2018 DYC Baseball Ages 4-14

2018 Darien Youth Club Baseball 
The DYC Baseball program is designed to be fun for kids and families; a great learning experience and the opportunity for all ballplayers to enjoy the excitement and competition the sport has to offer. Younger leagues are umpired by young adults (aged 12+) and older leagues are umpired by teenagers and adults. Parents and Coaches must treat our umpires with absolute respect at all times. 

Our goal is to teach kids sportsmanship, how to play baseball, improve their skills and have fun doing it. Every age group team begins with two players, the son/daughter of the Manager & Assistant Coach. The remaining 10 spots are then filled in by two different ways based on the kids age level with the goal of balanced, competitive teams.

The 2018 season will depend on the weather but usually we like to get things started up in late April to early May and finish before the Fourth of July. 

2 games per week- 1 Saturday (games any time between 8am to 5pm) and 1 during the week (6pm start typical).

Practice times are similar to games, beginning 2 weeks prior to season with some week day practices as time/schedule allows.

IMPORTANT AGE REQUIREMENT CHANGES FOR 2018
The date for determining player eligibility had been moved from April 30th to August 31st.   The rule change will take effect at the start of the 2018 DYC Baseball season. By making our program younger, all players will be competing on a level playing field. This change will ensure all participants will play in their true age group.

2018 DYC Baseball Levels & Date of Birth (DOB) Requirements:
T Ball- Ages 4/5/6 (DOB RANGE  09/1/2011-08/31/2014)

National Rule Change Regarding Bats
Also, another of the most significant changes that will be in place for next year is the new safety standard for bats.  In 2018 for all age divisions Pinto and older, all players must use bats stamped with USA Bat. This change is being implemented by DYC as well as other towns for player safety. To be clear, no bats that were used in 2017 will be legal for use next year as the USA Bats only came to the market this fall.
