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 will be submitted by the WINNING team via email.

baseball bat rulesEffective on January 1, 2018, the PBI Baseball League will adhere to the new USABat standard. No bats previously approved for use in the PBI Baseball League will be permitted to be used in any PBI Baseball League game. For more information on the USABat Standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.

This new bat standard is IDENTICAL to the one being used by American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball & Dixie Boys Baseball, Little League Baseball and PONY Baseball.

A complete list of legal bats (as of January 1, 2018) can be found here on the USA Baseball website.

All new bats that bear the USABat licensing mark will be permissible for play in the PBI Baseball League. All bats marked with the BFP 1.15 will not be permitted to be used in any PBI Baseball League game. Solid, one piece wood bats are approved for use under USABat with or without the USA Baseball Certification Mark. Multi-piece and composite wood bats must feature the USA Baseball Certification Mark to be approved for play.

Here is what the certification mark will look like:
