Whaling City Youth Baseball League is a competitive (senior division), instructional and t-ball baseball league for youths of New Bedford and surrounding towns starting at age 4 up to age 13.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and rely on the support and contributions of individuals and organizational sponsors to make this one of the best youth baseball leagues in the area.
- We strive to:
- promote sportsmanship
- improve athletic skills
- encourage team participation
- develop community relationships
To provide the youth with supervised recreation, and to foster clean competition regardless of race, color, creed or sex. Supervisors shall bear in mind that the attainment of exceptional athletic skill or the winning of games is secondary – molding of future adults is of prime importance.

A big thank you to everyone who shared our post the other day. Because of YOU,
Cole is currently checking glove/bat/pant sizes and picking out a very special bat bag for a little boy in need who is on his way!
We truly can’t thank you enough. Your support and equipment donations are helping kids and giving them the opportunity to make a play! ... See MoreSee Less

Be sure to pick up a copy of YOUR league paper The Sportin' Nooze at The Coop.
It contains game recaps, The Player of The Week, as well as the latest members of the first hit club.
Still only ONE DOLLAR. ... See MoreSee Less
The temporary Player Area by the side of the dugout area is there for the kids to not be in the dugout in an enclosed area, and doubly serves that they are "outdoors".
It is not an area for Parents and Friends to gather behind, set up chairs and talk to the kids throughout the game. No one is to be in that area during the games. There are groups of parents setting up behind this area.
This CAN NOT HAPPEN.
When we began our start up parents were to set up in the outfield away from the players, that has slowly began to be ignored.
Effective this evening, Managers and Coaches will remind their Parents and Fans they ARE NOT to be in the area where the players are seated.
We are asking for your cooperation and not looking to have confrontations about this.
These are the rules, You are expected to follow them.
It is for the Health and Well Being of our Kids and our Families.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter! ... See MoreSee Less
Although the vast majority of spectators are in compliance with the State mandate in regard to outdoor Youth Sports during Phase 3, we still have a small group who continue to not use a face covering. Please see the attached shot of the mandate and view the highlighted portion.
You MUST wear a face covering and maintain a social distance of six feet, NOT ONE OR THE OTHER, BOTH.
Please do not be the reason that our kids do not get to play baseball, don't be the reason that area kids get their leagues shutdown because you are trying to prove a point.
Wear A Mask!
It is for the kids. Also for me. and the 65 year old Grandmother who is watching the grand-kids play ball.
We are not debating personal liberties here, we want the kids to play baseball.
Wear your masks! ... See MoreSee Less

It was a nice night at the old Ballpark this evening. The sky was threatening it would rain, it didn't and spirits were high.
And the Umpire was dancing again!

Thursday July 9th. A day pretty much like any other. The temp was warm, a nice night to be at the park, but this was a different kind of night. Baseball was back at Brooklawn Park.
It was a nice game on Ladetto Field as Amaral’s battled K & B and won a hard fought 8-7 walk off win. DeBross Oil and New Bedford Fire had an interesting game on Diamond 8 where Landen Evangelho would pick up his first win of the season for the young Oilers. Over on Diamond 3, Drew Taylor tossed a strong game in a very convincing Dave’s win over Tremblay Bus.
But the story of the night was Baseball amid The Corona Pandemic, and after night number one it looked okay. Parents had been informed that mask use was a Must. For the most part it appeared that most folks did in fact follow the guideline of social distancing and wearing the masks. We are all in uncharted waters here, and as one local High School says, “It Takes a Village”, everyone will need to continue to follow the State and CDC guidelines.
Let us continue to do what we need to, in order to provide a great baseball season for our kids here at The Whale.

It was a great Opening Night of Baseball.
**** Reminder that Face Coverings are Mandatory and you must practice social distancing.... This is a State as well as a City Guideline. Good Job tonight. ... See MoreSee Less
As previously posted, we will begin Senior League play on Thursday July 9th, we will be strictly following State and City guidelines, they include 6 feet of social distancing, frequent hand sanitizing, and the wearing of a mask or face covering. This includes players when they ARE NOT on the playing field.
As stated in a previous posting these guidelines are non negotiable, masks are a must. Per order of the state.
Not a time to argue about it, if the kids are going to play ball, the adults need to Mask up. We certainly do not want anyone to get an infection, Let's do the right thing and Look Out for Each Other.........
And the two magic words we've been waiting for,
PLAY BALL! ... See MoreSee Less

As you are now aware the Governor's Office released their Phase 3 guidelines late this afternoon. We now await approval and a "Green Light" to begin play from the Mayor's Office and The Parks and Recreation Department to begin play. Once that happens we will notify everyone and begin the season.
Please know that we have been tirelessly working toward a stable and safe start to the season. We anxiously await the approval and City guidelines. The League is ready to go, we cannot begin play until the City allows us to begin play. ... See MoreSee Less
