Who maintains the fields?
Every year the league receives complaints in regards to the conditions of some of the ball fields. The league would like to hire someone to keep up with field maintenance, but it's a luxury CYBSA cannot afford not to mention the municipalities do not allow CYBSA to do any maintenance to their fields. The league collaborates with 6 different municipalities for the fields that CYBSA uses and any/all field issues reported to CYBSA league management are reported along with a repair request/work order to the permit issuing agency accordingly. The league suggests that coaches encourage parents to bring rakes and shovels to work on the fields before games or practices.
