For 2017, the following registration categories are available:
 
Baseball (age is determined by your child's age as of April 30, 2017):
  • Babe Ruth/International- 13-16 year-old baseball. Two divisions based on skill.
  • Cal Ripken- 10-12 year-old baseball. Two divisions based on skill.
  • Junior Farm- 8-9 year-old baseball. Likely will be two divisions based on demographics and skill. 
  • Instructional- 5-7 year-old baseball. Predominantly for 6 & 7 year-olds. 5 year-ols will be accepted if they are attending a kindergarten, have played at least one year of t-ball, and are recommended by a coach for promotion. 
  • T-Ball- 3-5 year-old boys and girls. NEW FOR 2017!! We are excited to announce that we will be assuming the operation of a city wide t-ball program to promote baseball and softball in the city and fill the void being left by the dissolution of Wollaston, Hough's Neck, and Squantum t-ball programs! 
Softball (age is determined by your child's birth year):
  • Girls Softball- 9-16 year old softball (birth years 2000-2007). We will create softball leagues based on enrollment, age, and demographics to make sure all girls are paired up in age and skill appropriate programs. We feel this allows us more flexibility to create an attractive offering than the approach in past years of building the leagues BEFORE we have the registration information. 
  • Abigail Adams- 6-8 year-old softball (birth years 2008-2010). 
We have also added the opportunity to buy your child their own helmet for $25 at the time of registration. This is not mandatory, but we are finding the individual helmet purchase program to be both popular and a good fundraiser for the league.
 
Finally, we will be offering our annual indoor spring training program along with increased softball skills clinics over the winter. Please stay tuned for more details.
 
If you have questions about specific leagues, PLEASE contact the appropriate league director as listed on the QYBSL Board of Directors web page.
 
If you have generic registration questions, please forward them by email to: quincybaseballsoftball@gmail.com.
 
We have some additional exciting changes coming to our baseball and softball programs for the upcoming season that will be announced in the next few months!
 
In the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving and get those registrations early to save yourself some money for holiday shopping!!!
 
Thanks,
QYBSL Board

Quarry Night Lights Project Announcement

LET THERE BE LIGHTS!!!!

QYBSL is thirlled to announce the kickoff of:

"Quarry Night Lights"

QYBSL is thrilled to announce that we are launching a massive fundraising campaign called "Quarry Night Lights" to bring night baseball to Quarry Hills by installing lights on the playing fields!!!! In June 2015, we approached the City of Quincy with a concept. After some hard work with the Parks Department and an initial environmental study, we entered a partnership with the City of Quincy to move forward and pursue the project. This project will bring regular night baseball to Quincy players aged 8-12 for the first time in the history of our league. It will also allow us to showcase our great city to surrounding communities by improving the quality of tournament baseball we can host. Finally, lighting Quarry Hills will provide our kids with the same opportunities as the youth in nearby towns and will bring positive night time summer activity to the Quarry Hills area.

We're very grateful to Mayor Koch for his willingness to work together to improve the opportunities for our youth. Mayor Koch has been an unwavering supporter of our league and a champion for our kids for many years. We would also like to thank Chris Cassani and the Parks and Recreation Department for their support and for their hard work in getting a feasibility study completed and a manageable proposal put together. Finally, we have to thank the Quincy Community Preservation Committee for their unanimous support of our proposal.

While this is an incredible development for our league, we are now faced with the hard part.

We need to get to work and raise our portion of the cost!

We have developed a capital improvement plan that will address improvements not only at Quarry, but some long needed upgrades at few other locations for both baseball and softball. Every player in our league will see some benefit from this campaign.

Our fund raising goal is substantial, however we are already over 30% of the way there before formally kicking off the campaign!!

This is no small feat, but we are determined and believe we can make this happen THIS SEASON, BUT WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

We have a short window and many dollars to raise!!

This is an all hands on deck proposition!!

Ultimately, we would like to avoid raising these funds on the backs of our loyal families. We pride ourselves on being one of the most affordable baseball and softball leagues in the region, despite being one of the largest. As such, our fundraising plan is four fold.

 

  • Phase 1: Large Corporate Outreach: We have already reached out to several large local corporations to see if any are interested in becoming keynote sponsors through large donations. These efforts have already seen some promising returns and we are encouraged that they will continue to do so. 
  • Phase 2: Small Corporate Outreach: Over the next two weeks, we will be reaching out to as many smaller local businesses as we can to invite them to be part of this project. You may have heard that "a little bit in abundance is a lot". If you own a business or work for a business that you believe would be interested in helping us out, please contact us and let us know!! 
  • Phase 3: Grassroots efforts: We will need to raise whatever funds we cannot raise through corporate donations by using multiple grassroots efforts. We have several fun community fundraising events already in the works and you'll be hearing about them soon! 
  • Phase 4: Earn It!!: Finally, we will be asking each of our teams that play at Quarry Hills to raise $500 each through any method they choose. With 11 or 12 kids per team, it's a modest amount, but it helps us become closer with the community. We will encourage teams to be creative. We will work with coaches and teams to help with ideas if they are struggling. It could be obtaining a pledge from a local business for cleaning up a property or public area to choosing to sell calendars, 50/50 raffles, or candy bars. We feel there is a real value in allowing our kids to earn some of their opportunities. Every team that meets their $500 goal will have the opportunity to play under the lights!! 
If you have an idea for teams or would like to help coordinate the team fundraising program, please let us know.
This will require the entire QYBSL village. Please consider supporting us. As a 501-3-c registered non-profit, all donations made to QYBSL are tax deductible. Right now, we simply need to get the word out! If you need more information or you'd like a donor package for a local business, please just ask. We'll supply it forthwith!
 
If you'd like to make a donation directly, they can be sent to:
Quincy Youth Baseball and Softball
Attn: Quarry Night Lights
101 Butler Road
Quincy, MA 02169
 
We will also be registering a GoFundMe page shortly. We will be sure to share that as soon as it is live!
Progress on the campaign will be regualrly updated on our facebook page.
We are also on Twitter (@QYBaseball).
 
These are exciting times for us. We can only imagine how excited the kids will be! Please join the effort and be part of it!
Thank you in advance,
Board of Directors
Quincy Youth Baseball & Softball
