NCLL Summer Ball

Remember sandlot ball? Summer Ball is our attempt to recreate those days. Informal. Relaxed. No practices. Just come out and play. Going to be out-of-town for a week or two? No problem. Teams are formed with the expectation that players will not be available as much as in the spring while school is in session. And no weekend games. Always on weekday evenings.

The season runs from about July 5 to the week of Aug 9. A few games a week. Players receive a jersey and a cap with the registration fee of just $50.

Go to this site to determine your child's league age, then choose from among the following programs/divisions.

Three baseball divisions (boys and girls):

  • League age 7-9: Kid-pitch with coach-pitch at four balls.
  • League age 9-11: All kid-pitch. Rules similar to those of Majors division.
  • League age 12-16: Played on a 90' basepath field with rules similar to Juniors/Seniors. 

Players in Baseball divisions will have assigned teams but sharing players is common. Games typically on Mondays and Wednesdays.

This year, NCLL is pleased to announce softball divisions of Summer Ball for girls!

Two softball divisions (girls only):

  • League age 7-9: Kid-pitch with coach-pitch at four balls. Played with 11" softball.
  • League age 9-12*: All kid-pitch. Rules similar to those of Majors division. Played with 12" softball.

* If your 13 year old girl wants to play, please write to the registrar at [email protected].

Games will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Players will not be assigned to teams. Instead, teams will be chosen from among available players who show up to play.
