These sessions will be in place of the ULMK Clinic held in the past for recreational team selection, and will allow for the appropriate placement of all players participating in the PYL League (SPYA is now participating in the PYL league, rather than ULMK).

LVL vs PYL Baseball

LVL vs PYL Baseball

 

Due to the continually growing number of South Parkland youth who register to play baseball in both the spring and the fall, and who are looking for both developmental and competitive baseball, SPYA Baseball has expanded the opportunities for the youth of the association across all levels.

In addition to the In-House programs for players age 4 through 8, and the highly competitive Lehigh Valley League (LVL) baseball for players age 9 through 18, as a result of the continuing interests and requests of SPYA families, and through collaboration with other youth associations, SPYA has assisted in the formation of a recreational league that not only continues to develop baseball skills, but that also offers differing levels of competition within the league.

In the newly structured Parkland Youth League (PYL), players will continue to have the opportunity to play at the same competitive levels that they have enjoyed in the past, where teams are formed through a draft selection process (not through a tryout process), and where anyone wishing to play at that level will be placed on teams. These teams will play in the National League divisions, where baseball rules are introduced more incrementally as the players get older (as they had been in the past).

However, players wishing to experience even more competitive baseball may now tryout for teams that will be playing in the American League divisions of the PYL. Games played in the American League will follow very closely to high school baseball rules, with of course some exceptions for player safety that will be posted in the bylaws.

While teams playing in the American League divisions of the PYL will not be playing at quite the same level as the LVL teams, nor will they play as many games as are played in the LVL, this added level of play may be ideal for those players wishing to pursue more competitive play, but who are still not quite ready for LVL play.

Players who tryout for the American League division, but who are not selected, will be placed on a PYL National League teams. Please remember that even at the National League level, these games are competitive, they are officiated by umpires, the players will learn baseball and develop their skills, and the regular season is followed by post-season playoffs.

Please watch for additional information as we approach the spring season. Should you have any questions, please fo not hesitate to contact us. All contact information can be found on our Program Information page.

 

Thank you!
