Eligibility: Spring In-Town baseball is open to all boys and girls currently enrolled in 1st grade up to the official "little league age" of 16 (any player who turns 16 years old on or after May 1st).
Divisions: The LBA has 4 In-Town divisions. Division ages and grades are subject to change based on registration enrollment and players' abilities.
A Division: 1st and 2nd graders play on a 60-foot diamond. Pitching machine is used. All youngsters will have the opportunity to experience many fielding positions over the course of the season and the emphasis will be on the development of fundamental baseball skills and sportsmanship. Teams will play one to two games per week and practice once during the week. Scores will be kept but not team standings. There will be an end of season tournament.
AA Division: 3rd and 4th graders play on a 60-foot diamond. Live arm pitching will be utilized. Standings will be kept and playoffs will be held to determine a champion. Typical schedule is two games, including one on Saturday, and one practice per week.
Majors Division: 5th, 6th, and some 7th graders (who turn 12 years old on or after May) play on a 70-foot diamond. Standings will be kept and playoffs will be held to determine a champion. Typical schedule is two games, including one on Saturday, and one practice per week.
Pony League: 13 to 15 year olds (including 7th graders who turn 13 years old before May 1). Play on a 90-foot diamond. Games will be scheduled on the weekends. Pony League teamswill play in a league that is compatible with the team's level of play. We will play not only all Lewisboro teams, but teams from neighboring towns. All games are played on Saturdays and Sundays, so there will be NO conflicts with Modified games. There may be conflicts between JV1 and/or JV2 games and our Spring Junior or Senior leagues. JJHS Varsity players may not be eligible.
Registration & Fee:
The early registration fee for 2019 is $225.00 per individual registrant. After early registration, the registration fee is $250.00. Any registration received after teams are announced will be subject to a waiting list and may not be placed on a team until after Opening Day.
Evaluations for all 1st through 5th graders will be scheduled in February or March.
Teams are announced by early April to allow for some indoor and/or outdoor practice time before Opening Day. Regular season play will begin on opening day and soon after for all teams, ending with the Division Championship Games and awards ceremony by mid-June. Weekday practices will be scheduled subject to field availability. Game schedules will be posted to the LBA web site by Opening Day.
Uniforms & Equipment:
All players will receive a team jersey and hat. Additionally, we will continue to provide a heart guard for all players in their first year with the LBA. If returning players need a larger-sized heart-guard (mandatory this season on the 60 & 70 foot diamonds) we will make them available for purchase at a reduced price. All players must provide their own baseball footwear (no metal cleats), baseball glove, helmet, bat, athletic supporter and protective cup. The LBA provides all teams with baseballs, first aid kits, catcher’s mitts and catcher’s equipment.
Note: We urge all players & parents to carefully read the Codes of Conduct before completing online registration, since we introduced some important additions involving player & parent behavior. Also, parents are urged to provide updated and accurate medical information including Doctor, contact, insurance and most importantly, ANY medical conditions or allergies that we will need to be aware of in the event of an emergency.
