 2017 Summer Baseball/Softball Registration is open Click here to Register.  

...the deadline is next Wednesday, May 31st

Please note: In some cases, you will have two options, one for Baseball and one for Softball. Please be sure to select the option that applies to your son or daughter.  

There are several opportunities for Holliston youth and high school baseball and softball players ages 8 and up who want to continue to play ball when our spring season is over. The divisions are as shown in the table below based upon the relevant/current league age structures for 2017 and described in detail below. 


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 two levels of play:

  • U10 – Born between January 2006 and December 2007*. U10s play on Mondays and Wednesdays.
    • Tryouts will be May 18th 6:00-7:00pm and May 21st 2:00-3:00pm at Damigella 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.
  • U12 - Born between January 2004 and December 2005. 
    • U12s play on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 
    • Tryouts will be May 18th 6:00-7:30pm and May 21st 3:00-4:30pm at Damigella 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 2017 girl’s summer softball will be $150. These fees cover the league entrance fee, cost of umpires, shirt, shorts, visor and team equipment.

 Any questions please contact HYBSA’s Summer Softball Director, Tom Kampersal (tkampersal@gmail.com

HOLLISTON “LITTLE LEAGUE” SUMMER BASEBALL 
--Tondorf, Sizzler, and Upper Charles (8s-12s)–
  • ASHLAND SUMMER “SPARKLER” TOURNAMENT (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 and possibly one 11/12 team. 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 2017 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 baseball pants and a belt.

Small Diamond Tryouts (8s-12s) are planned for Sunday June 4th, 2017 at Flagg Field.

  • SR. BABE RUTH (15s-18s): Sr. Babe Ruth League is a 15-18 “select” team with tryouts and possible cuts with no minimum playing time guaranteed. The league includes Bellingham, Framingham, Franklin, Holliston, Marlboro, Maynard, Medway, Milford, Natick, Sudbury, and Westboro. The season will start the first week of June and run through the end of July. 
  • TRI-VALLEY BASEBALL (13s-16s): Tri-Valley Baseball 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 2017 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.
