45/40 Age Bracket Starting 2017

The NJIBL will start a 45 to pitch/40 to play age bracket starting in 2017

It's inevitable, you are going to get older. Next year, we are going to provide a home for those gentlemen, myself included. The idea as of now is that players would have to be 45 or older to pitch and 40 or older to play.  The issue becomes that since our 35 teams are generally so good, the teams recruit younger players to try and keep up with the dynamic. Then older guys on teams start to get phased out and have no place to go.

So if your team is interested in this, start the discussion. If you don't have enough for a team, contact njibldirector@gmail.com and we can start planning for next year to possibly have some teams set up and ready for next year.
