Travel Baseball Tryouts

Does your child want to take their baseball skills to the next level? They should consider trying out for one of the Niskayuna Baseball League travel teams. For those who love baseball, this is an opportunity for greater access to coaching and to play more games.

Niskayuna Baseball League will be hosting open tryouts for the following age groups 8u, 9u, 10u, 11u, 12u and over 13-16. The player's division is based on their age before May 1, 2025. The tryout schedule is below, however please continue to monitor our website and socials for updates.

11U Red Team Places Second at Rumble at the Rock Tournament

4/22/24 The Niskayuna 11U Red team placed second this weekend at Rumble at the Rock Tournament in Chester, NY.  The Warriors lost their first game Saturday to Grit Silver, but  followed up with a win over Wappinger's Falls. In a close semi-final game against Lewisboro, Nisky was victorious behind a complete game effort on the mound from Chase Hansen and multiple stolen bases by Nando Martinez and Johnny Powers. Nisky came up short in the rematch against Grit Silver in the championship game Sunday afternoon. Niskayuna was strong defensively all weekend, recording several double plays, and was led offensively by two solo home runs from Gavin Farrow.

Niskayuna Travel Baseball

Niskayuna Youth Baseball is excited to join Capital District ELITE Sports for the 2024 Season!

All-Star Baseball This level attempts to move through the levels of tournament play offered by Cal Ripken The District 1 Tournament, the ENY State Tournament, and the Middle-Atlantic Tournament followed by the World Series at ages 10, 12, and Babe Ruth. Playing time is not guaranteed nor might it be divided equally. Selection to the all-stars may naturally include many travel players, but additions from strong rec performance and new players to the area could change the rosters from travel to All-Star. All-Star teams can not bat more than 9 or 10 players and do not have free substitution, so rosters may be smaller. Rec coaches, and the Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth Committees will discuss and select All-Star rosters in June. This level will require the possibility of regional travel and hotel costs. 

Babe Ruth Travel Program

The Babe Ruth travel program is structured a little differently than the Cal Ripken. The travel teams at the Babe Ruth division start in late May or early June, following the local scholastic seasons. 

13U-15U Travel/All Stars – This team may participate in the 13U Babe Ruth All-Star Tournaments, along with games in the ENTYB and/or ESBL travel leagues, as well as particular weekend tournaments, all of which might include regional travel and additional hotel costs. During the course of the travel schedule, managers are encouraged to use games as ways to develop players at various positions and strive for appropriate playing time, realizing that at this level some kids are going to play more than others. The league has adopted a 30% minimum playing time rule at the 13-15U level. Expectations and roles of players will be discussed with kids throughout the season. Once the team enters any Babe Ruth, “tournament trail” All-Star play, playing time will not be guaranteed. At this time, players will be put in positions by the manager that gives the team the best chance to advance. There is an expectation of a large investment in time for practice and games. Schedules will be communicated prior to the start of travel play.
