Giants are the Babe Ruth Champions!

Giants Take Back-and Forth Duel

 

This one was a game for the ages! Great pitching from both the White Sox and Giants, but the bats showed up as well. White knuckle all the way, as the White Sox jumped out to an early lead, Giants evened it back up, White Sox jumped ahead late, but the Giants kept fighting and mustered just enough offense to finish with the lead. 12-10, Giants, was the final.

 

Congratulations to Bruce and Jerry, and especially the players for both teams.

Fall Softball Signups Open Now!

 

We offer fall softball programs for 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U (note that our travel programs are age based, and not grade based).

This fall we expect to have teams in both the Charles River and Metrowest Leagues.  The competitive Charles River League plays doubleheaders on Sunday mornings from mid-September until the end of October for 10U, 12U and 14U.  The 18U teams plays 1 9 inning game on Sunday mornings.

The Metrowest League plays most games on Saturday afternoons or Sunday afternoons, also in September and October.  All games will have ASA umpires.  Practices for each team will be scheduled at each coach's discretion.

Teams will be selected based on spring tryout data and coaches' input.  If we have enough players sign up and register for fall softball, we will have more than one team at each level.  If not enough players sign up or register, then all registered players may not be placed on teams.

The registration links are as follows:

U10-U14:

U18:

http://assn.la/Reg/?r=4:126565

Additionally, anyone who signs up or registers prior to August 15th will receive a Needham Softball dri-fit long sleeve t-shirt.

Fall baseball registration is now open!

 

Fall baseball registration is now open!  Needham Fall Baseball continues to grow in popularity.  Don’t be left out!   Register today.  Programs are ready to go for 1st through 9th graders. 

ACT NOW for a free pair of exclusive Needham Fall Baseball sweatpants!

 

All players registered prior to our deadline of August 15th will receive a free pair of Needham Baseball sweatpants.  Fall practices can get cold, and this is the perfect solution.  Plus, you may optionally personalize with name and/or number for just $12.00.   


Needham Baseball and Softball is pleased to announce the opening of registration for our Fall Baseball programs.  We offer four programs for 2017, serving players from first grade through age 15.

 

First and second graders (school year 2017-2018) may sign up for our Fall Development League.  Offering development of fundamentals through drills, practices and intramural games, this program is designed to help younger baseball players establish the fundamental skills needed throughout their baseball careers.  Our weekday clinics are one hour in length, scheduled prior to dinnertime, and are organized and run by the professional coaches at Frozen Ropes.  Each team will have one or more Needham parents to manage the Sunday afternoon coach-pitch games.  Players will be grouped with others from their elementary school if possible and both 1st and 2nd graders will be on the same team.    

 

For competitive travel baseball, Needham participates in two programs - The Newton East Little League program for 8-12 year olds (as of April 30, 2018) in 3rd through 6th grades and the Norwood Diamond Club Big Diamond program, for 13-15 year olds (as of April 30, 2018). 
 

High School freshmen may sign up for our 15u Wood Bat team.  This team will play in the RBI Academy League and this program is designed to give high school freshmen a season of experience with wood bats and highly competitive baseball.  Travel as far as Foxboro is possible.  Alternatively, freshmen seeking a more casual experience may join the above Norwood league.  15 year old sophomores may also join the Norwood League. 
 

All players registering and Paid In Full by the deadline of August 15th will receive a pair of free Needham Fall Baseball sweatpants.  But you must be registered and paid by the deadline - no exceptions.   
 
Registration is open now at www.needhambaseball.com.  Registration will close and teams will be formed on August 15, 2017, so register now!  After August 15th, players will be assigned only on a first-come, first-served basis where open slots are available.  It may seem far away, but register before the end of the school year to assure placement on a fall team (and sweatpants). 
 

Fall coaches are needed.  Please contact the Fall Director, Paul Siegenthaler (paul@ridgehillpartners.com), if you are interested in coaching at any level.

 
More information may be found on the Needham Baseball and Softball website under either the Open Registrations tab or the Baseball Programs tab. 

 
Thank you for participating in Needham Baseball and Softball.  For more information, email Paul Siegenthaler, Director of Fall Baseball (paul@ridgehillpartners.com).
