Mission Statement

The Bay State Braves program is designed to help youth players develop important fundamental skills and gain a deeper understanding of the game of baseball. We are looking for athletes who want to learn how to play the game the right way; through consistent effort and a commitment to not only their own success, but the success of their teammates as well.

Our Goals as a Program
  • help your child develop as a baseball player, both mentally and physically

  • develop a competitive team that represents the hard work each and every player puts forth during practices and games

  • begin to develop a sense of accountability and responsibility for one’s actions particularly in a team environment

  • show youth players how to uphold a strong sense of sportsmanship with our coaches leading by example

  • to be able to look back over a season and see that everyone has grown not only as baseball players but as members of society as well

Our Evaluation Process
  • our unique approach to evaluating new players removes much of the stress and hit or miss characteristics of large-group tryouts

  • each evaluation is booked for half an hour so that the coach can answer any questions the player or parent may have while assessing skills

  • evaluations consist of playing catch, fielding ground balls, hitting, and if the player is a pitcher or catcher we may ask them to throw a few pitches or catch a few throws

Practice and Game Locations
Our indoor practice facility is located at DC Baseball Academy (DCBA) in Framingham.  For our home fields we use Sudbury, Wayland, and Wellesley town fields.  Almost all of the games we play are local with only a few extended drives per season per team.
