SEVERAL REASONS TO CONSIDER NJABC BASEBALL

  1. NJABC provides continuous competition sub-teen through adult in seven divisions.
  2. Local leagues have local control of your play.  When tournaments start, all rules contained in the AABC handbook apply.
  3. League play is followed with competition at state, regional, and World Series levels.
  4. Free air travel is provided for world series play in Connie Mack (18 and under). Mickey Mantle (16 and under), Pee Wee Reese (12 and under) and Willie Mays (10 and under).  Other divisions receive liberal travel monies.  Free housing is also provided.  Meals are provided at most of the World Series.
  5. State winners in single age (Mantle 15s, Koufax 13s, Reese 11s, Mays 9s and Clemente 7's) advance directly to the World Series.  There will be no regional tournaments for these ages in 2008.
