· WOOD BAT- we are offering a wood division for all ages during all seasons. As long as there is interest we will set it up. Contact me with additional questions.
· 10 YEAR OLDS- 10-75’ BASES OR 10-70' BASES- if you’re interested in a 10-75’ or a 10-70' division this year let me know. You will be able to sign up on line for that division. If we have enough teams we will go with it. We had very good response last year.
· 12-90’ DIVISION- a few managers have asked me to include a 12-90’ division for the spring and summer season. Usually we only do a 12-90’ for the fall season BUT if I have enough interest I will set up a division for the spring and summer as well. If you are interested either let me know, or, when you register for the season indicate 12-90’ on the registration form. If we have enough interest we will go with it. You can also consider playing up in a weak 13-year-old division if we don’t do a 12-90’ division.
· FIELDS- if your team is requesting a field from the TOWN OF HEMPSTEAD or the TOWN OF HUNTINGTON you must contact Frank Sullivan to let him know, by email, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE- There are Huntington field use charges. These fees go to the TOWN, not the league. Additionally, teams that are 13 and older must have a Town recreation ID card. Contact the Town for further information, 631 351 3103 about the card. Contact Frank Sullivan about Town field usage fees.
· The registration deadline for the SPRING is March 10. Your team must be registered on line at www.nationaljunior.com and we must have a $200 deposit on file by that date. The scheduling meeting date, time and location will be announced in early March. Managers that are registered and have a deposit on file will be notified. The SPRING season will begin the weekend of April 2. The registration deadline for the SUMMER: 13 and older- April 30; 12 and younger June 2. The 24 game summer season for the 13 and older begins the weekend of June 4, for 12 and younger the 16 game season begins the weekend of June 25. FOR 13 AND OLDER, AS WELL AS 12 AND YOUNGER, THE PLAYOFFS WILL BE OVER BY AUGUST 14, NO EXCEPTIONS.

· INSURANCE- remember- your liability and medical insurance is included in your league fee- your team must be registered and there must be a deposit on file with the league for your insurance to be effective. Our insurance runs from January 1 to Dec. 31 of the year that you are registered. The insurance is effective as long as you are registered and playing in the National Junior Baseball League (NJBL). It covers your players and coaches for liability and medical during practices, tournaments and games played in NY or outside of NY. It is a secondary insurance policy.
· TOP MANAGER AWARDS- NJBL umpires will vote on a top manager for all 3 seasons in the following divisions: 60’ bases and 75/ 90’ bases. The top managers will be presented with the Eric Reistetter Manager of the Year Award at the annual umpire dinner held in late November for that year. Eric, who died in a tragic accident in February 2007, was a well-respected person, manager and umpire, who knew and understood the game of baseball and enjoyed teaching the game to our youth. The award winners for 2014 were Bobby Murphy- Oceanside, Joe Hennie- Central Islip and Terri Rachuta- Blaze. The award winners for 2015 were- Nancy Indimine- Smithtown; Angelo Randazzo- Rebbles; John Musmacker- LI Athletics.
