Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan

Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan for NYO's Fields at Chastain Park.

 

HEAR ALARM

* All play or practice is suspended
* All players, coaches, umpires, officials and spectators should leave the field and seek shelter immediately!

Move to a sturdy enclosed structure or a fully enclosed vehicle with the windows rolled up. No place is absolutely safe from a lightning threat, however some places are safer than others. Stay away from:

* Keep off of fields, common areas and any area of higher elevation.
* Avoid Tall isolated objects, such as flag poles, light poles or trees.
* Keep away all metal fences, bleachers and batting cages.
* Avoid all water and water fountains.

Safety is the number one consideration - common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.

Parents dropping off unattended children should have a safety plan in place for their child.
Do not return until the all clear is sounded – 3 quick 5 second horn blasts.

NOTE – For offsite NYO games or practices, umpires and coaches should follow the same safety guidelines if they hear thunder or see lightning. Play or practice shall not be resumed until there has been a minimum all clear period of 15 minutes – again common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.

Thank you!

Come cheer on the NYO BIGS teams, the Bears vs. Chargers, after the 3:30 Georgia Tech vs Tulane football game on Saturday, September 12 at Historic Bobby Dodd Stadium. All NYO players will be able to stand on the field during the Yellow Jackets' warm up. Tickets are just $17 and a portion of the proceeds go back to NYO.

A run to honor those we have lost

For four years, on or about September 11, hundreds of runners and walkers have lined up on a Sunday afternoon in Chastain Park to remember those whose lives were lost, directly or indirectly, because of that awful day in 2001. Their shoes pound the park’s pavement for 3.1 miles, as if each stride is in honor of someone who has fallen.

At 2 p.m. Sunday, September 13, the fifth-annual RPM 911 5K event will kick off at thePowers Ferry Road entrance to the Ryan P. Means American Legion Hall at the southern end of the park. Last year, 650 runners and walkers and 100 volunteers raised $42,000. This year’s targets: A thousand participants and $50,000. Proceeds go to a 12-week program at the Shepherd Center to serve military veterans who have sustained mild traumatic brain injury and/or PTSD in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Since its inception in 2008, the SHARE (Shaping Hope and Recovery Excellence) program has treated more than 300 vets at no cost to them and their families. To register, go to the event’s website, rpm911race.com. The cost for adults 19 and over as of September 13 is $25. It’s $15 for those younger.

Coaches are Needed! – Several coaches are still needed. Please contact Football@NYOsports.com if you able to assist with the important role of coaching.

For girls who will be ages 7-13 (and in 7th grade or lower) as of December 31, 2015, registration remains open for NYO's Fall Fastpitch season.  Spots are limited, so please sign up sooner rather than later if you would like to join us.  For the Fall Fastpitch season, practices will begin Saturday, August 22, and games will begin Sunday, September 13.  There are no evaluations or drafts for Fall Fastpitch, i.e. NYO assigns the teams.  Each week, the girls will have a single Saturday practice and one Sunday afternoon game.  The season concludes on the weekend of November 7-8.  The time commitment for the Fall Fastpitch season is limited, so that the girls can participate in other sports or activities.  The focus for the fall season is on the development of the players.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  We look forward to seeing you at NYO this fall!

It started out as a conversation between two friends and coaches:

“Do you think we’ll have enough players?”

“Let’s ask the families.   Do you think the tournament will let us combine our teams?”

“Let’s ask.”  

The idea grew from there and long after the summer ball season commitment was over, the 9U Bulls and Longhorns joined forces to enter the All-Star World Series Tournament in Douglasville, GA.   Three days, five games, and two lightning delays later the Bulls-Longhorns team, which was now dubbed the Bull-Horns, emerged as World Series Champions.

2015 NYO Fall Baseball

JULY 15 UPDATE - WE WIL BEGIN ON OUR WAIT LIST ON THU JULY 16.  RIGHT NOW WE HAVE LIMITED OPEN SPACE IN ALL LEAGUES AND WE WILL CLEAR KIDS OFF THE WAIT LIST IMMEDIATELY AS SPACE ALLOWS. ONCE WE HIT OUR CAP IN AN AGE GROUP, WE WILL KEEP OUR WAIT LIST GOING AND LET KIDS IN AS WE GET DROPS (WHICH IS A REGULAR OCCURENCE IN THE FALL).  PLEASE SIGN UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO WE CAN GET YOU IN WHILE WE HAVE SPACE. EMAIL ANY QUESTIONS TO This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Attached to this article is our opening informational memo for the fall 2015 baseball season. Sign ups start Saturday May 23 and run through July 15. Sign up in that window and you're in - after July 15, we'll wait list and let kids in as space allows. Practices will start in late August with games running from the weekend after Labor Day through the first weekend of November.  Keep in mind that when signing up, your child automatically moves up to the next league, i.e. the league they will play in during the spring of 2016, with players with 2016 league ages of 10, 11 and 12 playing in single age group leagues and players with 2016 league ages of 13 and 14 moving up to Pony. There are some exceptions as noted in the memo.  We usually try and keep teams more or less together from the prior spring in rising age groups 5 and 6 and down. The rest of the leagues have a modified draft format.  There are some features regarding the fall program that work a bit different that the spring, so be sure to take a look at the memo as it should answer all of your questions about fall ball, in particular the highlighted section.

Hope you can join us. Thanks, NYO Baseball

The NYO Rangers completed their summer season with a thrilling 7-5 victory over the East Side Titans in the championship game of the Dizzy Dean State Invitational Tournament, which took place at Hobgood Park over the 4th of July weekend.

Rainer Ortkiese started on the mound for NYO and held the Titans scoreless for the first two innings. Palmer Schultz earned the win with three innings of relief, allowing only one earned run. Ben Tucker recorded a save, pitching the final inning of the contest.

Offensively, Olivia Bailey and Wesley Harrison led the team with two hits each, while clean-up hitter Jack Kelly delivered the decisive blow with a two-run HR in the fifth inning.

The Rangers finished the season with a 15-9 record, including six wins in their final seven games. Here is the team’s roster along with some individual highlights:

Olivia Bailey- 2B/leadoff hitter, MVP candidate, led team in several offensive categories including a .462 batting average, 31 stolen bases and 33 runs scored (i.e. more than 2 runs per game- just incredible); also very steady at 2B (32 assists, 5 double plays).

Wyatt Dunkel- C, team leader, logged 90% of his time at catcher (with an impressive .935 fielding percentage and 12 assists); after finishing last summer with only 1 strikeout at the plate, broke his record this summer with 0 strikeouts. Over two seasons, that’s 1 strikeout in 124 plate appearances. Amazing.

James Gleeson- 1B, defensive superstar, built like a rock but with soft hands and a beautiful stretch, made highlight plays every game and recorded a .947 fielding percentage in 103 innings at the position (out of a possible 106).

Wesley Harrison- SS, star player, among team leaders in several offensive categories including .406 batting average, 27 hits, 20 RBI and 23 runs; also an excellent fielder (31 assists, 6 double plays).

Jack Kelly- OF/cleanup hitter, sweet swing, all day, led the team with 7 doubles and 25 RBI, homered in state championship game!

Rafe Montgomery- 3B, made several highlight plays in the field and showed great speed on the bases; excellent bunter; had 2nd highest OBP on the team (.549).

Rainer Ortkiese- OF/P, made 11 appearances at pitcher including a start in the state championship game, always stepped up in key moments in the field and at the plate.

Brooks Platford- P/OF, started 7 games at pitcher, led the team offensively with 16 walks, homered against the NYO Firebirds!

Palmer Schultz- P/3B, star pitcher, led the team with 6 wins including the state championship game, recorded a 2.67 ERA in 27 innings pitched; also stole 28 bases.

Lewis Todd- P/OF, started 7 games at pitcher, led staff with a .623 strike percentage, finished 3rd on the team in batting average (.382) and slugging; great baserunner.

Ben Tucker- CF/P, outstanding outfielder (1 error in 31 chances), made 12 appearances at pitcher including closing the state championship game; offensively, among team leaders in OBP (.500).

The Rangers were coached by Marcus Todd, Kent Tucker, Scott Cole, Jeff Schultz and Luke Walker. The coaches and players would like to thank the parents, grandparents and all of the team’s fans for making this season such a fun and successful one. The team would also like to thank Jane Wilkins, Cliff Barshay, Ben Levenbaum, and the entire NYO family for their support.

The fans of the NYO 10U Bulls saw it coming.  The team was playing better with each passing week, narrowly missing a shot at the Championship game in their last two tournaments.  Like a locomotive gathering speed, the fact that the Bulls were crowned Champions of the Lanier Invitational was perhaps inevitable, but still extremely sweet for the 12 young men coached by Ross Conway, Kyle Ciotti, Lee Sheppard, and Will Sheppard.
