Fall Ball Registration is Open!
Registration is now open for Brighton Little League’s -
2015 Fall Ball season
 
Fall ball is a six week season with games played on Saturday’s and an occasional Sunday if needed. There are no playoffs so games are a little more relaxed giving players a chance to try a different position that they might not have gotten much chance to play in the spring.
If you are interested in coaching, please indicate that on your registration.
 
Below are some of the details about the 6 week Fall Ball season:

Games will be played on Saturday Sept 5, 12, 19, 26; October 10, 17.
October 3rd is not a scheduled game due to the Yom Kippur observance. It may be necessary to schedule a makeup game on that date.

We allow players from other Little League towns that don't have a fall league to play in our league.
Cost is just $70 if you sign up by Aug 23rd, $85 if you sign up on or after Aug 24th.
Family Maximum amount for registering multiple children is $160.
 
Leagues/Age groups are as follows.
Click your choice to register.

(Grades are for the 2015-2016 school year)

If you have any questions as to age eligibility or requirements, please contact the listed league President & we will be happy to review your particular situation or question. Our aim is to always provide an opening, & a positive experience for as many kids as possible. ​

Bat Regulations and Sizing Guide

It is that time of the year when we start buying new baseball equipment for the up coming season.  As our young players grow, the equipment becomes too small.  Cleats, gloves, and bats all become too small.  Some of this equipments can be major investments, for what may only useful for one season. 

Today, a bat can be a major investment.  There is a bat on the market today which is being sold for $549.  That bat is not for 100% of our younger players.  When considering which bat to buy, you need to think about how serious your son or daughter is about the sport, at what level of play will your player participate, and what are your families resources.  Just because a bat is not $250 or more, doesn't mean it is not a good bat, and a $50 bat swung correctly, is better than one that costs a paycheck but is too heavy or long, even if it does have the coolest graphics.  

Little League has set certain standards and rules for bats based on age group.  All composite bats need to be approved by Little League to be legal in our program.  A list of current Little League approved composite bats can be seen here

 

Buying a bat of the appropriate size can be difficult, but the following chart helps simplify the process.

2015 Spring Registration
Registration will close after Sunday March 29 except
SIP, Jr & Sr Baseball which will close after April 5.
All registrations after those dates will be placed on wait list status,

Another great year is planned for youth baseball in Brighton, and you don’t want to miss out on the fun! The tables below will direct you to the correct registration form for your age group. Eligible players must live or attend school (public or private) in the Town of Brighton. Click here for more detail about each age group.
 
A dedicated group of volunteers is already in the planning stages for next season, with Opening Day already scheduled for Saturday, 5/2/2015.
 
Once your player is registered for the season, you will be able to take advantage of Saturday indoor practice time and clinics at Turf Time beginning January 17th from 9AM-noon for the following age groups:
 
SIP: 9-10am
Rookies: 10-11am

A limited number of need based scholarships are available for the 2015 season. Please contact Chris Stodgell for information


Please consider volunteering to coach
It is never too late to start coaching; as the kids advance they need to be exposed to the leadership and confidence building aspects of coaching along with specific skills and positive role models.
 
New this year, we are planning a couple of coaching clinics.  If you are new to coaching, or an experienced coach, come listen to Jason Wasserman, Brighon High Schools Varsity Coach about what we should expect of our young players, and how to coach the skills our players need.
 
Brighton Baseball is always open to new members and the contributions of new perspectives. You may volunteer to help coach when you fill our your child's registration below. You'll also need to fill out a volunteer application to coach. Click below and email it to Chris Stodgell at chris.stodgell@gmail.com, or mail it to

Field of Memories
“Field Of Memories”

Remembering those who were so important to Brighton Little League
 
Brighton Little League is an organization that creates great opportunities for the kids in our community.  Brighton Little League has always been led by great volunteers, sponsors, and benefactors.

The Field Of Memories site allows parents, coaches and former players to remember those who have passed, and were so important to youth baseball and softball in Brighton.
 
The leaders of Brighton Baseball encourage everyone to take a moment and read about some of the individuals who led by example and were so supportive of the kids in our community.
