2018 ASSESSMENTS 02/19/2018 Hello everyone,
This is just a friendly reminder that registration...
This is just a friendly reminder that registration closes for all intermediate and major age players on Thursday February 22nd. All players LEAGUE AGES 9-12 that didn’t play in the majors last year must attend a mandatory assessment on Sunday February 25th.
The assessment will be used to help draft players to fill major’s rosters and to help us balance the teams in the Intermediate level. The assessments will be held at ATI (Athlete Training Institute) 14 Alcap Ridge Cromwell. The facility is located in the rear of the building.
All player are asked to attend ½ hour before their assigned times. Players should bring their own helmet, glove and bat. Last year’s bats will be allowed to be used only during this assessment.
Parents will NOT be allowed in the area during the assessment. A parent meeting will be held in the lounge during this time. Please sign in upon arrival and have the player fitted for uniforms prior to the assessment. Sample uniforms will be provided for sizing.
Any player that does not attend assessments will not be allowed to play in the majors or “called up” this season.
Player ages - 11 & 12 will be held at 10am. Please arrive no later than 9:30am
Player age - 10 will be held at 10:30am. Please arrive no later than 10:00am
Player ages – 8 & 9 will be held at 11:00am. Please arrive no later than 10:30am
Babe Ruth Registration is now open via the NLL website! The cost for participation is $280, but does not need to be paid at the time of registration. Registration fees will be collected at the first practice/player evaluation after the High School roster is determined and players have committed to playing.
NEW THIS SEASON: 16 year olds will be allowed to play in the spring season of Babe Ruth. Our district is committed to keeping kids playing baseball as long as possible, so weather they played Babe Ruth last year as a 15 year old, played High School baseball last year and either have decided to participate in another High School sport, don't make the team, or would just prefer to play recreational baseball, they now have the option to participate. Many of the other towns we compete against have boys who participate in other High School sports but continue to play Babe Ruth baseball. It would be great to see Newington kids do this as well, so if your son still enjoys playing baseball please encourage him to play this season.
WE NEED COACHES: Year after year we struggle to get volunteers to coach. Typically we have no more than 3 teams in Babe Ruth, yet getting volunteers to coach is still a struggle. If you are interested in being a manager or an assistant please reach out. We will be offering a registration discount to players of managers and assistant coaches to help encourage participation.
Winter Hitting: We will be having Winter hitting at 860-Baseball (formerly Baseball City in Hartford). Hitting will begin Wednesday 2/7/18 and be held 6pm-7pm each subsequent Wednesday through the end of March. Players NEED to be registered in order to participate. Cost will be $5 per week (pay only for the sessions you attend). Space is limited to 20 players per week and will be on a first come first serve basis. Please email Dan Beaupre at
to reserve your spot each week or for any questions regarding this upcoming season.
