Playing up - if you would like your child to play up above their designated division, please contact your division director. 

Colt/Palomino - The schedule for the Colt/Palomino league begins after the conclusion of the high school season and before college students head to campus. The league will begin the first week of June with playoffs ending the last week of July. Our goal is to have up to 16 regular-season games plus a double elimination playoff. The ages will be 15U–18U, based on a May 1st cutoff date. 18U players can participate but are not eligible to pitch. There will not be games scheduled over the Memorial Day or the 4th of July weekends.
