2023 SPRING REC SEASON REGISTRATION IS OPEN
The Spring 2023 Twinsburg recreational baseball registration opened December 9, 2022 and runs through February 28th. Information about each age division is below. Please click on the link for the division of your child to register.
* Registration for the Majors and Seniors divisions will be open longer (until April 20th)
Important Note: Parents, if you feel your child should be considered for the next age division, please email us with the subject "2023 Age Division Request". The request to have your player “play up” will be determined by TBL's team formation committee and based on a number of factors including previous ratings, input from past coach(es), registration numbers, etc. Once the decision to have a player "play up" is made by TBL and the family, the decision is considered final.

BECOME A TBL VOLUNTEER
It takes a lot of people to put together successfull spring and fall seasons -- preparing fields, running concessions, and hosting special events, clinics and tryouts! Consider registering to serve as a TBL Volunteer!
What this means is that you will receive notice of events or efforts that require additional hands - we recognize that some activities may not be of interest to you or work with your schedule, and that's ok! There is no commitment, but we will always ask!
TBL 2023 FIELD SCHEDULE
Below is the link to the real time updated TBL master field schedule. Coaches, please schedule practices and rained out game makeups through your league commissioner.
THANK YOU TO OUR TBL SPONSORS!
A reminder to all of our coaches, players and parents ...
1. These are kids
2. This is a game
3. Our coaches volunteer
4. The umpires are human
5. This is not professional baseball
TBL mandates that our volunteer head coaches take an online training course to become registered members of the National Youth Sports Coaching Association and also that they take an online concussion awareness training course. Both courses are also highly recommended for our assistant coaches and any other parents that help out with their children's teams.
