Please read the following important information on eligibility

Any team found playing an ineligible player will be penalized by forfeiting all games that the ineligible player participated in while holding an ineligible status.

Each student-athlete shall complete his five seasons participation in intercollegiate baseball within six calendar years from the beginning of the semester or quarter in which the student-athlete first registered for a minimum full time program of studies in a collegiate institution, with time spent in the armed services, on official church missions or with recognized foreign aid services of the U.S. government being excepted.

         5.07.1

         first opportunity following the completion of any one of the commitments

         described in the exceptions in this bylaw, the elapsed time (i.e. the exact

         number of calendar days) between completion of the commitment and the

         first opportunity for enrollment may be added to the exact number of days

         served on active duty in the armed services or on an official church

         mission and will not count toward student-athlete’s six year eligibility.  It is

         not permissible to extend the six-year period by additional time beyond the

         first opportunity to enroll; i.e. the opening day of classes of the first regular

         term at the institution in which the student athlete enrolls as a regular

         student immediately following the termination of the active duty

         commitment.

NCBA rules indicate that any competition, regardless of time, during an NCBA Sanctioned Baseball Game counts as a season of competition.  It does not matter how long the player was involved in a particular game (for example, one at bat, one pitch, one pinch running appearance), the player is charged with one season of competition.

         6.01.0

         At the time of any roster submission, a letter from the academic institution
