Rosters

Parents, please verify that your child appears in the roster for the appropriate league.

Every year we have a few random clerical errors, so if you don't see your child in the appropriate league, please look through the other leagues before contacting the webmaster. If you don't see your child on any of these rosters, or if there's a typo in your child's name, don't worry. It's usually a simple thing to sort out. Contact the webmaster, and we'll get you squared away.

Also keep in mind that these rosters are continuously updated. You won't receive an email each time we update the rosters, but these links will always take you to the very latest updates.

Summer 2017

Fall 2016
We assign players to teams based on age for Fall Ball. Fall Ball is a league for the players to get extra games in so they get more experience for next season. It is much less competitive than the regular season. Even though it is called Minors, Majors, Juniors, etc. we divide the players up by age. Over the past few years we have found this system works much better with the limited amount of teams in Fall Ball.

It's Not Too Late to Sign Up!

Missed the signup deadline? There is still limited availability in all age groups. But hurry!

78ers through Juniors Baseball and Softball must be signed up no later than Thursday, March 22.

Seniors registration is still open, but we are requesting that you sign up sooner than later.

Click here to sign up.

Umpire Meeting Schedule Change

Due to Juniors' baseball tryouts taking place at EGRHS's gym this Saturday at 1:30pm, the new umpire meeting time has been pushed back to 2:30pm and will take place at the same location. Again, any individual interested in becoming a new umpire this season should plan on attending this meeting hosted by Southern's umpire coordinator, Jim Weiss.

Tryout Session and Umpire Meeting Reminder

A reminder that the tryout session is scheduled for Saturday, March 24, at the East Grand Rapids High School gymnasium. Only certain players need to attend, so please take the time to read through the information about tryout day to determine if and when your child needs to be there. Click here to read all the details.

You can verify that your child is registered by clicking here.

Softball players will not be having a tryout session. They can expect to be contacted by coaches once the rosters are finalized.

Also, a change in policy from previous years: If your child is 10 years old and wishes to try out for the Major League (baseball), he or she must be present at tryouts. Otherwise, 10-year-olds will be placed in the Minor League by default. Also, all 10 year olds who are new to Southern this year should plan to come to the tryouts. 

Finally, umpires, don't forget the informational meeting immediately following the tryouts.
