Tri State Elite Baseball League
Tri State Elite Baseball League (TSE) is a well-established and respected travel baseball organization located in the Mid Atlantic region. We have over 500 teams participating from age divisions 7U through 18U. Additionally, we host various competitive tournaments and support various TSE sanctioned tournaments, including Sports at the Beach. TSE is starting its eleventh season, running full spring/summer and fall seasons. Our philosophy is simple, provide more and better baseball to teams participating in our League. Further, provide a competitive baseball experience for all levels of talent, as well as provide an exceptional level and quality experience for each team in the League. TSE is operated and affiliated with baseball people who have many years of experience at all levels.
Highlights of the League
Scheduling Flexibility – each team creates their own schedule within the season boundaries working with other coaches. They set the date, time and location. There are plenty of scheduling opportunities as most divisions have between 40 and 70 teams. Teams can play as many or few games as they deem appropriate for their own team.
Competitive Baseball at Various Skill Levels – each team classifies their team skill at Rookies, Minors or Majors which is used for scheduling purposes. Teams are able to schedule against common skill levels to provide for competitive play. Teams may schedule outside of skill levels as well.
Playing Rules – we follow major league baseball rules for the most part; however, we have added certain rules to provide and allow coaches to coach based on the objectives that they have established for their own team. Decisions for the league are made in the best interest of the league, teams and players.
More Games – because of the scheduling opportunities, teams have the ability to play more games against different teams in a league environment versus traveling to tournaments each weekend. Certainly there can be a savings to a team’s budget and related expenses that go with the travel to a tournament.
End of Season Playoffs – we provide a season ending single elimination type tournament for our playoffs for each skill level.
Informative Website – we keep our website current with pertinent information to all league members. Scores and standings are timely posted and updated throughout the season. Our Coach’s Corner tab provides opportunities for players looking for teams and coaches posting team information. All information and updates relevant to the league are included in our website (tsebaseball.net).
League Fee – $225 (continuous Spring/Summer season) - $150 (Fall season)
Insurance – responsibility of each team (app $100)
League Communication – league updates are provided during the season to all league members. Communication during the season is timely followed up with a response to any and all matters. Issues during the season are reviewed and discussed at a board level and timely resolved. League kickoff meetings for new coaches, teams and programs occur to help out with the transition to the league. Further, TSE personnel welcomes the opportunity to travel and meet individually with programs to discuss TSE with you.
