and you'll have everything you need to know and more.
Make sure that you put the kids first and last name (or at a minimum the first letter and last name) on the line-up cards for scorekeepers, numbers help too! This way the scorekeepers can have better information in the official scorebook.

Games are won at practice!
By preparing your players properly at practice, you will without doubt win your share of games. There is very little magic a baseball coach has at his disposal during a game; no special plays, no tricks and no assured influences. No special pre-game pep talks will influence the outcome of a game.
