Due to the community’s desire for an 8-year-old baseball program, the following age group is invited to Jericho Athletic Association (JAA) evaluations scheduled for Friday, June 8 and Tuesday, June 12.
If your child was born between May 1, 2003 through Apr. 30, 2004, he is eligible for this evaluation. Players, based upon their evaluation, may be added to the 9-year-old travel team if roster positions are available. Additionally, for those 8-year-old baseball players who are not offered positions on the 9-year-old travel team, there will be an 8-year-old developmental baseball team that will play in NJBL in the fall and spring.

For Syosset Baseball Association (SBA), the inaugural season of blast ball kicked off with 96 players and 16 teams taking the field at Syosset-Woodbury Park on Saturday, April 21 at 10 a.m. Blast ball, an introduction to the game of baseball for children ages 3 and 4, was launched this season to help teach batting and fielding skills to the youngest members of the community. Blast ball helps players build a skill set of the fundamentals of baseball and softball by the time they reach the age of 5, at which point they will be ready to play in the SBA T-ball division.
The equipment provided for blast ball consists of a foam baseball the size of a softball, a foam bat, a baseball tee and a marker for the players to stand behind for safety. There is also one base, which the players can run to after batting. This special base rewards the player for stepping on it with a noise. All players were provided with a numbered blast ball T-shirt and a baseball hat with an “S” for Syosset.
