Folks, here is information about Spring and Summer NEBAS.

First off, we are very proud and happy to announce that Cresskill Baseball will be the host of SUMMER NEBAS 2022. Cresskill will be sending out information in late February for the summer season which will start tentatively on Monday, June 13th.

Spring NEBAS registration is open NOW for anyone wishing to MAIL IN payments or pay by credit. Regardless of whether you are paying by check or credit card, we NEED the TOWN COMMITMENT FORM to be emailed back in Excel as we use the information on the form to set up the season for grouping similar level teams, scheduling, and coaches contact lists. The Town Commitment Form can be found under Documents.

Here is some quick info on SPRING NEBAS 2022.

Registration fee is $125.

Deadline for registration is Friday, March 18th. Deadline has been extended to Wednesday, March 23rd.

Check payments – Mail checks (payable to Closter Recreation) to: Closter Recreation, Po Box 143, Closter NJ 07624

Credit card payments – available on the NEBAS website.

The league is set up for games to be played ON Sundays unless both teams agree amicably to move the game to another day. The season will consist of 8 regular season games played on Sundays starting on Sunday, April 10th. With Easter on Sunday April 17th, a game will be SCHEDULED for that date with the expectation that no one will play or be expected to play but it needs to be made up before the end of the regular season. ALSO right around that time is spring break with many towns having different weeks off from school. Again, the same thing- a game will be scheduled to be played there with the expectation that some towns won’t have enough kids to play due to vacations. And lastly the last game of the regular season will be Memorial Day weekend. Again, games will be scheduled there but we are asking all towns to work with each other and get these games in on a mutually agreed upon day.

Game times on the schedule will ALL be posted on the website as TBA on Sundays and home teams will be responsible for scheduling the actual game time with their opponents.

Playoffs for the top four teams in each division will be on Sunday June 5th and 12th. Top two teams get individual and team trophies. Summer NEBAS starts the week of June 13th.

We will be offering the following levels:
• 8u coach pitch
• 8u kids pitch
• 9u
• 10u
• 11u
• 12u
• 13u
• 14u

All 8u-12u levels are played on 46×60 fields, no 50×70 levels in the spring or summer.
Historically, we do NOT have enough teams to offer 9/10u intermediate or 11/12u intermediate, so any combination level teams would be placed at the higher level, IE, you enter a team of 11 and 12u players, they would play in the 12u level.

Please see Player Eligibility tab.

Each team will have 4 home and 4 away games. The home team will supply and pay for umpires for their home games. For the spring, we recommend one umpire for 8u kids pitch-12u and 2 umpires for 13u and 14u.
The NEBAS board will send umpires to the semi-final and final playoff games, but both teams will split the fees for the umpire on the field.

Rules for SPRING NEBAS will be posted in early March for everyone’s review. There will not be a pre-season meeting, but everyone will receive all information via email prior to the season.

Any questions, please send me an email. PLEASE feel free to share this email with other towns AND if you are not the travel baseball contact person any more. PLEASE send this to them but let me know who has replaced you in this capacity.

Thank you,
