AGSL enters teams in the Middle Essex Fall League run by USA Softball of Massachusetts.
Teams are put together for each age group which is based on birth year and not grade as in the In-Town Spring season.
It is a separate registration and the players have different uniforms and travel to other towns in and around Essex County and also parts of Middlesex County.
Doubleheader games are played on Saturdays against a single team. Games are often in the morning but start times vary. The season generally starts the weekend after Labor Day and runs five to seven weeks.
AGSL is seeking to field Fall Ball teams in the 10U, 12U, and 14U divisions. We will need enough coaches, pitchers and willing catchers at each level to field a team. We are currently accepting signups to be placed on a waitlist so we can see if there is enough interest at the various age levels. There is no cost to sign up for the waitlist. Fees (likely to be $99 or less) will only be due if teams are formed and your player is placed on a roster. Signing up for the waitlist does not guarantee your player a roster spot. As this is a competitive league and player safety is a consideration, priority will be given to returning players. Click here to sign up for Fall Ball consideration.
