  • ALL DYB AAA & Majors players wishing to play summer baseball are to report for tryouts on May 8. May 9 is reserved for rainout date and or callbacks but may not be necessary. DYB encourages all players who want to play this summer to attend tryouts. DYB will endeavor to place all players on a team, but cannot guarantee a spot for everyone.

 

  • DYB’s 12U teams will likely play games on 50/70 diamonds (the same dimensions as at Sinnott).  Games will be local with some tournament play.  Most games will be on weeknights, but there may be some weekend games.  “Playing down” is permitted for some players to the extent that eligibility under Ripken league rules is based on baseball age, otherwise teams will be grade based.  For example, a 7th grader who is still 12 as of May 1, 2019 is eligible for 12U play, even if they are a grade above most teammates. Playing down is at the discretion of parents, and is not required. Playing up by younger players is not permitted. (For example, an 11 year old fifth grader cannot “play up” on a 12U team.)

 

  • 11U teams may play on 50/70 diamonds and or 46/60 diamonds.  Games will be local with some tournament play.  Most games will be on weeknights, but there will be some weekend games and or tournaments.  Eligibility is determined by grade and baseball age as of May 1, 2019. Playing down is permitted under Ripken eligibility rules, but not required; playing up by younger players is not permitted. (See explanation above.) 

 

  • 9U and 10U teams will play on 46/60 diamonds. Games will be local with some tournament play.  Most games will be on weeknights, but there will be some weekend games and or tournaments. Depending on interest, there may be the possibility of a 46/60 South River team for third and fourth graders not selected for an “A” or “B” team. Eligibility is determined by grade and baseball age as of May 1, 2019. Playing down is permitted under Ripken eligibility rules, (some third graders may be eligible for Friendship Baseball) but not required; playing up by younger players is not permitted. (See explanation above.) 

  

  • Players who are chosen for an A team are committed to the A team and cannot then opt off to the B team(s). “A” team players should generally expect to play more games and or have more practices than would a B team.  Players who are not committed to what may be a more demanding A-team schedule or whose vacation may conflict must make that known at the time of tryouts.

 

  • Players are selected for teams based on both the results of the tryout and input from the coaches of the teams in the player’s spring league. In addition, attitude, commitment, and coachability may be determining factors in the selection process.

 

  • Any spring coach who wishes to be considered as a head coach or as an assistant coach should make this known prior to tryouts by sending an e-mail to DYB President Gary Williamson expressing their interest. .  Team coaches will be chosen after teams are selected through a committee which will include the DYB executive board members, the league coordinators and the all-star tryout coordinator.

 

  • In general, absent a doctor’s note, players who do not attend scheduled tryouts are not eligible to make a team.  DYB reserves discretion to adjust tryout procedure, scheduling, and eligibility criteria as appropriate should rare, exigent circumstances warrant.

 

  • Questions should be directed to the league coordinators: 
  • Major Coordinators are Tom MacKinnon and Ron Gallagher
  • AAA Coordinators are Joe Armstrong, Eric Widdop and John Edmonds.

Important Information about Baseball Bats

The Board of Directors of Duxbury Youth Baseball have formally adopted the USA baseball bat standards and the requirements stated within.  What this means for our coaches and players is that any baseball bat used during the in-town spring season in 2019 as well as any summer league play must be USA bat approved.  The use of outdated and non-compliant bats will no longer be allowed.  In addition, DYB had previously not allowed the use of "big barrel" bats.  As we move forward, any bat with the USA bat stamp on it will be allowed which includes bats that are 2 5/8 in diameter.  Please find information about the USA bat standards inthis link.  https://www.baberuthleague.org/batter-up/articles/new-bat-specification-testing.aspx

Thank you,

The Directors of DYB
