Player registration for the 2017 Spring Season is now open. Additional info is available in the 2017 Registration Letter below. It is also viewable in the Register Online Tab on the left edge. "Early-bird" discount ends November 15, 2016.
If you are interested in helping our League re-grow/return to our "Glory Days" (1990s) (with my apologies to Bruce Springsteen), please contact Lou Lessard or Mike Barry. Our contact info is listed under League Contacts to the left. We have also just generated a Volunteer Registration form. It is the first form after the instructions text. No need to list your age...grin. Many thanks.
Registration for our 2017 Spring season is now open. Families should use their personal account information/password from the 2016 season to log in for the 2017 registration process. Please DO NOT OPEN A NEW FAMILY/PLAYER ACCOUNT if you previously set up an account with our web site. If you have questions regarding access to our web site, please contact the League Registration Officer as listed under the League Contacts Tab on the left side of our home page. Please beware of each age division’s closing date.
Please note that there needs to be at least one email address entered during registration for each player on the online forms. You may enter two at the email address line. It should be the parent's reachable email address as this it how the League and managers/coaches contact the player/parent regarding various messages. No email for the player = the inability to get messages from us. Thanks for understanding. Please feel secure that there is no spam from our League or from our web host.
The Pioneer League is requiring payment (credit card or e-Check) in full before your child's Spring 2017 registration will be complete. Only those children registered and fully paid on or before November 15, 2016 are guaranteed a spot on a Spring 2017 team - other than the Rookie/Tee Ball division where the registration payment deadline is Feb 1, 2017. Please note that we are introducing and adding an "Early Bird" discount of $25 off the regular/basic registration fee if the fee is paid on or before November 15, 2016 for divisions other than the Rookie / Tee Ball Division. The Rookie / Tee Ball "Early Bird" discount will extend to December 31, 2015.
Regular/basic 2017 registration fees - if registering after the end of the “Early Bird” discount time period:
A & B Baseball...$220.
Super C Baseball.....$200.
C-Ball (Baseball) and Rookie (Tee Ball)...$150.
Registrations for divisions other than Rookie Ball that are not paid on or before December 5, 2016, will result in your child's registration being suspended, and your child will be "wait-listed.” Wait-listed players are not guaranteed a position on a team this coming Spring. A wait-listed player’s status is prioritized by the date and time of the web site registration.
Should room become available on a team and/or if a team is added to a division after December 5, 2016, priority will then be given to those who registered earlier, and you will be contacted by the league to make payment and complete your registration. A parent will then have 48 hours after notification of an opening to make the fee payment or the spot will be offered to the next player on the waiting list.
Please also note that there are no refunds for player registrations.
The League will be monitoring the quantity of registrations for the various age divisions and may have to set maximum division limits as to players in order to fulfill rosters to fair and equal player numbers. Thus, it is to your advantage to register as soon as practical for your particular family situation because a division may fill before registrations are due to be closed for that particular division.
Skills Evaluation Sessions: For those players who are moving up to an older age division (A and B Baseball) for 2017, please be aware that there will be skills evaluation sessions before applicable player drafts. The exact time, dates, and location for them will be communicated some time after registration ends. Players registering for Super C, C-Ball, and Rookie (Tee Ball) will not be participating in skills evaluation sessions.
In addition to the registration fee, players for the Super C, A and B Baseball divisions will be required to purchase a jersey that is theirs to keep, as well as supplying their own pants, glove, and athletic shoes/cleats. Players returning to the same team may use the previously purchased jersey - assuming the size is sufficient. The league provides each player with a hat and socks. C-Ball and Rookie ball players are provided a jersey and hat. Detailed uniform information will be sent in early December.
We look forward to a fun and competitive Spring 2017 season, and thank you and your child or children for participating in our league.

The Diamond Dreams Project continues as the Pioneer League continues planning additional phases to complete major renovations at your park.
At this time, we have renovated all three fields, including building new dugouts and installing electronic scoreboards. Now, we are focusing on putting the finishing touches on all three fields, improving drainage and reviewing plans for Phase IV of the project which will focus on creating a safer parking area.
The next phases of the project are very capital intensive and will require close coordination with the City of Newburyport. To be able to begin these next phases, we desperately need your help and financial support to fund these projects.
Funds for Diamond Dreams to renovate the park do not come from registration fees and team sponsorships, but from dedicated contributions to the Diamond Dreams project. As we have raised funds, we have worked on different park renovations that we can afford. With your help, we can complete our dream and completely renovate the Park!
