Big League Opens Fall Ball Season At Mushroom Festivus; Ball Players Needed

August 26, 2014

The Delaware Valley Big League Fall Ball season opens with the 8th annual Mushroom Festivus Wood Bat Tournament, hosted by Kennett Athletic Union (KAU) from September 3 to September 10.  Twelve teams from across the Delaware Valley will compete in two pools of play.  The top two teams, as determined after four pool games, advance to Semi-Final play.  Brandywine will play its first game on September 3 against Kennett at their NVF field (6PM).  Kennett just returned from the Big League World Series.  Brandywine plays a twin-bill on Saturday at Dyer against Avon Grove (1PM) and Caln (4PM). Pool play comes to a close with a Sunday game at NVF versus West Chester (1PM).  The team plans to play in four other tournaments this fall, as well as some individual games versus Del Val teams.  If you are interested in competitive baseball  and played Big League baseball this past spring or will be 18U next season, please contact Coach David Bacher by e-mail or at 302--540-0327. 

REGISTER FOR FALL BALL BY FRIDAY, AUGUST 29!

More than 225 players have registered for Fall Ball! Why haven't you?  We will have the following options available (player's age is based on age on April 30, 2015-- NEXT baseball season).  Please register by Friday, August 29. Teams will be put together over Labor Day weekend with play starting the following weekend.  

  • Sandlot -- Ages 5-6 -- Coach Pitch
  • Minors -- Ages 7-9 -- Kid Pitch
  • Majors -- Ages 10-12
  • Juniors -- Ages 13-14
  • Seniors -- Ages 15-16
  • Big League -- Ages 17-18 (Wood Bat Tournaments, individual Metal Bat games)

For younger ages Fall Ball is instructional.  For Majors, expect Fall Ball level of play to be somewhere between AAA and Majors level.  For Juniors and Seniors, expect to play inter-league with other programs in New Castle County.  For Big League, expect to participate in Fall Tournaments with Pennsylvania teams.  BLL Fall Ball is open to any Little League player who participated this past spring in Brandywine, Wilmington, or Naamans Little Leagues (Big League is open to players from any league in District 2). Because non-Little League players (ie, Fox Point, DNP in the spring) are not covered by LL insurance, we'll require a separate waiver before these players can be registered.

We need Managers and Coaches to volunteer. Please indicate your willingness on the registration form. Schedules have not been made but expect season to run from September 6 to October 18. Before daylight savings ends, teams will play games during the week and on weekends. When days get short, only Majors, Juniors and Seniors will play week nights. Goal is to play a 12-game schedule at all levels. Registration fee is $50 and includes a shirt and hat for each player. Remember, Fall Ball is meant to be fun and instructional, and an opportunity to play with kids from other leagues. This is not intended to be Travel Ball and Full Team registration is not accepted. If you have questions or concerns, e-mail Bob Jump or Mike Mallamaci (see contact info under Board of Directors).

Please go to the Fall Ball Registration tab to register.
