The actual cost to run this program is about $175 per player.

No one has to try out for a team. Everyone who registers will be assigned to a team and will play in every game. However, to help us balance team strengths, all NEW AND REGISTERED players who have a league age of 8 and older must undergo a Skills Assessment.
Skills Assessments are a series of hitting, throwing and catching exercises. Skills Assessments will take place Saturday, February 2nd or February 9th at the Jackie Robinson Recreation Center, 146th Street and Bradhurst Avenue from 9 am to 12 pm.
