For Those Who Love To Play
2013 Registration Form
Grand Slam USA is organizing its 16th annual Fall Baseball League along with our high school fall skills clinics. The league is for 9th through 12th graders who have a sincere desire to improve their baseball skills. It will start August 18th, 2013. We will be playing one nine-inning game for eight consecutive Sundays. The eighth week of league play will be the first round of the tournament. Four teams will advance to play on October 13th. The cost to each player is $250.00. We will try to make up all rain outs.
We are hoping for around 120-182 players, which would be divided into ten to fourteen teams with thirteen players on a team. All games will be played in the Des Moines area so travel will be held to a minimum.
Grand Slam USA is also offering high school skills clinics. These clinics will consist of infield play, outfield play, and hitting. These clinics are for serious players who are interested in improving and developing their skills. Each clinic is limited to 12 players.
We are looking for players who are serious about improving their game and willing to take instruction. On that note, we must mention that the only real drawback in last year’s fall was the sporadic attendance of some players. This caused us to shorten the length of some games and was truly not fair to the kids that were always there. This fall, attendance will be monitored closely. If a player has chosen to come to games only when he feels like playing, that individual could be asked to hand in his uniform, no refund!
So, we can have a good idea of the number of players that will be participating, we need your registration form and $250.00 back by July 1, 2013. We will be contacting you by August 1st in regards to when and where we will be holding our league meeting. At this meeting we will distribute rosters, schedules and rules.
We will quickly recap what the Grand Slam Fall League will provide:
• 8 to 10 games (we will try to make up all rain outs)
• 2 certified umpires per game
• 1 qualified coach per team
• All games played in the Des Moines area on high school fields
• Pitch counts kept at every game
