Mercer East Fall Ball Registration Now Open!
Dear Robbinsville, East Windsor, Hightstown, and Roosevelt Families,
Mercer East Fall baseball registration is now open for players league age 12 to 15 from this past spring season. The season starts the week after Labor Weekend and runs until early November. Registration closes August 24 so please register early.
We offer two age levels as follows:
Babe Ruth Prep (players who turned 13 after April 30, 2014 and before May 1, 2015)
This is designed for players who were league age 12 this past spring and will move to Babe Ruth Prep (13 Year old) next spring to play on the larger 60/90 field. This also includes players still league age 13 (turned 13 after April 30, 2014). Fall ball is designed to prep players for adjustment to the larger field. There are typically 2 games per week plus a practice. There is one weeknight game and one Saturday game in the morning or afternoon.
Babe Ruth Major
This level is designed for players league age 13-15 this past season. Even if you already turned 16 you can still play on this level. There are typically 2 games per week plus a practice as time and schedules permit. There is one weeknight game and one weekend game usually on Saturday afternoon.
At both levels, we generally carry a large roster since it is tough for all players to attend every game due to other obligations like football or soccer for example. We generally target 15 players minimum per team. We will form more than 1 team at each level if there is enough interest and coaches. The wait list starts after 15 players until we have enough for a second team at each level.
Note: Please note per District rules this season, you must play with your league age level for fall baseball. No exceptions so my apologies in advance. For example, to be eligible for Majors level, you must have turned 13 before May 1 of this year otherwise you would play at the Prep level for this coming fall season.
If you are interested in coaching, please indicate on the registration and drop me an email. Coaching selections will occur around mid-August once I determine interest and meet interested coaches. It is required that any selected coach conduct practices throughout the fall season in addition to games. Our plan is to also conduct sessions where we combine all levels to practice specific skills (i.e.- pitching, catching, etc).
You can register at www.hewybl.com by selecting the ‘Register Online’ menu item. Cost for fall ball is $90 per player to cover umpires, shirts, and baseballs.
