Towamencin Baseball partners with other local organizations to offer a competitive inter-community Fall baseball program. The structure of the Fall Program is separated into A, AA, and AAA divisions. There is also baseball available for older players through our Connie Mack program.
Unlike our Spring program, registration is limited as there are a lesser number of teams. Registration is on a first-come first-served basis and we limit the number of players on each team to 13. Typically we field three teams in each of the A, AA and AAA Divisions. We accept a total of 39 registrations for each of those divisions. If enough players register to field four teams at a certain level, we will add a 4th team to that division as long as we are able to provide adequate coaching for each team.
Within each division a draft is used so that talent is divided as evenly as possible among the teams to ensure that each team is equipped to compete.
The season begins the weekend after Labor Day. There are 1 or 2 games played per weekend and they are played on either Friday nights (under lights), or on Saturday and Sunday. Games are held at Towamencin facilities as well as the fields of the other participating programs. Each of the divisions usually holds a small season ending tournament which concludes the last weekend in October with trophies awarded.
