The PBI Baseball League spring 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 field a team of at least nine players on Sundays in the spring, this might not be the best choice for your team.

SPRING SEASON SCHEDULES, SCORES & STANDINGS ARE HERE. Standings will be updated as scores are received. Scores and play-by-play will be submitted by the HOME team via GameChanger.

BAT REGULATIONS

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 2017 spring 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) 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 uses a pitch count through all divisions. 8U has a 2-inning per pitcher rule. For the sake of clarification, an inning pitched consists of 3 outs. NOTE – New York state high schools began using a pitch count at the high school level in 2011. New Jersey high schools will have a pitch count beginning with the 2017 season. The PBI Baseball League will follow the New Jersey rules for 2017.

AGE CUTOFF
The PBI Baseball League uses the Little League age cutoff dates per the following chart.
