Number of teams will depend on the number of kids that tryout. We will be playing teams within District 6: South Milwaukee, Oak Creek, Lakeland, Felix Mantilla, Franklin, Greenfield and any other BLL teams. 16 teams participated in the District Inter-League play this season. Games will be played primarilyMonday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s, approximately 18 games in the Season.

    We will be participating in District and State All-Stars with a chance to go to Regional’s and beyond. And then, the following year as 14 year olds, do it again in the Junior and Titan programs on the big field (60/90).

    We are looking forward to a fun Season in 2017!

    Letter from League President - Intermediate Division Forming

    Burlington Little League Families:

    Despite temps in the 30’s and a good deal of rain, the 2016 Burlington Little League (BLL) baseball season is well underway. Kids that have been in the BLL program for a decade are finishing up their LL playing careers on the Junior Field, while first year players experience T-ball and teamwork for the first time at Branen field.

    In addition to the joy every new baseball season brings, I have some exciting news to announce for 2017. The BLL Long Range Planning Committee recommended the formation of an Intermediate Division, otherwise known as 50/70 baseball. For those of you unfamiliar with 50/70 baseball, it is for boys and girls, ages 12 – 13, who want to play on a larger field than the majors, but slightly smaller field than high school baseball. The BLL Board met to discuss the recommendation and unanimously supported the formation of this division.

    The Intermediate division will be a feeder program to our Junior Division and older Titan travel teams. The BLL Intermediate division will join the District 6 program, which in 2016 formed a league of approximately 16 teams from five local Little League communities. Tryouts for the Intermediate and Major league teams will take place later this summer. Additional details will be available soon.

    It is great to be able to offer programs like Intermediate baseball to families at a fraction of the cost of what many other community clubs charge. It is only made possible thanks to the generosity of our league’s volunteers and sponsors.

    Each month at the league board meetings, we review and discuss suggestions received from

    families on how to improve the BLL program. We like to refer to this as the, “Can this be done” list. At the top of the list were:

    • Improved lighting in the batting cages
    • Shorter batting tees for the four year olds
    • Repair foul ball netting
    • Cleaner public restroom facilities

    I am pleased to report that the batting cage lighting was upgraded by Trak Electric and shorter batting tees were purchased. The other two projects will require BLL to work directly with the City of Burlington to accomplish. The BLL has maintained a terrific working relationship with the city over the years. City officials share our belief that Branen Field and the Hintz Complex are wonderful facilities everyone should be proud of. I am confident that progress will soon be made on the netting and bathroom issues.

    It has been my honor to serve as President of the Burlington Little League. I have so much respect for the league volunteers past and present, the league sponsors and city officials, who made affordable youth baseball a tradition in our community over 50 years ago. We have accomplished so much but there is more to be done. Let’s keep the tradition of affordable community based baseball going!

    Best wishes and many thanks to the families, volunteers and sponsors that make this program what it is.

    David Gill

    President – Burlington Little League

    Letter from Burlington Little League President

    BLL families and community at large,
     
    Prior to the first pitch being thrown this season, I wanted to share with you my thoughts and feelings about the Burlington Little League and what it offers to our community. 
     
    I have been involved with the Burlington Little League (BLL) as a player, coach and board member for over 30 years and feel fortunate to see kids I coached now coaching their own kids.  I’m sure you share my joy at witnessing first hand the fun and excitement baseball brings to children in our community. It is a wonderful gift.  While the success our program has enjoyed these past few years, including teams advancing to Indianapolis and playing for a shot at a National Championship, is rewarding, I personally experience the same sense of fulfillment watching a T-ball player run the wrong way after hitting the ball off the tee and then learning the correct way to run. 
     
    In 2014, the BLL collaborated with the City of Burlington to construct the first T-ball field in the program’s history at Sunset Park.  This field was built to a scale that is appropriate for girls and boys ages 4 – 6.  This past fall, we made improvements to the fields located at the Hintz Complex.  New sod was installed, the infields were filled with new field mix, and two new scoreboards and PA systems were added.
    These additions and improvements were made thanks in generous part to donations from volunteers and local businesses who share our passion for youth baseball and want to improve the facilities and ensure their use for future generations.  It’s important to note that no taxpayer dollars were used in these projects. 
     
    We currently have over 420 kids in the program that make up 40 teams. The league requires hundreds of parent volunteers and a board of directors that share a common vision - to implant firmly in the children of our community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority.  This program, along with other community-based programs, is something we should all treasure and work to keep going. 
     
    The BLL has enjoyed a great working relationship with the Mayor, Director of Public Works and city Common Council.  If you are currently involved with the BLL, on behalf of the board of directors, I thank you and want you to know that we are doing our very best to keep the tradition of affordable, accessible youth baseball in Burlington alive and well. During the months of April, May, June and July, the Hintz and Branen fields are nearly 100% filled with practices and games, but we are always willing to offer families the opportunity to PLAY BALL.  If you are not a member of the BLL, and would be interested in utilizing the facilities, I ask that you contact either myself or our Field Scheduling Coordinator.  Our contact information can be found at www.bllbaseball.com.
     
    Best wishes and looking forward to seeing everyone at the ballpark.
     
    David Gill
    President – BLL
