Parents - please find the rosters below for the Spring AAU Season. I want to apologize for the delay, however we were firming up the coaching staff for both teams.
The philosophy of the Plymouth Babe Ruth AAU program is equal playing time at a variety of positions that the boys may see as a 13 yr old in Babe Ruth. Pitching will be limited for any player that may throw for his Babe Ruth team. Therefore, all hands on deck! The transition to the big diamond is not easy, that is why having this opportunity will be extremely beneficial for all. As a reminder, this is not ROX, as this will run through PBR. Additionally this has nothing to do with all star selections. ALL STAR selections and extended summer teams will be voted on by coaches in both the Rose and Downie Divisions during the regular season.
Both teams will play in the Open Division of New England AAU http://www.neaau.org/sports/baseball . The coaches will be heading to the February meetings to schedule our games. In addition to the Open Division schedule, other games will be played outside of the Open Division against Super and Diamond Division Teams. Our goal is to play 10-12 double headers in Plymouth on Friday, Saturday or Sunday Nights. These will NOT conflict with our Babe Ruth Schedule. Most of the 13U games will be on Fridays as the boys are not involved in the High School games as of yet. We hope to avoid traveling at all costs! Games will begin the first weekend in April.
In addition to the fee, we will also be asking each player to sell 5 - $10 raffle tickets for a chance at 4 tickets to a late summer Red Sox game. This has proven to be a easy fundraiser to help offset the cost of when we will be using Plymouth North High School's Varsity Baseball Field and Lights.
Practice times and dates are as follows at Atlantic Baseball Club, 100 Armstrong Road in Plymouth behind Oreck Vacuum. We look forward to a bunch of swings, and getting connected as a team for the first time. With just an hour at the facility, please try to arrive 10-15 minutes early. Former Babe Ruth Coach and PNHS Freshman Coach, Warren Borgatti along with former PSHS JV Coach and College Pitcher, Eric Baril will be at the indoor workouts to work with the players.
