Baseball

Franklin High School Varsity Field

There are many organizations that run baseball leagues, programs, and clinics in Town.  Below you will find a list of all the programs and the many opportunities for every age group. Not all programs on the list are run through the Town of Franklin Recreation Department, but we thought it was important to have an all encompassing list for your convenience.  If you have questions about a specific program, don't hesitate to email Director of Recreation, Ryan Jette (rjette@franklinma.gov).

Pee Wee Baseball (ages 4-6):

The Town of Franklin runs the Pee Wee Baseball program within the Recreation Department's spring program brochure.  The program registration starts Feb 5 and the actual start of practices will be April 13-June 15.  Practices and games are held at Fletcher Field, near the basketball/hockey courts every Saturday and Tuesday evening with make ups on Thursday evening. Registration starts on February 5, 2024 

Suggested Equipment:  We recommend smaller baseball gloves that fit properly.  Baseball bats sized 24"-26" for this age group. Larger bats tends to compromise hitting mechanics.  Baseball helmets in size 6 3/8-7 1/8 youth/junior (which meet NOCSAE standards).  Soccer or baseball molded cleats work perfectly fine.  Optional equipment:  Backpack bag with bat sleeve to hold bats.  Baseball pants sized YXS, YS or YM.

We will provide a game shirts and hats. If you need to contact us about Pee Wee Baseball, please email (franklinrecreation@franklinma.gov)
