  2016 HOLLISTON SUMMER BASEBALL/SOFTBALL
There are several opportunities for Holliston youth and high school baseball and softball players ages 8 and up who want to continue to play baseball when our spring season is over. Registration is now open.  The divisions are as shown in the table below based upon the relevant/current league age structures for 2016 and described in detail below:
 
 
The deadline is Wednesday May 18th. 
 
HOLLISTON SUMMER SOFTBALL 
--Twin-Valley Girls Softball--
Summer softball is a more competitive level of play that begins at the end of our spring season and runs until the end of July with the goal to provide a challenging playing environment and an opportunity to compete against selected town teams. It is a 10 game season, in the Twin Valley Girls Softball League (http://www.eteamz.com/twinvalley/), that includes travel to other towns and exposes the girls to a stronger level of play than they will see during the spring season.
Unlike our spring league, summer softball teams are age appropriate, and are not determined by the grade of the player. We offer 2 levels of play:
  1. U10 – Born between January 2005 and December 2006*. U10s play on Mondays and Wednesdays. Tryouts will be May 12th 6:00-7:00pm and May 22nd 3:00-4:00pm at Holliston High School Softball Field 
    • *We will allow 3rd graders born in 2007 to participate if we do not have enough interest from the 4th and 5th grade group or if we have enough players to field a second team. U10 summer ball uses the hard 11" ball, and safety will be a factor in evaluations. 
  2. U12 - Born between January 2003 and December 2004. U12s play on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tryouts will be May 18th 6:00-7:30pm and May 22nd 4:00-5:30pm at Holliston High School Softball Field 
The summer softball season is a very condensed program - roughly 5 weeks. Each age group will play 2 games per week and have a minimum of 1 practice per week (most likely on Sundays). All games will be in the evening – at or after 6:00pm.
 
The fee for HYBSA’s 2016 girl’s summer softball will be $150. These fees cover the league entrance fee, cost of umpires, shirt, shorts, visor and team equipment.  Click here to register
 
HOLLISTON “LITTLE LEAGUE” SUMMER BASEBALL 
--Tondorf, Sizzler, and Upper Charles (8s-12s)–
 
ASHLAND SUMMER (8s) – Highly competitive tournament for 8-year-olds where teams play to win. Surrounding towns send their highest ranked players interested in introductory tournament ball. There are typically ten regular season games plus playoffs, running from mid-June to late July. For players coming from HYBSA’s Farm League, this will be their first real exposure to player-exclusive pitching and limited stealing. Players are selected based on in-town league performance, assessments, coaches’ recommendations, and their availability based on the tournament schedule. The roster is limited, and we do not have the option to enter additional teams in the tournament.
 
MEDWAY “TONDORF” TOURNAMENT (9s-12s) – Highly competitive “A” tournament where teams play to win. We will be entering one 9 year-old team, one 10 year-old team, one 11 year-old team and one 12 year-old team. The typical ten game schedule starts in mid-June and ends in late July. Players are selected based on in-town league performance, tryouts, coach’s recommendations, and their availability based on the tournament schedule.
 
HOPKINTON “SIZZLER” TOURNAMENT (9s-12s) – Competitive “B” tournament where teams play to win. Based upon forecasts, we anticipate entering one 9 year-old team, one 10 year-old team, and likely one 11/12 year-old team. Typical ten game schedule starts at mid-June and ends in late July. Players are selected based on in town league performance, tryouts, coach’s recommendations and their availability based on the tournament schedule.
 
UPPER CHARLES YOUTH LEAGUE (9s-12s) – This is an opportunity for summer baseball in a “C” league. Depending upon final registration results, we anticipate entering one team composed of 9/10 year-olds. The schedule is six weeks beginning in mid-June and running through late July. There are no weekend games and no playoffs. Players are selected based on in-town league performance, tryouts, and coach’s recommendations.
 
The fee for HYBSA’s 2016 summer little league baseball will be $150. These fees cover the league entrance fee, cost of umpires, shirt, hat and team equipment. Players are required to purchase white baseball pants and a belt.
Small Diamond Tryouts (8s-12s) are planned for Sunday May 22nd, 2016 at Flagg Field – More information on exact times will be available as the date approaches.

The season will start the first week of June and run through the end of July.

TRI-VALLEY BASEBALL (13s-16s): Tri-Valley Baseball (http://www.eteamz.com/tvb/) is a youth summer baseball league based on the philosophy that everyone should be encouraged and given the opportunity to play. Comprised of Ashland, Bellingham, Holliston, Hopedale, Medfield-Millis, and Medway, the Tri-Valley Baseball League has no-cuts, minimum playing time rules, and requiring each town to enter evenly balanced teams. The season usually starts the first weekend of June and typically runs through mid-July ending with a championship playoff series. The League operates two separate divisions: a Minors Division made up of 13 year olds that play Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and a Majors Division made up of 13-16 year olds, playing Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. There will be no separate tryouts for the Tri-Valley Division. Teams are evenly distributed based upon spring coaches’ evaluations.
 
The fee for HYBSA’s 2016 summer Big Diamond Baseball (Tri-Valley Minors, Tri-Valley Majors and Sr. Babe Ruth), will be $175. These fees cover the league entrance fee, cost of umpires, shirt, hat and team equipment. Players are required to purchase white baseball pants and a belt.
