Wayland Summer Baseball

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Wayland Little League summer program provides baseball programs for players of all ages who wish to continue to play over the summer.  Summer baseball is played against neighboring towns and exposes kids to players and ballparks of neighboring/area towns.

 

Summer Jimmy Fund League (Ages 6-8)

Commitment

In deciding whether or not to try out for Bay State Baseball, players and their families should consider the extent of the time commitment required (2-3 games a week). The goal of this program is to ensure that each coach can field the best team possible and that there are enough players available for each game.  Wayland Baseball realizes that everyone’s circumstances are different during the summer related to vacations, camps, etc. If you are aware of potential conflicts, do not let this be a deterrent from trying out and contact the appropriate coach at tryouts.  Rosters are built to accommodate these conflicts to ensure each team has enough players for each game.
