Bayshore Little League Safety Compliance Initiative: Locking Batting Cages


December 26, 2019

Re: Bayshore Little League Safety Compliance Initiative: Locking Batting Cages – Access limited to Approved Volunteers

Dear Little League Parents and Volunteers,

Over the past few years, Bayshore Little League has experienced unprecedented growth and the overall demand to utilize our facilities has also increased. The Bayshore Little League Board of Directors has continually worked during this time to improve our league in order to better serve the children in our community.

As the Organization designated by the City of Tampa with responsibility to manage and regulate the safe usage of the park/facility on Davis Islands, Bayshore Little League must meet the standards set by the City of Tampa Parks & Recreation department and its facility Usage Agreement. The Agreement requires that we secure the facility both for safety and to the limit of liability of both the City of Tampa and Bayshore Little League.  As a result, effective immediately, Bayshore Little League will be locking our batting cage areas in an effort to avoid potential injuries caused by non-approved volunteers having access these areas and to continue to protect our resources for the Little League and its youth softball and baseball participants. This is consistent with every other little league that operates on City owned fields.

The board has approved the Master Lock Vault Enterprise app, which can be downloaded by approved volunteers on the Android or IOS mobile device, to secure our facilities. All current approved volunteers will be receiving an email invitation with detailed instructions to create your accounts.  The Master Lock Vault system provides an electronic record when each volunteer’s code is used. 

All approved volunteers must comply with the rules and regulations for batting cage and field usage. Allowing unauthorized persons or teams to use or access the cages or fields without proper written authorization from the President and an approved and validated release of liability will result in revocation of access. Finally, as a reminder, children under the age of 18 years old are never allowed to throw batting practice.

If you would like to be considered to become an approved volunteer please click the following link to begin the process to gain access by submitting a background using the following link: Apply to Volunteer at Bayshore Little League.

Becoming an approved volunteer at Bayshore Little League is not a right, it is a privilege. By completing the confidential Federal and State background checks, getting CPR & Concussion training, and attending our PCA workshop, a volunteer meets the requirements set by the Bayshore Board of Directors.

We appreciate your support and understanding as we make these modifications in support of Bayshore Little League, Little League International & our District 6, the South Tampa Community and its players.

Please contact the Board of Directors to discuss any questions related to the City of Tampa Facilities Usage Agreement. 

Respectfully,

Dan Greco
President
Bayshore Little League
