First, thank you so much for taking the time to complete the survey sent a few nights ago. The response has been overwhelming. It’s provided some very valuable feedback that will be instrumental in planning how we’ll play baseball and softball this season.
Unfortunately, as the initial date we hoped to begin play has come, we will have to extend the suspension of the season. This decision is in accordance with County Rec & Parks Department policy, which has closed the parks for permitted activities until further notice.
Until we are confident that teams can play in a safe environment, we remain patient and hopeful that the first pitch is just around the corner!
We hope this email finds you well and we thank you for your continued patience. As promised, our Board of Directors continues to evaluate our status and all guidance set by the state of Maryland, Anne Arundel County, and the Recreation & Parks Department. While the start date of the season hangs in limbo, it’s become quite obvious that this season will be different than seasons past.
In the survey below, we hope that you’ll describe your ballplayer’s interest in participating, should any of the stated changes be required to our 2020 season. In order to best serve you, we need your feedback!
Please see below for the tryout dates that have been set for the 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, and 14U BBSC Select Baseball Teams that will play in the spring and summer of 2021. Not all of the age groups have final confirmation of their dates - we will update this document and publish those dates as soon as possible.
It is mandatory for players to attend both days of the tryout or attend the single make-up day. Emails will be sent to all candidates, by the head coach of the respective age group within 14 days of the completion of the tryouts, notifying each candidate of their result of the tryout.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the beginning time for check in.
The “Alternate Tryout - 1 Day Only” is the date that players would use if they will miss either Tryout Day 1 or 2. The “Alternate Tryout” date is intentionally scheduled prior to Tryout Day’s 1 and 2 (for the 9-12U age groups).
The Broadneck Baseball and Softball Club is comprised of the families of more than 600 children playing organized youth baseball and softball on the Broadneck Peninsula. We are affiliated with the Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth organizations in baseball and with the Pony organization in softball.
Our goal at BBSC is to provide an opportunity for Broadneck-area children of all levels of ability and interest to play softball and baseball in a safe environment, emphasizing sportsmanship and fair play. Most importantly, we simply want to make softball and baseball a fun and memorable experience for all. We believe that coaches and parents attending games and practices should be role models for our child athletes and should always conduct themselves in a way that exhibits sportsmanship and admirable conduct toward other players, coaches, umpires and parents. We believe in teaching the sports of baseball and softball and have a major focus on teaching fundamentals in a way that makes the sport fun. We believe that BBSC is an important part of the local Broadneck community and we strive to bring the community together in positive ways. We honor local volunteers and businesses through our annual BBSC Community Service Award and we recognize those players who exhibit outstanding sportsmanship no matter what their batting average or whether their teams place first or last. We firmly believe that childhood is a magical time of life and that coaches and parents should never lose sight of the fact that our players are children playing a game that should always be fun.
