Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can I play both Social and Winter league?
A: Certainly! If you are a returning UMBC member we may also waive the cost of your social league fee if you are willing to be a team leader!
Q: Do I have to be available each weekend?
A: Although it would be great if you could commit to the full season, we understand that sometimes other things are more important.
Q: Will I be able to move to Winter League after trying my hand at Social League?
A: Thats the plan! If you’ve having fun playing in the social league and want more (especially after it finishes) then there will still be plenty of winter league left.
Q: Will it take as long as a normal baseball game? Will I get to try out different positions? I don’t know if I’m ready yet?
A: Thats why its a social league! Alternative rules will apply to speed things up and keep things interesting.
