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.
Junior level (league ages 12-14). Parents have the choice to sign-up their *higher*skilled 12yr old for 60/90 varsity field competition.
Senior level (league ages 14-17)
Adults & Amateurs (18-22, 23-33, 34+) no age cutoff: Volunteer your time to coach teenagers and/or tryout to play for the Bloomfield Buzzards' adult travel teams (6 different levels).
Our games are a great way to get your teenager extra reps in the field (or pitching) and 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 games which typically go until 8:30/9:00 (7 innings); as late as 10:15p on Fridays.
Most club 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 other teams.
Most teams will carry a roster of 11-13 players.
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.
Opening Day in April with the Mayor is the only 'scheduled' Saturday games
During SUMMER LEAGUE we also try to stay away from Friday games as well.

Our league, and its perks like the food-stand's reliability and 'hours of operation' varies week to week based on volunteerism.
Our small group of kitchen-volunteers do their best to keep the food-stand staffed and open on most game-nights.

NO, all we do is focus on playing baseball. YET, we do encourage our spectators to frequently visit our food-stand window to support the league's efforts to help keep our food-costs down.
NO, we believe our registration (player) fee is the appropriate amount to offset KEY league expenses, such as Umpire dues, uniforms, insurances, team equipment, etc.
NO, our few "fundraising" events & activities are only meant to generate extra fun, excitement & awareness, BUT are completely optional. Events such as the Home Run Debry, All-Star-Game, Trip to Cooperstown, Food-Promos (Bambino Bucks), Team Merchandise, etc.
