A NOTE FROM YOUR BLASTBALL CONVENER
Thank you for your interest in the 2017 Blastball season with Royal York Baseball League! Below you will find preliminary information about the 2017 season. All players born in 2012 and 2013 are eligible to play Blastball this season.
ABOUT THE GAME
Blastball is designed as an entry level to baseball. There are approximately 7-8 players per team, and the focus is on having fun while learning the basics: throwing, catching, fielding, hitting and team play. Soft bats and baseballs are used, and the field is set up with one base in first base position, and a Tee for players to hit from.
Blastball runs on Tuesdays at 6:30pm and Saturdays at 10:00am, each for an hour combining practice and game. The season runs from the beginning of May until the end of June. For the 2017 season, it is expected that these games will take place at Castlebar Park, which is west of Royal York Road between Norseman and the Queensway. Please note that this information is preliminary, and may change based on final registration numbers and diamond allocations.
PRE-SEASON CLINICS – All players and coaches will have the opportunity, at no additional cost, to take part in a pre-season clinic run by Pro Teach Baseball. These will take place around the end of April or beginning of May, with more details to follow in April. For more information about Pro Teach, please visit https://proteach.net/
COACHING VOLUNTEERS – RYBL is the best youth baseball association in Etobicoke because of the dedication of its parent Coach volunteers. Please consider expressing your interest in coaching or assisting on your child’s registration application, as only through its many parent volunteers is this League capable of operation!
I look forward to seeing you on the field this spring, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
