Friday, 05 March 2010 00:00After a successful trip to the Cooperstown summer tournament and winning their league championships in both the summer and the fall of 2009, the SW Yankees are preparing for the 2010 season and looking for players.
The SW Yankees is an independent select travel baseball team with a winning history and tradition. They play three seasons each year and tournaments throughout the year.
The Yankees play in The National Junior Baseball League (NJBL). Long Island’s premier travel baseball league, the NJBL has served the community with quality competition during the spring, summer and fall since 1990. Every year, teams from Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Brooklyn compete with the goals of providing the community with a well-organized baseball league.
The scheduling is flexible. The spring season starts in the beginning of April. Indoor practices and training will begin in March. All teams play doubleheaders on weekends with a practice during the week. Scheduling is flexible. The level of play is competitive.
The Yankees have players from all over Long Island; there are no residence requirements. To be eligible, the player must have been born after April 30, 1996, must play competitive baseball, and must have families who recognize the commitment but understand the priorities.
