Good morning SYB Community:

On October 1, 2014 the Board of Directors for Stoughton Youth Baseball/Babe Ruth Leagues will hold their annual meeting at the Stoughton Police Department Community Room. The meeting will start promptly at 7:30 P.M.

This meeting, like all of our meetings, is open to the public where we welcome comments and suggestions for the upcoming 2015 season.

A brief preview of the agenda (which is subject to change) will consist of the reorganization of the Board of Directors, a review of the 2014 season, and a discussion of what will be needed in the upcoming year.

We hope to see some of you there.

Regards,

SYB

2) Incoming 8 & 9yrs (A & AA)

The Giles and Gus Wood Fields will be available for the 2014 Skills and T-Ball players only.
All games/drills will run from 2:30pm- 4PM.
All 2014 Spring Coaches are encouraged to participate and assist with the facilitation of the games/drills.

Free Instructional Fall Baseball for Graduating SYB 12yr Olds
Stoughton Youth Baseball is pleased to offer a series of controlled scrimmages at the Drake Avenue Field on Saturday afternoons this fall. All players who completed their final year of Major Leagues and will be moving to the Babe Ruth Division in 2015 (DOB: 5/1/2001 – 4/30/2002) are invited to participate at no cost. The scrimmages will run from 12:00pm to 1:30pm. The first session will be on Saturday, September 13th and the final session will be Saturday, October 18th.

The purpose of these scrimmages is to introduce the kids to the rule changes for Babe Ruth and provide them with an opportunity to gain experience on the bigger baseball diamond. We hope these sessions will ease the transition for the kids and allow them to have some fun in a low-pressure environment during the off-season.

There is no registration necessary to participate. Members of the SYB BOD will facilitate the scrimmages. Should you have any questions or require additional information, please contact Shawn Croke at shawncroke@comcast.net or 617-605-5560.

Best Regards,

SYB BOD

If you were part of the Stoughton Youth Baseball League in the past, you should still have a profile in our system so please check before creating a new one. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us through our website or contact any board member.

2014 Spring Registration now open!
Posted Dec 20, 2013

PLEASE NOTE: The online registration form for the 2014 Spring Season does have some errors as to certain dates. However, this will not effect the regsitration process for the upcoming season. When asking for the age of the player as of Arpil 30th, the year should be 2014. Also, when asking what team they played for in 2009, this should be 2013. These changes cannot be done at the league level but rather from the website provider and we are working closely with them to rectify these issues. As always, SYB will be available to answer any question you have regarding the registration process.

Members can register online if you are paying by VISA/MC.

If you don't complete the online registration process by paying,

you will not be registered.

If you are paying by cash or if you are registering more than 3 players you must register in person at one of our upcoming registration events, to be announced, and make payment at that time to complete the registration. Also, take advantage of our payment plan when registering to spread out the cost. Parents or gaurdians of children eligible for player draft events must register before these events occur or the player will not be elligible for the draft. A $ $20.00 late will be assessed to any player registering after the SYB Breakfast Fundraiser.

2013 Summer 8's play for Friendship League Championship

Stoughton's 8 year old summer team played for the Bay State American League Championship on Sunday 7/28 versus Wellesley.

The game was a good old fashioned pitchers duel, and the six inning game was over in just 75 minutes. Great pitching and great defense by both teams took the spotlight, but in the end, sadly Stoughton lost 2-1... nonetheless, everyone had a great time and we are all very proud of the 2013 Stoughton 8 year old summer team, great job guys... !!!

 
11A TEAM BRINGS EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS CHAMPIONSHIP TO STOUGHTON

Here they are people. The 2013 Eastern

Massachusetts State Champions

Its time to raise the roof as history has been made here in Stoughton, MA. For the first time in Stoughton Youth Baseball history, the Championship has been called ours! This past Sunday the 11A team beat the Arlington National team with an impressive 9-3 victory, making Stoughton the 2013 Eastern Massachusetts State Champions!

What is most impressive is that this team had to play a series of 12 games against teams all across Eastern Massachusetts and winning 11 of those 12 games.

Stoughton went up against the following teams in their pool for a single elimination semi-final contest and winning 4-0, making them the #1 seed:

On July 13th against Chelmsford, Stoughton won 4-1

On July 15th against Quincy, Stoughton won 16-0

July 17th Stoughton played a double header, the first game Stoughton defeated Westford 11-0 and then defeated Arlington American 7-6

Then on July 20th in the Championship semi-final game against Plymouth, Stoughton once again stepped up and won 7-1

And finally, on July 21st Stoughton defeated Arlington National 9-3 to take the title. (It also has to be mentioned that the amount of Stoughton support that was present this past weekend in Lowell was fantastic).

Just by looking at those scores you can see that the talent exhibited in this series was nothing short of amazing. Stoughton went up against the best this region had to offer and absolutely dominated. Does it get any better than that?

But wait, there's more!!!!!

Stoughton now advances to the New England Regional Championship in Warwick Rhode Island which begins on August 3rd thru August 8th.

Tear it up guys!!!!!!

With a little luck, maybe we can end the season before the Patriots Opening Day!!
