DANIEL S. WASSON
Daniel S. Wasson Merger
Effective 6/25/10, the Daniel S. Wasson League / Babe Ruth Baseball has merged
with Milford Junior Major League and will be run by the Junior Major League
Board of Directors.
This merger will provide the largest youth baseball program for ages 4 – 18
in the City of Milford.
The combined leagues will continue to participate in the Pony Baseball, Babe
Ruth and Senior Babe Ruth programs to provide your child with the best
opportunity to play real baseball. The Pony program offers fields sized to
the player’s age groupings starting at 50’ bases for ages 4-8, 60' bases for
ages 9-10, 70’ bases for ages 11-12 and 80’ bases for ages 13-14. The Babe
Ruth program offers a full size 90’ diamond for ages 15 and up along with
travel teams to play surrounding towns. All programs offer the opportunity
for National Tournament competition.

Milford JML is pleased to announce that an automatic external defibrillator (AED) has been installed at the Francis Field Concession Stand
and Conklin Field. It is believed that these are
the first AED's to be installed at a youth baseball field in Milford.
A special thanks goes out to the Robbie Levine Foundation who if not for their generosity,
the procurement of these devices would not have been possible. The units are placed in
service in memory of Robbie Levine who tragically died on the field. Emergency Medical Group of Norwalk was also paramount in the purchase of the devices.
A special thanks also goes out to Mark Hennequin for his coordination in
obtaining and installing the AED's. Mark and Scott Monforte also provided
training in the use of the devices as well as the CPR training for league
members. All this goes towards providing the safest environment for everyone
involved on the fields of Milford Junior Major League and Daniel S Wasson League.
The purpose of the Junior Major League, Inc is to organize, direct, teach
sportsmanship, and coach children between the ages of four and eighteen in
playing organized baseball. Years ago when other organizations were accepting
players based on talent alone, the founders of the Junior Major League saw an
opportunity to create an organization where all youths were accepted regardless
of their ability or gender. Today, many of the other youth organizations follow
this same principal. The league is a local affiliate of PONY Baseball inc. and Babe Ruth Baseball. PONY is an acronym for
Protect Our Nations Youth.
