Welcome to SAYB 2015

Registration for the 16U and 19U leagues is now open. You can register by following the "Registration" button above. More information can be found on the 16U and 19U information page.

Registration for most other leagues will be closing next week.  If you know of a family that is new to the area, let them know it is not too late to sign up.  Especially for the Instructional League.


Will You Coach?

The Junior Minor level is still in search for 6 head coaches.  The teams can’t be formed until 6 more coaches agree to coach a Junior Minor team.  The coach meeting is scheduled for 03/28 and it is preferred that all the coaches are identified prior to the coach meeting.  The Junior Minor season will NOT begin until there are enough coaches.  It takes several hours to form the teams so please contact the Junior Minor Director if you would be willing to coach a team. 

Please contact:
Mark Folska
JM Director

651-402-1802

Little League players (NL, AL, JM, IL ) will be contacted by their coach after the coach meeting the weekend of 3/28.  Information on when practices and games will start will be communicated in April.

2015 National League Players Named

The following players have been drafted to the 2015 National League...

2015 Big League Round One Tryout Results 13-14-15 yr olds

Below you will find the 2nd round tryout times/locations for the AAA/AA and AA/A pools at the 13, 14 and 15 yr old levels.

 

New Age Determination Cutoff Date

Little League International has instituted a change regarding how the age of a player is determined.

In the past, Little League International has used April 30th of each year as the cutoff date for determining the age of a player.  For example, a player born on April 29, 2004 would have been classified as a Little League “11” year old this upcoming season.  However, a player was born on May 5, 2004 would have been classified as a Little League “10” year old.

Starting in the 2015 baseball season, Little League has changed the cutoff date from April 30th to December 31st.  This new age determination date is in effect for children born on or after January 1st, 2006. Children born prior to this date will be unaffected by the new Little League rule (Little League created a “grandfather” clause). For example, any player born in 2006 (whether their birthday is January 6th or December 17th) will be classified as a 9 year old; any player born in 2007 will be classified as an 8 year, and so on.

The following will help determine which league you should register your child in. The SAYB registration section of our website (www.sayb.org) will automatically confirm you are registering your child in the appropriate league.

  • Instructional League (Ages 6-8): â€‹Players born 1/1/2007 – 12/31/2009.

  • Junior Minor League (Ages 9-10): Players born 5/1/2004 – 12/31/2006 (above mentioned grandfather clause).

  • Amer. & Nat. League (Ages 11-12): Players born 5/1/2002 – 4/30/2005 (above mentioned grandfather clause).

  • Big League (ages 13-15) & Sr. Big League (Ages 16-19): Not affected by the above (Little League only).

This age determination change also impacts SAYB’s “play-up” policy. We will no longer be able to honor “play-ups” for players born on or after January 1st, 2006. Players born prior to this date will still be allowed to participate in the one year “play-up” based on the above mentioned grandfather clause.

Shoreview Area Youth Baseball understands the reasoning for Little League’s new policy may be confusing. We have devoted a significant amount of time determining potential issues and opportunities related to this change. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact SAYB at SAYB.reg@gmail.com or info@sayb.com.

FAQ about the new age determination date can be found on the official Little League website.

Thank You,
Merlin Misialek – SAYB registration
