Registrations for the spring season have been strong with most leagues at or very near our planned capacity. The new online site appears to be working very well and is providing a very clear picture of where league numbers stand. Therefore, the Board of Directors has approved an extension of the early registration period for Leagues 1, 2, 3, and Babe Ruth to March 6th. The early registration period for League 4 & 5 will remain open through at least mid-March.
This action waives the late fee for registration only. Once a league reaches the planned capacity, a waiting list will be started in the order of registration. We will evaluate the ability to expand the number of teams based on the availability of players, coaches and sponsors.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Based on feedback from the changes announced earlier this year, the NJB Board has approved further changes to the 2016 NJB Select Team and All-Star selection process.
The primary change is that Select Teams for the 2016 postseason will be selected in the Fall of 2015 to allow teams to form earlier in 2016 and to reduce the amount of activity in March as the league gears up for the Spring Season.
The schedule for Select Team selections is as follows:
Player Declaration Deadline
End of October
