The Union County Baseball Association invites young baseball players – boys and girls – ages 8 to 15, to register for its Summer Youth League baseball teams. This annual youth baseball program – now celebrating its 70thseason – is sponsored by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Union County Baseball Association, and the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation.

“Since 1945, Union County has offered opportunities for young ballplayers to strengthen their skills and have fun during the summer,” said Freeholder Chairman Mohamed S. Jalloh. “The Summer Youth League continues this long tradition of providing coaches, umpires, shirts and baseball caps to boys and girls who enjoy participating in baseball games at Warinanco Park.”

Register for the summer league online at www.UCBA-NJ.ORG . Participants also may sign-up at the Warinanco Park Boat House in Roselle on Saturday, June 20, from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. Each player is required to bring a $25 registration fee (check or cash) and a birth certificate to the sign-up. Saturday, June 20, will be the last day to register.

Players must be at least 8 years old by June 21 and cannot be 16 before August 1. All those who register will participate in play.

All games during the Summer Youth League are played in Warinanco Park, on the border of Elizabeth and Roselle, Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The league runs from the end of June until the first week of August.  The teams play during the day, 2 or 3 times during the week depending on the schedule. The games are coached and supervised by Union County Baseball Association staff.

The Summer Youth League is divided into three divisions: a Minor League for 8, 9 and 10-year-old players;  a Major League for 11 and 12-year-olds; and  Teen League for 13, 14 and 15-year-olds.
