BLBS Travel Baseball Without the Travel is the perfect fit for parents and players who want more competition than recreational ball, but don't want the expense, time commitment and fatigue of the 50 game schedules typical of travel ball teams. BLBS Summer League consists of some 70 teams in the three divisions with each team playing a 20 game schedule as one doubleheader per weekend.
The season includes a mid-season pool play format and a season ending seeded tournament in which all teams participate.
9-10 and 11-12 yr old divisions has moved up to May 1st 2020 with season to conclude the weekend of July 4th 2020). The youth divisions (9-10, 11-12 yr old) will again play their games at Ohio State's Fred Beekman Baseball Complex (rain outs and make up dates may necessitate using addition sites such as NCS) off West Lane Ave.
Our 13-14 division will start Memorial Day Weekend but we are working out details to finish by July 10th (by utilizing a mid-week tournament or playing a few mid-week games). The 13-14 and High School Divisions will play most of their games at Grandview HS, but will also play as needed at various high schools around Columbus (including Hilliard, Dublin, Westerville and Gahanna).
Our reasoning for moving the schedule up is as follows:
We hope you feel as we do that this schedule change will enhance and build on the success we have enjoyed over the past 25 years of league play.
We have kept the League fee at $495/player for a 20 game, 10 week schedule and for those Coaches/Teams registering early (before November 15) we have waived the $100 team registration fee.
League fees include:
Teams and Free Agents may register year-round
Player registration begins December 1st
Payment plan will be available with $95 down, then $100/month on the 1st of Jan, Feb, March and April. Deadline March 1st
Division is based on player's age on May 15th.
