Summer Rec Baseball 2015
 
We are proud to introduce our Summer Recreational Baseball Program for 2015! 
 
Leagues: league eligibility is for boys and girls and is determined by the grade level that they will entering in Fall 2015.  This allows players to start experiencing the next level of competition in our league structure.  Our summer recreational programs are not open to those playing on any Travel Summer Baseball or Softball teams.

NOTE: This program is open to boys and girls, but this is not a softball program.

 
·         T-Ball/Farm A/Farm AA are instructional leagues, open to players from Bridgewater and surrounding towns.  All games will be played in Bridgewater.  We can honor all requests for children to be paired together, as long as they are in the same grade.  Minimum age 5 years old by December 31, 2015.
·         Minors/Majors are slightly more competitive, and teams will be balanced to ensure we have enough pitchers and catchers, and an even distribution of talent.  These leagues are also open to out-of-town players, but all games will be played in Bridgewater.  We will honor requests to pair players together as much as possible.
·         BABE RUTH LEAGUE - 16-18 year olds: A competitive league that plays as part of a local network of teams, with home and away games each week.  Eligible players are 16 years old by May 1, 2015 and 18 years old on January 1, 2015.  The summer season runs from mid-June through early August.  Games are played on the major league 90 foot fields, and rules follow Babe Ruth guidelines.

FORMAT: Teams rosters will be kept at 11-12 to maximize playing time and allow for vacations and days off.  The program is instructional and competitive, and encourages children to play positions they may not have played before, like pitching and catching, with a focus on developing their skills.  Managers and coaches will work on building skills and moving players around to play different positions.  There are no playoffs, no trophies.
 
COACHES: A big part of our league’s success is based on great coaching support and involvement.  Every year we add a whole new set of coaches to lead our T-Ball program, in addition to on-going needs for all age groups.  If you are interested, please indicate it on the form when you register.  You don’t have to be a baseball expert - we are looking for well-organized and positive individuals to get involved and help maintain a strong and fun program for our kids.  Rutgers Certification courses are run at different times during the year.  Please visit our "Events" tab at the top of the site to find the next available Rutgers Certification Course date.  We cannot have a solid program without our great volunteer coaches, so please consider joining the team!
