East Carolina Amateur Baseball League
Thursday March 21, 5:21 PM
The East Carolina Amateur Baseball League has a new website and will try to communicate with players and the community better than in the past.
The new website can be found at www.ecabl.net and will be updated more frequently with game summaries, league information, game schedule updates, league documents, polls, team pages and more. The website is starting out simple and will expand to meet the needs of the players and the league.
The ECABL will try to cross-publicize information better using the website and Facebook. This will be a gradual process and we invite players or anyone interested in the league to give us their opinions.

Opening Day is March 24. The defending-champion Orioles will host the Yankees at 1 p.m. at Kafer Park to kick off the new season. The Braves will host the Red Sox at 4 p.m. and the Pirates will host the Cubs at 7 p.m.
Each team will play 15 games during the regular season and will play each team three times. Games will be held on Sundays at Kafer Park at 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Each game will last seven innings unless there is a tie. Tie games will go to extra innings. Standard extra-inning rules apply and the game will be played until there is a winner or until the the league time limit has been reached.
Rain outs will be played the Wednesday following the rain out at 7 p.m. at either Kafer Park or Creekside Park. Which teams will play at which parks will be determined by the league immediately following the rain out.
No games will be held Easter Sunday, Mother's Day or Memorial Day. Games will be played on Father's Day because we want to play baseball and should be allowed to do whatever we want on that day. In fact, wives, girl friends and children should be required to attend these games and cheer us on. But rather than require it, we are only suggesting it strongly and will make a list of those who fail to attend, so that we can use that as a "get-out-of-jail-free" card when we forget a birthday or anniversary.
A post-season tournament is expected to begin July 28. The ECABL championship game will be held Aug. 4. The dates of the post season could be affected by rain outs that extend the regular season or weather conditions when the post season begins. The official post-season schedule will be announced as the season concludes.

Each game will be seven innings, baring extra innings to break tie scores.
A post-season tournament will be held in late July or early August, depending on rain dates and possible make-ups at the end of the season.
