North Baltimore Youth League President Suzanne Bucher gave the following report from the meeting held last week to determine where to play ball this season.
Approximately 15 people (parents) were at the NB Youth League Public Meeting on Wednesday (approximately 125 kids play in our league), and after discussions, we have come to the conclusion that the NB Youth League will be in the Southwood League for all age divisions in both softball AND baseball this year.
One of the main reasons we have chosen Southwood is that the Hancock County League 8U divisions format is that coaches do the pitching and they use a tee if necessary. In addition HCL only plays a five week season, with no tournaments.
Another reason we have chosen Southwood, is that the season for the baseball divisions in Hancock County begin in early May and are over by early June only playing eight games. The Southwood season will begin early in May for 8U and 10U, and will conclude with tournaments before the 4th of July. The Southwood 12U and 15U divisions will begin mid to late May, and will conclude with tournaments immediately after the 4th of July. Offering more games and tournaments.
Information will come home from schools with all students in the near future. Please look for it as it will announce our registration dates, tentatively to be around the week of February 17th.
