2008 Spring Season, 13-15 Year Old League
The positives of combining the three age groups are we are able to have at least 6 in-house teams of 12-13 players per team. A 10 to 12 game schedule with a playoff season is being planned. There will be no out of town play unless a player is chosen to play on a summer travel team.
We recognize that the 13 year olds need to adjust to several new aspects of baseball they had not experienced before. This includes learning how as a runner to take a lead off a base, as a pitcher what constitutes a balk, and as a batter and catcher what may happen when a 3rd strike is dropped in different circumstances to name just a few. If necessary, we will work with the coaches to establish additional ground rules while the 13’s adjust to the full diamond.
We will give all 6 teams’ equal strength of players throughout the season.
It should be an exciting season, one that we anticipate the players will enjoy with their friends and classmates, while experiencing and learning the game on the big diamond. We know that all of you will be supportive of the players, coaches and umpires and we appreciate your positive conduct at the games
