Welcome to SFBL SPRING 2021 SEASON
Thank you for your interest in the South Florida Baseball League. We begin a new season with many upgrades designed to enhance your baseball experience.
Specifically, we are introducing a number of new initiatives, including
- A Rolling 2 Week Schedule, where, with team compliance, we can provide all league participants enhanced forward planning capability. Team managers MUST disclose in advance all of their forward calendar conflicts so we can incorporate those conflicts into the scheduling process. Once the schedule is posted, teams MUST play or forfeit and be suspended. A forfeit fee of $200 MUST BE PAID PRIOR TO REINSTATEMENT.
- Live streaming – GAME OF THE WEEK on the SFBL website and through your phone via Facebook
- Automatic Roster Rollover, where only new players need to register. Once your players are rostered, we will be able to advise you promptly which of your players are not registered. Unregistered players are prohibited from playing in the league.
- Team Waiver Form – download off the SFBL website and obtain the signatures of all rostered players. This protects the team managers and fellow players, the field operators and owners as well as the league from lawsuits. Please understand the importance of this requirement. Understand that if we do not have a player’s signature, he can’t play. PERIOD.
- New Rules have been adopted. Please take the time to re-read the rule book. Some of the new rules are of special interest, including the Playoff Tie Breaker Rule, which starts the 10th inning with based loaded and one out.
- We are resuming Player of the Week and the Baseball Beast Award – for the most studly performance of the season as voted by your peers. Please submit nominations with photo.
- Playoff Qualifications: OPEN DIV – top four in each bracket / SENIOR DIV top four / MASTERS DIV top three.
- Cash Prize and championship awards remain the same – Team Championship Trophy, MVP Trophy, Championship T-Shirts, authentic SFBL logo caps and a $1000 Cash Prize for Open and Senior Divisions and $500 Cash Prize for Masters Division.
