Summer Minors Baseball 8-9 yo

Registration is now open for the 2016 Summer Minors season. Summer Minors, open to league age 8 and 9 players, is Brookline Youth Baseball's first all kid pitcher/kid catcher league.  The season is five weeks long from July 6 through August 8 with games and practices on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays.  Rosters are completed with the understanding that many families will take a vacation during the summer months and may be away for a week or so during the season.  When registering please note family availability for the season.

Summer Minors also provides many players with their first opportunity play games without pitching machines during any part of the game, with harder baseballs and with standings -- we keep score and games count.  This is a competitive level of in town baseball that allows players to build on their current skills while competing with and against their classmates.

Summer Minors also provides those families that may be interested in summer travel baseball in the future the chance to experience a summer schedule to see if it is right for them.  This year Brookline Youth Baseball will again be fielding summer travel teams for the 9 year old age group.  Many of our U9 - U12 travel baseball players started playing summer ball in the Summer Minors program.

Two parents will coach each team. The program will provide: Jersey and cap for players, student umpires and baseballs. Players provide glove, protective cups (catchers) and their favorite other gear.

Program Cost: $147.50.

Registration begins June 4 and ends when four teams are filled, so register early!

If you have any questions regarding Summer Minors please .

Regards,

, President

Spring 2016 Registration is Now Open

5/4/2016: Registration is now closed for all leagues except A League.

4/13/2016: A is no longer on wait list. The A-League season is starting on Tuesday April 26! We have just added two teams to accommodate a recent surge of registrations so some additional slots are now available for new registrants. Please register now so we can place your player on a team prior to the start of the season.

10-12 year olds can now register for the wait list. Please register but do not submit payment. We will contact you if and when space becomes available.

Welcome to 2016 Brookline Youth Baseball! We’re excited to have everyone back for a new season of play, and look forward to welcoming new players and families to BYB. Let’s get started:

Registration is simple and based on your child’s age. Please see Team and Placement for more information about how players are placed in our newly reorganized leagues. Also, for all players age 9 and older please see important information about tryouts at the end of this message.

If you are wondering whether your 8 year old should play A or AA, click here for more information.

The registration deadline to guarantee a spot for the spring season is March 13, 2016.

To register your child, please read the following:

1. If you are new to BYB, you’ll need to set up an account within our system. Please see “Access or Create Your BYB Account” below for instructions. This will be the only time you’ll need to do this, and it will set us up with your parent and child information until you tell us something’s changed.

2. If your child has played in BYB before click “Register Now” just to the right on this page. It’s Big. It’s Orange. If you can't access your account or if you have any other problems during the registration process please . Please do NOT create additional accounts. Contacting us establishes your registration priority. We will correct the problem and you won't "lose your place in line" should a league become oversubscribed.

3. Remember, if you are stuck somewhere on the site and can't find a way to register, it’s always the Big Orange Button on the home page. (When in doubt, run home!)

5. If you have any questions about how the site functions, please see the FAQ’s. If you have trouble with the website, please . If you have any questions about programming or any other concerns, feel free to contact the appropriate board member under the contact list

Important information about tryouts for players age 9 and older:

  • All players must register before tryouts.
  • The tryout schedule is shown below. During registration you will be asked to select a specific tryout session.
  • Players should arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled time to allow time for check in and warm up.
  • Players should bring a glove and wear sneakers (no cleats).  Please DO NOT wear jerseys or hats from summer travel teams.

Coaching Is . . . Ten Reasons YOU Should Become a Baseball Coach
New coaches are the lifeblood of the system that keeps BYB dynamic and active. Every small era in our development is owed in great part to the parent volunteers who choose to get involved, stay involved and grow their teams. To those who love to spend time with their kids and their kids’ friends, and who value the life lessons that baseball teaches, we proudly invite you to get involved.
  1. Coaching is about giving kids confidence by teaching them a game that literally changes lives.
  2. Coaching is hauling the gear bag around like a custodian, because you are one.
  3. Coaching is a chance to make all kinds of new friends (especially the young ones).
  4. Coaching is making every player know s/he’s the best one on the team.
  5. Coaching is two hours on a green grassy field where the office can’t reach you.
  6. Coaching is the high-fives you give and get from the sweetest faces.
  7. Coaching is assuring a dejected child that the sun will rise tomorrow.
  8. Coaching is a tribute to your own kids’ dreams.
  9. Coaching is a tribute to your community.
  10. Coaching is a tribute to the ones who coached you.
