2014 Travel Fall Ball


Fall Baseball is a travel baseball league (similar to Spring Travel) played at a slightly higher competition level than our normal recreational baseball. Though we would like all interested players to have the opportunity to play, we may be forced to hold tryouts if a large number of players register at any one age group.

Games will be played on Sunday’s beginning September 7, running about eight weekends, and concluding in late October.

Travel is all around the Capital Region.

For Fall Ball registration, the player's 2015 baseball age is used to determine their team. For example, if your son or daughter played on the 9 year old Spring Travel and/or All-Star team, they would now be playing on the 10 year old Fall Ball team. Your child's baseball age is determined by taking the age they were on April 30 of the baseball season.

We will try to field as many teams as we can. If your player can't be accommodated on a team we will 100% refund the fee.

Registration closes August 29, 2014.

Summer All-Stars, FAQs

1. What is it?

Summer all-stars is additional baseball played at a more competitive level
than our recreational league. Similar to spring and fall travel, teams from
Niskayuna play against other districts in our area such as Wilton, Clifton
Park and North Colonie. Instead of playing weekly games like travel,
all-stars takes on more of a tournament format. There are various levels of
tournament play. Starting with district tournaments first, then New York
state tournaments, followed by the mid-Atlantic regional tournament and, for
some age groups, a World Series.

2. Do we play all of those tournaments or just some?

All teams will at least play in the district tournament. Our district (the
"central") typically consists of North Colonie, South Colonie, Westland
Hills, Spring, Nassau and us, of course. Not all teams play every year. The
winners (or sometimes top 2) of the district tournaments move onto the state
tournament which includes teams from the "north" district, "south" district
and Rome. The winner of the state tournament moves onto the Mid-Atlantic,
and so on. Basically, the more you win, the more you play :)

3. When and where are all of these tournaments?

The "Cal Ripken Travel/All-Stars" link off our Niskayuna Baseball home page
has all the information about the tournaments and is listed above. Note that we are hosting the
state tournament this year for the 9u division! This means we automatically
qualify for the state tournament and get to play on our own fields! This
also comes with a great deal of work to prepare the fields and staff
concession stands for all of the tournament games. So be ready to help
should your son or daughter make the 9u team!

4. How much does it cost?

We'll have detailed cost numbers soon, but typically all-stars is around
$100. We are re-using our new travel jerseys from this year, so we should be
able to save some money there.  Any player that wasn't on travel, we will provide a jersey at cost.

5. How is playing time distributed?

It is up to the Manager, but be aware that unlike recreational league,
there are no rules regarding minimum playing time.

6. How are the teams selected?

Each age group has a tryout that is observed by at least two individuals
outside of the team's manager and typically include at least one Board
member. Final roster selections are subject to the approval of our league's
president. Players are evaluated on a typical range of baseball skills
(hitting, fielding, throwing, speed, etc.)

7. Can my player tryout for a team that is above his age group?

No. Other than a 7 year old trying out for the 8u team (because there is no 7u
team), we do not allow any player to play above his age group at the Cal
Ripken all-star level. No exceptions.


Thank you,
Brud Cutting
GM Niskayuna Cal Ripken Travel/All-Stars

Many thanks to all who have help opening the concession stand and thank you for working your shifts.  I look forward to a successful and profitable season!
