2018 Spring/Summer League – Look Who’s Coming (click here)

 

The BC Baseball League, is the oldest competitive baseball league in the Central Missouri area, established in 1993.  BC Baseball looks for teams which want to play competitive baseball at the highest level.  If this describes your team, BC Baseball is where you want to play. 

If you would like to play in the BC Baseball League, complete the Intent to Participate Form on the BC Baseball website. We suggest that teams should do this as soon as possible as league space is limited for the 2018 season.

Being a part of the league gives coaches and their team’s insurance, access to Twin Oaks fields for preseason practices, includes USSSA team registration, and the best competition in central Missouri.

The purpose of the BC Baseball League is to organize and promote youth baseball; to perpetuate the interest and the love of the game and to provide an opportunity for teams to compete in baseball at a higher level. The 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 postseason play.
