Summer Ball Registration is Open!

 

 

 

SummerBall is open to players ages 8-12.  8 year-olds play in the Friendship League, and 9-12 will play in the Suburban Youth League.  Games are generally played M-F evenings with the exception of a few Tournaments on weekends.  To be eligible for Summer Ball, players must currently be registered as a player in Spring Ball, without exception.  We will be facing teams from towns such as Medfield, Norwood, Walpole, Canton, and other surrounding towns.  This is a great opportunity to play more baseball, as well as giving your child the opportunity to play other towns at a competitive level.  We will hold evaluations for all in early June.  Players will be split between an A and B teams based on ability.  Please visit our website for full details on our Summer Selection process. 

 

*Westwood will aim to place 1-2 teams into the Friendship League of equal talent. There is no A or B classification for the Friendship League. 

 

Registration will be closing at the end of the day on Tuesday, May 31st. Players will not be able to register or be added to a team after this date, so please take time to register on time. Please visit our website to register.  www.westwoodlittleleague.com  Cost is $150 per player. 

 

 

Please keep in mind, Summer Ball is a commitment. The season starts right after the spring season and runs through July.  As stated, this is much more competitive than Westwood Little League Spring ball.  The spirit of player development remains; however, coaches are challenged to compete.  Playing time may not be equal amongst all players.  Players may be challenged to learn new positions.    

 

At the A level, the expectation is that players will generally make all games during the season.  At the B Level, the understanding is that players should not be missing more than a few games throughout the season.  If you have a family vacation planned, please share those dates with the coaches ahead of the evaluation process.  We make these suggestions because selection for these teams is competitive.  Once on a team, it is imperative that you aim for full participation and communicate unexpected conflicts.  We understand the kids are young and it is summer, however, you are part of a team of families. On unfortunate occasions teams have been short players and it’s difficult for the coaches and families who attended.  If you make the team and plan on being on the Cape for half the summer, then Summer Ball may not be the best fit for you.  

 

We aim to have twelve players on each A and B team, across all age groups. We will do our best to accommodate all players that register, but the reality is, we may not have enough players to form a B team at some levels, or we may have too many B players for one team at other levels. In the event that we have too many B players for one team, players will be selected based on ability, in addition to the other components of the Summer Selection process found on our website.   In the event that your player is not placed on a team, your registration fee will be fully refunded. 

 

 The SummerBall season kicks off with our own tournament--The Reilly Classic.  The Reilly Classic is held at Morrison Park and the adjacent Roche Brothers Field. It is open to players in the 9-,10-,11-, and 12-year-old divisions, with both an A and a B tournament.  As hosts of the tournament, we rely on the parents of players to volunteer for certain roles.  This parent participation is MANDATORY.   We will be playing teams from Walpole, Canton and Medfield, among others.  The dates are as follows: 

 

 

 A Tourney 

June 15th-19th 

 

B Tourney 

June 22rd-26th 

 

Westwood Little League has also committed to entering two tournaments for age groups 9-12.  The Sandwich Tournament for all A Teams in July, and the Braintree Tournament for all B Teams in late July.  Both are competitive and fun tournaments for the kids. 

 

 

More info to come on evaluation dates and team selections, but for now the registration is open!
