LS Youth Baseball 2023 Summer Baseball
Summer Baseball Plans
LS Youth Baseball's second season creates an opportunity for players of all levels to experience playing summer baseball in a competitive environment with their in-town friends in keeping with LS Youth Baseball's Mission Statement. We offer a variety of options for players of all ages and skill levels. The information below is intended to provide a brief overview of our summer offerings and key dates as you plan your summer. Registration will open in Late April for all summer baseball.
Bay State Baseball (46/60 and 50/70 Foot Diamond)
This is a competitive summer team for committed players at advanced levels on the 60 foot diamond (with the exception of Bay State A). On Saturday June 3, 2023, assessments will be held by independent evaluators at Featherland Park for each grade. Our goal, within each division is to field a single team of 12 players each. It is expected all players that will try out for a Bay State team and be eligible for a Little League tournament team will play and attend 60% of their in-town 2023 spring games as stipulated by Little League Rules. Any exceptions will be handled on case by case basis. Please visit baystateball.com for more information.

Minuteman Baseball will run a Summer Minuteman League for 13 - 16 year olds who have previously played at the Babe Ruth level. This league will be comprised of teams from the same towns as the Minuteman Spring league. It will provide an opportunity for players to participate in a less competitive and more informal level of play than the Lou Tompkins program.
Games will begin mid-June and played on Monday through Thursday nights. The schedule is a 12-14 game schedule (2 games per week). The single elimination playoffs will begin on in early August
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 registration forms.

1. Jimmy Fund Rookie – Current 1st Graders

3. Jimmy Fund Minors - Current 3rd and 4th Graders
