LS Youth Baseball offers several summer baseball opportunities:  Bay State Tournament of Champions and The Jimmy Fund Little League Program, as well as Lou Tompkins and Minuteman for older players.

Bay State Tournament of Champions:  is a highly competitive travel league with 3-4 games per week plus practices.  To be eligible for Bay State players must be Little League age 9 –12 (their age on April 30, 2018.)  This is an intense program which requires a high level of commitment from both players and their families.  Bay State players will be expected to take no more than 10 days of vacation from June 18 – August 12. Preferably, no vacation should be planned at all during the last week of June and during the Tournament of Champions, which is the first full week in August. Any player with a travel commitment or vacation plans must make the tryout evaluation team aware of their vacation plans. Vacation plans must be identified on the Bay State registration form.

There are no tryouts for this team and selection will be based on player availability during the summer and the order of receipt of the application forms.
Registration Fee: $250.

Jimmy Fund

Jimmy Fund is a league for those who are interested in playing competitive and fun summer baseball but do not want the commitment of Bay State.  There is no assessment and players are placed on balanced teams. 

Teams play against other LS teams, and against teams from surrounding towns. 

The season will start with a week of practices the week of June 19th.  After the first week, the schedule consists entirely of games, all of which occur on weeknight evenings.  Games start the week of June 24th and run through July 26th

Unlike the LSYB spring season, the minors and majors divisions are inter-grade.  The younger players in a division can improve by playing against older, stronger players.  For the older players in a division, they have an opportunity to be the leaders on their team and set an example for their younger teammates. 

The divisions and schedules are as follows:

Jimmy Fund Farm - Current 1st Graders  One event per week, coach pitch, typically held on Wednesday Nights.

Jimmy Fund Farm – Current 2nd Graders.  Games will be held Monday and Thursday nights.  All games will be at 5:30 or 6:00.

Jimmy Fund Minors - Current 3rd and 4th Graders.  Games will be held Tuesday, Thursday, and alternate Friday evenings.  Most games are at 5:30 or 6:00, but some Featherland games will be at 7:30 under the lights.

Jimmy Fund Majors - Current 5th, 6th and age-eligible 7th Graders.  Games will be held Monday, Wednesday, and alternate Friday evenings.  Most games will be at 5:30 or 6:00.

The majors division will play games on the 50/70 field.  This provides continuity for the players that have played on the 50/70 field in the spring, and provides an introduction to the larger field for the 5th graders.
