A supervised program of instruction on the fundamentals of Little League baseball. Participants are taught basic baseball skills such as hitting, throwing, catching and base running. Games and team practices are held throughout the season.
We're pleased to announce our plans for Fall Baseball. Somerville will be fielding Majors and Minors teams in the Minuteman Baseball League (MBL). We're also offering opportunities for younger kids to play -- details below. The Fall Season will run from Sept. 11 until Oct. 30.
The Majors Division is for players who will be 11 or 12 years old on or before April 30, 2017. Games will be held on Sundays (times TBD) with practices likely on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
The Minors Division is for players who will be 9 or 10 years old on or before April 30, 2017. (At the Little League board's discretion, we may give 10-year-olds the option to play on the Majors team.) Games will be held on Sundays (times TBD) with practices likely on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
We're still determining details for younger players. The MBL's Farm Division is for players who will be 7 or 8 years old on or before April 30, 2017. Depending on interest level in the league's towns and in Somerville, we'll try to field a Farm team (games on Sundays). If we don't field an official team, we'll have in-town skills sessions instead (probably on Saturdays).
The fee across all age levels is $65. Each player will receive a hat and shirt.
