Cheshire Youth Baseball and Softball is a non-profit organization whose sole mission is to provide organized, instructional, recreational and competitive baseball and softball programs to Cheshire's youth. It is run entirely by volunteers at the Board of Directors, team manager and coaching levels. League players range from age 6 (T-Ball) through age 19 (American Legion).
The CYB/CYS Board of Directors wish our players and parents every success both on and off the field. We pledge our support as you enter into what we hope is a positive experience; for it is ultimately you, the managers, coaches and parents who will make our program successful and beneficial to Cheshire's youth and Cheshire's future.
Babe Ruth: 14 -15 year olds: (Born May 2, 2004 - December 31, 2006
Babe Ruth 13U Prep: 13 year olds (Born January 1, 2007 - December 31, 2007)
The Babe Ruth (13-15) season begins in Mid April and runs approximately through Mid June which includes playoffs. Cheshire teams will compete against other teams in our district which includes North Haven, S. Meriden, Middletown, Durham and Newington. Last year there were 16 teams in the league. We will endeavor to play in Cheshire during the week. Weekend games and some games in the week may be out of town.
There will be one set day a week for practice with the ability to have more when fields are available. All practices will be either held at Bartlem or Dodd.
Usually 2-3 games per week; it can vary week to week with 2 during the week and 1 on the weekend or 1 during the week and 1 on the weekend.
Babe Ruth's registration is $275.00.
Late Fee: $25 for all players registered after 3/21/2020
***Note there is also a $40 cancelation fee for refund requests made after drafts have been held.
This year we will again be offering a 13U Babe Ruth Prep Team that will help cover the age gap between Little League and Babe Ruth. This is because Little League and Babe Ruth Age charts do not overlap and there is a 4 month gap for which any player that is born between May 1, 2007 and August 31, 2007 is not eligible to play in either league, for that reason we are creating a new division exclusively for 13 year old players.
We are asking that all player who turn age 13 Register for 13U Prep. If you have already registered, we will transfer your registration. If you feel that you want to play on the 14-15 year old Babe Ruth, please notify us via email and we will review and make a decision before drafts are done.
This division will run simultaneously with Babe Ruth and play multiple towns. Currently their are 6 surrounding towns between District 7 and 2 that will be also creating the same 13U Prep Team.
The 2020 season was another great one for Cheshire Youth Baseball and Softball! The kids were able to enjoy such a phenomenal season due to the many volunteers who gave their time, and to you, the sponsors willing to support our baseball and softball program. As always, one rule that remains constant is that the kids have fun playing baseball and softball.
That being said, we would once again like to ask that you consider sponsoring a team for Cheshire Youth Baseball and Softball. The league relies on our great sponsors to keep registration fees low and invest in our fields.
A Team Sponsorship is $350 which inlcudes a company name on back of shirt and a link to your website from ours as well as promotion opportunities.
