BANTAM U15 - 2017 Season (born 2002 and 2003)
Bantam is for players 15 years of age and under as of December 31st (born 2001-02). Once registrations are completed and an initial assessment is done, it will be determined if we are able to field more than one Bantam team and if they will be 'AA' or 'A' caliber. The Springfield Bantam team(s) are based on the #1 diamond in Oakbank, directly north of the arena. Bantam is the last level that plays on a field smaller than regulation. Bantam is full-on baseball with batters facing pitching ranging from 50-75 mph, routine defensive plays, and the occasional long ball. Not many players START their baseball careers at Bantam, but don't let that discourage you if this is your first year. If you can throw, the Bantam coaches can teach you the rest.
Bantam A will play Tuesday and Thursday for the 2017 season.
Bantam AA will play Monday, Wednesday, Friday for the 2017 season.
