Berkshire Baseball & Softball Club's Mission Statement

The objective of the Berkshire Optimist Baseball & Softball Club is to promote amateur baseball & softball at every level. Our organization shall strongly encourage our beliefs of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, dignity, humility, class and respect for authority.

We will strive to teach and develop the necessary skills for our players and participants to reach the "next level," all the while fully realizing that for many of the players that go through this organization, the "next level" for them may very well be LIFE. Therefore, let it be known that it is the responsibility of our members and

 

coaches to not only teach and train the young individuals that participate in our program to be better ballplayers, but more importantly, to be better human beings.

To achieve this objective, the Berkshire Optimist Baseball & Softball Club will provide supervised baseball & softball programs for both youth and adult participants in conjunction with the rules and regulations of the local leagues and tournaments in which they participate as well as the official baseball & softball rules.

This organization will operate as a non-profit 501(C)(3) entity.

Berks Vintage Base Ball Festival
We are excited to announce the First Annual Berks Vintage Base Ball Festival presented by Lehigh Valley Bat Works.

This festival is being held to celebrate the accomplishments of George Bradley, a native of Reading, PA, who threw the first no-hitter in MLB history on July 15, 1876 when his St. Louis Brown Stockings defeated the Hartford Dark Blues 2-0.

This event will be unique from any other Vintage Base Ball Festival in the country as we will feature Vintage Base Ball teams from 1860’s, 1870’s and 1880’s era's. Those attending will see the how the rules of the game evolved during the last 40 years of the 19th Century.

We will have Vintage Base Ball teams from each era playing simultaneously on so that fans can witness the games evolution right for before their very eyes.

Additionally, we will also have a special guest appearance by former MLB pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee, who will be part of the local nine's roster.
