Baseball Evaluations - 2019
Posted Dec 8, 2016

Every Spring, Georgetown Baseball holds an evaluation day in March for our grade 2-6 players who will play in our Spring Farm, Minor and Major League programs. That day is scheduled for March 23, 2019 at New England Premier Sportsplex, Route One - Danvers. Players will be evaluated for fielding, outfield, hitting, and pitching.  Our regular-season teams will be formed based upon these evaluations and the summer coaches may take this data into consideration when forming the summer teams.  Players should bring their bats, gloves and helmets- please use sneakers instead of cleats.

The schedule is as follows:

2nd Grade- sign-in 8:00am evals start at 8:30am

3rd Grade- sign-in 8:30am evals start at 9:00am

4th Grade- sign-in at 9:00am evals start at 9:30am

5th Grade- sign-in at 9:30am evals start at 10:00am

6th Grade- sign-in at 10:00am evals start at 10:30am

This is our eighth full year being affiliated with the Cal Ripken League.  What this means to Georgetown Baseball is an opportunity for some very competitive summer tournaments for our 8-12 years old teams.   A few years ago year we changed the process and criteria in choosing our summer teams.  We will create our Summer Tournament Teams sooner than in years past.  The first step in formulating these teams will begin on March 23, with our annual evaluation day.  The process continues with input and recommendations from regular season coaches once the season is under way.

Historically, the minors and majors teams in Georgetown have needed to have a certain number of "call up players" and/or "permanent play up players" identified to round out their rosters.  This will be done based on evaluations and more information for 2019 can be found at http://www.georgetownathletics.com/baseballpolicies

See you on the field!

NEW 2018 ITBL BAT REGULATIONS:

ITBL recently voted to adopt the new USA bat regulations along with the other major, national youth baseball leagues (Little League, Cal Ripken, etc.).  Beginning in January, 2018, all ITBL players must use a bat with the new "USA Baseball" stamp (Not USSSA) and bats without this stamp will not be legal.  Bats with the 1.15 Bat Performance Factor (BPF) stamp will not be legal after January 2018.  

Essentially, the new bat standard ensures that the exit velocity and performance of the bats closely mimics that of wooden bats.  This is done to preserve the long-term integrity of the game along with increasing safety for pitchers and infielders.  As this standard is relatively new, bat companies are in the process of releasing 2018 USA Baseball stamped bats.  Some companies released their first line of bats in September and others are slated to release new bats throughout the year.

Our players in grades 3+ participate in a league called "Inter-town Baseball League" (ITBL).  All players in grades 3+ will need to use a USA stamped bat this coming season.  

Note: This does not apply at all to teeball or in-town grade 1/2 farm players.

Thank you!

  • 7 important MLB trends to watch in 2019

    Wed, 27 Feb 2019 14:14:00 EDT The game is changing, perhaps more quickly than ever. Forget comparing the sport to what it looked like in the 1960s or the '80s; the game has changed massively in just the last half-decade. Remember, just five years ago, we were all talking about the lack of power ,and no one was talking about launch angle or spin rate. Things are slightly different now.
