PBI Baseball League 2010 Spring Information

The PBI Baseball League is a Sunday league. Teams are able to play on other days as per agreement by both coaches, but be aware coming into the league that this is designed for Sunday play. If your players are playing for other teams, or are playing other sports, or you are playing in a second league, please be advised that PBI will expect your team’s games in our league to take precedence. Your cooperation coming into the spring season will make things easier for all concerned. If you know your players will not be able to play on Sundays, this is probably not the best league for you to enter.

There is a mandatory league meeting for all registered teams for the spring league on Tuesday February 9 at 7 PM at PBI in Upper Saddle River.

Registration for the spring season is now open. ALL registrations will be taken directly by PBI via our website. NO REGISTRATIONS WILL BE TAKEN OVER THE PHONE. Teams are taken on a first-paid, first-served basis. PBI will NOT hold a spot for teams without payment.

A (formerly Garden State Division) – talent equivalent to a town recreation level team

The AAA diivision is for elite travel teams; the AA Division is for town All Star teams and the A is for town recreation teams. PBI will be offering 46/60 and 50/70 for both 11U and 12U in 2010. Please specify when registering. The 8U will have two divisions – AA and A.

NOTE – your team should pick the appropriate level based upon the skill of your players, not where they are from. It’s possible to have players from a couple of different towns and still be a B or C-level team.

9U through 14U will use a pitch count through all three divisions. 8U will have a 2-inning per pitcher rule. For the sake of clarification, an inning pitched consists of 3 outs.

The age cutoff for all levels of the PBI Baseball League’s 2010 Spring Season is April 30, 2010. Whatever age a player is on April 30, 2010 is that player’s “league age.” A player may “play up” an age level; he cannot “play down” under any circumstances.

The regular season will begin on Sunday March 28 and continue through Sunday May 23. We will not play on Easter Sunday (April 4) OR the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend (May 30). We will play on Mother’s Day. The 8-game regular season will therefore be spread out over 10 weekends, which should give teams plenty of time to get all regular season games in.

The top four teams in each skill division of each age level will meet in a single elimination tournament. The first round will take place on Sunday June 6 and the Championship game will take place on June 13. The PBI Baseball League provides individual awards for players on the first and second place teams.

REGISTRATION FEE – $225 if paid by February 5.
AFTER FEBRUARY 5th – the registration fee is $275.

The league fee includes free insurance for teams that are in need. PBI cannot hold a space for you; teams are taken on a first-paid, first-served basis.
