FIVE NEW PLAYERS, TWO NEW TEAMS ADDED FOR FALL 2016 SEASON

FIVE PLAYERS ADDED THROUGH DRAFT

Five players were added to Palm Beach League rosters at tryouts Sunday, September 18 at Santaluces.  The Braves, who hope to improve from their last place finish under Mike Bernier, who takes over as manager, drafted three players, while the soon to be renamed Islanders and Mets added one each.  

Also, the league announced that two new teams were entering the Fall League, which begins on October 9 and will run through February 2017.  The Hurricanes, managed by former Diamondback player Reymar Cabrera, and the Palm Beach Rays, with former Islanders Joe Mazzeo and Eddie Vazquez, will enter the new season   The addition of the two new teams would bring the league's Fall roster to fourteen teams.    

The Braves, who need pitching, drafted two of them, including 18-year old Nicholas Robinson of Boynton Beach.  Robinson, who played three years at Atlantic Community HS, showed lots of versatility.  In addition to pitching, he can play three infield positions and the outfield.  Robinson is an Atlanta Braves fan, so he should feel right at home in a Palm Beach Braves uniform.  

Veteran Lee Doloff, who has played with several Palm Beach teams in the past, should provide the Braves with some quality innings as a starter or reliever, can also play third base and second base, and adds a productive bat.  Doloff played college baseball at the University of Tampa, and has played with Glory Days in the Roy Hobbs tournament in Fort Myers, Florida for several seasons.  

Another veteran, Lou DeLuca, a transplanted New Yorker who now lives in Boynton Beach,  has lots of experience as a player and team manager in Adult Leagues in the North.  He played college ball at Queens College, New York, and should add an experienced presence to the young Braves' roster as an infielder.    

The Islanders, under new skipper Jessie McGregor, picked a versatile Northerner who moved from Massachusetts to South Florida just last month.  Colin Campbell not only played high school ball, but played in fcur Adult Leagues in the Bay State, including the famous Yawkey League in his native Boston.  He plays middle infield and outfield positions, and showed some pitching ability.  He feels he can work short stints on the mound, mostly likely in relief.  His fast ball was lively and he threw some sharp breaking sliders and curve balls.  McGregor and several former Islanders' players are banding together to form a new team, which will be renamed in the very near future.

To learn more about the NABA Palm Beach League, click on any of the many links below. There are many features and lots of information about the league and the greatest game in the world----Baseball!!!!!!!  

If you'd like to join a team in our league, just click on JOIN A TEAM on the left hand side of this home page.  Complete the form and send it to League President Lou Palmer at flanaba@aol.com.   We will do our best to get you on a team.  In filling out the form, please be specific about where and when you've played before.  Teams are always looking to add good players, and there's still a lot of season left.  Good luck, and hope to hear from you this week.   

OVER 40 DIVISION-The league is exploring the possibility of introducing an Over 40 division, most likely in the Fall, if there is sufficient interest.  We have heard from one complete team and some individuals.  If there any entire teams who wish to play, the league invites them to contact us.  Please click on the ENTER A TEAM link on this page.  We are also interested in hearing from individual players who are interested, and will build a database of players with the idea of constructing complete Over 40 teams.  

Players who want to play in an Over 40 division are invited to click on the JOIN A TEAM link on this home page.  We need to have at least four teams to develop an Over 40 division, and games will be limited to seven innings and two and a half hour time limits.     

BEACH BUMS, METS WIN FALL 2015-16 TITLES

Congratulations to the South Florida Beach Bums, who defeated the Manatees 6-2 to win the AAA division championship, and to the Palm Beach Mets, who defeated the Sugar Kings 8-2 to win the AA division title.  Both games were played on February 28, 2016 at Seminole Palms Park in Royal Palm Beach.   

CHECK OUT NEWSLETTERS, SKED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THIS HOME PAGE TO VIEW ALL WEEKLY NEWSLETTERS.  WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING A FULL SCHEDULE FOR THE CURRENT SEASON.   CLICK ON WEEKLY GAMES/RESULTS FOR SCORES.   

Another way to join the league is by volunteering to become a MANAGER.   If you feel that Father Time is catching up with you and you're not ready for a full time position as a player, why not consider putting a team of your own together and becoming a MANAGER?  Not too many businesses allow you to be the boss, UNLESS you own the business.  By being a MANAGER, you don't have to buy the business, just organize it and run it the way YOU SEE FIT.  That allows you to play whenever you feel you want to. Our Fall 2016 season will begin in early or mid October.      

  
IF YOU WANT TO MANAGE AND ASSEMBLE YOUR OWN TEAM, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.  I CAN DIRECT EXERIENCED PLAYERS TO YOU, AND WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH ALL OF THE DETAILS, SO YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN TEAM IN THE FALL OF 2016.    
 
WE'RE ALL ABOUT FAMILY, FRIENDS AND FUN

The public is welcome at all NABA Palm Beach League games, and there is no admission charge at any of the games.
