Spring 2020 Player Evaluations - February 23 and March 1
by posted 02/15/2020

Player safety and development is at the core of the Southborough Little League mission statement, and in an effort to ensure every player is placed at the right level for their age and skill level and our teams stay as balanced as possible, we will be holding evaluations for all baseball players between the ages of 8 - 11. We ask that all such players attend one of the evaluations (there is no need to attend both). While these live evaluations help us to see any growth and improvement from last year, please be assured that we will also be using coach evaluations from last spring/summer for all returning players to form the most complete picture we can of each child when determining placement for the spring 2020 season.


Evaluation Dates and Times

Location: Armour Cage @ St. Mark's, School Street, Southborough

Sunday, February 23

    6:30 PM - 7:30 PM (All age 8s; age 9s that played AA in Spring 2019)
    7:30 PM - 8:30 PM (Age 9s that played AAA in Spring 2019; all age 10s-11s)

Sunday, March 1

    7:30 PM - 8:30 PM (Age 9s that played AAA in Spring 2019; all age 10s-11s)


All players who are "baseball" age 12 are automatically assigned to Majors. If you are unsure of your player's "baseball" age, please use the age calculator provided by Little League Baseball, which can be found here: https://www.littleleague.org/ play-little-league/determine- league-age/.


** Please note that these evaluations are closed events; please plan to drop your child off 10 minutes before the starting time and to pick them up at the conclusion of their scheduled hour. **


All that is necessary is a glove and to be ready to play baseball! We will provide equipment such as bats, helmets, and catching gear, though you are welcome to have your child bring and use their own. If you have a question on whether a particular piece of equipment is approved for use (for example, bats must have the "USA Baseball" sticker prove conformity to Little League safety standards), please don't hesitate to ask.


If you have any questions or are not able to attend one of the evaluation dates, please reach out to our Player Agent, Nick Karmelek - you can email him at .

Spring Baseball Registration is Now Open!
by posted 10/10/2019

Southborough Little League is excited to announce that our Spring Baseball Registration is now open!


Spring Season Overview

Southborough Little League ("SLL") provides boys and girls ages 4 years and up the opportunity to learn and develop their baseball skills in an all-inclusive spring program that aims to provide a fun and exciting youth sports experience for players of all abilities.  SLL is a chartered member of Little League Baseball and works hard to perpetuate the values of fair play and sportsmanship - the foundation of Little League Baseball. 

Our program offers 7 divisions of spring baseball to provide a fun and competitive learning experience to players of all ages and abilities. 


Our T-ball program introduces the game of baseball to our youngest participants (mostly 4-5 year olds) and focuses on the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. Players hit a ball off a batting tee. The primary goals are to have fun, to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork.   Practices and games are combined into a 90 minute session.  We anticipate have 8-10 sessions per team starting on May 4th and ending mid-June.  Most, if not all, sessions will be on Saturdays and Sundays (sometimes both days of the weekend) and will typically start between noon and 3pm.

Our Minor League program continues to focus on skills development and fun while progressively introducing the kids to a more competitive playing environment. Players from ages 6-11 are organized into 3 levels (A, AA, and AAA) based on age and ability and progressively move through each level as their baseball skills and knowledge of the game develop. The goal of the Minor League is to prepare children for eventual selection to a Major League team.

In this structure, players progress from the “A” division, a purely developmental coach-pitch league, through the “AA” division, which introduces kid pitching while continuing to focus heavily on overall skills development, to the “AAA” division, which continues to have a developmental focus while introducing players to game rules that more closely approximate the standard Little League rules that players in the Major League follows.

Our Major League program provides players ages 10-12 with the opportunity to continue their development in a more competitive environment. Teams play a 12-14 game regular season schedule that culminates in an exciting playoff series to crown an eventual town champion.

Our Junior and Senior League programs provide players ages 13-16 the opportunity to continue playing town baseball in a competitive and fun environment against other Southborough teams as well as teams from surrounding communities.
