When registering, please specify the proper shirt size. The league makes an effort to order the specified size.
Rosters will be published as soon as available in April.
Please make sure you register within the registration period to assure that your child has a spot on a team.
Juniors is a baseball league for players in 8th or 9th grade during the registration period and who are not playing on a traveling team or in another league (Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Little League, Junior League, VFW, etc.). Playing for a school team is fine.
The goal of the program is to provide a positive environment in which participants enjoy playing baseball and continue to improve skills. Teams compete in the East Side Baseball league (formerly Maplewood Baseball) with surrounding communities.
Games will likely start the third week of May and will end with a post season tournament in mid-July. Teams typically practice once or twice per week and play two games per week. Practice time/locations will be set after coordinating with coaches.
Volunteers are essential to the program. Please consider volunteering to be a coach or team manager. If you intend to be a head coach, an assistant coach, or a team manager, please indicate this when you register your child.
The league provides:
Each player must provide:
Players may use any baseball bat if the weight to length differential is -5 or heavier (i.e. a 32 inch bat must weigh 27 ounces or more) and it meets the following safety requirements:
Small Barrel Bat (2¼ inches in diameter)
Big Barrel Bat (larger than 2¼ inches in diameter)
All teams are filled based off of what YOU put down as preference. If you have a specific coach, please make that known at the time of registration. If your child wants to play with his friends, please make sure you and your kids' friends all select each other to avoid any future complications. Teams are rostered at a first come first serve, please plan accordingly.
Typically, refunds will only be given if your child has not participated in any games and there are sufficient players on the team. Refunds are subject to a $10.00 processing fee and other costs already incurred. For example, the cost of a uniform when it has already been ordered. Refunds, as well as the amount of the refund, are left to the discretion of the league director on a case by case basis.
