Welcome To Groton-Dunstable Baseball!!!

[SEE BELOW FOR THE NEW 2018 BASEBALL BAT RULES]

SPRING REGISTRATION IS OPEN

Registration is now open until 2/15 for the GD Baseball Spring Season, as well as the very popular Winter Baseball Skills Clinics for Minors, Majors, and Babe Ruth.  Please follow the "Register Online" link to the left to register!  We are again partnered with the elite coaching staff at In The Batter's Box (MAJORS & BABE RUTH levels) and the At Bats Training Center (MINORS level) to conduct these clinics.  Feedback from Session 1 was extremely positive.

PLAYER EVALUATIONS: Skill evaluations for Minors & Majors players will be held at the Groton School gym on March 19th & 20th.  All registered players at these levels will receive an invite.  Evaluations are conducted in a fair, non-competitive, and low-pressure manner and are only intended to ensure we form teams of equal abilities.  Skills at these ages vary widely, and we have first-time players & beginners at all levels.

FIRST GAMES: We anticipate that our first games of the season will occur on or about April 21 (weather and field conditions permitting).

OPENING DAY: Opening Day is currently scheduled for April 28th, the day after the Groton Road Race, weather and field conditions permitting.  Please join us for this family-oriented event!!  Our multi-age Home Run Derby begins at 10AM sharp.  The schedule will be posted soon!

See you on the field,

John

NEW BAT RULES:

The Groton-Dunstable Youth Baseball League is a Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Program.  Like all other programs, we must adhere to the rules set nationally for equipment.  This year, USA Baseball (the governing authority for bats), has revised the material and manufacturing rules for the bats used in our league.  THIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL LIKELY HAVE TO REPLACE YOUR PLAYER'S BAT PRIOR TO THE 2018 SEASON.  Why?  Over the last decade, bat manufacturers were allowed a fairly wide selection of materials and manufacturing practices.  This resulted in the marketing of the so-called "trampoline" bats.  These bats imparted additional energy to a hit baseball raising safety concerns.  For 2018, USA Baseball is limiting the materials manufacturers can use, as well as dictating the overall weight of the bats.  Please see the table below for the difference between 2017 and 2018.  Any bat used in our league MUST HAVE THE MARKINGS SHOWN under the 2018 column.
