The 10/11 All Stars lost to Ellington 9-8 in the Section 2 championship game.  Their season ends with an 11-1 record and two titles (District 7 and Division 3).  A great season by the team, coaches, and parents.

Congratulations again to all of our All Star teams - 9/10, 10/11, and 11/12 - for another successful season representing Newington.  With our great players and coaches, we fully expect to have another successful season in 2015.

All Stars Update!
by posted 07/21/2014
 

The 10/11 All Stars went 3-0 to capture the 1st ever Division 3 championship.  The team beat East Lyme and then Coginchaug twice including a final 14-4 victory to win the title.  The team now plays Ellington (Division 4 winner) in a one-game Section 2 championship game on Wednesday 7/23 5:30pm at Seamster Park in East Hampton.  The winner of that game advances to the State Championship.

 

The 11/12 All Stars made it to the Division 3 championship where they fell to Madison 8-5.  The team had another great All Star run and should be proud of their efforts and accomplishments.  Congratulations, boys!

Fall Baseball

Newington Little League Fall Baseball

Fall Program Overview

Newington Little League Fall Baseball (NLLFB) is designed to build skills at all levels.  Our goal is to provide age and skill appropriate instruction and competition for players from ages 7 – 13.  A player’s age is calculated based on their 2015 baseball age (age as of 4/30/2015).  If a player was baseball 10 during the current (2014) season, that player is considered baseball 11 for NLLFB.  NLLFB is designed to prepare players for the level they will play at in 2015.

Our ability to run the fall programs described below is 100% dependent on the number of players registering.  If we do not have enough players for a particular program, that program will not be run.

Every effort will be made to accommodate ALL players wishing to play baseball in the fall however for the 50/70 and Transition League programs it may be necessary to hold try outs.  Try outs will only be held if we have too many registrants for a single team but not enough to field multiple teams.

Fall baseball programs run from September through October.

Available Programs

NLLFB will have the following programs available for the 2014 fall season:

Program Details

Please read the following program descriptions carefully and evaluate your player’s skill fit for each program.  NLLFB’s goal is to provide a fun environment where a player can improve their baseball skills at their pace.  Placing a player in a program where they will be overmatched results not only in a frustrated player but significantly reduces the player’s ability to improve.  Instruction will be given at program-appropriate levels and players are expected to have the minimum skills required to succeed and grow in the program they choose.

Junior

The Junior program is a local program (little-to-no travel) with an emphasis on skills building.  Players are assigned teams and will play games.  In addition to a weekly team practice, there will be one program-wide (all kids participate) skill clinic per week focusing all participants on a single skill (e.g., throwing, hitting, base running, etc.).  The Junior program is designed to help players transition from T-ball into the Minors and for players already in the Minors build skills.

Games will be held on weekends against the other in-town Junior program teams.  An occasional game may be scheduled against another local town (e.g., West Hartford, Wethersfield, etc.) in order to ensure a reasonable number of games.

This program is targeted at players age 7 – 9 (as of 4/30/2015).

Instructional

The Instructional program is a local program (little-to-no travel) with an emphasis on skills building.  Players are assigned teams and will play games.  In addition to a weekly team practice, there will be one program-wide (all kids participate) skill clinic per week focusing all participants on a single skill (e.g., throwing, hitting, base running, etc.).

Games will be held on weekends against the other in-town Instructional program teams.  An occasional game may be scheduled against another local town (e.g., West Hartford, Wethersfield, etc.) in order to ensure a reasonable number of games.

This program is targeted at players age 9 – 11 (as of 4/30/2015).

Little League

The Little League program is the same as the Spring and Summer seasons.  There will be no program wide skills clinics – all practices will be at the team level.  Games will held be on weekends against both other Newington teams as well as surrounding local towns.

If there is enough interest, one or more travel teams can be created to play in the Central CT Fall Baseball League based in Wallingford.  This is a travel team playing games throughout central CT.

Twelve year olds are eligible to play in the Little League program if they do not want to play in the 50/70 program however, this program is focused on development for ages 9 – 11.  Please use your judgment in determining where to place your twelve-year-old player.

This program is targeted at players age 9 – 12 (as of 4/30/2015).

50/70

The 50/70 program begins the transition from Little League to the big diamond.  50/70 refers to the distance of the pitchers mound to home (50 feet vs. 46 in Little League) and the distances between the bases (70 feet vs. 60 in Little League).  The rules in this program are closer to “real” baseball rules.  Runners can take leads and steal at any point (unlike in Little League where leads are not permitted and the runner cannot leave the base until the ball gets to the batter).  This introduces a new set of skills required for both base runners and pitchers.

This program will be a travel program with the intent to enter one or more teams in the Central CT Fall Baseball League.  We may also play games against surrounding local towns.

This program is targeted at players age 12 (as of 4/30/2015).

Transition League

The Transition League is for current (2014) 12-year-old players only. It is designed to help transition players from Little League to the big diamond where the pitchers mound is 60 feet from home and the distance between the bases is 90 feet. Rules for the Transition League are similar to the 50/70 League (leading/stealing).

This is a travel program with the intent to enter one or more teams in the Central CT Fall Baseball League.  We may also play a few games against surrounding local towns.

This program is only for players age 13 (as of 4/30/2015).

Projected Costs

Costs for NLLFB programs will range from $50 - $100, depending on the program.  The heavy travel teams will cost more than the in-town and local travel teams.  Prices will be finalized for each program when formal registration opens in August.

Newington Baseball Golf Fundraiser - August 19th
by posted 07/14/2014
 

 

NHS Baseball Booster Club is hosting their First Annual golf tournament!  It will be held at Indian Hill Country Club in Newington.  It’s a great course and an excellent opportunity to play it if you’ve never had the chance.

This will be a big fundraiser for NHS, next year is a Florida year (the team takes a spring trip to FL every other year)!  This event is a great way to support the NHS program as many of our own kids will eventually play ball at NHS.  

Here are ways you can participate:

  1. Golfers ($125/person) – it’s a scramble format, so you don’t have to be a great golfer.  Even if you don’t golf, I’m sure you know somebody that does.  There also will be contests such as longest drive and closest to pin.  Please try and get a few people to play.  (contact Pete Donahue )
  2. Tee Box Sponsors ($100/sign) – If you own a local business, or know somebody that does, this is a great way to show your support and a big part of the fundraising effort.  (Contact Jill LeClair - )
  3. Raffle prizes – we need to have lots of prizes to make our raffle a success.  Restaurant Gift cards, tickets to events or really just about anything makes for a good raffle prize.  (Contact Capri Frank - )

Please see our Documents page off the left menu for Golfer Registration form and Sponsorship form.

Thank you for your support!
