June/July 2020 Baseball
The Brentwood Ball Club provides an opportunity for kids up to 18 years old to have a place to play organized baseball in the city of Brentwood. As the service provider of baseball for the City of Brentwood, we pay the City of Brentwood a $25 fee per player that resides outside the city of Brentwood (to be shown as Non-Resident fee) and pay an additional $10 fee for players outside Williamson County. If you register in our program, your player will be placed on a team regardless of where you live (in or out of the city of Brentwood, in or out of Williamson County). We are happy to have you with us wherever you live.
How to Get Started if you don’t have an account with us:

What Division to Register to:
We will have a recreational division and an open (travel) division. You would only sign up for an open (travel) division if you are already rostered on a travel team. We do not place players on any travel team even if you register to that division. For those on an open division team, the league makes no requirements of those coaches for equal playing time for all players. Based on age, most players will have the opportunity to register for the division of their current age and one age group higher.
The capacity of our program is not unlimited, and divisions will reach a waitlist prior to the late period.

Difference Between Travel (Open) Division vs Recreational (Draft)
Travel baseball/softball is a step up competitively from recreational baseball/softball. It can be a considerable increase in player commitment, skill level and dedication depending on the team. Some of our travel teams will play weekend tournaments most weekends. Others will play periodically. The price varies by team. The number of games and practices vary by team. And in our travel (open) division, playing time is between coach and player/family. Many of our families have a great experience but a few can be challenged with it based on playing time, frequency of practice/games, etc. Our travel teams will use the fields as early as 02/01 and go well into July. Our rec teams will start use from late February to late May. Prior to games starting the week of 03/23, rec and travel teams will be provided two practice slots per week and then one slot per week during the regular season. Once regular season games are completed, our travel teams will have two slots per week but some weeks may have more than two.
Because our uniforms will be ordered through Majestic with MLB names on the front and those uniforms must be ordered before teams are set due to manufacturer historical inventory challenges, we will provide the size requested in the player registration record or one size larger.
