The BC Baseball League, in its 18th year, works with coach-picked teams to provide the highest level of competitive baseball in Central Missouri. Affiliated with USSSA Baseball as a sanctioning organization, the League schedules games in Columbia at the league’s Twin Oaks Sports Complex, in Columbia at the Boone County Fairgrounds Atkins Complex, in Jefferson City, in Taos at Countryside Park and, potentially, other locations. Teams and players in this league come from all over Central Missouri, but mostly from Boone, Cole, Callaway and Audrain counties.
The purpose of the BC Baseball League, a non-profit organization, is to organize and promote youth baseball, to perpetuate the interest and the love of the game and to provide an opportunity for teams and players to compete in baseball at a higher level. The current affiliation with USSSA Baseball provides an opportunity for league members to qualify for state and national championship play. The league members qualify as teams, not as end-of-the season all-star squads, for this post-season play.
For the 2011 Spring/Summer Season, the league will offer divisions/games in the following age groups:
14 & Under, 13 & Under, 12 & Under, 11 & Under, 10 & Under, 9 & Under, 8 & Under Player Pitch, and new for the 2010 season will be 8 & Under Coach Pitch. Again, the 2011 season, will have individual age group scheduling (with as few crossover games vs. the younger/older age group as possible, providing there are enough teams for each age group). Again for 2011, the 14 & Under age group will play with 90-foot base distances and 60-foot-6 pitching distance.
League games for all age groups, except the 8U division, will begin in the first week of April (the week of April 5-7 ). The 8U Coach Pitch Division will start league games beginning in May. The 8U Player Pitch will also begin league play in May and will be paired against any available 8U teams and 9U teams.
