Rookies Division Baseball - Fall 2018

All T-ball and Rookie players who plan on playing at the Rookie level in Spring 2019 are invited to join us in a developmental "step-up" league this Fall. Emphasis will be on fun and skill development. Real games will be on the weekends against surrounding towns, including Bolton and Lancaster. Mostly coach pitching with some kid pitching (if appropriate). Times and days to be finalized after registration closes. 

The deadline for registration is August 15 to allow for uniforms to be ordered prior to the start of the season.  The cost of the fall season is $120 per player.

Minors Division Baseball - Fall 2018

Players 9 and 10 years of age as of April 30th, 2019.  Although, skill-eligible 8 year olds will also be allowed to play.  Particularly for kids moving up to the Minors in Spring 2019, this program will be a great introduction into Minors game play and honing the skills needed for the next level of play.  

The Fall session will be a 6-week developmental program focusing on skill development over pure game.  Run by Darren Magan from the AAU Brigade Baseball program, this session will be conducted jointly with players from both Littleton and Harvard.

Players will assemble once a week for 2 hours on Sundays starting the week of 9/9/18 concluding the week of 10/21/18, with no activities over Columbus Day weekend.  Time will either be at 11 AM or 1 PM, so as not to conflict with the Patriots schedule.  Location will alternate between Couper Field in Littleton and Ryan Land Fields in Harvard.

Each week will consist of two phases: The first phase will be station-based practices (infield, outfield, base-running, pitching and catching) with the second phase being a shortened combined scrimmage.

Additionally, Brigade Baseball will be offering an optional hitting night once per week at their batting cages at the All Star Sports Facility in Marlborough (likely Monday nights from 6-7 PM).

The deadline for registration is August 15 to allow for uniforms to be ordered prior to the start of the season.  The cost of the fall season is $120 per player.

  

Majors Division Baseball - Fall 2018

Players 11 and 12  years of age as of April 30th, 2019.  Particularly for kids moving up to the Majors or moving from Majors 60 to Majors 70 in Spring 2019, this program will be a great introduction into more competitive play as well as introduce the additional rules that are introduced in Majors 70 (leading, holding runners on, etc). 

The Fall session will be 6 weeks of sandlot-style games conducted jointly with players from both Littleton and Harvard.  Players will assemble once a week on Sundays starting the week of 9/9/18 concluding the week of 10/21/18, with no activities over Columbus Day weekend.  Time will either be at 11 AM or 1 PM, so as not to conflict with the Patriots schedule.  Location will alternate between Shaker Lane Field in Littleton and Ryan Land Fields in Harvard.  The first three games will be played at the Majors 60 distance (46/60) with the Majors 60 rules, and the last three games will be played at the Majors 70 distance (50/70) with the Majors 70 rules. 

In addtion to the weekend games, we will hold an optional station-based group practices for all players in the league every Wednesdaynight from 5:30 - 7:00 PM.  These practcies will be run by Darren Magan from the AAU Brigade Baseball program with the assistance of both Littleton and Harvard town coaches.  Location will also alternate between Shaker Lane Field and Ryan Land Field.  

Finally, Brigade Baseball will be offering an optional hitting night once per week at their batting cages at the All Star Sports Facility in Marlborough (likely Monday nights from 6-7 PM).  

The deadline for registration is August 15 to allow for uniforms to be ordered prior to the start of the season.  The cost of the fall season is $120 per player.

 

Babe Ruth Division Baseball - Fall 2018

Players 13 - 15  years of age as of April 30th, 2019. Particularly for kids moving up to Babe Ruth/Middle School baseball in the Spring , this program will be a great introduction into more competitive play as well as enable the players to gain valuable experience on the big diamond.

We will be forming a joint team (or two depending on number of registrations) with Littleton and enter the team(s) into the Westford Fall League.  Games are typically held on Sunday afternoons, with the season starting on 9/9/18 and concluding on 10/21/18.  A mini 1-day playoff will be conducted on the final weekend of the season, with a league-wide pizza party to follow.  All games will be 6 innings. 

In addtion to the weekend games, we will hold an optional station-based group practices for all players in the league weekly from 5:30 - 7:00 PM (the specific night to be announced soon).  Location will alternate between Shaker Lane Field and Ryan Land Field.  

Finally, we are still working with Brigade Baseball to offer an optional hitting night once per week at their batting cages at the All Star Sports Facility in Marlborough and additional information on that will be available shortly. 

The deadline for registration is August 15 to allow for uniforms to be ordered prior to the start of the season.  The cost of the fall season is $150 per player.
