Welcome to New England Elite Baseball League, comprised of the most talented teams in New England. Our mission is to maintain a competitive league with a strong focus on structure and organization within the league. Programs that are part of the EBL will have a team page on our site to promote their program, post team rosters and update game scores and stats. By being part of the EBL League, you will better your program for your players, as it will eliminate constant changes, cancelations and the hassle of finding games last minute.
In 2017 the New England Elite Baseball League will be entering it's 6th season. When the EBL started in 2012 there were 250 teams during it's inaugural season now there is close to 500 teams in the league for the upcoming 2017 season. "We have some great people and very strong programs in our league year in and year out. These programs value organization, structure and accountability. When you add people who care about the league with a great concept then you have a solid product." says Mike Costantino. The New England Elite Baseball League is in a class all by itself when it comes to the travel baseball circuit in New England and we look forward to improving each year. We want to thank all of the coaches and program directors on making the EBL the best travel baseball league possible and we appreciate all of the hard work.
We have been very picky with what programs we let into the EBL over the past 4 years. We will not add any single teams into the league and we avoid any programs that have bad reputations. Accountability is very important in the EBL, there are no cancellations allowed and if a team does cancel then they will be up for discussion for permanent removal from the league immediately. Once the schedules come out we want all the teams in the league to know that all games on the schedule need to be played. Some of the other leagues do not hold teams accountable for canceling games so as a league we take great pride in our no cancellation policy.
All of the original programs that helped start the league from day one are still going strong and are very helpful with the playoffs, all-star and championship games each year. The original programs that had a big help in starting the EBL in 2012, are Nokona, Noreasters, Mizuno USA, Legends, Jr. Spinners, Team Boston, Concord Cannons, Maine Lightning, Hurricanes and Stampede. All of those programs are still very successful and were a big part of year #1 by attending monthly meetings and coming up with their own creative ideas that have been implemented in the league structure.
The EBL staff is very excited about the upcoming 2017 season and we look forward to some very competitive games. The playoffs and all-star dates have been announced and the regular season schedule will be released during the first week of March. With all of the programs coming back from the 2016 season and the addition of some new programs to the league it looks like 2017 season will be as good as advertised!
