In March of this year (2015), Willy White, a man involved in the early development of the NWCT Connie Mack Baseball League passed away. Willy coached the Waterbury Team to (3) championships in the early 90's to the early 2000's. He was known as a character, but he was universally loved and respected`by anyone who was in contact with him, particularly those in the youth culture. If you are under 45 and involved in Waterbury sports, you knew Willy. Mr. White, RIP
Winsted has won the 2014 Connie Mack League Championship for the third year in a row defeating, Torrington "Sports Palace" 2-0 in two very competitive contests. Congratulations again to Head Coach Joe Nichols and his Winsted team of older experienced players.
For the 2014 season, our (32nd), we have (8) teams. We lost (2) teams, Washington and Pomperaug while a strong and compeitive team from Danbury is joining us. Play begins June 13 with a (21) game schedule plus post season games for those who qualify. The only rule change has been the addition of a 10 run rule. Aluminum and wood bats can be used in our league.
Since the 2013 season, the "AGE RULE" was changed. Previously, if a player turned age 19 after May 1st, they would be ELIGIBLE to play in the summer season. With the new change, if a player turns age 19 January 1st or after of the year they are playing, they would now be ELIGIBLE. This is a 4 month gain for 19 year olds. It was felt that this would help the participation numbers for the smaller teams / districts.
