Our Baseball League is open to all surrounding towns. There are no borders! If you can get to our Bloomfield fields, you can signup in our league.
All Little League "graduates" are welcomed
Juniors (league ages 13-17)
Seniors (18-22, 23-33, 34+) no age cutoff: Volunteer your time to coach junior league and/or tryout for the Bloomfield Buzzards' adult travel teams (6 of them).
Our games are a great way to get your teenager extra reps in the field (or pitching) and or extra game time plate appearances.
Most after school sports, games or practices wrap up by 5:30/6:00 and even though our games start at 6:00/6:30, there is still plenty of time to get your teenager into our local games which typically go until 8:30/9:00 (7 innings); as late as 10:30p on Fridays.
Most travel teams don't practice every night and most of their games are played on the weekends so your teenager should be able to attend most of our games during the week.
Everyone is assessed and drafted to a team. Age, experience & skill level will be considered in order to get the combined balance of each team equal to all the others.
Including practice, each team on average plays
2-3, nights per week, Monday to Friday. NO weekends!
Sometimes (but rarely), bad weather could force makeup games to Saturday mornings.
