DICK'S Sporting Goods Appreciation Day

On Saturday, March 2, the 5th Street Station, Charlottesville, Dick’s Sporting Goods store location will be hosting its annual appreciation discount day to assist families and players with preparing for their upcoming baseball season.  Any Northside Baseball League participant can bring in the appreciation day flyer to receive 20% off your purchase (some exclusions apply) on that date.  Get your baseball gear along with anything else you've been eyeing at a discount!  While you're there, stop by the Northside Baseball League table to register to win gift certificates to Dick’s Sporting Goods.

You can also bring the baseball coupon sheet, which is good for discounts at Dick's Sporting Goods (as listed on the coupon) all season long.  Note that you will not be able to use this coupon in addition to the appreciation day coupon on the appreciation day.

Due to currently wet fields with more rain expected Saturday, Minors and Majors player evaluations will be held inside the Sutherland Gymnasium on Sunday, Feb 24th. Due to gymnasium availability, we need to change previously advertised times.

Minors will be held from 2:30-4:00
 - Last name A-K please arrive at 2:15
 - Last name L-Z please arrive at 3:00

Majors will be held from 4:00-5:30
 - Last name A-K please arrive at 3:30
 - Last name L-Z please arrive at 4:15

If you cannot attend, and have not already done so, please email the division commissioner where your child is registered: 

All players should wear sneakers, NO CLEATS. And should bring a glove and a bat. Due to indoor evaluations, players will only be required to stay for the amount of time it takes to be evaluated. Once your son or daughter has run through the stations, you will be free to go.

Teams will be built by Feb. 28th, and you should expect to hear from your teams coach by 2 March. 

Thanks for playing Northside!

Evaluation Changes & Volunteers, Coaches, Scholarship, and Coupons

Evaluations This Weekend

Due to a change in division format for 2019, player evaluations for the Rookie division are not required. Therefore the February 23rd scheduled Rookie evaluations have been cancelled.

Minors and Majors evaluations will remain on February 24th at 1pm (Minors) and 3pm (Majors) but will take place on the Hollymead Lower Field, weather permitting. If we experience inclement weather, the evaluations for those two divisions will take place inside the Sutherland Gymnasium. Please monitor your email and/or the league website and Facebook page.

In order to help run player evaluations in minors and majors, we need three parents to volunteer to assist for each session. This counts as your required 2 hours of volunteer time for the league so please consider helping us out, and satisfying your volunteer requirement early. If interested, please email


Coach selections for the Minor and Major divisions for the 2019 Spring season are as follows:

Chris Guyton
Jason Jennings
Bill Owens
Mike Pariseau
Jim Rolf
Steve Yow
Darian Cochran
Sam Danne
Ray Feola
Adam Frazier
Germaine Porter
Thanks to these coaches and their assistants for volunteering their time and bringing their enthusiasm to another great season at Northside!

We are still in need of a sixth coach for the Minors division, so if you or someone you know is interested in coaching a team please reach out to either Chris Guyton or Steve Yow.
