Update: 2018 Fall Ball Registration has been extended one week. The start date for the season will also be extended to start Saturday August 18th. This will give teams more time for tryouts, team formation in order to participate in the Fall season. Reminder, we do have multiple teams that have multi sport players and will do our best to accomodate the scheduling conflicts for all teams.
Registration for the 2018 Fall Ball season at 3&2 is now open.
Register using the fall grade your player will be attending.
Individual player registration will be done through the 3&2 web site and is now open. Parents should click on the orange REGISTER NOW button on the front page of the web site and follow the prompts. Player registration and fees are due by Friday, August 3rd.
The league structure will be the same as during the summer with divisions within age levels to make sure teams are matched as evenly as possible. When managers register, please indicate the level of play your team should be in. Standings will be kept. Division winners will receive individual awards. We’ll even schedule your team for double-headers if you’d like!
Teams should wear as similar colored uniforms as possible. Mixed uniforms are acceptable as most fall ball teams will have players from more than one summer team.
Games will be played at both the East Complex (18300 W. 87th St.) and the West Complex (8000 Monticello Rd). All T-ball, coach pitch and machine pitch games will be played at the West Complex.
