PLAYING UP/New Age Determination Date
For purposes of recreational, in-house play, Mars Baseball has an "age or grade policy".  In other words, players can play in an in-house league according to their age as of April 30 or they can "play up" in the league where the majority of their classmates play.  In other words, players born between May 1 and August 31 who started kindergarten when they were 5 are allowed to "play up" so that they can play with their classmates.  However, players born between May 1 and August 31 who started kindergarten when they were 6, should play according to their age as of April 30 so they are playing with the majority of their classmates.  The rationale is that recreational baseball is about development and socializing with friends and classmates.  

Other than stated above, no other play up requests will be considered.

 

Spring 2020 T-Ball/Intro to Coach Pitch (ages 4-5)

What: T-Ball/Introduction to Coach pitch league

Ages: Players who are 4 through 5 years old as of April 30, 2020

MBA Recommendation: All 4 and 5 year olds should play T-ball/Intro to Coach Pitch regardless of skill, attention level or prior baseball experience. 

Rules: A Reduced Injury Factor (RIF) baseball will be used. It is the same size as a regulation baseball, but it is softer. At the beginning of the season, all players will hit from a batting tee.  Toward the end of the season, coach pitch will be introduced. We use 50 foot bases.

Team Announcements: You will receive notification of your child’s team placement on or before March 31, 2020.

Practices: Practices will begin on or after April 1, 2020.  Teams will be scheduled to practice once or twice each week from April 1 through Baseball Opening Day.

Baseball Opening Day likely will be Saturday, April 18 or 25, 2020.  All teams will play at least one game and pictures will be taken.

Season Length (games): Baseball Opening Day through June 13, 2020. 

Typical Game Schedule: We will make every effort to make sure that every team plays a minimum of 10 games (weather permitting).

Games Per Week: During the first part of the season, teams will have one practice and one game each week.  (NOTE, If there are an odd number of teams, then each week one team may be asked play two games.)  Toward the end of the season, most teams likely will have 2 games during week and may have a reduced number of practices. 

Weekly Practice and Game Schedule:  Practices will be scheduled at 6 pm on Monday through Friday, and starting at 9am Saturdays.  No practices/games will be scheduled on Sundays.

Practice and Game Locations: Adams Township Park

Team Assignments: Players will be placed on teams without a formal player evaluation. The Commissioner will attempt to balance teams based on the age of the players and the known skill level of the players.

Player Requests:  If two players want to play with each other, both must submit the same request. Although we cannot guarantee any placement request, we will try to honor placement requests between 2 players so long as both request to play together and we can still maintain a proportional balance of ages and abilities on teams.  No requests to play for a certain coach are permitted.

Equipment Provided/Equipment Needed: The league provides hats, jerseys and practice/game balls.  Although the league provides a few team helmets, most players purchase their own helmet for sanitary and safety reasons. Most players prefer to purchase their own bat although the league provides a limited number of team bats.  Players will also need to purchase gray baseball pants and cleats and may want to purchase a bat bag.

Commissioner: If you are interested in being the Commissioner, please e-mail marsbaseball@hotmail.com in January, 2020.
