Why is the Greater Hudson Valley Baseball League the finest youth travel baseball organization in the NY/CT/NJ area?

UNMATCHED LEAGUE PARITY – The GHVBL is composed of teams in one of 4 divisions (D1, D2, D3, & D4).  Stressing COMPETITIVE BALANCE, we treat divisions exactly the same.  As a result, no league in the area produces more 1-3 run games…  If we have enough teams in a division, we will host playoffs & championships at each division level.  In larger divisions, we split playoff brackets into a Championship, Gold and/or Silver brackets. The only difference is we only award custom banners to the championship bracket winner in each division.

THE LEAGUEBRAIN DIFFERENCE – GHVBL uses industry leading custom software (LeagueBrain) to facilitate schedules, team contacts, game results, and team standings all year. All GHVBL teams have access to a team portal to create schedules around team availability. LeagueBrain provides detailed contact information for your peer teams allowing coaches to pair up with similar teams for weekday, weekend, day or night, single or doubleheader games. Teams may schedule around local recreation leagues, blackout days, tournaments, etc. – simply set game details based on team availability. Play as many games as you like – or just fill in around your tournament schedule – 100% your call. Develop your kids at your pace.

ALL TEAMS MAKE THE PLAYOFFS – Regardless of how many teams participate – all may compete for the championship and awards in playoff tournaments at the conclusion of the regular season as long as you play the regular season minimum – (6 games in Spring/Fall, 8 games in Summer), although you may play more or less games.  Treat the regular season as a chance to develop your kids WITHOUT THE FEAR of missing the postseason  The regular season is used for play-off bracket seeding only.

ORGANIZED & PROMPT COMMUNICATION – Our WEBSITE (WWW.GHVBL.COM) is updated REAL TIME with game schedules, results, discussion board, & live standings! WE ASSIGN THE BEST professional umpires in the area – as long as you are in our league area – you never have to schedule an umpire…
