Members of the NJIBL,
I am very pleased with the prospects of what we have in store for the upcoming season. This has been a very busy offseason for the leadership of the league and we are absolutely confident that we are going to have a successful 2012. We have seen tremendous growth of the league for the upcoming year through the migration of 26 existing teams, the formation of an Over 45, an Over 25 Shore and a Shore Midweek Divisions as well as the addition of 13 newly formed teams to the league. We believe that this growth has been the product of our successful track record, sustained growth, superior communication, vision as well as experienced leadership. The NJIBL’s core leadership has been on the job for 4 years and has added new board members to accommodate our growth. We will continue to push the boundaries of how good a recreational men’s baseball league can be.
We are very excited as this upcoming season as we will see the launch of our own internet radio station (NJIBR) that will broadcast 4 nights a week including a Sunday night “Game of the Week”, a new custom built website, the hosting of our first regional tournament, an All Star weekend and the re-launching of the midweek league as well as entries of teams in the Tri-County and ACBL leagues. To top it all off the NJIBL will launch a mobile app as well…yes, a mobile app. All of these benefits at an affordable price with all of our financial resources staying locally.
We look forward to seeing you on the field this season in the NJIBL: the most competitive, well balanced and best run baseball league in the area.
