Let’s PLAY BALL!

 

Which league will my child play in?

Typically, children are slotted into grade-based leagues in accordance to their current grade level. Pre-K is for children who will start kindergarten in the upcoming fall.

 

When do practices start?

Preseason practices are scheduled by the league and assigned to teams based on field availability. Weather permitting, each team will get four (4) preseason practices before Opening Day starting in late March or early April. K and Pre-K teams typically have an extra week of practice before games begin.

 

What uniform/equipment do I need to buy?

The league provides each player with a shirt, hat and socks. Coaches also receive an equipment bag with balls, helmets, and bats along with tees and catcher’s equipment (where applicable). Families must provide baseball pants and a glove. Families can also provide their own bats, helmets and catcher’s equipment if they choose to do so.

 

How are teams selected?

For Pre-K and K, teams are assigned by the commissioner. For all other leagues, players are evaluated during January and February and are entered into a league’s draft. Click link here for dates, times and locations. Each head coach then selects his or her team based on personal history and evaluation results.

 

When is Opening Day?

Opening Day for 2020 is Saturday, April 18.

 

What is Opening Day?

Opening Day is a day-long celebration of the start of the baseball season at Billericay Park. Players and coaches assemble for a parade, team pictures and a festival featuring local sponsors and businesses. K and Pre-K players run the bases while other age divisions play their first games.

 

When do games start and how many per week?

Beginning on Opening Day, teams typically play two games per week unless there are rescheduled rainouts. Most – if not all – teams play on Saturdays with another game midweek.

 

How many practices are there each week?

Once the season begins, each head coach sets his or her own practice schedule. For younger ages, there typically is not more than one practice per week. For K and Pre-K, some coaches will arrive 30 to 45 minutes early to each game to hold a quick practice before the game begins.

 

When does the season typically end?

Weather permitting, all leagues are targeted to end before the July 4 holiday with any postseason tournaments and all-star games wrapping up that week.
