Q. What will the schedule be this year?
A. Tentative schedules are complete, but are subject to change depending on number of players and teams.
Tee ball- Mon/Wed
Coach pitch Tue/Thu
Farm Tues/Sat * additional dates may be added with Holliston
Q. Does my child have to play with his age group?
A. The default placement for an athlete is his or her Little League age. Please see Little League website for age information. In 2019, the MYB Board made an exception to this rule allowing kids to "play down" with their grade as long as it only moves them one calendar year group down. This exception is only for Spring baseball and Summer Tournaments will still strictly adhere to the Little League age guidelines.
Q. Why have fees increased this year?
A. Our fee structure is designed to cover 70-75% of league cost with the remaining fees covered by our fundraising efforts. Our previous fees allowed us to only cover 60% of league costs. Costs that are covered include the following:
-Equipment (helmets, tees, catcher gear, ect)
-Town fees, which include field rentals and additional per player fees
One main reason for the increase is due to the town increasing the rental fees they are charging to MYB. We feel our cost are very far and rank among the lowest fees of surrounding towns, which are 20-30% higher in towns such as Holliston, Bellingham and others.
Q. Where does fundraising money go?
A. Our fundraising income covers many costs.
- Subsidize player fees
- Field improvements such as the dugouts, lights, addition of the bathrooms
- Field maintenance such as, field lines, conditioner on base paths and other field repairs
- Non-player equipment such as, batting tees, pitching machines, L-screens, batting cage nets and baseballs
- Rooney’s improvements, changes in the health and safety code enforcement has required us to undertake major renovations, including a 3-bay sink, a new cooking hood, an ANSIL fire system.
