Syosset Baseball Association to Host New Summer League

Syosset Baseball Association is proud to launch the inaugural year of summer intramural baseball for all Syosset Baseball players who love baseball and want to continue playing throughout the summer.

This program, to be known as The Graduate League, will take all players ages 7 through 11 that wish to play summer baseball and be on teams throughout the summer, coached by either a college coach or a retired coach.  Rules that this league and players will be playing under will be the rules that your child will be playing under in spring 2011, thus “The Graduate League”. These games will be umpired by outside umpire crews, similar to the spring intramural umpires, but a different crew with team standings. Also, a Championship game and an All-Star game will be played. Trophies will be awarded to the winners.

Games will be played throughout the summer with both a weekday and weekend game. By having outside coaches, the biases that are both real and perceived are eliminated and each and every participating player will be judged on their own merits and skills without anyone knowing their prior abilities or friendships.

All players will receive a jersey and hat with pants, socks, cleats and other apparel supplied by the player. All games will be played at the local Syosset fields that your child presently plays at during the Spring intramural season.

Games will begin the week of July 6 and run for five weeks during this upcoming summer.

Syosset Baseball Association’s goal is to provide a professional vehicle to help to continue and build the skills of all of the players in Syosset Baseball Association and reinforce the mission of Syosset Baseball Association as stated on our website www.syossetbaseball.org.

Registration fee is $140 per player with cutoff date of May 31. All eligible players who wish to take advantage of this exciting league must register by May 31.

Registration forms can be downloaded from the Syosset Baseball Association website at www.syossetbaseball.org and mailed to the Syosset Baseball Association post office box along with registration fee payment.

The association looks forward to everyone enjoying this new addition to the Syosset Baseball Association, and they hope this program will enhance the Syosset Baseball Association brand to the community they service.
