News and Announcements

Hello to All!
I have some important information for everyone for the upcoming 2023 baseball season. Please make sure you mark your calendar and attend our 2023 Coordinator’s preseason meeting, it will be held on February 5, 2023 at 10:30 AM. The meeting will be held at Greenleaf Community Center located at 1187 ½ Parker St. Springfield, MA 01129. It is required that every organization or independent team has a representative there. Please read the information regarding registration fees so you know why.
TEAMS REGISTRATION PROCEDURES

The registration fee for each team consists of league operating expenses and a premium for accident insurance.
This registration fee must be paid in full by the second organizational meeting. Any team not paying in full at this meeting will not be included in the schedule.

Fees per team for 2023:
HANK AARON * $200.
ROBERTO CLEMENTE * $275.
WILLIE MAYS * $275.
PEE WEE REESE * $275.
SANDY KOUFAX * $315./ Plus $30 for A division post season Sandy Koufax play
MICKEY MANTLE * $345. Includes $30 for post season Mickey Mantle play

  • A fee of $200.00 will be charged to any organization that requires us to rewrite schedule, because of adding or removing a team. Anytime a team wants to enter JLS late because they waited for another league to come together and it did not, will not only pay the $200 late fee but also additional late fees to be determined by the Board.
    (2023) In an effort to get organizations and teams to attend coordinators and team meetings, JLS will allow teams to take the following discounts.
    • If a team/organization attends the preseason 2023 Coordinator’s meeting (February 5, 2023), they can deduct $25.00 from each team’s registration fee.
    • Each coach that attends the first and second team meetings, can deduct a total of $25.00 from that team’s registration fee (coach must attend both meetings to claim the $25.00). No person can represent more than 1 team.

Recently, the JLS Board of Directors installed a memorial plaque for our late President Pete Brown at Picknelly Field. With this plaque, Pete’s legacy will forever be remembered for years to come.
Stop by Picknelly next season to see it.

Teams in T-ball, 8U, 10U and 12U can add players to their roster until May 31st, 14U & 16U can add players until June 21st. Any change to your roster must be approved (in writing) by a member of the Board of Directors (JLS Organizational Rules 2.3).

You must have the following in your hand: 

 

  • You must have a player pass for the player.
  • You must have your original approved roster.
  • You must have 5 copies of your roster with the new player added to it.

 

Email the revised roster to jlsforms@comcast.net (This is important do not forget).

Take the three items listed above to any member of the JLS Board of Directors. That Director will approve the new roster and sign one copy and return it to you. The four remaining copies will be retained for the appropriate parties.

Your new player is ready to join your team!

It appears that many coaches/coordinators are having problems filling in and saving these forms. You MUST follow the below instructions to prevent having problems. If you are following these directions and you are still having problems make sure you have the most current version of Adobe Reader which is available at www.adobe.com for free.

We now have a YouTube video to show the proper way to download and save JLS pdf files 
Save JLS Forms


 






  1. Go to www.jlsbaseball.com web site at the bottom of the page open the league
    forms page.

     

  2. Open form needed and download. Now before filling in
    form go to upper right hand corner and right click on SAVE box. Save this form
    on your computer in your Documents folder.

     

  3. Now close the form from the web site and open the one
    in your documents file. Fill in this form and when completed save it again to
    your documents folder.

    is in addition to your regular league fees.
    In certain instances the League can levy additional fees for teams that enter extremely late or under odd circumstances.
