Please see below for some additional details and information about the UMYBSL Travel Baseball Program: 

 

  • Travel players must also participate on an intramural UMYBSL team within the appropriate division for the 2021 spring season 

  • Intramural games are on Saturdays and travel games are on Sundays

  • The travel season is 7-8 weeks with approximately 9 games; plus at least one playoff game

  • Half of the games are home and half are away. Away games are often in central NJ, within a one-hour drive 

  • In the past, spring travel teams had one practice /workout per week beginning in December or January at a local indoor facility. Indoor workouts offer professional instruction to enhance hitting and pitching skills. Individual team coaches will provide direction regarding plans for this winter.

  • During the spring, travel teams practice once or twice a week, at the discretion of the coaches. Travel players are expected to attend both spring travel practices and intramural practices.

  • Travel players cover the cost of playing on the team and the purchase of uniforms. More information on costs will be provided closer to the season. 

  • UMYBSL makes every effort to balance the league’s guiding principles of inclusion and delivering a quality baseball experience to players and families with the practicalities of fielding and managing a competitive travel team. Travel teams will be selected at the discretion of the coaches and it is not a guarantee that all players who tryout will make a travel team.
