ETS Sports is excited to announce a new league for Northwest Indiana teams. It should provide teams a great opportunity to get scheduled games against quality opponents.
Who? Open to any 9U-14U baseball team of any level (BPA Bronze, Silver, Gold)
What? This unique league allows teams to get league games in 3 different ways:
1) Schedule their own games against their own league opponents at a field they have secured to count towards league point/standings.
2) Team secured field & date and league will attempt to match your team with an opponent.
3) Play games at league secured facilities and dates and be matched up with an opponent by league schedulers.
*League will secure umpires at league-facilities and can assist in the scheduling of umpires for other team secured locations (no guarantee on scheduling based on games location)
Where? Your teams facility/field, Newton Park, Patriot Park, other locations TBD
When? April 22-July 1, 2019

Patriot Park is available every Wednesday (former travel league night). Available days/nights are continuing to be established, but teams can submit their availability and we can work to find a field available at our facilities.
