Other Ball

We hope to hold our All Star games again this summer at the AA Frisco Roughriders home at Dr Pepper Ballpark in August with a game for each division.  As of this writing, our date is not confirmed.


Rookie League starts on the Saturday one week BEFORE Memorial Weekend and is a 10 game, $165 per player developmental and player pool league that plays doubleheaders over 6 Saturdays. This program filled UP last year, so sign up soon if you want to play. Players on rosters from any other NTABL division can play in the Rookie League for half price ($82.50).


Fall League starts around Labor Day and is a 10-game season plus single-elimination playoffs. The league is considered an open league (18+ age bracket) that plays 7-inning, 2-hour time limit games twice per week, with one game played during a weekday and the other on Sunday. Team fees and deposit date TBD. We typically have two divisions - Competitive and Recreational.


What do you need to do?

If you are a manager, contact your players and get started collecting fees. If you are a player, contact your manager from last season or sign up for the free agent list in the division you want to play. The registration system will be open January 14 so managers can begin setting their teams up and gathering fees. Returning teams contact your VP if you want last year's team copied over (we cannot give out info for players not on your past roster).


Thank You for choosing the NTABL.
