The last few weeks the players will play real baseball games.  
 
9-16 Year Olds:  Games will be played each week.  We will keep standings, and we might play a tournament the last week.
 
Night of the week: Wednesdays.  6:00pm-8:00pm.  [If we have overflow, will consider moving an age group to Monday.]
 
2 Divisions:  This will be decided based on the number of teams and those that sign up.
 
Number of Teams in Each League:  As many as numbers allow.  10-12 players per team.
 
Eligibility: Players from Grand Forks and surrounding communities are eligible to play in the GF Youth Baseball Fall League.
 
Player Evaluation & Team Formation: No travel or pre-selected teams in the league.  All players will be placed in a pool, and teams will be selected by the coordinator for equal competition.  Player evaluations will include past experience and spring evaluations. For players not associated with GF Youth Baseball, the coordinator will work closely with the player’s association to determine that players evaluation.

8 year olds - $50
