Announcements

Here's What's New!

 

OPEN MEETING

Wednesday September 6th

at the Barnstable Police Station

Starting at 6PM

The board will be hosting a meeting to figure out the future of the league. The program needs many more volunteers to get involved because the board has been shorthanded for years and is facing a big turnover shortly due to families aging out. Things won’t be possible next season unless we get a strong group of dedicated individuals ready to do what they can to make sure the kids in town have a league to learn the great game of baseball like there has been since 1952! We are seeking help in many aspects of the board. 


IMPORTANT INFO FOR 2018 SEASON

Hello Barnstable Little League Families,  
 
The board is going through a transition period this off-season with new leadership coming in shortly which will need your help to make it a success. These are your kids, your friends, your neighbors and we are currently looking for motivated individuals to get involved in all aspects of the league to keep it strong for all the kids in town that want to play baseball so please reach out if interested. On that note there will be no fall ball this year because we have no-one to run it or coach the teams which is necessary so we apologize for any inconveniences. The town recreation dept. may run something for the younger kids and we’ll pass on that information when it becomes available or check their website.
 
With the reconfiguration of the little league baseball age chart having 16 months of kids representing the 12 year old age group it has caused a dilemma with our towns baseball program. The Board members and President of BLL have thought long and hard on the best options for next year. With the influx of 12 year olds that will be playing in our league next year,  it has forced the board members to come to the decision of a league wide redraft for the majors division. The decision to redraft was made to try and keep the parity throughout the league and was recommended by our district representative so that is the path we are taking. This will create a playing atmosphere that is healthy and competitive for every child.  What this means: Each child will have to attend a tryout if they wish to participate in next year’s season.  There is a chance your child will be selected to a different team than they currently play for which we understand may cause a few issues but at the end of the day all the kids will still be playing baseball which is all that matters. 
 
Typically 96 children play in our 8 team league . The age chart change has resulted in the possibility of 60-64 twelve year olds playing in majors next season. That will leave a possible 32 spots for all eleven & ten year olds and all players currently on a majors roster are guaranteed a spot. Again this is not a decision we took lightly but the board feels it's best for the overall league so get back to us with any questions or issues.

Thanks,

Joe Scott
BLL President
