We are actively preparing for another fun and memorable season of baseball and softball for the youth of Branchburg and would like the community's assistance in attracting sponsorships of all levels to allow us to continue to provide an exemplary program.
Please take a look at the link below. Talk to your personal circle (businesses, friends, acquaintances, other organizations) about the benefits of sponsorship with the BBC.
The BBC is happy to announce that we are once again able to offer Winter Training at BSC for our players registered for rec baseball in 2018. A total of 9 winter training clinics will be held at BSC in March for boys and girls registered to play in the 2018 In-Town Rookie, Minors and American divisions (Grades Pre-K to 4th). All clinics will be led by BSC instructors. The clinics will focus on hitting, throwing, base running, and fielding and will be a good way for the players to improve their baseball skills before the spring season begins in April.

USA Baseball has implemented new bat regulations starting with the 2018 rec season. These new regulations affect all players in our recreation baseball and travel baseball programs. For the 2018 rec season the BBC will provide 2 USA Baseball approved bats in the team equipment bags of our Rookie, Minors, American and National league teams.
Go to the following link for more information from Bath Ruth Baseball regarding the new bats regulations, and a link to approved bats for 2018.
Similar to 2017, registration will be handled according to the player's current grade level. Leagues will also be formed according to the players grade level.
