Change the "runs per inning" to five (5) instead of seven (7), in order to get more innings in. There would still be an open inning.No, keep 7 runs.

Managers, Players and family members, your FHC family is teaming up with two of our best to raise Hurricane Relief Funds. Hilda and Jennis Sills will be heading up the FHC Committee, and will be coordinating our efforts to help as many families as we can.
We are asking every single FHC person to donate at least $5.00. We have several thousand people in FHC, and if every person gave $5, we would be ecstatic. We will have Fund Boxes at every Site for the upcoming November and December Tournaments. You may donate ther ...
Managers, please inform your Players that we will be checking FHC cards and Driver's License IDs at the November and December tournaments. Anyone can make a mistake, but forewarn your guys that if they forget their info in the car, just say so and go back and get it. Every once in a while, a Player gets indignant, makes a big deal about not knowing, and someone gets sent home early. It is your responsibility to pass along all messages to your Players.

Managers, all of us in FHC are heartbroken over the results of the Hurricane. Whether you are a Player, Manager, Coach, Umpire, Board Member or family member, every single person has been, or still is being affected by this terrible storm and water surge. I know in my house, we are praying daily for all of those that are still dealing with the aftermath. We are still on for our 60+ and 50s tournament in Polk County, and will be glad to get back and see our softball friends and families. God bless you all.

Guys, because of the weather issues, and the lack of communication, we are extending the October 1st deadline for Rosters being frozen for the State Championships by one week, to October 8.
Men, I hope you all got through this mess healthy and wise. Remember that material things can be replaced, but not lives. We lost power for over 2 days, but we are ok.
God bless you all,
Mike KnowlesFHC Chairman

Managers, in the past years, your FHC Board of Directors has leaned on the "safe side" on and off the field. This time is no different. Unless you live in a shoe, we all know about the impending Hurricane that is bearing down on Florida. Not even the experts know exactly where it will hit later this week, but we do know that most everyone will be affected by torrential rain and possibly high winds. Because of this, we are canceling next week's tournament in Polk County. All of us must take the time now to prop ...
Managers, we are monitoring the possible Tropical Storm/Hurricane that is moving into the Caribbean in the next couple of days. As you know, there are always possible scenarios, but we should get a better picture from the Weather Channel by Sunday or so. It could move out into the western Gulf, stay in the middle, or come close or over Florida. We have 80 or so teams registered for the tournament, so we want to play, but we will not put any of you in danger just to play a softball game for a tee shirt. Every one of ...
