SUMMER BASEBALL REGISTRATION AND TRYOUTS FOR AGES 13-19
by posted 04/18/2014
 

Tryouts for BYB’s summer baseball teams (ages 13-19) are just around the corner. We hope to offer an American Legion team for ages 17-19, and two or three teams in the Tompkins League for ages 13-16.

Register for Tryouts Now
All players who want to be considered for a big-diamond summer team must register online by May 3 and then attend tryouts. There is no charge to register for tryouts.

Tryout Schedule
Tryouts for all big-diamond teams are scheduled as follows:

Ages 15–19
Sunday, 5/4, 10:00-12:30, Warren Field
For players who will be age 15–19 on 4/30/14, and whose year of birth is 1995 or later.

Age 13
Sunday, 5/4, 12:30–2:30, Warren Field
For players who will be age 13 on 4/30/14, and younger players who will turn 13 by 7/31/14 and want to play on the big diamond this summer.

Age 14
Sunday, 5/11, 10:00–12:00, Warren Field
For players who will be age 14 on 4/30/14.

Look for an Email After Tryouts
Within one to two weeks after tryouts, you will receive an email from a summer team coach informing you whether you were selected for a summer 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.

Pay the Summer Baseball Fee After Tryouts
If you are selected for a summer team, you will be asked to return to the website and pay the summer baseball registration fee. Although the exact fees haven't been determined yet, we expect them to be roughly $250/player for the Tompkins League teams (ages 13-16) and $350/player for the American Legion team (ages 17-19). Fee assistance and waivers are available for those who have a financial hardship.

More Information
If you have any questions, please at or 617-823-2474.

Tryouts
by posted 01/24/2014
 
BYB holds tryouts as a means of evaluating players prior to the Spring season*. It is also an opportunity to get everyone together for a kickoff to a new year, and it’s a lot of fun. Please keep in mind that the tryouts are for team placement only, and not to exclude any player. No child who is registered on time will be denied a spot on a team.

This year’s tryouts will be Saturday, March 8, from 1 - 5 pm in the Pavilion on the top floor of the Tappan Street Gym at Brookline High School and Sunday, March 16, from 9 am - 2 pm at the Boston University Track and Tennis Center, 100 Ashford Street in Allston, behind the Star Market parking lot. All 4th, 5th and 6th graders (except returning Major A players) must attend either one of these two days. Also, 7th graders who are age 12 as of May 1, 2014 and who would like to play in Major A should also tryout on one of these two days. 3rd graders who did not play baseball in BYB last spring and players 13 or older who are new to BYB are also asked to attend one of the two days.

Evaluators will be on hand to assess your player’s skills, which will assist us in creating good teams of reasonable parity. As mentioned, tryouts are intended evaluate player skills and to result in comparable teams. For players who wish to advance to Major A, a good performance is particularly important and we recommend advance preparation. Players currently assigned to a Major A team are not required to tryout. Players 13 or older as of April 30, 2014 also do not need to tryout unless this is their first year in BYB.

*Players in Kindergarten through 2nd grade need not and should not attend tryouts.

Coaching Is . . . Ten Reasons YOU Should Become a Baseball Coach
posted 07/04/1776
 
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.
