Mount Pearl Minor Baseball/Baseball NL Provincial Tournament Player Eligibility:
Players must be of the proper age for their division. A player can be younger for the division but not older.
Players must also be a resident of either, Mount Pearl, Southlands or Brookfield Plains to qualify. Players from other associations may be considered if that association is not entering any team in the same division in a provincial tournament and if Baseball NL determines that it is the next closest association. . (i.e. A Peewee player from Paradise is eligible when Paradise does not have a Peewee AAA, AA or A team).
A player from any division may also play more than one provincial tournament provided they do not conflict on the same weekend and provided they are eligible under the above guidelines, however, from a Mount Pearl Minor Baseball standpoint, this will be discouraged as we try to have participation from as many kids as we can. If a coach is requesting a player to play on a second Provincial Team, this must be brought to the executive and we will make decisions on a case by case basis.
If we do not follow the above guidelines, we risk embarrassment at Provincial Tournaments as an association, team and the individual player.
All Star Guidelines:
AAA and AA teams will play in the Metro League. A teams will play in our house league but not as a team. All teams are welcome to play invitational and provincial tournaments.
Baseball NFLD has designated Mount Pearl as a major baseball centre and the first team to apply for a Baseball NL Provincial tournament in any division must be AAA
A minimum of 11 players must be selected to any team. Mosquito AAA teams must have 12.
Only players that have participated in the initial try-outs for All - Star teams will be selected with the following exceptions:
1.Injuries or other Medical reasons why a player cannot attend try outs
We encourage players to commit to all practices and games. Players must attend at the least 50% of practices and 50% of games to be eligible for the Provincial tournament.
Players must wear white pants. Team hats and jerseys are supplied by the association.
Player's must commit to attending the Provincial Tournament and the Atlantics if they qualify. Failure to commit other than medical/injury reasons, the player will not be allowed to play all-star the following year.
If a player backs out of an All-Star team without good reason (i.e. injury or family issues) then that player will go back to house league and will not be eligible to play a provincial tournament with another team. Player will not be allowed to play all-star the following season.
Any addition to a roster because another player is taken off the roster is still subject to the above selection rules.
Coaches must have their coaching certification for the proper age group from Baseball NL to order to coach at the Provincial and Atlantic levels.
Team managers must collect all-star fees ($125.00) for each player. We provide the jerseys and hats which the players will keep at the end of the season.

All fund raising is the responsibility of the team.
