Brewster Little League

About Brewster Little League

Promoting good sportsmanship and fun for the community of Brewster/Southeast since 1952.

 

Brewster Little League became a chartered member of Little League Baseball Incorporated, in 1952. Then, the entire league consisted of four teams who played their games behind the Garden Street School. In 2012, over 500 boys and girls, ages 5 to 18, played over 200 regular season games utilizing twelve fields at six different locations within the Town of Southeast.

Our local program is made possible by many adult volunteers from within our community. Some are the parents of players and some are not. These volunteers give freely of their time as Board Members, coaches, umpires, division heads, groundskeepers, etc. with one goal in mind, that of making the program a big success.

The general members (parents) of our league annually elect a Board of Directors who provide the administration and decision making of our baseball program. This election is usually held during the month of October. Parents are notified of the actual date via a mailing, as long as their child is registered in the program. Any adult resident who lives within our jurisdiction is eligible to run for a position on the board.

Teams are formed by age group and (or) skill level in March. Play begins in April and continues through the middle of June. Thereafter, select teams play tournament and All Star games in June, July, and August. Opportunities for recreational summer and fall ball are available thru Brewster Little League in the Westchester Putnam Baseball Association (WPBA).

Teams meet two or three times a week after school and on weekends for games and practices. The days and times vary from week to week according to field availability and, of course, weather.

In all age groups, teams are organized and supervised by an adult called a MANAGER. He is helped on the field by an adult called a COACH. The Local Board must unanimously approve candidates to fill these two team positions.

Playing rules are the rules of baseball as modified by Little League International to suit the needs of youngsters. Nine & Ten-year-olds, for example, pitch from 46 feet, rather than 60, and bases are 60 feet apart, rather than 90. The Board may also elect to utilize certain local rules.

Divisions


Baseball Divisions

Brewster Little League became a chartered member of Little League Baseball Incorporated, in 1952. At the time, the entire league consisted of four teams who played their games behind the Garden Street School. We have baseball divisions for children between the ages of 5 to 18 years old.

Boys must reside within the borders of the Town of Southeast, execeptions are made for younger siblings of girls who are already in our program, but may live in a town without a Little League Softball program. Please contact the League President if you have any questions about player eligibility.

To find out your child's "baseball" age, please visit the Little League Age Calculator at Little League International's website.

T-Ball

For 5 and 6-year-olds who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. In T-Ball, players hit off a batting tee. The primary goals of Tee Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork.

Majors Baseball

Majors division games are played on a larger "50/70" field. The field has a 50-foot pitching distance and a 70-foot base paths (the "old" Majors field had as 46-foot pitching distance and 60-foot base paths). Only 11-12 yrs. olds are in this division (Boys Farm is now the Minors and 9 & 10 yrs. old players will be in this division). This is a new Division in Little League, other most competitive travel baseball programs as well as other youth baseball organizations such as Babe Ruth (Cal Ripken) are already playing on fields this size. It will also provide an opportunity for players to transition incrementally from a 46/60 field to the full size 60/90 field used in the Juniors/Seniors divisions.

There is leading, stealing and pick offs in this division.

The number of teams in this division is dependent on number of players registered, the number of players/teams will determine how the draft will be done.

This division is for those players with established skills and experience in playing organized baseball. Players should exhibit strong fundamentals of the game. This level involves advanced competitive play. All 11 and 12-year-olds in the Majors Division are eligible for the All-Star team.
