Changes to Baseball and Softball Programs
Major Boys will be playing in a 50/70 format for this Spring.
The 50/70 format is a bridge to transition from the traditional 46-foot pitching distance and 60-foot base paths to the modified baseball field using a 50-foot pitching distance and 70-foot base paths. This helps the players with their future transition to the 60-foot 6-inch pitching distance and 90-foot base paths on which they typically play beginning at age 13 and older. 50/70 baseball allows for a more complete baseball experience, offering many changes that help players develop the full complement of baseball skills, as well as makes for a more exciting game experience. In addition to field dimensions mentioned above, some of the other changes for 50/70 over 46/60 includes: Runners may take leads, balks and pickoffs are allowed, pitchers will learn to pitch from the stretch to hold runners on base.
Major boys is open to all 5th and 6th graders and 7th graders who do not turn 13 until after April 30, 2015.
Softball will be broken down into the following Divisions:
Instructional Girls (K and 1st Grade - All LH teams, played at LHLL Complex)
Minor Girls (2nd and 3rd Grade - Separate LH, Warren, Watchung and Green Brook (WWG) Teams, played at LHLL Complex and WWG Fields)
Major Girls (4th and 5th Grade - Separate LH, Warren, Watchung and Green Brook (WWG) Teams, played at LHLL Complex and WWG Fields)
Senior Girls (6th, 7th and 8th Grade - Integrated teams between LH, Warren, Watchung and Green Brook (WWG), played at LHLL Complex and WWG Fields)
American Field Renovations
The American Field has been renovated this Fall with a new grass infield along with modifications to allow for conversion from a 46/60 to a 50/70 field. Progress pictures are below:
IN-SEASON PRACTICE SIGN-UP
The weekly practice schedule will be posted inside the snack shack every other Sunday at 12:00, for practices the following Monday through the second Sunday. The schedule will be for two weeks. To allow enough week day practice time for everyone, please do not book week day practices for both weeks (every other week is fine). If by Thursday you notice that there are still many open practice slots, you can go ahead and book a consecutive week practice. Weekend slots are always available.
