Fall Baseball FAQ

 

Due to increased demand for kids wanting to play baseball following the spring In-House season, WBYB started a fall baseball offering in 2014 and it has grown steadily each year.

Teams

  • Players register for the age they will be as of April 31. The number of teams will be determined by the number of registrants. An example: if you are age 11 as of 4/30, you sign up for 11U. See below for age level (with number of teams from last year in parenthesis).

 

  1. 7U: 4 teams
  2.  9U: 6 teams
  3. 11U: 4 teams
  4. 13U: 4 teams

 

Length of Season

  • Fall Ball season runs mid- to late-August thru 2nd week of October (weather permitting).

 

Cost

  • $125 per player (9U/11U/13U); $75 per player (7U).  All pricing subject to change.
  • Registration typically opens in the month of June.

 

General Details

  • WBYB Fall League teams participate in a local area multi-town league, playing not only against each other, but also against teams from Lombard and Glen Ellyn.
  • Four divisions are offered – 7U (instructional with part kid/part-machine pitch innings), 9U, 11U, and 13U
  • Rules of play are determined in collaboration with Wheaton Briarcliffe, Lombard Baseball, and Glen Ellyn Youth Baseball
  • Team’s play approximately10 regular season games (weekends, Fri-Sun), with a single elimination post-season tournament (excluding 7U) in early October. Typically, no games are scheduled during Labor Day weekend and teams typically practice 1-2 times per week.
  • All games will be played in Glen Ellyn, Lombard, and Wheaton.

 

Tryout Process

  • In past years, teams were created based off of best attempts by Briarcliffe Fall Ball Commissioners/Board Members to balance the teams skills-wise, while trying to also honor friend requests where we can.
  • Given how Briarcliffe Fall Baseball has grown in size, it is more than likely that we will be moving to a full draft to set the teams, especially in the 9U-13U levels.
