We do not allow anyone to wear shorts on our campus. This rule applies to men as well as women. There is one exception to this rule; male visitors who wear shorts on campus will not be required to leave the campus.
The dress code for our ballplayers and their immediate families will not change. No one may were shorts except male visitors. The rule that bans shorts applies to all ladies, whether they be visitors or members. This “shorts rule” also applies to all children with the exception of babies who cannot yet walk.
We are looking forward to a great summer of baseball. If you have any questions, please call Carlos Rivera at 219-488-7000. Thank you for helping to make the First Baptist Church Youth Baseball League a success.
