GREATER RALEIGH FALL BASEBALL LEAGUE INFORMATION
TRIANGLE AREA HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS ONLY (Contact Ken Shuey 919-570-6596)
The Greater Raleigh Fall Baseball League (GRFBL) is for high school players and is separate from NWCBA in-house leagues. The GRFBL works in coordination with The Carolina Stars travel teams and FBI Baseball. Both of these groups operate travel teams in the summer and may have player needs for the fall as some players have graduated and some play scholastic sports. If a quality high school baseball player is interested in playing showcase baseball in the fall they should call Mark Law at 919-201-9198 (Stars) or Joe John at 919-606-8900 (FBI) and let them know.
Decisions about travel baseball must be made prior to GRFBL AAA tryouts. Participation on a GRFBL showcase team or a AAA team is NOT guaranteed. Any player interested in a GRFBL AAA team should call the appropriate area AAA coach to get on a list for a AAA tryout.
GRFBL AAA LEAGUE
The GRFBL AAA League is structured to provide a quality practice and playing environment for dedicated sophomores through seniors high school players. A freshman needs a coach’s recommendation to tryout. Selection of the teams for the AAA league will be accomplished by the individual AAA coaches.
If you attend school at one of the listed high schools you should call or email the listed coach to get on a tryout list which will be held later in the summer. If your high school is not listed or you are home schooled, you can call the closest area coach to get on a tryout list. After tryouts are complete and players are selected, the NWCBA.COM website will be opened for registration. Fall registration for the AAA program will be $315.
