Fall Baseball 2019

Selecting the proper Age Division:  A player's "baseball age" is the player's age on April 30 of the Spring Season.  As of September 1, all players will "age-up."  This means players will play on the fall teams at the age they are on April 30, 2020. 

For example: a player who was still 6 on April 30, 2019 played in 6U with the 5&6-year old players.  This player will be 7 on April 30, 2020, so this player will play in 8U for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 with the 7&8-year old players. 

Registration is open until August 24th  for most divisions. Some divisions will stay open longer, so please check the www.CroftonSports.com to see if your age group is still open.   

Both boys and girls can play in any division.  Please go to www.croftonsports.com to register. 

SELECT Baseball:  If you have been contacted by a coach to play on a Select team for Fall 2019/Spring 2020, please register your player with everyone else in your eligible age group and you will be placed on that coach's select team. 

Please contact baseball@croftonsports.com if you have questions.
