Majors tryouts

Tryouts for Majors baseball's spring 2018 season will take place on the weekend of October 14-15, 2017. All players who wish to be on a Majors team must be registered prior to the above tryouts. Players rostered on Majors teams in 2017 will not have to try out as their spots will be preserved provided they are registered before the tryouts take place. The specifics for non-rostered players who must try out will be annouced soon including the actual times of the tryouts by age group.

Registration for 2018 season

Registration will be open soon for all players wishing to play in a SYBS 2018 spring league. Because Majors tryouts are later this year than in the past and because we are making some changes to our registration website, online registration will open before the end of September. As in the past, there will be an early bird discount for all players who register on or before October 13, 2017.

Upcoming changes for 10-12yo 2018 baseball season

A significant improvement to our baseball program will be to change the format of our 10-12-year-old leagues. Through 2017, there have been two leagues: Majors or AAA, based on fall tryouts.

For 2018 the SYBS board has decided to offer two Majors Leagues: A Major 60 league and a Major 70 league. The Major 70 league for players 11 and 12 will be played on a larger diamond measuring 70 feet between bases, and 50 feet from the pitcher's mound to home plate. The Major 60 league will continue to be played in the traditional 60-foot diamond.

All of our 10 year-old players, as well as those 11 and 12 year-olds who would benefit from additional time in the smaller diamond, will be drafted into the Major 60 league.

More details on these changes are being finalized by the Board of Directors and will be published soon on this website. An email will be circulated announcing these and other timely SYBS news items in the very near future.
