Boyertown Bears American Legion baseball team
The Boyertown Bears American Legion baseball team is the marquee travel baseball program for Boyertown School District residents. The program is sponsored by American Legion Post #471. Our organization fields a team in the late spring/early summer and a team in the fall.
The spring season team has tryouts in early March and regular season games starting after the conclusion of the high school baseball season. Weekend practices and scrimmages are typically held during the months of April and May. The spring team participates in the American Legion baseball program, playing in the Berks County League. Home games are played at historic Bear Stadium. Eligible players will be 16 to 19 years old on December 31 of the calendar year that they are on the team.
The fall season is used as a developmental season, in preparation for the following spring season. Tryouts occur in August and the team participates in various weekend tournaments and college showcases through the months of September and October. Eligible players will be 19 years old or younger on December 31 of the next year after the fall season.
Younger players are encouraged to participate in programs offered by the Boyertown Midget Baseball League (BMBL). See the One Boyertown section below for a description of how our two organizations work together to develop future Senior Legion players and the Legion Program Overview section for a description of the teams across the entire Boyertown Legion Program.
