2022 WCFBA LEAGUE REGISTRATION IS OPEN

Hello All WCFBA Members and welcome to our 2022 League Announcement:

Register here: "2022 League Registration"

The West Coast Fantasy Baseball Association (WCFBA) returns for its 21st season of league play. League play begins March 20th and continues into October. League games are played throughout the Bay Area with stops in the South Bay, the East Bay, the North Bay, and on the Peninsula.

At this time, we are looking for full time players to join us for the coming season. Full-time players will be entered into a player draft in early March.

Team Structure :
All players who sign up, whether they be A’s, Giants or invited guests, will be combined into one league draft.  

· Five teams of twelve players each
· 15 game schedule for each team
· All games are played on Sundays
· No games are scheduled during tournament weekends (San Diego, Lodi, and Monterey)
· No games are scheduled during most holiday weekends (We play on Father’s Day weekend)
· Wood bats are mandatory for all players except those 60 and over and any ladies
· No pitcher may pitch more than seven innings in any one game

Fees:
Full Season Player – Full-timers will pay a $260 fee, this must be paid before the draft. Your name will be placed in the player draft and you will be guaranteed a roster spot on one of the teams for the upcoming season. If you are planning to play at least ten of the fifteen scheduled games, we suggest you sign up as a full-time player.

Pool Player - Part-timers will pay $25 per game payable at game time. A pool player should respond to the weekly email soliciting extra players for that week’s games. The pool coordinator will work with the team coaches to fill their openings that week with those that have signed up to pool play. There is no guarantee a spot will be available, but we will do our best to accommodate everyone.

Full-timers who wish to act as pool players in games their regular team is NOT playing in will only receive a roster spot if there are not enough part-time pool players available. If selected as a pool player, full-timers will pay $15 per game.

Pre-Season Draft:
Prior to the start of the season, those who have signed up to be full-time players will be entered into a player draft. Team rosters will be announced after the draft so that teams can prepare for their first games. The 2022 schedule will begin on Sunday, March 20th. At the end of the season the teams will be disbanded and redrafted the following season.

NOTE - We WILL NOT accommodate requests for players to be placed with specific friends on the same team. We do not want the league to be comprised of cliques and feel everyone should enjoy the experience of playing with different people each season. Minor exceptions will be made with respect to families and carpools, but please understand our goal.

The Pool Player Process:
Those of you who cannot join us on a regular basis are welcome to join the player pool. An individual will be designated as the Pool Coordinator for the league. This individual will advertise each week’s scheduled games via email requesting available pool players to sign up. Any part-time player who is interested in playing in any of that Sunday’s games should sign up for that week's games on the WCFBA web site. You must sign up to play by Thursday at noon. The Pool Coordinator will work with the team managers to determine the needs of each team every week and assign the most appropriate pool players to the teams that need them. Rosters will be filled and announced by Friday morning. Part-timers should make sure we have your current email address so you can start receiving the invites in March.

Playing Rules:
These will be covered in detail later, but in order to make our games a safe and enjoyable experience, we have made some modifications to the standard baseball rules. We WILL play the game of baseball except for some changes which will reduce the potential for injuries and provide a competitive environment for all players. For doubleheaders, no new inning will start after three hours.  For tripleheaders, no new inning will start after two hours and 25 minutes.

What to do Next:
FULL-TIMERS have three things to do by Friday February 25th:

1) If you have NOT already done so in a prior season, Log into the WCFBA web site and follow the link for league signups. "2022 League Registration"
2) During the registration process you will be prompted to sign our online Waiver and Code of Conduct forms.
3) If you have NOT already done so in a prior season or if you have had recent life changes, fill out the player emergency medical contact form online. This is optional, but strongly encouraged so we can help contact the right people in the event of an emergency. Log in at the league web site http://www.wcfba.org and use the Player Login link at the left.
4) You can pay the league fees of $260 online when you register. Look for the link on our home page.

PART-TIMERS (Pool players) have nothing to do right now. Wait for the emails calling for pool players about five days before each play weekend and if you can play, respond back as soon as possible. We'll do our best to get you in.

If you have any questions, email us back at league@wcfba.org.
Thanks and hope to see you all in March,
West Coast Fantasy Baseball Association – League Secretary
