2008 Season Notes and Dates of Interest

Our board has been very busy this offseason working hard to continue to take the program to new heights and make it as fun and rewarding as possible for the players.
The season is coming up fast and there are several important dates and pieces of information that you should be aware of. We will be sending out updates every few weeks from here on until we get started so that everyone is in the loop as best as they can be! Here you go:
We are changing the 5th grade league over to a 50 / 70 program this season. This means 70 foot base paths (as opposed to 60 ft.) and pitching from 50 feet (instead of 46 ft.). It also means that these players will have the opportunity to take leads, pitch from the stretch and use their pick off moves this season (coaches will spend quite a bit of time teaching these aspects of the game in the pre-season practices). Just about every other town is switching to this format and it should provide great fun and better development of skills for our kids!
Games begin on April 5th.
The second annual Medford Madness Tournament for varsity travel teams in grades 3 through 6 will be held over the weekend of March 29th. Our travel teams will get an opportunity to compete against some very strong competition and get some great games in to kick off their season. Last year, we had teams from 4 states come to compete and it was a blast!
The first annual Medford Baseball Golf Outing will be held on May 5th.
Please mark your calendar as this should be a lot of fun and a great opportunity for us all to get together off the fields! Details will be coming soon.
Travel try outs will be held on the following dates and times. Multiple fields will be used, but please meet at the field indicated:
5th grade: March 15th at 11:30 AM on field 3.
4th grade: March 15th at 9:30 AM on field 1
3rd grade: March 15th at 11:30 AM on field 1.
7th grade: April 5th at 12 Noon on the Babe Ruth field at Hartford Crossing.
8th grade: April 5th at 9 AM on the Babe Ruth field at Hartford Crossing.
Younger ages will be held at a later date to be determined.
Thank you for your support of the best baseball program in NJ!
