Announcing our 2020 Fall Rec Baseball Sandlot Season!
Registration opens Saturday, July 11!
Each week your player will have one weekday clinic-style practice with the rest of the players in their age group, and one sandlot game each Sunday. Coaches will shuffle team rosters each week so that one week, buddies will play with each other, and the next, they'll play against each other. There are no league standings. Our focus is on fun and fundamentals!
Coaches registration is open. We need your help running practices and managing lineups! If you've never considered coaching before, this is a great opportunity to work as a team with some of the experienced coaches in the league to help you get your feet wet. The more help we can get, the better!
Please see below for the tryout dates that have been set for the 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, and 13U BBSC Select Baseball Teams that will play in the spring and summer of 2021. Unfortunately, BBSC will not field a 14U Select team next season. All players MUST register to participate in tryouts.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the beginning time for check in. Alternate (video) tryout dates may be available by appointment only, and must be completed PRIOR to the official tryout date. These appointments are based on evaluator availability. Please email email@example.com if you require an alternate date.
In order to keep you as informed as possible, I'm forwarding guidelines that were sent yesterday by Anne Arundel County Rec & Parks. The guidelines will take effect tomorrow (6/17). Their message can be found below in its entirety.
Please note that this will not change our plans for the baseball clinics scheduled for tonight and Thursday. However, we will use our "lessons learned" from this week's sessions to consider potential changes for the following week. Any changes will be sent via email to all registered participants so that each family may make an informed decision on whether they would like to participate.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
RETURN TO PLAY GUIDELINES
Based on Governor Hogan's Stage Two announcement on June 10, 2020 and guidance from the County Administration please find Rec and Parks guidelines for ‘Return to Play’ below. We are hopeful that with cooperation from all and compliance to the guidelines everyone will be safe and allow the progress that has been made to continue through the summer.
After further review of the Governor’s Maryland Strong: Road to Recovery and the Directive and Order Regarding Community, Recreational, Leisure, Cultural and Sporting Gatherings and Events provided by the State Secretary of Health:
Beginning Wednesday, June 17, 2020:
Practice and game play will resume normal operations
No longer a limit on outdoor capacity
Players/coaches should avoid or limit contact, such as:
high fives, team huddles, arms around players, snacks, sharing water bottles/drinks, etc.
Players on the sidelines should be spaced out. Players should place their bags, water, etc. at a reasonable distance apart and return to their bag during breaks. Each player should remain at their bag until they return to the field or leave. Important that coaches reinforce this throughout the training sessions.
We recommend all coaches, players, spectators should wear a mask until they enter the field of play and follow social distancing guidelines whenever possible.
When scheduling multiple teams on the same fields we recommend that you allow at least 30 minutes between the beginning and end of each practice.
Tournaments/Sporting Events that were scheduled for July and August prior to COVID-19 will be allowed to proceed as scheduled after JULY 1, 2020.
New or rescheduled events for July and August will be considered on a case by case basis.

The Broadneck Baseball and Softball Club is comprised of the families of more than 600 children playing organized youth baseball and softball on the Broadneck Peninsula. We are affiliated with the Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth organizations in baseball and with the Pony organization in softball.
Our goal at BBSC is to provide an opportunity for Broadneck-area children of all levels of ability and interest to play softball and baseball in a safe environment, emphasizing sportsmanship and fair play. Most importantly, we simply want to make softball and baseball a fun and memorable experience for all. We believe that coaches and parents attending games and practices should be role models for our child athletes and should always conduct themselves in a way that exhibits sportsmanship and admirable conduct toward other players, coaches, umpires and parents. We believe in teaching the sports of baseball and softball and have a major focus on teaching fundamentals in a way that makes the sport fun. We believe that BBSC is an important part of the local Broadneck community and we strive to bring the community together in positive ways. We honor local volunteers and businesses through our annual BBSC Community Service Award and we recognize those players who exhibit outstanding sportsmanship no matter what their batting average or whether their teams place first or last. We firmly believe that childhood is a magical time of life and that coaches and parents should never lose sight of the fact that our players are children playing a game that should always be fun.
