The 2010 Charleston (SC) Men's Adult Baseball League Draft is scheduled to be held :
Sunday April 11th 2:00 PM @ Northwood Academy
Registration and Warmups begin at 1:00PM.
The draft will take about 2 hours. All new players will need to sign in (waiver form), pay $10 draft fee and then warm up. We typically have fielding and hitting (BP) drills to get a feel for each players talent. Pitchers have an opportunity to throw on the side. Then coaches from existing and new teams privately hold the draft (15 min) Coaches then meet with their new players and .let them know about practices, player fees, etc. Almost all players have been placed on a team the last 15 years but there is no guarantee of being picked up. If you have questions or would like to form your own team please CONTACT US.
Yes. We are a self-supported league. We pay for our own uniforms, as well as our own league/team fees to cover fields, umpires (2 per game), baseballs, insurance, league maintenance costs, etc. Uniforms run about $50 and league/team fees run about $160 per player. But it varies by team. We'd rather you know the costs up front because it is unfortunate when people get drafted and then choose not to play because of cost. This hurts the team which drafts that individual. In this league, since everybody pays, everybody plays.
