PBI Baseball League logoThe 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 have 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. The WINNING coach is to email results to Jim Monaghan at PBI.

2014 PBI Baseball League Rules – The entire PBI Baseball League Rule Set with full index. Please note there are new bat rules for 2014. Rule 1.10 deals with what bats are allowed at each age level; Rule 6.06(d) and 6.06(e) deal with revised penalties for a player using an illegal bat.

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 2014 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. There is NO pitch count rule at either of the high school levels (JV or varsity). NOTE – New York state public schools began using a pitch count at the high school level in 2011. If New Jersey public schools ultimately 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 no matter whether the team is based in New York or New Jersey.

AGE CUTOFF
The age cutoff for the 8U through 14U levels of the PBI Baseball League’s 2014 spring season is April 30, 2014. Whatever age a player will be on April 30, 2014 is that player’s “league age.” A player may “play up” an age level; he cannot “play down” under any circumstances.

REGULAR SEASON
The regular season for all age levels (8U through high school) will begin Sunday March 23 (no game Easter Sunday) and continue through Sunday May 18 – 8 game schedule.

THIS IS A SUNDAY LEAGUE. IF YOU CANNOT COMMIT TO SUNDAYS, THIS IS 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 playoff game. Playoffs and championship games will take place Sunday June 1 and 8 respectively. PBI provides individual awards for players on the first and second place teams.

COST
REGISTRATION FEE – EARLYBIRD PRICE $150 if paid by JANUARY 11th.
AFTER JANUARY 11 – $225 if paid by FEBRUARY 15.

AFTER FEBRUARY 15 – the registration fee is $275.
NO REGISTRATIONS WILL BE TAKEN WHATSOEVER AFTER MARCH 8.

LEAGUE REFUND POLICY – the registration price includes a non-refundable $25 per team administrative fee. No refunds are given once a season has started. Refunds prior to the start of the season will be made via check.

PBI cannot hold a space for you; teams are taken on a first-paid, first-served basis.
