Pith Count App Memo:
Having trouble with the new Baseball Manitoba Pitch Count App? Find some solutions below. 
 
1) As a Head Coach, you must first be registered on RAMP to receive access to your team's Pitch Count App Account. It is important that, through RAMP, you are registered as the HEAD COACH of your assigned team. This is done through your local association. 
 
PLEASE NOTE: 
New coaches and teams will be added as rosters are approved and uploaded, you will receive an email invitation once this has been completed for your team (this process is not instant and may take up to 48 hours to complete). If you haven’t had your roster approved yet, be sure to keep track of your pitch counts on paper to enter once you get access to the app!
 
2) The email invite to join the app is only sent to the Head Coach (be sure to check your email, as well as your junk mail folder). The Head Coach must first join and create an account. If the Head Coach is not the individual managing pitch counts for their team, they can share their email and password associated with the pitch count app to whomever is entering the data. 
 
3) While both teams should track their own pitches, only the HOME TEAM enters the information into the App. Once the pitch counts are completed by the home team, they will submit the game to the visiting team. The pitch counts for both teams are then to be verified by the visiting team and then the game becomes complete/verified. 
 
4) If a pitcher throws over their threshold, it is very important that only the threshold number is recorded in the App. The App will not recognize that the pitcher was allowed to finish their batter, and revert back to the lower days rest. If the number above the threshold is recorded, then the App will recognize that as more days rest than is actually required. Example: If an 18U player pitched 106 pitches, but finished the last batter, they should be recorded at 105. 
 
5) A game can be edited after it has been approved if it has been discovered that the pitch counts are incorrect. Either team can initiate this process, but only the Home Team can edit the pitch counts once the game has been re-opened. Only games that have been verified can be reopened with this process. 
To initiate the reopening of the game: 
  • Step 1. From the Games screen, tap the verified game you wish to reopen.
  • Step 2. Tap . REQUEST TO REOPEN GAME.
  • Step 3. Enter a message to the opposing coach to request the game to be reopened. 
  • Step 4. Tap Request to Reopen 
  • Step 5. The opposing coach will receive a notification that the game has been requested to be reopened. The opposing coach must then open the app and choose either Reopen Game or Deny 
  • Step 6. Reopen Request.
  • Step 7. If the game is reopened, the Home Team coach can edit the pitch counts and resubmit for approval. 
  • Step 8. If the reopen request is denied, the game will automatically revert to Verified status.
 
 
If you are still having technical issues with the app, please log out of the app and re-log in.

Memo from Jason Miller, Manitoba Baseball Association 

Pitch Count App

The 2022 Teams and players have started to be uploaded in to the Pitch Count App. Any team that was fully entered into RAMP (with coaches and players) as of yesterday was uploaded and should be usable by the coach. Coaches will need to log into the App (or create and account) with the same email they registered for baseball. I will continue to upload rosters each week day, until May 15 (roster deadline).

In the meantime, ensure that your full team roster (including all players and coaches) are entered accurately into our online registration system - RAMP. Note that teams must be named properly and uniquely; using only the age category as the team name could cause the team to upload incorrectly. Even though that may be the only team in your club in that age category, it may not the only team in the Province with that name. Do not name the team “11U”, give the team a name like “Blue Jays”, “Bisons”, or “Team Smith”.

Goldeyes 50/50s

As was the case in 2021, The Goldeyes will have employees selling 5050 tickets at our games this year. There is no need for volunteers from clubs to sell tickets at the games. The Goldeyes will, however, continue to provide funds from these games to Baseball Manitoba clubs and teams that are representing Manitoba and travelling to competitions out of Province. Please note, the following games will have 25% of the total 50/50 sales forwarded to Baseball Manitoba:

The 2022 50/50 allocations for 2022 are posted here - https://www.baseballmanitoba.ca/administration/policy/mllc-funding-and-5050s

Be sure to let your members know about the game in which your club/team is benefitting from the Goldeyes 50/50. Use Social Media, emails, or get a group and attend the game!

Good luck to all as we get on the diamond this week!
