YES, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND EVEN IF YOU’VE BEEN IN THE LEAGUE IN THE PAST. FIVE different times are being offered – you only need to come to one night. 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 2016 SEASON.

MEETING DATES/TIMES
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 31 from 7:30-8:30 PM
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 2 from 7:30-8:30 PM

FALL SEASON SCHEDULES ARE HERE. Standings will be updated as scores are received. The HOME coach is to submit results to Jim Monaghan at PBI via the GameChanger app.














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.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 11U DIVISION THIS FALL?
In the past, the PBI Baseball League has bumped everyone up an age level in the fall. With the new August 31 age cutoff being used at the lower levels, the players who played 10U in spring and summer 2016 will stay 10U and not go to 11U. That said, we are offering a 10U 50/70 division this fall for teams that will be playing 11U 50/70 in spring 2017 who want to get a head-start on the intermediate field size.

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 11 and continue through Sunday October 30 – 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
We are working on a scenario under which ALL TEAMS WILL MAKE THE PLAYOFFS. All championship games will take place Sunday November 6 and 13 respectively. PBI provides individual awards for players on the first and second place teams.
