PBI Baseball League Fall Season

PBI Baseball League logo

MANDATORY LEAGUE MEETING – we will be holding a MANDATORY meeting for all registered teams here at PBI’s indoor training facility in early September. EVERY team MUST be represented – NO EXCEPTIONS. YES, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND EVEN IF YOU’VE BEEN IN THE LEAGUE IN THE PAST. Six different times will be offered between Tuesday September 1st and Friday September 11th (you will be asked to pick one). Registered teams will receive an email with complete details. Please contact Jim Monaghan if you need more information.

IF YOUR TEAM IS NOT REPRESENTED AT ONE OF THESE MEETINGS, YOUR TEAM WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PBI BASEBALL LEAGUE FALL 2015 SEASON.

FALL SEASON SCHEDULES, SCORES & STANDINGS WILL BE HERE. Standings will be updated as scores are received. The WINNING coach is to email results to Jim Monaghan at PBI.

The PBI Baseball League fall season is a Sunday league. Game times are determined by coaches. Games may be played on another day by agreement of both teams, but if you are not able to have a team of at least nine players on Sundays in the fall, this might not be the best choice for your team.

NEW FOR FALL 2015 – TOWN-ONLY DIVISION

Please specify age, skill, and field size when registering.

NOTE – your team should pick the appropriate level based upon the combined skill of your players, not where they are from.

BAT REGULATIONS
On December 30, 2010 Little League International issued a moratorium on composite bats from the Majors Division on down. Since then, there has been an incredible amount of confusion regarding what bats are and are not legal. Even the umpires get confused sometimes looking at various bats trying to determine their legality.

baseballbatrulesIn an effort to make things simpler for teams, players, and parents, the PBI Baseball League will once again follow the Little League bat regulations for the 2015 fall season at the 40/60, 46/60, 50/70 and 60/90 field levels covering the age levels from 8U through 14U.

40/60 (8U) and 46/60 Divisions (9U through 12U) – Bats cannot have a barrel size bigger than 2 1/4″. Composite barrel bats are prohibited at these levels unless they have been approved by Little League International. For a complete list of approved 2 1/4″ composite bats click here. Additionally, all non-wood approved 2 1/4″ barrel bats must also have the BPF of 1.15 printed somewhere on the bat.

ALL 50/70 divisions (11U through 13U) & ALL 60/90 divisions at the 13U and 14U levels – Players at these levels may use non-wood bats with a 2 1/4″ barrel, but those bats must meet all approved Little League guidelines as per above. All non-wood 2 5/8″ composite barrel bats must meet the BBCOR -3 standard. All non-wood 2 5/8″ non-composite barrel bats may be any drop.

IMPORTANT NOTE – umpires who are assigned to work PBI Baseball League games have the right granted to them by the League to require a batter to use a heavier bat based upon the physical size of the batter. There are some 12, 13 and 14U players who are too big to be using a -10 2 5/8″ barrel bat. For safety reasons, an umpire can determine such a player needs to use a heavier bat.

Both high school divisions of the PBI Baseball League (junior varsity and varsity) will follow the nationally recognized high school guidelines for bats. All bats at those two levels must meet BBCOR -3 standards.

PITCHING REGULATIONS
9U through 14U will use a pitch count through all divisions. 7U and 8U will have a 2-inning per pitcher rule. For the sake of clarification, an inning pitched consists of 3 outs. There is NO pitch count rule at either of the high school levels. NOTE – New York public schools began using a pitch count at the high school level in 2011. If New Jersey public schools follow suit, the PBI Baseball League will then do the same. Until that happens, there will be NO pitch count at the high school level.

REGULAR SEASON
The regular season for all age levels (8U through high school) will begin Sunday September 13 and continue through Sunday November 1 – 8 game schedule.

THIS IS A SUNDAY LEAGUE. IF YOU CANNOT COMMIT TO SUNDAYS, THIS IS PROBABLY NOT THE LEAGUE FOR YOUR TEAM. IF YOUR TEAM IS PLAYING IN A LOT OF FALL TOURNAMENTS, THIS IS PROBABLY NOT THE LEAGUE FOR YOUR TEAM.

PLAYOFFS
The top four teams in each skill division of each age level will meet in a single elimination tournament. Playoffs and championship games will take place Sunday November 8 and 15 respectively. The medal ceremony for champions and runner-ups will be held at PBI’s indoor facility on Monday November 16. PBI provides individual awards for players on the first and second place teams.

COST
REGISTRATION FEE – EARLYBIRD PRICE $150 if paid by AUGUST 3rd.
AFTER AUGUST 1 – $275 if paid by August 19.
AFTER AUGUST 19 – the registration fee is $325.
NO REGISTRATIONS WILL BE TAKEN WHATSOEVER AFTER 5PM FRIDAY AUGUST 28.

LEAGUE REFUND POLICY – the registration price includes a non-refundable $25 per team administrative fee. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN ONCE THE SEASON HAS STARTED. Refunds for teams that drop out of the league prior to the start of the season will be made via check.
