Checking in Players at Tournaments Until March 2024

Sep 21, 2023 ·   Tournament News

Managers, we will return to checking in all Players starting in October, and will do so until March of 2024.  Remind your Players to bring their FHC Cards and driver's licenses.  It is a good idea to take a picture of your card, and save it on your cell phone, or at least laminate the card for safe keeping.  Also, check with your Players to see if they need a Replacement Card.  They can contact me with a Replacement Card Form, or apply for one at a Tournament.  It will cost them $25 for a Replacement Card.   ...



Tournament Fees Going Up

Mar 08, 2023 ·   Tournament News

Managers, the last time FHC raised our tournament fees was in January 2017.  Because of the current situation with our economy, it is necessary to raise them again.  We are going through cost increases in the price of Balls, Hotel Rooms, Awards, Screens, Stickers and so on.  For the past 4+ years, we have been giving 6 game balls to each Team at the check-in table.  In order for us to keep doing that, we must have some help from our Team Members. The Tournament Fee increases will be in two stages. The first increase ...



Make sure to have your Player ID Cards at this month's State Tournament

Dec 12, 2022 ·   Tournament News

This weekend everyone must present their FHC Card and Driver's License at the check-in table.  If they do not have their card, they can fill out a Replacement Card Form there with the $25 fee.  If they are on the roster, their license will be sufficient.   This is the final weekend that you can donate to the Hurricane Fund.  Please do so at the sign-in table at each of the Sites.   Mike KnowlesFHC Chairman



Checking Player IDs & Driver's Licenses Nov & Dec

Oct 28, 2022 ·   Tournament News

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. Thanks,   Mike KnowlesFHC Chairman



October 1-2 60s Tournament Canceled

Sep 25, 2022 ·   Tournament News

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 ...



Hurricane Threat to Florida Next Week

Sep 23, 2022 ·   Tournament News

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 ...
