There is still time to register for the upcoming Fall Ball season at NJB, however you need to act fast. Teams will be forming this week and registrations will be accepted up to the point that teams rosters are full. To register, visit our page at njb.siplay.com.
The NJB Board of Directors has voted to change the age grouping for League IV (Instructional Pitching Machine). The Board has proposed modifying the by-laws to allow 5 year old players the option of playing either T-Ball (League V) or Instructional Pitching Machine (League IV).
Under this proposal, T-Ball ages will be from 4 to 5 years of age and League IV will be 5 to 6 years of age. Parents of players may at their sole discretion decide which format best fits the ability and desire of their child. This proposal does not affect any other leagues nor does it allow players who decided to play in League IV as a 5 year old to move up to League III as a 6 year old, except as allowed under the Age/Grade rule.
Per our by-laws, this change will be considered for final adoption at the scheduled Board Meeting on 8/7/16 at 6:00PM at Pizza Chef. All parents/coaches of players in the league are always welcome at any board meeting. If you have any questions, you may attend the board meeting or email us at email@example.com.

The regular season is underway in most leagues and play has been superb so far at the parks. Even though the season is young, it’s time to start the process for selecting the NJB All-Star teams for the summer. NJB will sanction a team in all age groups from 6 to 14 years of age where enough players are interested. More information on the all-star process and obligations can be found here.
Players interested in playing on an all-star team must register by May 11th by visiting theNJB All-Stars page and clicking on the “Sign up for All-Stars” link.
Coaches interested in managing an All-Star team this summer should contact their league president or email email@example.com by May 6th.

Registrations for the spring season have been strong with most leagues at or very near our planned capacity. The new online site appears to be working very well and is providing a very clear picture of where league numbers stand. Therefore, the Board of Directors has approved an extension of the early registration period for Leagues 1, 2, 3, and Babe Ruth to March 6th. The early registration period for League 4 & 5 will remain open through at least mid-March.
This action waives the late fee for registration only. Once a league reaches the planned capacity, a waiting list will be started in the order of registration. We will evaluate the ability to expand the number of teams based on the availability of players, coaches and sponsors.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
