FALL TRAVEL BALL REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
EGCYBL will be participating in the Empire state travel baseball league (ESBL) in the Fall of 2014. The Travel Ball website URL is below if you want more information:
If your child is interested in fall travel baseball please email the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 22nd, 2015.
Player’s actual age on 5/1/2015:
Remember, fall baseball is played at the age that your child will be on 5/1/15. For example, if your child is 10 years old now, and will be 10 on 5/1/15 they would play 10U level baseball in the fall. If your child is 9 years old today but will be 10 BEFORE 5/1/15, they would play 10U level baseball in the fall.
A Few additional notes:
- Travel baseball is open to kids league age 7 thru 12 (you must be in that age range on 5/1/15)
- Submitted interest in playing does NOT guarantee your child will make one of the travel teams. Travel ball offers a higher level of competition and not all players are suited for it.
- There is additional cost for travel baseball over and above the rec. league registration fee
- Teams will be chosen based on the number kids interested and Manager ratings from last season’s rec. league.
- We will handle new kids to the league on a case by case basis in determining where they may be able to play.
It’s been a busy month for our All Star Teams! Our 11A team came within 1 run of going to the State Tournament. They lost in a heart-breaker to Colonie on a walk-off home run. Congrats to Coach Ackerman and the team for a great All Star Season! Despite going 4-1 our 10A team was eliminated by Hudson who went on to advance to the State Tournament. The 10s are hosting a consolation tournament at our fields this week. Our 12 team also lost to Saugerties in a tough 2-0 game. They too have been eliminated, and are playing in a tournament this week.
The 11B team played solid baseball and finished with a 5-2 regular season record. They won the crossover game against Waterford but came up short in the championship game against Rensselaer. The parents and coaches are proud how the boys battled adversity and bonded together as a team. Congrats to the boys and Coach Tierney on a great post season!
Congrats to our Green 9/10B team who went 3-5, and almost qualified for the District B Tournament Finals. Our Gold 9/10B team has had a spotless post-season going 9-0. Their Championship game vs. Twin Town Red was suspended in the 3rd inning due to rain. They will resume play at the Gilligan Fields on Monday, July 28. Go Gold and Coach Lensink!
Our 8U A and B Teams have had a great post season so far. Our 8A team went 3-1 and took runner up in a tournament we hosted last week/weekend. They lost in a great championship game to Bethlehem 7-5. They also took third place in the Cohoes Tournament and will play in the 8U All County beginning this week at the Twin Town fields in North Greenbush. Congrats to 8UA and Coach Tucker!
Our league’s goals include fun for 4-12 year old children, building teamwork, sportsmanship, and the development of kids’ social, mental and physical skills.
