Summer Senior Baseball (Age 13 to 16) Registration Open
This message is directed at baseball players age 13 to 16 (as of April 30, 2016).
For the third straight summer, Northboro will field a team in the Minuteman Baseball Babe Ruth Summer League (www.mmbrl.com). If there is enough interest, we will submit two teams this year with rosters capped at 15 players.
The summer program provides a summer recreational baseball opportunity for players age 13 to 16 as of April 30, 2016. Players who play in the spring season are given priority but spring participation is not required.
Games will begin the week of June 20th, with games being played on Monday through Thursday nights only (no weekends). The schedule is a 12 game schedule (2 games per week) with half of the games at home (Memorial Field or Algonquin). The single elimination playoffs will begin on Monday August 1st and the season should be over by August 6th (weather permitting).
Participating towns in the Minuteman League include: Acton-Boxborough, Ayer, Bolton, Concord, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Dunstable, Groton, Hudson, Marlborough, Maynard, Shirley, Southborough, Stow, Sudbury, Lincoln, Wayland, Westborough and Westford.
The cost for the summer team is $125, but if you register on or before May 31, you will receive a $25 discount. Please register for the team using the link below:
Little League has adopted new bat standards for the 2018 season. For those planning on buying a bat in the next year or so, this could have an impact on your decision. Any bats not meeting the new standard will not be allowed after the 2017 season. The new bats are not yet being produced. See the info below from Little League, and you can click on the link at the end for more information.
With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved. Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.
