2017 Local League Changes

The Waltham Youth Baseball volunteer board of directors made several changes for the upcoming 2017 spring season. These changes will impact nearly all players in our league. In the interests of focusing on developing baseball skills and teamwork for our younger players, while increasing the competitive level for our older players, we've changed the age ranges for all four of our divisions. We believe this will have a long-term, positive impact.

 

1. The Majors will now include all 10, 11, and 12 year olds. This increases the amount of teams in the majors and will allow us to have better competition with two divisions. All teams will be re-drafted in March 2017. There is a possibility your player will be on a different team than they were in 2016. The draft will be balanced so all teams have an equal amount of 10s, 11s, and 12s. We expect 96 major players next season and Mike Destefano will continue as the major director.

 

2. The Minor division will include only 8 and 9 year olds. This division will remain competitive, with playoffs, and potentially be organized into two divisions. We will also re-draft because of the increase in number of teams. We expect 100 returning players and expect to have 9-10 minor teams. Brian Noel will now serve as the minor director after having served as rookie director in 2016.

 

3. The Rookie division will include only 6 and 7 year olds. This division will focus on instructional baseball and each team will have 1-2 scheduled games and 1 scheduled practice per week. The first half of the season will utilize a pitching machine for games to promote hitting skills. On June 1, after coaches have had time to develop pitchers during practices, we will be change over to players beginning to pitch. Rick Burke will serve as rookie director after three years as teeball director. Should you have any questions regarding rookie changes, please contact Rick at rickburke91@gmail.com.

 

4. Teeball has been changed to include only 4 and 5 year olds and will be purely instructional on Saturday mornings. This is a player's introduction to organized baseball and we will focus on familiarity with the field and game, and having fun.

 

While these changes are significant, we believe they are in the best interests of our players, and their enjoyment of playing baseball. The 2017 schedule will also be developed so you play on regular days of the week. The 2017 elected league officers will be:

 

Bill Hanley, President

Pat Hart, Vice President

Sean George, Treasurer

Erick Bardsley, Safety Officer

Mike Destefano, Major Director

Brian Noel, Minor Director

Rick Burke, Rookie Director

Mark Felt, Sponsors Director

Dianna MacGlashing, Concessions Coordinator

AJ Crane, Fields & Facilities Director

Justin Ehlert. LLWS/Tournament Director

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Online registration is now open at http://www.walthamyouthbaseball.com/ and 2017 baseball will be here before you know it.

 

Play ball!
