U17 Commissioners

The U17 commissioners for 2023 are Bob & Tracy Hanzlicek.  Their direct email is jslu17s@jrsaltdogs.com.


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


2023 Registration

For 2023, two separate registration periods will be held for our U17 division.  The first will be with our U6-U14 division registration from January 9 through March 4.

The second registration is for U17 only and will be from late April until late May.  Check back for more details (and the final registration deadline) – they will be added here as they are finalized.  Typically we hold our registration open several days after the final NSAA high school baseball tournament game ends.

There are NO REFUNDS so if you plan to try out for a legion team, please wait until after their rosters are finalized before registering for the Junior Saltdogs League.

If you have any questions, please contact Deb at jslregistrations@jrsaltdogs.com or at 402/430-0390.


Game Schedule – 2023

The 2023 game schedule will be posted here in early June.  U17 games will be 1 hour and 50 minutes in length, and games will begin about the 2nd week of June.  Games nights are unknown at this time but could be played any week night at 6pm or 8pm and on Saturday/Sunday afternoons or evenings.  Teams typically play 2 or 3 games a week.


Team Standings / Rankings

For the 2023 season, 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 – 2023

JSL will host a 2-game end-of-season tournament.   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 2 teams based on final tournament results.
