Silverman Awards Go to Lerner, Ko and Reed

The 2015 Herbert M. Silverman Award for Sportsmanship was given to three recipients at last night's Major A All Star Game. "For acts of selflessness and courage," as the award plaques read, Hirshy Lerner, Lev Ko and Jasper Reed were each recognized as the three players who weathered a change of teams so that Major A could expand to seven teams in 2015. 

"Each of these guys was moved from their old team because of the expansion draft, and went on to do amazing things. Ko and Lerner helped to fuel the progress of a brand new team, the Cubs, and Reed gave the Dodgers a big bat and depth at catcher. They all provided leadership," says Phil Schroeder, Major A Commissioner. 

James Wyner, coach of the Cubs, talked about Ko's and Lerner's impact in the dugout: "They took on co-captain roles, psyching the team up before every game. Every game was a new competitive challenge, and on the night we enjoyed our first victory, a very well played game over the Pirates, they took their role to the next level by taking over the post game session and deliberating thoughtfully over who should get the game ball, that recognition becoming all the more powerful for having come from these two peer leaders."

Coach Steve Glick of the Dodgers noted that Reed, "Fit in seamlessly to the Dodgers, had a positive attitude all season, and led by example in helping to teach the newcomers to Major A. All in all, he's a wonderful team player."

Congratulations to these fine young men!

Summer Minors Baseball League in Brookline

Summer Minors League for Brookline 8-9 Year Olds

June 19, 2015 - Now only accepting waitlisted registrations.

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 Monday, July 6 and runs through Monday August 10. 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 slightly modified Spring Minors rules. All baseball will be in Brookline, *this is not a travel league.*
 
Families who take limited 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!

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.
