Baystate Summer Baseball - 2021 Season In Progress
Bay State Summer Baseball Program
Each summer, Lexington Baseball participates in the Bay State Baseball League. The mission of Bay State Baseball is to bring together youth all-star teams from cities and towns within Massachusetts, regardless of affiliation, for highly competitive summer baseball and ultimately, a single champion (per age group). The teams compete for the coveted Tournament of Champions trophy.Games typically begin between the end of June and finish in early/mid-August depending on the success of the team.
Teams typically play 16-22 games (3-4 games per week) – one home weekday, one away weekday and 1-2 weekend games (A, B and C divisions only). In order to introduce the players to tournament baseball, various weekend games are played at neutral sites that will host upwards of 25-30 games throughout the day. Bay State Baseball is considered travel baseball and while the first round of play is always arranged geographically to minimize travel (30 minutes), subsequent rounds are arranged by performance and to introduce new competitors and require longer travel (60 minutes).
In deciding whether to register for Bay State Baseball, players and their families should consider the extent of the time commitment required. The goal of this program is to ensure that each coach puts forth the best team possible and that there are enough players available for each game. Lexington Baseball realizes that families have vacations, camps, and other activities planned during the summer months. If you are aware of any conflicts, please contact the appropriate coach at tryouts. While rosters are built to try and accommodate these conflicts, consistent participation, practice and game play are key to development and team success.
