Kent will be holding a Fall Baseball camp for those going to and those in Rookie (7,8,9 Year olds) and those in Mosquito / Pee Wee (10 – 13 year olds) at the Sackville Heights Junior High School on Friday nights.

Looking for Umpires
Bedford Minor Baseball is always looking for players 13 years of age and older to get involved in umpiring. This is a great way for a young person to make some money during the summer. The payment structure for the various divisions is listed below:
Mosquito House League & Rep - Plate $30; Bases $25
Pee-Wee House League & Rep - Plate $30; Bases $20
Bantam House League & Rep - Plate $40; Bases - $35
You must attend an umpire clinic in order to work as an umpire. The cost is $60. Once you have attended the clinic, the association will reimburse you $30 towards the clinic fee if you are a first-time umpire. For more information:
Volunteers are needed to help in areas such as coaching and executive positions. No sport can be successful without volunteers and Bedford Minor Baseball is no different. We encourage you to sign up on the registration form in the space provided, or contact one of the members of the executive. The association presently is run by a small group of volunteers, who also volunteer with various teams as coaches or managers.
If you are interested in coaching and would like some formal instruction, Bedford Minor Baseball will support you by paying for your start up course, which consists of an on-line course and a four hour technical course.
When and Where do they teams play?
The 6U and 8U divisions play at Meadowbrook field (behind Basinview School) twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30PM. Recreational teams (House league), for 11U - Mosquito age and older, play in a league with teams from Sackville and Fall River, and perhaps from Hammonds Plains and St. Margaret’s Bay as well. The Bedford 11U - Mosquito teams use Meadowbrook Field and Joan Lenihan Memorial Field as their home field. The 13U - Pee-Wee and 15U - Bantam teams play at Joan Lenihan and Robert Lenihan (Range Park). The recreational leagues start in early June and run until mid-September. Teams usually play 2 games per week, generally between Sunday and Thursday.
At the rep level, Bedford is combined with Fall River and Sackville to form the Tri-County Baseball Association. Depending on the age group, home games are played in any of the three areas.
What do I get for my registration fee?
Players in the Rookie and Squirt divisions get a hat to keep, as well as Baseball Canada hats through our Rally Cap Program. A jersey will be provided, but it must be returned at the end of the season or your $50.00 uniform deposit cheque will be cashed.
At the recreational level, players receive a hat to keep. The team uniform, consisting of a jersey and pants, must be returned at the end of the season or your $50.00 uniform deposit cheque will be forfeited.
In all age groups, equipment such as bats and baseballs are provided by the Association, along with all umpire and field associated costs. Bedford Minor Baseball also insures all players with Baseball Nova Scotia, at a cost of $10 per participant. All Rookie, Squirt and recreational players are invited to a year end banquet and receive a memento.

Bedford Minor Baseball encourages all participants to purchase their own helmets for this coming season, however, we will still be supplying them for the 2009 season inside the team equipment bags. Beginning in 2010 all players will be required to have their own helmets. This decision has been made based on many studies about personal hygiene with sharing equipment such as helmets. Helmets can be purchased at stores such as Cleve's or SportsWheels for between $20 and $30.
Please be sure to keep us informed of your up-to-date email address, as information regarding registration and baseball camps, as well as tax receipts, are sent by email.
Looking for Volunteers!!!!
Executive Coordinators and Coaches
The BMB Executive is made up of a small number of volunteers who dedicate their time to the continuation of Baseball in Bedford. We are always looking for persons interested in helping in any way, whether you know Baseball or not. Many of the duties of the Executive are organizational and we are always in need of a helping hand. If you can volunteer time or a skill, please call a member and talk it over with us. We generally meet every second month unless it is a busy time such as season start-up which requires a somewhat larger time commitment through April and May.
Each year BMB undertakes a search for volunteers to act as Coordinators and Coaches at both the Rep and Rec/House League level. Coaching volunteers must have their Coaching Level I Certificate (Triple AAA teams, Level II technical)to be on the field but teams need other volunteers as well to organize players, schedules and finances. Coaches make up the largest number of volunteers. They meet pre-season to make up teams and schedules. They do the phoning, collect gear and sign out uniforms. Above all, their job is to teach skills, rules, sportsmanship, fair play, responsibility and baseball to their young players and ensure they have fun while learning.
Please submit a resume and letters of character reference now, or give us a call to talk it over.
It is hoped that parents will become involved in the sport of their child's choice by bringing them to the games, promoting positive sportsmanship at all times and by offering to volunteer in at least some capacity, however small. We often needs grounds crews for tournaments, canteen people, and those who help with special events. Many small efforts can easily add up to a large success over the season. Please do not wait to be asked.
Umpires are always in demand. Teens who are over 14 and adults are invited to attend local clinics and then apply to be placed on the roster. Watch for local clinics.
