IMPORTANT: House League Registration Update
(Posted on March 6, 2017, Updated on March 12, 2017)

Thank you again for your interest and continued patience. The task of managing this year’s registration volume has proven to be more challenging than ever. But we, the BASEBALLMILTON Board of Directors, have remained committed to ensuring that we accommodate as many players as possible. We have implemented a number of key initiatives to facilitate expansion beyond our numbers of last year but have ultimately hit a hard cap based on the number of diamonds available.

With a number of registrants still on waitlists in a number of our divisions, BASEBALLMILTON has decided to take on a fairly significant measure to clear as much of these waitlists as possible. For the 2017 House League season, we will be partnering with the Brookville Baseball Association. What this means is that our Sr. T-Ball, Tyke, and Peewee divisions will include one Brookville team and our Rookie and Mosquito divisions will include two Brookville teams. In exchange, we gain access to Brookville diamonds and as a result, are able to add more Milton teams, which in turn allows for more Milton ballplayers. Please note, that while the Grasshopper division will not be adding a Brookville team, it still benefitted from an expansion.

Of course, this means travel to Brookville will be required for some divisions. We have aligned the games days and diamonds such that the younger divisions, T-Ball and Tyke, will play all their games in Milton, i.e. no travel will be required for these divisions. Brookville will travel to Milton for 100% of their games in these divisions. Since Grasshopper will not have a Brookville team, all Grasshopper games will be played in Milton. For our intermediate aged divisions of Rookie, Mosquito, and Peewee, there will be travel to Brookville. Scheduling is yet to be finalized but we expect that the maximum number of games to be played in Brookville by each Milton team will be two for the entire season.

Brookville is approximately 10-15 minutes west of Milton so we have arranged to have later start times for games played in Brookville to allow for the extra travel time for our teams. Brookville diamond details will be added to the "Ball Park Info and Locations" link.

In summary:

  • Jr. T-Ball: All games in Milton. No Brookville teams in division.
  • Sr. T-Ball: All games in Milton. One Brookville team in division.
  • Grasshopper: All games in Milton. No Brookville teams in division.
  • Tyke: All games in Milton. One Brookville team in division.
  • Rookie: One or two games per team in Brookville with the rest of the games in Milton. Two Brookville teams in division.
  • Mosquito: One or two games per team in Brookville with the rest of the games in Milton. Two Brookville teams in division.
  • Peewee: One or two games per team in Brookville with the rest of the games in Milton. One Brookville team in division.
  • Bantam: Pending discussion with Burlington Organized Minor Baseball Association. Similar set up as last year is expected.
  • Midget: Pending discussion with Burlington Organized Minor Baseball Association. Similar set up as last year is expected.

Game days and venues for divisions from Jr. T-Ball to Peewee have been confirmed and info is now posted on our home page as well as on the division information pages under the House League tab. Further information regarding Bantam and Midget should be announced next week. Please stay tuned for further details.

A Message from the Board of Directors
(Updated on December 1, 2016)

With the registration period for the 2017 season now open, we here at BASEBALLMILTON would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the strength of our organization is directly related to contributions of our volunteers.

The 2016 season was a breakout season for BASEBALLMILTON, in large part due to the success of the Toronto Blue Jays in 2015.  Our player registration grew from just over 600 ball players in the 2015 season to over 1000 players in 2016.  And the number of house league teams went from 49 to 73.  In order to run these 73 teams, we needed 146 dedicated individuals, 2 for each team, to serve as either head coach or assistant coach.  And we know that there were even more individuals that didn't receive a snazzy grey coach's shirt but still helped out their respective teams.

The BASEBALLMILTON Board of Directors would like to extend their sincere thanks to all of those that "pitched" in (pun intended).

We would like to take this opportunity to reach out to all the parents planning to register their kids for another season with BASEBALLMILTON to consider contributing their time and effort again or for the first time.  Our volunteers are really the key to making this baseball endeavour successful.  It would be fanstastic if we collectively created a really great baseball experience for our kids.

While the Jays fell short of the World Series again, they still had a fantastic season and certainly sparked the imagination of many kids in our town.  Our registration will very likely be boomin' once again this year.  

So when you are filling out your registration form, please consider ticking that Volunteer box. Alternatively, you can reach out to us directly at info@baseballmilton.com.  Let's work together to ensure that we can collectively provide the quality to match or even exceed the quantity.

Yours In Baseball, 

BASEBALLMILTON Board of Directors
