3. Can I request my child to be on a team with their friends?

Answer:  To be honest we do our best here as we know part of the fun is to have all players play on the same teams with their friends!  Part of the goal of the league is to blend teams based on skill, age and grade so this may not always be possible.  We ask that you please understand this part of the registration and team selection period and its difficulty and please be flexible.  If there are extenuating circumstances please contacts us at eastrockawaybaseball@gmail.com as needed.
