NOTE: For the 2017 season, we have adjusted the Palomino League age group. The Palomino League will now be for players that are in 11th/12th grade.
The Palomino league is for kids that are just finishing 11th/12th grade. The league consists of some players which are concurrent high-school baseball players, some who previously played Freshmen or Sophomore baseball, or others who just transitioned from Colt Baseball. The league consists of teams from the Northern Suburbs, Northwest Suburbs, West Suburbs, and parks within the city of Chicago. The Summer season begins in early June and runs through the end of July. Teams play an unbalanced schedule with teams being required to play a minimum of 12 games, while other teams can play 20+ league sanctioned games if they desire to do so.
In addition to Palomino aged teams, the NSYBA allows younger 15u or 16u club/travel/academy teams to play up at the Palomino age group during the Summer.
The Fall Palomino League runs from late August, through mid-October, concluding with an end of season weekend tournament the second to last weekend in October. Our Fall Ball program is our transition season. For Palomino, this will consist of incoming Juniors and Seniors for the new school year.
