All-Star and Travel Tryouts
For the 8U, 9U, and 10U age groups who will field teams in both Summer All Star tournaments and the Fall Travel season, we will hold one evaluation session and post rosters for both seasons at the same time.  Players will have the option to declare whether they plan to participate in both the All Star and Fall seasons or just one of them during the online registration process.  One tryout; two rosters.
 
For the 7U division, we will select players for only the 2018 All Star season only because that age group will not begin Travel play until the Spring of 2019.  Selections for the Fall team will occur in late September or early October.
 
REGISTRATION SITE (All players must pre-register online by June 8th):
 
 
SCHEDULES:
- Our All Star teams typically play in 3-4 local area tournaments starting in late June through late July.  Our own Halfmoon Melee will be held July 19-22.  Players are required to participate in >90% of team activities, so if other sports or vacations prevent one from meeting that obligation, please refrain from taking a roster spot for that season.
 
- The Fall Travel season runs from Labor Day to late October and games are typically played on weekends with one or two practices per week.  
 
COSTS:
- New players to the 8U, 9U, or 10U teams will be required to purchase the Halfmoon uniform kit at a cost of $160.  The league covers all other team costs for the All Star season.  The Travel Program cost for the Fall season will be approximately $75 - $100 and will be assessed prior to the season start.  
 
- Players chosen for the 7U All Star team will be required to purchase a jersey and hat through the league at a cost of approximately $60.  The league covers all other team costs for the All Star season.
 
Further details about the All Star/Travel program and an outline of the selection process can be accessed in the Documents section on the league website through the following links:

2018 New Bat Rules For Travel Players
On January 1, 2018, USA Baseball will implement a rule change to the bats allowed in many youth baseball leagues.  The new USABat standard will create wood-like performance in youth bats while allowing players to use light-weight bats that could not be achieved with traditional wood bats.  
 
 
 
The bats will be stamped as seen below:

Halfmoon Baseball is an independent entity, not falling under the auspices of well known organizations requiring these new bats (Little League, Cal Ripken, etc).  However, Halfmoon Travel Baseball fields teams in two separate leagues that require the new USABat stamped bats.  
 
*Travel players will have to use new bats for the upcoming Spring season.*
 
As far as Rec Baseball is concerned, the Board voted to leave bat rules unchanged for the upcoming season.  It is no mystery that bats are very expensive, and at this time, we are not compelled to pass this cost along to parents.  However, parents who would like to purchase a new bat are encouraged to buy a USABat stamped bat.  You may have no choice, as retailers will most likely stock only these new bats.  "Old" bats with the BPF stamp (see logo below) will be allowed throughout the 2018 Recreation league season.

This issue will be revisited following the 2018 season and any changes in bat rules will be communicated to parents as soon as possible.
