All players will need to have their own batting helmet, glove, and bat. Bats for all Cal Ripken ages must have a USA stamp on them. All players will be issued a team uniform, hat, socks and belt. Coaches will inform you of what color pants to buy once team uniforms have been ordered. The player draft will be held soon and players will be placed on teams and notifications will be going out to update your sports engine app to see your assigned team and coach. Practices will start some time in March (weather permitting) once we get approval from the city. Opening Day and team pictures will be April 27 with more information and times to follow.
The objective of Methuen Youth Baseball shall be to implant firmly in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority so that they may be well-adjusted, stronger, and happier children and will grow to be good, decent healthy and trustworthy citizens.
