8. How to Register: All players will register through this website. Registration will open 11/1/2015. The registration fee amount depends on the age group. There is an early bird period until 11:45PM on 11//29/2015. After that, regular registration fees will apply until end of 01/31/2015. Starting 02/01/2015, a late penalty of $7 applies for anyone registering and we will continue to accept registrations as long as we have space available.

9. Player Ratings / Tryouts: In the 7YO to 12YO division, players are drafted on teams by coaches in February 2015. To conduct a draft, all our players must have a player rating. This rating is created through one of two ways: (1) player assessment from 2015; or (2) a player assessment workout (often referred to as a try out) by the league which will be held in February 2015. For players from 2014, we may or may not have a usable player rating from a past coach as not all coaches provided player exit ratings or players may be moving up a division (from coach pitch to player pitch) and the player rating is no longer applicable. We will notify parents of which parents can skip the tryouts.

10. No Player Rating or Missed Tryouts: For players not attending the try out who do not have a player rating, if they are protected players, they will be given a first round rating. If they are not protected players and did not attend a tryout or have a player rating, they will either be rated by the league based on their knowledge of the player or they will be randomly drawn from a hat at the end of the draft.

11. Draft Process: From the player ratings, players will be sorted from first to last. In a draft, each 8YO to 12YO team may protect up to four players. For the 7YOs, because this would be there first year for a draft, coaches will protect six players. Coaches must identify their protected players prior to a tryout, which is well before the actual draft. Protected players will determine the draft order for each team. Each protected player is placed in a draft round depending upon their ranking. As an example, assuming there are 110 players, we would have 10 teams with 11 players on each team. If a team has three protected players rated 3rd, 18th and 46th, those players would have to be selected as follows:



1st Round (Players rated 1-11) must select 3rd rated protected player as 1st round draft pick.

2nd Round (Players rated 12-22) must select 18th rated protected player as 2nd round draft pick.

3rd Round (Players rated 23-33) may select any undrafted, unprotected player in any round.

4th Round (Players rated 34-44) may select any undrafted, unprotected player in any round.

5th Round (Players rated 45-55) must select 46th player as 5th round pick.

and so on.

The Brentwood Ball Club provides an opportunity for kids up to 18 years old to have a place to play organized baseball in the city of Brentwood . As the provider of baseball to the city of Brentwood, the Brentwood Ball Club League must have at least 60% of their registered players in the 13-year old to 18-year old age divisions residing in the city of Brentwood and must have 85% of our registered players residing in Williamson County. We pay the City of Brentwood a fee ($25) per player that does not pay the city of Brentwood property taxes and pays an additional fee ($10) for players outside Williamson County that do not pay Williamson County taxes. When players register, this fee is collected as it applies per player.

Where Games Are Played:
Our home field is Granny White Park (located behind Brentwood Middle & High Schools). We use fields #2 and #3 for home games and practices. We attempt to schedule as many games as possible for the 13-14YOs on field #3 except for the 14U Open teams. The 14YO to 18YO open type teams will use field #2. It is also possible we could use the Woodland Middle School field for team practices. We will schedule games with other leagues, usually WNSL, Heritage, Franklin and Grassland. As such, players will travel to other ball parks but we do try to limit this travel to the weekends.
