2018 Daphne Youth Baseball Information

 

Registration Dates - Jan. 1 - Jan. 31 

All registration is done online at www.daphneyouthbaseball.com.

Registration Fee is $115 per player. 

 

Divisions

TBALL

4-5 yr old tball and 5-6 yr old tball - The tball age group will be split into two divisions.  The 5 yr old players will go through a player evaluation and then they will be split based on those evaluations.  There will be a 4&5 yr old division and a 5&6 yr old division.  They will play under the same tball rules...all players must hit off tee, etc...

 

PEANUT

7 yr old coach pitch - All 7 yr old players will play in their own division playing coach pitch peanut rules.

8 yr old machine pitch - All 8 yr old players will play in their own division playing machine pitch rules. 

Cal Ripken Baseball, with whom we are affiliated, made the change to 7 yr old coach pitch this season for post season play.  We always try to play our league as close to post season rules as possible which is why we are making these changes.  We will likely play an interleague schedule with Spanish Fort in the 7 and 8's so there will be plenty of teams to compete against.  This shouldn't require too much travel to Spanish Fort, maybe 4-5 times throughout the season for each team.

 

Minor

The minor division will be 9 & 10 yr olds playing kid pitch.

 

Major

The major division will be 11 & 12 yr olds playing kid pitch

 

Dixie Boys

The Dixie Boys division will be 13 & 14 yr olds playing kid pitch on a field with 54' mound and 80' bases.  This division will play interleague with Spanish Fort and Fairhope.  Most of their practice will take place on Field 3 at Trione Park.  Games will be played at Trione Park and in Spanish Fort and Fairhope.

 

Player Evaluations - ALL players, including coaches kids and protected players need to attend one of the eval days.  If a player can not attend either day, please contact the commissioner of your age group to let them know.

Games

Opening Day will be Saturday, March 3 for Lott Park.  All teams will play a game that day and team and individual pictures will be taken that day.  The regular season will begin the following week.  Teams will usually play 2 games per week.  We will not play games March 26 - March 31 due to Spring Break.  Games will resume April 2 and the season should finish up around the first week of May.  Most games will be played during the week, but there is a possibility that some games could be played on weekends if necessary.

Uniforms and Equipment

League will provide game jersey and cap for each player.  Parents must provide pants, socks, belt, cleats, etc...  Your coach wil notify you what color pants, socks and belt you need once teams are selected.  Each player will need a glove and batting helmet.  You ar enot required to buy a bat, but if you do please make sure it has the USA Baseball stamp on it.  All bats must have the new stamp on it or it will not be allowed in games. 

Coaches 

If you are interested in coaching or assisting this season, please make sure you complete the coaches registration.  It is located in the same place as the player registration (at the bottom).  All coaches, new and returing, must complete the registration.  All coaches will also have to complete a background check and the Cal Ripken Coaches Certification if they have not already done so.

Sponsors

The Daphne Youth Baseball League is always looking for sponsors to help offset the cost of running the league.  If you, or anyone you know, may be interested in sponsoring the league this season, please reach out to our sponsorship coordinator Tim Weinacht.  We have a variety of sponsor levels available to meet different needs.

Additional Information and Questions

If you need any additional information or have any questions...please reach out to the commissioner of your age group.  A list of all board members can be found on the website under the general info tab.
