Metuchen Baseball and Softball Showcase - Sunday February 23rd and Sunday March 1st - register online

UpdatedThursday February 6, 2020 byChief Information Officer.

The Baseball and Softball Showcase will take place on Sunday February 23rd and Sunday March 1st. Baseball players registered to play in the Minors, Majors or Intermediates divisions and softball players registered to play in the Minors(U8), Majors(U10) or Seniors (U12/U14) divisions should attend one of the two sessions. The attached flyer provides details regarding showcase location, times and links for online registration. All unregistered walk-ups will automatically be placed in the last time slot for their division if slots are available - otherwise they will be asked to return the next week.

Playing up - From time to time there is a player or two whose baseball or softball skills development far surpasses all the players in their age or grade appropriate division and most of those the division above them. In such cases, the parents/guardians of such players may request that their child be considered to play up one year/grade above their baseball or softball year. In order to do this, the parent/guardian must email the Player Agent, Matt Crawford (playeragent@metuchenbbsb.com) prior to the Showcase to notify him of the request and must have their child register and participate in two showcases - the division above in which they are requesting to play and their age or grade assigned Showcase so that managers of both divisions can weigh in on the decision. Please recognize that in addition to player performance at the showcase, a need must exist whereby the division above is looking to fill an open roster position. For this reason, even those players wishing to move up one division, who perform well in the Showcase may be required to stay in their current division if no roster spots are open in the division above. Please also note that no player can jump two league years - therefore a player baseball aged 9 may not move up from Majors to Intermediates, a softball player second grade (Minors division) may not move up to Majors division (grades 4 and 5).

Playing down - Parents/guardians with serious concerns for their child's safety at their age or grade appropriate division can request to have their child moved down one division. In order to do this, the parent/guardian must email the Player Agent, Matt Crawford (playeragent@metuchenbbsb.com) prior to the Showcase to notify him of the request and must have their child register and participate in their age or grade assigned Showcase so that managers of that division can weigh in on the decision.
