Emphasis will be placed on the development of good, sound baseball and softball skills without sacrificing the enjoyment and fun of playing the game.

The Baseball division(s) in which a child may play is determined by his/her age as defined by Cal Ripken League and Babe Ruth League rules. Those rules state that the League Age is determined by the child's age on April 30th of the baseball season. A child born on or after May 1 is one League year younger than a child born before May 1. However, players who were born in the Summer months may register as a SWING player so they can play with their grade-level peers.  Intra-league Softball divisions are determined by school year so players play with their grade-level peers and travel softball league divisions are determined by birth year.

The current WYBSL COVID-19 Response Plan can be found on the Documents Page Under Parents & Players:  (https://www.leagueathletics.com/Documents.asp?org=wybsl.com) 

Volunteer Your Time - SUMMER 2022

We are always in need of coaches, coordinators, and other volunteers to help make the softball and baseball programs a success. We hope that parents can volunteer some amount of time during the season. Click "Register" to see a list of some of the duties and activities for which we need volunteers. Please indicate how you would like to volunteer.

If you are volunteering to coach, please indicate WHICH DIVISION(S) you wish to coach and/or be a director.

Thank you!

 A little more info on both programs...

The Junior Ghosts is a competitive program which places teams in the New Balance Select Baseball League

Westford enters Junior Ghost teams in the NB Select League based on the amount of talent and availability of players at each age level.

This is a “try out” program.  This is also a travel league and typically costs around $750-$850 per season, including winter workouts.

Minuteman baseball is a big diamond travel baseball program encompassing several surrounding or nearby towns.  There are 4 divisions in Minuteman, based on skill, to which Westford can enter a team (D1 through D4).

Minuteman is for players aged 13-16 next spring.

Minuteman typically costs around $250, this does not include an optional winter workout at Gametime in Lowell.
