U17 Commissioner

The commissioner for the 2021 season is Eric Hyde.  His direct email is jslu16s@jrsaltdogs.com.


2021 Season Update:  

For 2021, we have extended the maximum age from 16 yrs to 17 yrs (as of 4.30.21) for our high school division.  Because our 2020 season was cancelled due to Covid, this age extension will give one more year of eligibility to play in our U17 high school division.


Advantages of playing high school baseball with the Junior Saltdogs:

  • Everyone plays. Everyone hits. Everyone plays multiple positions.
  • No pressure. Just enjoy the game of baseball and have fun competing.
  • Junior Saltdogs is affordable and a good value.
  • Play on good fields with an end-of-season tournament
  • Play on a team with your friends. No tryouts.


How to Register for Jr Saltdogs:

We will have two registration periods for our U17 division.

The first will be from January 11 – February 20, 2021.  See the home page for the online registration link.

The second registration (just for U17) will be from mid-April through late May (check back here for the final registration deadline and the link).  If you are thinking about trying out for a legion team, please wait until their tryouts are final before registering for Jr Saltdogs.

If you have any questions, please contact Deb at jslregistrations@jrsaltdogs.com.


Rules – 2020

2020 rules are posted for information only.  2021 rules will be posted when they are final.


Game Schedule

The game schedule link for U17 will be posted here in late May. Possible game days for U17 games are 6pm and 8pm Monday-Friday and Sunday afternoons/evenings (Saturday afternoons are also a possibility).  Teams play about 2 games a week and game nights will vary from week to week.  The U17 season typically starts in mid-June .


Team Standings / Rankings

Team standings/rankings will be posted for all divisions throughout the season as coaches report in to their commissioners with their win-loss records.


Tournament Schedule

JSL will host a tournament for U17 after regular season games are finished.   Tournament dates are affected by regular season rain makeups that are needed; therefore, the tournament dates won’t be known and finalized until July – it will be posted here when it is finalized.  For a general estimate, once the regular season schedule is posted above, find the last game for any team in your division, reserve a few days after that for any potential late rain makeup games, and the tournament will follow after that.  All regular season and tournament games will be completed no later than July 31.

Prior to the tournament, ties in team rankings will be broken by head-to-head play or coin flip.  Medals will be awarded to the top team based on final tournament results.
