Boys of Summer 2018 Playoffs
Boys of Summer 2018 Fall Season Registration Now Open!
The Long Island Boys of Summer will run a Fall League on Long Island for ages 13U through 18U/College. Fall schedule permits are finalized and we have as many fields in Nassau as we do in Suffolk for the Fall of 2018 - less travel for everyone. The Fall League fee is the same as last year at $1,650.00 which includes the umpires fees and field rentals for the 12 game season including playoffs. The 12-game schedule begins the weekend of Sept 8-9 with Halloween weekend serving as a makeup weekend and the weekend of November 3-4 for playoffs and championship games.
Baseballs will be available for purchase at our final registration meeting in late August at the PAL Stadium's Clubhouse right next to the field. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

BASES, HELMETS, AND PROPER ATTIRE
ATTENTION ALL MANAGERS AND COACHES
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 are an example of fields that do not supply bases but there are others as well and teams must have a set of bases with them.
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.
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.
NASSAU COUNTY PARKS -- IMPORTANT INFORMATION!
If you are playing games at any of the Nassau County Parks, Wantagh, Eisenhower, Cantiague and Bay, there is a $10 parking fee imposed by Nassau County for all non-residents. This has nothing to do with Boys of Summer. This is has been in effect for the past two years at all of these venues during tournaments and league play so please be advised that there is a fee for all non-residents. Thank you for your cooperation.
