Tryouts for Majors baseball's spring 2018 season will take place at Nutile Field C on the weekend of October 14-15, 2017 at the following times.

AgeSat. 10/14Sun. 10/15

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.

Note: In 2018 there will be two Major leagues. All 10-12 year old players will be assigned to a team in either the Major 60 or Major 70 league. For the specifics of those leagues and details of which non-rostered players should try out, see the article below or click here.

Registration for 2018 season

Registration is now open soon for all players wishing to baseball or softbal in a SYBS 2018 spring league.

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 2018 season

The SYBS board of directors has decided to implement some new initiatives that will focus on player development.

Practices will be formally pre-scheduled along with games. This will ensure adequate practice time for all players and give families more notice of their schedules to maximize player attendance at practices.

SYBS will provide coaches with enhanced tools to teach and improve the skills players need to perform well and enjoy the games of baseball and softball.

A significant improvement to the baseball program will be to change the format of our 10-12-year-old leagues.There will be 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 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 can be found here.
