Our Story

Hello there! Thank you for visiting, my name is Nate Fudala. I am the founder/owner, CEO, Janitor, and everything in-between for Backyard Rule, LLC. I am so thankful for the outstanding support we have had since our start in 2015. The inspiration behind this endeavor is the pure joy I have always felt for the game of Baseball. I began playing in Cincinnati, OH where I was born in 1990. Since I can remember.. my loving and supportive parents (Ron and Cindy Fudala) made every arrangement to get me to practices, games and more. As a result, I came upon the opportunity to play ball and attend school at Flagler College (2008-12) in beautiful St. Augustine, FL. After graduating we started “Backyard Rule” and since then have managed to build a respectable following for our circuit tournaments throughout Florida (Port St. Lucie, Miami, Ocala, Tampa, Sarasota, and St. Augustine to name a few). We have also been hired for special events such as birthday parties, team building events and group gatherings. It has been one heck of a ride and I look forward to what lies ahead. Thank you all so much for your support.

 “The Royal Green” was our backyard field in Cincinnati, OH. Thank you Mom for letting us tear up the grass, full well knowing that it indeed would NOT be a selling point for the house one day..  The rules and style of our gameplay was developed in this backyard with my brothers, friends and neighbors.
