The PBI Baseball League offers spring, summer and fall seasons. Spring and fall seasons consist of 8 games and are played on Sundays. The top four teams in each division qualify for a single-elimnation postseason. Summer games are played on weekdays; the regular summer season consists of 12-15 games. In all cases, 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 and fall, or weekdays in the summer, the PBI Baseball League is not be the best choice for your team.

On December 30, 2010 Little League International issued a moratorium on composite bats from the Majors Division on down. The PBI Baseball League will follow suit for the 2012 spring season at the 46/60 and 40/60 field levels. For ALL 50/70 divisions (11U through 13U) and ALL 60/90 divisions at the 13U and 14U levels, the PBI Baseball League will follow the guidelines that Little League International will be using for either their Junior League level or "transitional" 50/70 Pilot Program. Up-to-date information is available on the PBI home page. Both high school divisions of the PBI Baseball League (junior varsity and varsity) will follow the nationally recognized high school guidelines for bats.

PLEASE NOTE - the indoor league does not allow big barrel bats.

9U through 14U will use a pitch count through all divisions. 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 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 for teams no matter whether the team is based in New York or New Jersey.

PLEASE NOTE - the indoor league has a 2-inning limit (6 outs) limit for pitchers at ALL age levels.

The age cutoff for the 8U through 14U levels of the PBI Baseball League spring and summer seasons is April 30 of the current year. The age cutoff for the fall season and the indoor league season is April 30 of the following year. Whatever age a player will be on that date is that player's "league age." A player may "play up" an age level; he cannot "play down" under any circumstances.

The regular season for all age levels (8U through high school) is 8 games in the spring, fall and indoor league seasons, and 12-15 games in the summer.

The top four teams in each skill division of each age level will meet in a single elimination tournament. Playoffs and championship games will take place immediately following the regular season. PBI provides individual awards for players on the first and second place teams.

GENERAL REGISTRATION FEE - $225 for spring and fall, $275 for summer. See the indoor league page for price information.

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.

INSURANCE - FREE from PBI. If you need insurance, contact Jim Monaghan directly - jim@baseballclinics.com
