Spring 2020 Season -- Online Registration

Divisions

In the Spring season, ABYB runs the following divisions:

  • T-Ball, for Kindergarten-aged players and pre-K players meeting a minimum age requirement
  • Minor C, for first-grade players
  • Minor B, for second-grade and some third-grade players
  • Minor A, for some third-grade, all fourth-grade, and some fifth-grade players
  • Majors, for some fifth-grade, all sixth-grade (unless they turn 13 before 9/1)
  • Babe Ruth 13-15's, for players aged 13 to 15 (two 16-yr-olds will be allowed per team, however they may not be playing High School or AAU baseball and will have significant pitching limitations)
  • If offered by the Minuteman League, there is the possibility of a Babe Ruth 13’s-only division, strictly for players aged 13 moving to the big diamond for the first time.  (This depends on registration numbers across the participating towns)

 

The following age-based exceptions are based on ABYB and Little League Rules.  This applies to the Spring 2020 season.

  • Players must be born on or before 8/31/2015.
  • The oldest date of birth for Majors is 9/1/2007 (independent of grade).
  • 6th grade players who turn 13 before 9/1/2007 can register for Babe Ruth (90-foot diamond).
  • The oldest date of birth for the 13-15's Babe Ruth division is technically 5/1/2004, however each team is allowed up to two players who are 16 as long as they were born on or after 5/1/2003.  Those 16-year-old players with a birthday between 5/1/2003 and 4/30/2004 have significant restrictions on pitching eligibility.

Spring 2020 9U, 10U, 11U Travel Team Tryouts

This registration program is used for players wishing to try out for ABYB's 9U, 10U, or 11U Spring Travel Baseball Teams. ABYB requires registration and the associated liability waiver before participating in programs through ABYB. The player fee for this team is $300. Payment will be required only if the player is selected for the team following tryouts, which are tentatively scheduled for the week of February 10th. The 9U, 10U and 11U travel teams' schedules will augment the number of games played in our local league. The travel league will include teams from Concord, Stoneham, Bedford, etc., so some travel is required for away games. All players born May 1, 2008 - May 1, 2011 are invited to try out for these teams. Players MUST be registered for the 2019 ABYB spring season to qualify for these tryouts. ABYB spring season registration will open in early-January. These travel games ARE NOT a replacement for local games. All players on the travel teams are required to play on their ABYB local team as well.
