Traditional League for 9-18u (April-August)
 

This is our traditional league for 9-18u age groups since the 1990's.  Below is our planned schedule timeline (includes regular season & playoffs) for all age groups.

New Summer League for 9-12u Teams
 

This is an inaugural summer league for 9-12u teams that begins in July a few weeks after the 9-12u Spring League ends in mid-June. Please understand, this league is separate from our 9-12u Spring League


UPDATES - February 1, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic forced many adjustment during the league season in 2020. NEAAU Baseball will continue to monitor the latest state updates throughout February and make potential adjustments if necessary. Next update will be on March 1, 2021.

Schedule
 
  • Week-to-week pre-schedule became available on January 1, 2021. See above
Super Division Placement
 
  • All teams that wish to compete in the Super Division (DI) that have not already submitted a request form must email tskovron@neaau.org ASAP.
Release of Divisions
 
  • NEAAU Baseball will continue to monitor COVID-19 restrictions within each state during the winter months
  • The plan is to release the league divisions no later than March 1. Surely, we hope to do so sooner
  • Pre-COVID, we would normally release the divisions in early February, but we wish to allow ourselves a little more time due to any potential COVID updates in 2021
Format
 
  • As we announced this past fall, we are planning for a return to some normalcy and a more regular league format
  • We are planning for a return to a format where states are not separated as was done in 2020, but again compete against each other in regular season and Playoffs. We will make the final determination in February.

How League Scheduling Works

1.) Week-to week League Pre-Schedule released in November

  • League weekends, makeup weekends and playoff dates identified. League weekends include doubleheaders

2.) Entry Deadline for 9-14u age groups in on January 10, 2021

3.) 9-14u Age Group Divisions released no later than March 1

  • Teams are assigned their divisional schedule # which determines the weekly team match-ups
  • Pre-Schedule identifies the host team each league weekend
  • Spreadsheet that includes the contact information for all teams available so teams can communicate and determine game times.

4.) Entry Deadline for 15u,16u,18u age groups on April 1, 2021

5.) 15-18u Age Group Divisions become available in April

  • Teams are assigned their divisional schedule # which determines the weekly team match-ups

6.) 9-12u Summer League Divisions become available in May

  • Teams are assigned their divisional schedule # which determines the weekly team match-ups
  • Pre-Schedule identifies the host team each league weekend
  • Spreadsheet that includes the contact information for all teams available so teams can communicate and determine game times.

Forfeits / Unplayed Games / Penalties

  • Forfeits/Unplayed games will NOT be tolerated
  • Penalties include loss of $250 club bond, as well as ineligibility for League Playoffs in current and next league season
  • Unplayed games very well may result in team(s) being removed from the league immediately.
  • ALL games must be completed regardless of a team's record EVERY game matters and impacts the entire league

Rescheduling

  • No game can be rescheduled after the season has begun without first contacting the age group leader
  • If you are having trouble rescheduling or reschedule a league game(s) do NOT wait until the end of the season to notify your age group leader. Regardless of the circumstances, it is extremely difficult for NEAAU Baseball to help resolve the matter if it is not provided with enough time to do so.

Rain Outs

  • Rained out games should be rescheduled on the next upcoming rain date if not already being used by another rained out league game
  • Non-League games should be rescheduled to allow the completion of weather cancelled league games
  • If cancelled games are not completed one or both teams may not be ineligible for the League Playoffs
