2016 Spring Registration
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, April 30th.
 
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 Jan through April from 9AM-noon for the following age groups (please note: times may be modified closer to the start of the winter sessions:
 
Minors and Older: 8:30-9:30 am
SIP: 9:30-10:45 am
Rookies: 10:45-noon.
 
So, don't miss out on this great opportunity to hone your skills for this Spring!
 
A limited number of need based scholarships are available for the 2016 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 , or mail it to

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.
