BHS Players - BLL Wants You!
BHS Baseball Tryouts are being conducted the week of February 9th, but we understand that space on those teams is limited, and want to be sure our local players know that should you not reach your goal this year, our league has a place for you.
BLL Juniors and Seniors programs have a proven track record of training players and preparing them for their next tryout opportunity. Moreover, we have a record of success with players who choose to participate and train with us during the Spring Season. A significant number of players have gone on to reach their goal for participating in BHS baseball and beyond by taking advantage of the training and game experience opportunities offered through BLL.
Freshman, JV, and Varsity coaches have information for you that provides special pricing for BHS program players. Check in with your coaches to get more information, or contact our VP of Senior League Scott Burford at firstname.lastname@example.org

Players should arrive 20 to 30 minutes early to get warmed up and be fully prepared for the tryout session.

Juniors bats are big barrel, and the league does not have extra bats in these sizes so players should plan on either bringing a bat or borrowing from other players. Helmets will be available for use.

Juniors, Seniors, Big League (Age 13- 18) - Registration is Open!
Thirteen, Fourteen, and Fifteen year olds, don't miss the opportunity to play at historic Fitzgerald Field. We will have registration open up until Juniors Tryouts which are scheduled for Saturday February 28th, 2015.
Over the years this has proven to be an exceptional program for our local teenage players, many of whom use the Juniors / Seniors season as a warm of for the competition intense summer travel ball tournament and showcase season.
High School Tryouts Many of our High School age players tryout for the various levels of Benicia High baseball.
BLL fully supports that effort and encourages all players to tryout for BHS baseball.
In the even that a player does not make the BHS team - Benicia Little League still has a place for those players to play, work on their game, and prepare for tryouts the following year.
Special BHS Tryout fees will be made available so that any player who participates in BHS Tryouts will receive the Early Bird Discount of $50 off the regular season fee.

Changes to Little League Age Policy for Spring 2015
Beginning with the 2015 season, Little League International has changed the basis for the calculation of League Age.
All players born after 12/31/2005 will now have their league age calculated based on January 1st of their birth year. Players who were born before 12/31/2005 will be grandfathered in and have their league age calculated on the previous May 1st date formula.
You may view the new league age calculation matrix (2015 Little League Age Chart) here or visit www.littleleague.org for more information.

You may also test the changes by using the League Age calculator on our website under Registration Information.
Notice - Tee Ball 4 Division Cancelled
Because of the change to Little Leagues policy for age, the majority of Tee Ball 4 children will be 3 years of age for much if not all the season..
As a result, Benicia Little League has chosen not to have a Tee Ball 4 league for the 2015 Spring Season.
We know this will be a disappointment to some families, but the Board believes that it is in the best interest of players and the player experience for the start of Baseball to be when the player reaches at least 4 years of age.
