ECABL sets season-opener for 2024

Spring/Summer registration is now open

Registration for the 2024 spring/summer ECABL season has begun, and this year the league is offering two weeks of spring training games to get prepared for the regular season.

The East Carolina Amateur Baseball League will again have two age divisions: the 18+ Division and the 35+ Division. The 18 and older division will play games on Sundays, and the 35 and older division will play games on Tuesdays and Wednesday nights. The season-opener for the 35+ Division will be Tuesday, Feb. 27. The season-opener for the 18+ Division will be Saturday, March 2. Typically, 18+ games are on Sunday, but this Saturday game will be part of an opening day ceremony that will include free hot dogs and drinks, an awards ceremony for 2023 award winners, and fundraiser family wiffle ball games. Registration for the wiffle ball games will begin in the coming weeks.

Spring training is expected to be Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 17-18, and Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 24-25. Each team will play one game each weekend. Teams from outside the league are expected to play. The games will not count toward the standings; they are designed to ease players into the season, and to allow managers to evaluate pitching and other aspects of their rosters.

Registration is $190 prior to Feb. 1. After Feb. 1, registration is $200. This does not include uniform costs.

From the Commissioner:

When we finished last season, news broke that the Old North State League, a league made up of college players, wanted to create a team in New Bern and take Kafer Park for their home. After months of discussions with the city, the ONSL has a nine-year contract -- signed last night -- to lease the field from the city, and Kafer Park will be their home. So, where does that leave us?

We are working on establishing a permanent home for the ECABL. This year we will use multiple fields. We will start the season at Cutler Field, 1225 Pinetree Drive. This field is used by the Babe Ruth league. They gear up for their season in late April and May, so we have it for all our games through April. The city said they could add a mound to Heath Field, which is next to Cutler. So we expect to use both Cutler and Heath after April, working around the Babe Ruth league and some other city leagues using those fields.

Will we play at Kafer Park in the future? We expect to, but we will work around the schedule of the ONSL. We have had conversations with the ONSL. Kafer Park is going to go through a transformation. In the coming weeks you will see all the fencing torn down. It will be replaced with new fencing -- at least 30 feet high all the way around. There will be a new backstop and new dugouts. They are going to work on the dirt/clay in the infield, and they are expecting to build a grandstand for seating.

The ONSL begins its season at the end of May, and they run through July. We expect to play some games there during the that time period, when the home team is away and the field is not in use. And we may be able to schedule fall season games there. When we do use it, it will be in much better condition than it has been, and being the good guys that we are, we will leave it in better condition than we received it.

We are trying to find a permanent home for the ECABL for the majority of our games and for our practices. There are a limited number of fields in Craven County that can accommodate baseball. Many of the fields are too small, and even fewer have lights for night games. On top of that, there are other organizations also using those fields. We've got some things we are working on for the future. This season, however, we will have to adjust and play on fields that are available to us at the time we need them. And I would not be surprised if we play on four different fields this year -- Cutler, Heath, Creekside and Kafer. It's going to take patience, coordination and communication to make this work, and we're definitely going to make this work.

New baseball, softball training facility set to open

Local baseball and softball players may have a new home away from home beginning this weekend when the Crib, a new indoor training facility in New Bern, will have its grand opening.

The Crib has one batting cage but will expand to two cages in the next few weeks, said owner Alex Vizcarronndo, a former ECABL player. The air-conditioned facility also includes a pitching mound, an area to take ground balls, a stretching area and a meeting room that teams or leagues can use for meetings.

The grand opening of the facility will be at 10 a.m. Saturday. Along with the facility being open, there will be hot dogs and games of cornhole for people who want to stop by and take a look.

The facility will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and from 4 to 8 p.m. weekdays. Those hours will expand once school ends next month.
