SECOND CHANCE TO TRYOUT FOR THE MAJOR LEAGUES
Saturday, September 17th at 4:00 pm at Lorusso Field in Hyannis (behind the Hy East school)
- All 10-12 year olds are welcome, encouraged, and eligible to tryout
- The major league is a competitive league with 12 teams divided into two divisions: Tom Wallace American and National
Here is some of the GREAT reasons to play for the major league:
- Playing time: Rules state that every player must play at least 6 defensive outs and 1 at bat or be the DH. This means that no one rides the pine...
- No one can be the DH twice unless ALL players on the team have been DH once.
- Major Leagues play some games under the lights at Lorusso.
- There are playoffs for the American League and the National League with the chance to win great trophies.
- The chance to be on a team that makes it to the Town Championship!! More trophies!!
- Learn baseball from some great coaches and players.
So if you thought the Major Leagues were not for you, think again! Come and tryout!!
Annual Meeting Date has been changed
Thursday, September 29th at 7:00 pm at the Hyannis Elks
Everyone is welcome to the meeting. New officers will be voted on and the 2012 season will be discussed. Come and meet some of the volunteers that contribute their talents to make youth baseball possible in Barnstable. Do you have ideas you'd like to share? or a skill or talent you think might improve the organization? We won't know unless you come to the meeting! See you there...I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catchers mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back. ~Maya Angelou

Week of 6/5/11 Update
The regular season schedule is winding down this weekend. With only a few games left to play, here is how it looks:
The number one spot is locked up by Rotary Collision with a record of 16 and 4. They have one regular season game left to play against Mass Bay on Saturday the 11th at 3 pm. The number two spot is also a lock by Centerville Dental with a record of 14 and 6. They also have one game left to play on Saturday the 11th at 11 am agains Butler's. East Coast Trophy gets the third spot, win or lose in their last game. A potential tie in standings with Hy-Line is decided by team v team record which gives the spot to EC for defeating Hy-Line in their 3 matchups this season. Close standings for the season though and a great job by all the National Teams.
There are no spots locked up yet. Cape Cod Times at 14 wins and 5 losses, has 2 games remaining vs Advanced Embroidery on Friday at 7pm and John's Collision on Saturday. Wynn and Wynn at 13 wins and 6 losses for the season has 2 games remaining vs Marjon Thursday at 5:30 and Saturday at 9 am vs Play it Again Sports. Marjon also has 2 games remaining with a record so far of 12 wins and 7 losses. These three teams will be battling it out this weekend for spots 1, 2, and 3.
The 10 minors teams, continue their season until the 15th of June. They have a 16 game schedule with no playoffs. It looks like the Rangers will be the regular season top spot holder with the Diamond Backs, Cubs, and Blue Jays tied up right behind them.
The 6 teams that make up the AA league are wrapping up their season this weekend with 3 games to play on Saturday.
Farm - Instructional
