Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year….and a 2021 Baseball Season.

My name is John McDevitt and I am president of the Mid County Baseball League. Here is a brief HISTORY of the league along the BIG Changes for the 2021 Season:

HISTORY

The EDCO League was formed over 75 years ago in Eastern Delaware County along the Mad Dade Boulevard corridor. Over the years the league has grown covering all four corners of the county. In 2019, MN Recreation (mnrecreation.myrec.com) took over the administration of the league covering all tasks like scheduling and website, which enabled us to keep the team league fees very low at $100 per team. Rules (available upon request)  were made very user friendly in terms of rosters and adding players with some playoff eligibility game requirements. The league’s official name was changed for the 2020 season and new teams were added as well as some teams sat out the 2020 COVID Season. Tri County Umpires and Frank Gorgone were added in 2020 who have been great ambassadors for the newly named league.

CHANGES

Two more division will be added for the 2021 in addition to the current juniors and seniors. The division breakdown are as follows:

FRESHMEN 13U. We feel it is best to keep the 13 year olds together while they adjust to the big field. Several leagues have requested that we add this division.

SOPHOMORES 16U. The primary age here is 14-15 but a player can play to age 16 for reasons such as development or play with his  school grade.

JUNIORS 19U: The primary age here is 16-17 but again a player can play to age 19. A good high school player or 18 year old going into his senior year and plays varsity baseball should play in the seniors.

SENIORS UNLIMITED:  This is a men’s league with many teams having at least 4 or 5 DELCO Men’s League talent quality players. Core age is 18 to 23.

We changed the Juniors to 19U to align with Interleague play with other leagues.  We are hoping the bigger leagues like Broomall Newtown, BYC or AVBL schedule a couple of league games for their IN HOUSE Teams. Not every players gets to wear the jersey with the name of his town on it , so this would be quite exciting to travel and represent your town. These part time teams would not be eligible for playoffs but games would count in the standings. Mid County Baseball has and will place individual players but PRIMARY entry is by teams only. MN recreation will only accept teams within MNSD boundaries for the Freshmen, Sophomore and Junior Divisions thru Broomall Newtown Baseball.

Play for the Freshmen and Sophomore Divisions will begin in mid to late April and be over in mid-July. With playoffs, the season consists of around 20 to 25 games depending on how you do in the playoffs. The upper divisions will start around mid-May and run thru the third week of July with the same 20 to 25 game schedule.

Please feel free to share this email or call or email with any questions. It would be great if you provide me some feedback, if interested, so I can get a read on the two new divisions. The junior and Senior Divisions will have a healthy number of teams. A zoom meeting will be scheduled in late February.
