Updated Monday July 31, 2017 by Northampton Baseball & Softball.

Typically appropriate for children in: Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade

Prerequisite: players have 1-2 years of T-Ball experience


Northampton Baseball League is a collaboration between Northampton Little League and Northampton Cal Ripken and is open to players aged 6, 7 and 8 in the spring 2016 season.

NBL will offer formal instruction and player development programs to help children understand, appreciate and ultimately love the game of baseball.

The working goal of NBL is the formation of one baseball league in our city. As the initial group of rookie players age, they will continue to play for NBL until ultimately NLL and NCR are phased out and we continue with one league in our city.

Participation in this league will not be limited to residents of Northampton.  All players covered by the NLL or NCR charters will be allowed to play.

Our expectation is for this league to produce terrific ball players, a quality experience, and to continue to elevate Northampton baseball, across the district, state, and region.
