Maine Legion Baseball Calendar

The following is a framework for a self imposed calendar that we believe ALL Maine Legion Baseball teams should adhere to.

Before November 1st of each year:

A new team should have the NEW TEAM FORM sent into the Maine Chairman to show intent to form a team for the following season.

An existing team should complete the TEAM INFORMATION FORM to be included on all correspondence and to make sure manager/coaching contacts are up to date.

January 1st To February 15:

Make sure the forms stated above have been completed and then register your teams online at https://baseball.legion.org/

February 15 To March 31:

Call your opponents to create your DRAFT season schedule.
Have your district game schedule (DRAFT) done by first Sunday in April. Understand these early schedules are subject to change as teams are added until June 1, but much can be gained with this early planing.

By May 15:

Pay your fees and buy your insurance. Make sure all your volunteers, coaches etc. fill in their online background check application and complete their Pure Baseball – Abuse Awareness for Adults training course. Complete Certifications as necessary.

Before your season starts:

Make sure you have two legion registered umpires assigned for each district game. A team can either hire their own umpires using the list from our website or they can allow an “umpire assigner” (if they know one) to assign their games for them.
The required fees for our umpires are:

    • For senior games, the required minimum fee of $80.00 for a seven (7)-inning game is to be paid to each umpire.
    • For junior games, the required minimum fee of $70.00 for a seven (7)-inning game is to be paid to each umpire.

You’re online Form 1 must be filled out by your first district game or June 25th, which ever comes first. PDF Available HERE.
Your team picture should be taken and uploaded as soon as possible once your complete team has been formed.

REMEMBER, once your Form 1 (Roster) has been filled out online and submitted, it can be changed by our Chairman if a mistake has been found.
It becomes an official document once it is forwarded to the national office by our Chairman. Our Chairman has until June 30th to do so after that, we cannot fix a mistake.

Before you play your first district game,

the paperwork that you send to your district Chairman shall include:

Senior Legion

  • Copy of your complete schedule (district and non-district games)
  • A copy of each player’s Form 2*

For new players:

  • An original birth certificate or a player’s passport
  • A copy of the Form 77Team Declaration Form for every “Option C” player

If you have a waived (transfer player):

  • A copy of the Form 76 and Form 77 – Player Transfer Form, Team Declaration Form
  • A copy of the Form 6 – Dual Participation – for every player who is playing on another team besides your own legion team.

Junior Legion

  • Copy of your complete schedule (district and non-district games)
  • A copy of each player’s Form 2*

For new players:

  • An original birth certificate or a player’s passport

* If a player is a dual rostered player, a Form 2 must be submitted to both the junior and senior team. Each Form 2 shall
note that a player is dual rostered. If a new player is dual rostered, original birth certificate shall go to the senior team.

Once the Season Begins:

Game results need to be reported and posted in a timely manner. GameChanger will be utilized so there should not be an issue, but one person from each team shall be assigned to verify that the results of the game have been reported properly.

If there has been a rain our or rescheduling of the game for any reason, that must also be reported and a make up date presented.
