Our Mission Statement
Junior Major League Inc was established in 1955 and incorported in 1958. We are a recognized 501(c)(3) non profit organization with the IRS.
The purpose of the Junior Major League 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 Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth and PONY Baseball organizations.
In 2010 we merged with the Daniel S. Wasson league. This is now our Babe Ruth division. For more information on Danel S. Wasson visit the Danel S. Wasson section on our home page.
Safety fo Your Children
afety is a top priority for our league. Here are a few ways we strive to provide the safest environment for everyone involved on and off the fields.
- CPR Training - the league sponsors CPR and AED training for all members. The class is offered two times a year and is taught by a certified CPR trainer and active paramedic. The class also covers basic first aid. The league picks up 100% of the cost.
- AED - 3 Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) have been installed at the Francis Field, Wasson Field 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.
- Lightning Prediction System - we installed a lightning system on top of the scoreboards at Francis field to help provide adequate warning when lightning is a threat in the area.
- Safety Fence - Our Francis and Benard fields have an 8' high mesh fence which allows an outfielder to run into it with a reduced risk for injury. The fence is designed to cushion the players impact and avoid contact with its support system.
