Re: Baseball dboard

First there is Elite Baseball League and now the Premier Baseball Conference both a step up from traditional AAU and Town Ball. And both leagues all the parents think their kids are playing college ball...

So we are already having hockey parallels here... the best part here is that PBC split from EBL since a bunch of the teams thought they were too good for the EBL and needed to create a new paradigm.... Substitute E9 and EHF and you get what happened in hockey...
And unlike hockey where your bender's game is over in an hour and 15 minutes; these leagues schedule doubleheaders both Saturday and Sunday april to august, throughout the greater new england area (pre-covid) and forget about little johnny's arm - who needs pitch counts, we got a game to win...

NEW for 2021!!

The EBL and PBC are now back together in the New Balance Select league...One league with a billion teams and lots of levels. But the best programs are now all in one league.

Re: Baseball dboard

What is the relative competitiveness of the levels in PBC and compared to town?

Elite > D1 > D1a > D2 = town?

For the most part this is spot on if you look at the average competition at each level, though there is an occasional exception. For example, a top E9 teams can likely compete with bottom EHF Elite teams, bottom E9/Platinum teams often compete with top BHL American/Gold Upper teams, etc.
