Announcements

News and other stuff about the Bandits.

PRACTICE ATTENDANCE

For each winter practice, inform coach ahead of time only if you will be arriving late, leaving early, or absent. If you will be on time and attending the full practice, there's no need to send a message.

SHOW UP PREPARED

Wear baseball pants or sweat pants to every practice (no shorts), and bring all of your gear. If you're a catcher, be sure to bring a protective cup.

About the Bandits
The Bandits Baseball program is for dedicated players in grades 7 and 8 who live in Brookline. Our goal is to develop talented, smart, confident, disciplined, team-oriented ballplayers through high-level training and competitive games.

WHAT WE OFFER

The Bandits program offers several benefits for Brookline ballplayers:

  • Advanced skill development and competitive spring games comparable to out-of-town club teams

  • In-depth attention to the mental side of the game, strength and conditioning, team chemistry, and sportsmanship

  • The familiarity and cohesiveness of playing on an all-Brookline team

  • The convenience of playing home games in Brookline

  • Total cost that's about one-third of what out-of-town club teams charge

 

NUMBER OF TEAMS

We've fielded one team for each of the past few years, and we may add a second team in 2020. We’ll make a final decision during the fall, and it will depend on the number and talent level of players who want to participate in the Bandits spring program.

FIELD SIZE

The Bandits practice and play games on the full-size baseball diamond: 90-foot base paths; 60.5-foot pitching distance.

ROSTER SELECTION & TIMING

The Bandits program is looking for serious baseball players who are ready to:

  • Make a commitment to the program

  • Give their best mental and physical effort

  • Work hard to achieve their goals

  • Take responsibility for their decisions and actions

  • Put the team ahead of themselves

We realize that some out-of-town club teams will offer spring 2020 roster spots to players early in the fall. If you​'re trying to decide between an out-of-town team and the Bandits for next spring, we will let you know as early as necessary about your chances of earning a spot on the Bandits roster so you can make the decision that's best for you (please let us know if you're facing a deadline). In the end, we want kids to end up wherever they have the best chance to be challenged, successful, and happy playing baseball.

COMMITMENT & ATTENDANCE

We don’t expect you to attend every fall and winter practice, but we encourage you to attend as often as possible. The more you attend, the better your chance of earning a spring roster spot and improving your skills. We do expect you to make the Bandits your primary sports commitment during the spring season.

FALL 2019

The Bandits fall program is open to all Brookline players in grades 7-8, even those who don't plan to play for the Bandits ​next spring.

  • Flexible Schedule: Several practices/scrimmages each week, from early September through late October. Choose the sessions that fit your schedule.

  • In-Depth Training: Whether or not you're trying out for the Bandits spring team, the fall program is a great way to improve your knowledge and skills on the big diamond.

  • Extended Tryout: If you want to be considered for a spot on the Bandits spring roster, the fall season also serves as your tryout.

WINTER 2020

After the fall baseball season, we’ll let you know your spring roster status by early November. If you’re selected for the spring team, you’ll be invited to attend our weekly indoor winter practices — Sunday evenings, December through March — and you'll be expected to make a commitment to the Bandits during the spring.

SPRING 2020

The Bandits are planning to compete in two separate leagues: the Eastern Mass Independent Baseball League and the Elite Baseball League. We will likely have games on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and both weekend days from April through June, as well as practices when our schedule allows.
