Lynnfield Little League Baseball Jamboree and Home Run Derby
Greetings Lynnfield Little League Families! While mother nature has played a cruel April Fool's Day joke on everyone, we're looking forward to the start of the season. This year, we will be holding a special event at the beginning of the season on April 30th at Newhall Field, so please save the date!
Teams from A League through Majors will be invited to participate in a Baseball Jamboree and perform skills such as base running and throwing. Players will get points for their efforts and the best players for each league for each event will receive awards.
In addition, teams from AAA league and Majors will participate in Lynnfield Little League's first Home Run Derby! The Home Run Derby will be a fun event but also serve as one of our fundraisers for the season. Individual participants will be required to commit to raise a pledge of at least $25 per player. Points will be awarded for all hits including Home Runs and the league will award the top three finishers.
Since this is a fundraiser, we'd like to reward those players that go the extra mile for the league. The top fundraising individual will receive a prize and the team that raises the most funds will also receive a prize! All AAA and Majors players will soon receive an email from 99pledges.com inviting them to participate in the Home Run Derby Challenge and they can easily solicit donations from family, friends and others. It should be great fun for the kids and a good fundraiser for the league! Participation in the Home Run Derby is not mandatory, but any AAA or Majors player may participate as long as he/she raises the minimum $25 fee.
Please stay tuned for more details, but for now save 4/30 on your calendar and the start time will be 12:00. There will be food available on site from the concession stands and we're looking forward to a great day!
As a reminder, unlike in past years we decided to move our annual golf event into the baseball season so we can have a great turnout versus delaying it until the end of the summer. Please join us at Oaks Country Club, for the annual Lynnfield Little League Golf Outing. The tournament begins at 1:30PM on Monday May 15th. We have a fun filled day and night planned for all! You do not play golf, that’s ok, come by at 6:00pm for our cocktail hour followed by dinner, raffles and more.
The cost for the day is $150.00 per player and includes golf with cart, dinner and a gift bag. If you just want to join us for dinner the cost is $30.00. Singles, twosomes and threesomes are welcome. All proceeds will benefit Lynnfield Little League.

The mission of Lynnfield Youth Baseball (Little League and Big Diamond) is to use the sport of baseball to help all our young players develop positive character traits and values that will aid success in the rest of their lives. Our organization has over 350 spring league games, 100 summer league games and 30 fall league games, giving nearly 500 young players the opportunity to learn and play the game of baseball.
Over the past couple of years the town has done some great work at our fields but even with these investments, our league is still in need of many upgrades including new equipment (catchers gear, batting helmets, etc.), grandstands for fans, scoreboards, batting tunnel netting, practice pitcher’s mounds, etc. This past year alone the league spent significant dollars in fencing in dugouts adding a new batting cage and most recently investing $10,000 to completely re-sod the entire infield at Newhall Park. All without asking for a major fundraiser.
So in 2016, we are reaching out to all of you to pass our message along to your companies, local business, etc. and ask for their support for one of our biggest goals....Building a Press Box at Newhall Park! This will add to make our park a premier location to host not only in town games but tournament games as well.
In the attached brochure we have detailed out various sponsorships available including the opportunity to have your company banner positioned prominently on one or all of our fields and banner ads on our website. You can select a bundled offering, or pick one option a-la-carte. No matter how big or small you can contribute, our kids will greatly appreciate your support.

Lynnfield Baseball uses a modified version of Little League International's age based rule for division of play for the spring season. The age based division of play will incorporate the Little League International age chart. (See Little League International Age Chart in the Document Section on the website or on the Main Page)
League Age for the upcoming season:
Sr. Big Diamond
Please note: Although you may see an overlap of ages in different divisions, your child will be placed in the appropriate division decided by the Board and Managers based on the child's ability to play within that division.
In order to create parity in the team selection process, all players League Age 8 thru 12 (excluding those who played in the Major Division the prior year as they will automatically be placed in Majors again) must attend a tryout. Failure to attend a tryout will result in the player being placed in lowest Division based on their league age in which they are eligible.
Sr. Big Diamond Division will hold their player selection process. All 15 & 16 Year old players will be placed in Big Diamond Division.
Big Diamond Division will hold their player selection process. All 13 & 14 Year old players will be placed in the Senior League Division.
Major League Division will hold their player selection process. At this draft, all League Age 12 year olds will automatically make the Major League as this is a rule from Little League International, which Lynnfield Baseball operates under for its spring season. The managers will then fill out their rosters with any league age 11 or 10 year olds that they select. Once the Major draft is completed......
.....The Triple A Division will hold their player selection process. Any league age 11 & 10 year old that did not get selected for the Majors will automatically be selected to a team in the Triple A division through a player selection process. Any 9 year old that is capable of playing in Triple A will be selected to round out the rosters spots. (Let's say Triple A needs 72 players in order to have 6 teams of 12 per team. Let's also assume there are only 65 who are league age 11 & 10. This means the Triple A Division needs 7 more players to get to 72. Provided that the Board and managers feel as though seven 9-year old players are capable of playing in Triple A, then those seven kids would be selected to a Triple A teams to fill out the roster spots). Once this draft is completed......
......The Double A Division will hold their player selection process. Any league age 9 year old that did not make the Triple A Division, will automatically be placed in the Double A Division. Any league age 8 year old that that is capable of playing in the Double A will be selected to round out the rosters spots as described in the Triple A section. Once this draft is completed.....
.....The Single A Division will hold their player selection process. Any league age 8 year old that did not make the Double A Division will automatically be placed in the Single A Division along with all league age 7 year olds.
Tee Ball Division will hold their player selection process. All league age 5 & 6 year old players will be placed into the Tee Ball Division.
If you have any questions on this process please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Pledge beyond our mission
Lynnfield Baseball League aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high-quality experience, in which every athlete:
• Is coached using the 3 principles of a Double-Goal Coached model:
1. Redefining ‘winner’
2. Filling emotional tanks
3. Honoring the game
(These principles are explained in the "Hey Coach" section, click the tab).
• Has fun playing the game.
• Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance.
• Learns "life lessons" that have value beyond the playing field.
• Learns the skills, tactics and strategies of the game and improves as a player.
Lynnfield Baseball League recognizes coaches most directly make this possible, so they will be provided with the tools to succeed as Double-Goaled Coaches. We are committed to creating a culture in which coaches, parents, fans, umpires and athletes work together to achieve this goal.
"Associate with those who help you believe in yourself. "
