MANAGERS AND DISCOUNTS:
All managers are entitled to a discount up to $150, if his team is complete with a minimum of 12 total players (including himself), and he doesn't require additional help from the NABA to complete his team.
All tournament fees, whether on the team fee or individual fee do not include a uniform or cap. Teams and individual players are responsible to acquire their own uniform top and cap. However, the NABA can help any team or individual player who needs assistance with a uniform and cap for an additional fee. The NABA must have all uniform and cap orders 4 weeks prior to the tournament. The cutoff date is September 19, 2016 to order any uniforms or caps. There will be an additional charge of $20 for a uniform top and $15 for a cap on any and all orders. To order any uniforms or caps, please call 800-621-6479 and ask for Joe Collins.
If a group of individual players are used to create a team, the NABA will provide an MLB name for the team so that all players can go out and acquire a Majestic uniform and cap prior to the tournament.
EMERGENCY SUBSTITUTE PLAYER:
If you would like to play in more than one game per day by being listed as an EMERGENCY SUBSTITUTE PLAYER then on the registration give us your name, primary team assignment, Las Vegas contact phone number or cell phone number, age, height, weight, and playing position preferences will be given out to all managers, and you may be contacted (not guaranteed). You may also promote yourself as an emergency player on your own.
ELIGIBLE SECONDARY PLAYERS AND COSTS:
If you are interested in playing more than one game a day (NOT GUARANTEED) then you may register to play on a secondary team as long as you are age eligible to play in that division. If you are interested in playing more than one game a day (Guaranteed), then you may register to play on the TEAM USA organization as long as you are age eligible to play in that division. Team USA will play all of their games at 3 PM each day and the only way you will not be able to play with Team USA, is if your primary team is scheduled to play Team USA. To play a second game and be a secondary player the cost is $50 for 5 games. When registering, please add $50.00 in the secondary player box and add it to your total.
PLEASE NOTE FOR TEAM USA ORGANIZATIONS:
The tournament will assign TEAM USA organizations with players who are primary players from existing teams who are interested in playing more than one game a day. These players are called secondary players. These secondary players for TEAM USA will be responsible for showing up at the game for the TEAM USA they have been assigned to play for. The only exception may be if your primary team is scheduled to play against a TEAM USA. The NABA will do all it can to eliminate the possibility of matching a secondary player on a TEAM USA against his primary team. However, the NABA cannot guarantee that such a conflict may arise. Since the TEAM USA games will be played at the 3:00 PM time slot, we are hopeful it will eliminate most of the conflicts in allowing you to make it to your TEAM USA game.
No secondary players will receive a second uniform or matching cap for the TEAM USA they will be playing for. You will use your primary team's uniform and cap so it is obvious that you are a secondary player playing in the game. In addition, playing in a second game incurs costs for fields, umpires, and baseballs so there is an add-on cost for being a secondary player. Each secondary player must pay an additional $50 in order to be assigned to a TEAM USA organization.
