Lightning League

Baseball Program

Fast-paced Summer Baseball Fun

June 29th through July 21st

$20/player

 

Williamstown Cal Ripken Baseball is now registering players for our Lightning League Baseball Program.  The Lightning League highlights the great aspects of baseball in a new, fast-paced Lightning format.

Here are the highlights:

  • Teams will have 6 players.  No pitchers or catchers.  4 Infielders, 2 Outfielders.
  • 20 minute warmups/practice before games - focus on development of skills
  • 4 inning games
  • Machine pitch, 3 pitches per batter
  • Continuous batting order
  • Standard Minor league (46/60) Cal Ripken Baseball rules apply with the exception of no bunting or stealing. 
  • 3 runs max per inning
  • Players play multiple positions per game
  • Outfield fence at 175 feet (typically 200 ft)
  • Games are twice a week
  • Players provided popsicles after every game

This format encourages the players to swing hard at the plate and to be aggressive on the bases.  On defense, players develop glove and throwing skills along with knowledge of each defensive position.

Games will be played during the week nights (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) depending on field availability. 

The cost to play is $20.  The season begins June 29th and will wrap-up on July 21st.

There will be 2 divisions:

Minors:  This division is oriented toward players league ages 7-10 (as of April 30, 2017) who played Minors this spring.  Rookie players that wish to play Minors next spring are also encouraged to play.  This division will use standard (hard) baseballs and will have a faster pace of play. 

Rookies:  This division is for players league ages 5-7 (as of April 30, 2017) who played Grant League or Rookies this spring.  This division will use soft baseballs and coaches will be on the field to help the players during the games.
