2020 Borough Cup Registration

02/19/2020 3:59 PM -
To Our NYC Baseball Family,
 
Oh, how we've missed you! It feels like just yesterday that we were standing on the field at Yankee Stadium crowning Borough Cup Champions. Instead, we are in February staring down another amazing season of Youth Baseball in the Five Boroughs.  Big Apple Power Rankings will be released soon, and we'll be bringing back Metro Stars Of The Week and the Gotham Sandlot Round Up to give your kids the most complete coverage around!
 
After a record 2019 which saw an amazing 115 Participating Teams, we will offer the same divisions this year (Listed Below). Similarly, the updated Bat Rules will stay in effect, with U8-U10 adhering to the USA BATS Guidelines, while U11-U15/16 remains Wood Bat only.

In terms of scheduling, we have a slight change in format to announce that we feel will be advantageous to everyone involved. Teams will still be guaranteed at least 3 games (Possibly 4 Depending On Pool Size). However, instead of only a percentage of the teams advancing to the City Playoffs, we have decided to give every team an automatic bid moving forward. 
 
We believe this move will be beneficial for three reasons. First,  with most teams only playing 2 pool play games, we will be able to reduce potential conflicts with commitments and have less games to make-up when we encounter weather. Second, with less games being played on a nightly basis, the likelihood of a Borough Cup Staff Member overseeing your game will increase dramatically. Finally, with all teams advancing, we feel we will be able create more competitive match-ups, in turn improving each Squad's Borough Cup Experience. 
 
With that in mind, we present this year's Tournament Timeline:
  • Registration Deadline: July 1st
  • Pool Play: July 11th through August 5th (2-3 Games Depending On Pool)
  • City Playoffs: August 7th, August 8th, and August 9th (ALL TEAMS)
  • U8-U12 Championships: August 18th @ MCU Park (Make Up- 8/19)
  • U13/14 & U15/16 Championships: Announcement Coming Soon!!!!
