2017 House League Registration Is Now Closed!

2017 House League Registration Is Now Closed!

Thank you all for your interest in playing baseball with BASEBALLMILTON this year.  We are looking forward to the start of season in May and along with it the warm weather.  As predicted, we were bursting at the seams and our registration cycle this year was the most challenging yet.

We’ve received a lot of feedback and are aware of the opportunities for improvements going forward.   While some of the opportunities around communcations and registration will be addressed by the volunteers within our organization in the coming year, there are other opportunities in which we are hoping that you, the parents of our players, are willing to get involved in.

The two biggest limiting factors as far as size of our House League is the number of coaching volunteers and the number of available diamonds. A number of you have helped with the former by stepping up to coach our teams.  Thank you!  There are a couple of divisions that are still light on coaching and we hope to address this matter in the next month.

The next big opportunity is to begin addressing our situation with available diamonds.  We will be outlining a plan to begin lobbying for more diamonds to be built in town over the next few years to help support our growth.  We will need your help with this effort.  Please stay tuned.  In the meantime, please check out this article below.  Clearly our situation is not unique and while the popularity of baseball has had its ups and downs over the years, hopefully, it is here to stay!
