Player Team Assignment
When will players be added to teams and begin practices? Assignment of players to teams is based on the League Age of each player:
5-8 (Tee Ball & Farms) - Teams are formed and welcome emails have been sent. Managers should be contacting their teams to setup initial team meeting, and establishing practice times and location.
9-12 (Minors and Majors) - Managers have selected their players in a Draft for the Majors, Minor A, and Minor B divisions. Parents have been informed of their teams, and Managers will begin working on the first Team Meeting to gather medical release, and concussion acknowledgment forms. Practices typically begin in the first week of February depending upon release of the practice fields from The City of Benicia.
13-14 (50/70 Intermediate) - 50/70 is a newer division for BLL, and as a result we do not have a set schedule for the division. The goal is to have tryouts completed and teams formed by early-mid February so that the teams have the maximum time to practice. For more detail on the division, please contact Derek Trammell - VP Upper Division.
13-14 (Juniors) - Tryouts for 13-14 year olds are held in late January or early February. Once Tryouts are completed, Managers select their players in a Draft. Practices begin in late February or early March dependent upon release of the practice fields from The City of Benicia.
15-16 (Seniors) - The Senior team or teams is formed after the conclusion of High School tryouts in early February. Practices begin in late February or early March dependent upon release of the practice fields from The City of Benicia.
