WBL Fall Ball Classic / Old School Baseball League

 

The calendar has turned to August and Summer is coming closer to an end -- so that can only mean one thing -- the WBL's Annual Fall Ball Classic is right around the corner!  This year, the theme will be "old school baseball" -- each team will be a baseball team that is no longer in existence like the Brooklyn Dodgers, St. Louis Browns and the old New York Giants. 
 
Fall ball will be open to players  starting 2nd through 10th Grades in September and games will be played on successive Saturdays commencing September 12 and concluding on October 24 (weather permitting).  
 
Depending on the number of registrations, we traditionally have 4 divisions (i) 2nd Grade; (ii) 3rd/4th Grades; (iii) 5th/6th Grades; and (iv) 7th-10th Grades.  There are no practices, only games.  As is always the case, Fall Ball will be competitive (all divisions will have kids pitch and catch with umpires) and the two teams with the best records in each division will fight it out for the championship with the winners receiving a championship t-shirt.
 
We have been in communication with both flag football and soccer and have determined that the best times to play with the least conflicts are:
 
  • 2nd Grade:  12:00 noon
  • 3rd/4th Grade:  2:00 pm
  • 5th/6th Grade: 3:45/4:00 pm 
  • 7th-10th Grade: 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm om Tamaques 2
 
We will be partnering with Scotch Plains/Fanwood this season so some games may be played at their fields -- which will add a fun "travel" element to the league.
 
The cost is $90.00 for 2nd through 6th Grades and $100.00 for 7th through 10th Grades.  Registration will open August 6th!
 
If you have any questions, please email Jay Berger at bergerny@yahoo.com.
 
We look forward to another great Fall Ball season.
