2023 Inner-City Baseball League - FAQ's

Jun. 09, 2023

Hey folks,

As we get ready to start the 2023 version of the Miramichi Inner-City Baseball League, we thought it would be helpful if we answered some common questions you may have:


Q: When does it start? Where and what time?

A: Our first session is scheduled for Monday, June 12th at 6:00pm.  All sessions will be held at the Gretna Green Fields.  Sessions will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Please note for the June 12th session, all players and parent should report to the Upper field (closer to the school) for a quick program orientation session.


Q: What does a player need?

A:  All players should bring a glove, hat, water bottle, batting helmet and bat to each session.  Appropriate footwear is also needed.  We do recommend rubber soled cleats but sneakers are acceptable as well.  Also, please ensure players wear pants (no shorts).  Players will also be provided a Twins hat and team shirt in the next few weeks.


Q: What does the program structure look like?

A: This year, we will be adopting a 50/50 model where 50% of the time will be in developmental practice drills and 50% of time will be dedicated to games.  The first 2 weeks will be focused solely on development/practice/concepts before introducing game nights.  A full schedule will be provided via e-mail next week.  This year, we are focusing the drills on fun, engaging actions for the players.  We also feel a more balanced development model will help the kids grow their skills and stay engaged.  We have also made several changes to the game night format which will improve the experience for the players.  Most of these changes have been taken from the Baseball New Brunswick approved structure for recreational leagues.  The changes we have made to the program this season are all in an effort to create a fun and sustainable development program for kids aged 10-13.


Q: Are you in need of volunteers?

A: YES.  This program needs 10-12 volunteers in order to run properly and without impact to the structure.  We have had some volunteers step up already and are in need of 5-6 more.  If you are interested in volunteering, you can bring it up at Monday's orientation.  If the program does not have a sufficient number of volunteers, we will need to re-examine the structure to ensure the program can run smoothly.   No previous baseball experience is necessary and all drills and plans are provided by the program coordinator.
