The strength of baseball is that every child can play. Nations Baseball understands that the recreational player is the cornerstone of youth baseball. If kids are provided an affordable opportunity to play, they will build team teamwork and love of the game, not just bat last and play every other inning. We have taken our bulk buying power to provide local leagues with an amazing package that can save thousands of dollars in wasted fees that can go right back into your community. Will we dictate to you with rules and restrictions? No. Your community knows best what your kids need. We provide a structure for you to run your league, the opportunity for tournament play, and some amazing web tools to help run your league. And then we get off your back. Sound good?
Players' 2016 midseason ("Mid 2016") and peak rankings in past keeper lists ("Prv. Peak") are also provided: These lists have been published semiannually since 2010 and triannually since 2014, with preseason ("Pre-"), midseason ("Mid") and end-of-season ("End") designated to differentiate the different times of the years in question. For example, Johnny Cueto is listed with a peak of 55 in "End 14," meaning that his best all-time rank was 55th, in the 2014 end-of-season list. A "--" means that the player has never before made the top 250 cut.
