2018 Team Registration

 Baseball Order Form

 

   The Long Island Boys of Summer registration meeting for the summer of 2018 is scheduled for Tuesday, February 13 at 7:30pm in the Lecture Hall D105 at Suffolk CCC Brentwood. We have some exciting news to share with you for 2018 and we will have giveaways for some lucky managers and coaches in attendance. We've added divisions, events, and even more fields. This meeting is critical to implement new ideas and improve the BOS. We need your feedback. We experienced tremendous growth in the last four years and want to make sure we're meeting your needs.

    There has been an overwhelming response to register for this summer league for all ages 13 through 18. A $500 deposit will hold your spot in our National (most competitive) or American Divisions. The floor will be open for discussion on everything from national and local tournaments, umpires, fields, all-star games and dates, playoff schedules, Citifield games, and Ducks Stadium games. In addition to bringing your deposit, please fill out the 2018 Online Team Registration Form beforehand as well. If your team will be playing in the 16U or 17U Invitational Scout Division, please select "National" when registering and we will adjust on our end.

     The Boys of Summer is proud to announce that we will run our 4th Annual Nassau County Parks and Recreation Tournament on Memorial Day weekend. Registration forms for that and our other BOS tournaments, Port Jeff Sports Father's Day, St. Charles July 4th Blast, and Baseball Bargains Columbus Day Wood Bat are now available online using the links on the front page of the website.

    Order forms for baseballs can be found here. The league is going back to the NCAA Spalding baseballs this summer. We have added more fields in Nassau County and we are excited to continue in our relationships with the other venue owners around Long Island.

     We also expect another great college division. Single players can register for the college division, which includes incoming freshman players. Please email us at liboysofsummer@gmail.com with your name, contact information and get on our free agent list for college players. Our 13-team college division will be expanded to 14. The fee for individual college players will be $625 for the season which includes everything from uniforms, umpires fees to baseballs and league registration.

     If you have an announcement for tryouts or a clinic you're running in an academy please send it to us to be posted. It's free.

BASES, HELMETS, AND PROPER ATTIRE

 

ATTENTION ALL MANAGERS AND COACHES

BASES

All teams must have a set of bases for each game. Some fields accommodate us with bases but others do not so please remember to bring them to all fields. Town of Brookhaven fields do not supply bases.

COACHING HELMETS

We would like to reiterate what has been said at every league meeting in 2016. Coaches must wear coaching helmets for safety reasons. You will not be permitted to coach on the bases if you do not wear a coaching helmet. Umpires have done a good job enforcing this rule all season but have had some push-back from some of you and some resistance which has caused poor relations at some fields. This should not be an issue -- you cannot coach without a helmet. Thank you for your cooperation.

COACHING ATTIRE

Another hot topic at the midway point of our season is the coaches attire. We agreed at the March meeting that all coaches must be properly dressed for games. A coaches shirt, team jersey or pullover is acceptable. Coaches shorts or baseball pants are also acceptable. NO denim or cutoff shorts, slacks, work pants, capris, skirts, work boots or dress shoes can be worn while coaching the bases. This also should never be an issue to be dealt with at the field.
