The Amsterdam Youth Baseball League will hold its final in-person registration for the upcoming fall season today from 9 a.m. to noon at the concession stand at Isabel’s Field.
You can also register online by logging on to amsterdamyouthbaseball.org. Registration will close on Aug. 12. There will be no late signups.
The Amsterdam Youth Baseball League plans on taking advantage of the better late August weather with new season start times.
Fall baseball will start earlier this year —Aug. 19 — and end earlier — mid-October. There will be no baseball played over the Labor Day and Columbus Day weekends.
Ages for the 2018 season will be used for fall baseball. If a 10-year-old competed in Minors this past spring, he or she will compete in the Majors Division for fall ball. If an 8-year-old competed in Rookies this spring, he or she will compete in the Minors Division. If a 12-year-old competed in Majors this past spring, he or she will have aged out and not be eligible to play.
The Majors, Minors and Rookies divisions will field teams. T-Ball may be available, depending on numbers.
Registration is $55 for Rookies and $60 for Majors and Minors.
The deepest division this fall is in Majors where eight teams are scheduled to compete.
All Amsterdam teams will receive a shirt and hat for the the fall season.
