Winter Update Dec 1

Updated Friday December 2, 2016 by John Hand.

Hello Niskayuna Baseball Families,


With the holiday season in full swing I wanted to take a moment to send a quick note wishing you well and hope that you are able to enjoy time with friends and family.  


The NBL baseball apparel store is open and a link sent separately.

For the 2017 season, Babe Ruth has awarded Niskayuna to host the 15U Mid-Atlantic Regionals!   More information to come.

Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken is now making the official move to align more closely with Little League when it comes to pitch count.  Pitching limits will be on players from ages 7 through 18.  Rules can be found here: 2017 Babe Ruth Official Pitching Rules


These rules are tournament specific, and leagues are permitted to use local league rules for your recreation seasons defined by the Babe Ruth rules and handbook.  This is a first step towards a much broader change to pitching rules in youth baseball and there are still more changes to come.  


Please watch for future communications regarding winter programs and travel team tryouts.  While dates and locations are not yet confirmed we anticipate starting in late January.

NBL has identified several large fund raising projects to improve Nisky Baseball facilities including at the schools.  It is looking for anyone interested in helping, leading, assisting on any or all fundraising activities, including 
a Banquet/Golf Outing fundraiser.  If you have any interest or experience with fund raising, we would appreciate chatting with you.  

NBL is working hard planning the 2017 season and more updates will be coming your way soon. Rec registration will open the first week of January!


In closing, we wish you a very happy holiday and hope to see you at the ballpark next season.


Warmest Regards

Christopher Mennillo

President, Niskayuna Baseball
