1st Grade Instructional Baseball Still Open!
There are still spots available in BYB's Instructional League program for 1st graders! This award-winning program is fun, safe and develops the initial skills necessary for solid, fundamental baseball. It's a great place to begin your coaching career as well, because the program is highly structured and features a collaborative learning and teaching environment for parents and kids. Most kids who start with us in first grade go on to play a full six years in Little League and many advance past that. Want to know more? See this.
Practices start April 28 and there is still limited availability for your child. But you must register now.
Click the orange Register Now button, and select Spring 2015 Grade 1 and 2. Let
know if you have any questions.
Spring baseball season is just getting started, but tryouts for Brookline Youth Baseball's summer teams on the big diamond are right around the corner. We hope to offer two or three teams in the Tompkins League for ages 13-16.
Tryouts for big-diamond summer teams will take place at Warren Field on Saturday, May 2:
10:00-12:00 — Players who will be age 13 or 14 on April 30 12:00-2:00 — Players who will be age 15 or 16 on April 30
All players who want to be considered for a big-diamond summer team must register online by Friday, May 1, and must attend tryouts. Registration is open now. There is no charge to register for tryouts.
Within two weeks after tryouts, you will receive an email from a summer team coach informing you whether you were selected for a summer baseball team. Keep in mind that BYB may not be able to offer a spot to everyone who attends tryouts, and we may not be able to field a summer team for every age group. If you are selected for a summer team, you will be asked to return to this website and pay the summer baseball registration fee. Although the exact fee hasn't been determined yet, we expect it to be roughly $300/player. Fee assistance and waivers are available for those who have a financial hardship.
SUMMER BASEBALL SCHEDULE
The summer practice and game schedule runs from early June through early August, and games are played on weeknights and weekends throughout eastern Massachusetts. Players are expected to be available for the majority of the season.
If you have a schedule conflict on May 2 or any questions about summer baseball, please contact John Bucci at
BYB is pleased to offer Summer Minors Baseball again this year for skilled 8 - 9 year olds. Summer evenings are a great time for baseball, and Summer Minors is family friendly and competitive, picking up where Spring Ball leaves off.
This will be a five week program with four teams. It will be kid pitch! It begins on Sunday, July 5 and runs through Sunday August 9. All events will be on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays, all beginning at 5:30PM. The program will be weighted toward playing games, with a few practices in the beginning. The league will use the slightly modified Spring Minors rules. All baseball will be in Brookline, *this is not a travel league.*
Families who take vacations are still eligible and encouraged to play. We will ask you about your availability when you register, and design each team so that there are enough players throughout the season.
Requirements: This league is designed for kids that are entering the 3rd or 4th grade, who have completed at least one season of baseball, two seasons preferred. Kids who are currently in Spring Minors at any age may play. This is not beginning baseball - players should be skilled and enthusiastic about playing good ball and ready for a challenge.
The program will provide: Jersey and cap for players, student umpires, baseballs. There will be two parent coaches for each team. Players provide glove, protective cups (catchers) and their favorite other gear.
Program Cost: $125 plus Town of Brookline Fields Fee ($20). Registration begins now and ends when four teams are filled, so register early!
Registration for Grades 3-10 is now in wait list mode. Tryouts for Major A have occurred and no further participants may join Major A. Players who wish to play in the Seniors League will be removed promply from the wait list, as there is still room. All others will be removed if space is deemed available. We have had a tremendous turnout for baseball this year, thank you everyone.
Welcome to 2015 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:

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.
Coaching is about giving kids confidence by teaching them a game that literally changes lives.
Coaching is hauling the gear bag around like a custodian, because you are one.
Coaching is a chance to make all kinds of new friends (especially the young ones).
Coaching is making every player know s/he’s the best one on the team.
Coaching is two hours on a green grassy field where the office can’t reach you.
Coaching is the high-fives you give and get from the sweetest faces.
Coaching is assuring a dejected child that the sun will rise tomorrow.
Coaching is a tribute to your own kids’ dreams.
Coaching is a tribute to your community.
Coaching is a tribute to the ones who coached you.
