Baseball Opening Day has not been officially scheduled yet but likely will be April 22. All teams will play at least one game and pictures will be taken.
Season Length (games): Baseball Opening Day through June 17th.
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.
Game Schedule: Games will be scheduled as early as 5:30 pm Monday thru Friday and on Saturday as early as 9am. No 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. Players will want to purchase gray baseball pants, glove, batting helmet, USA Baseball stamped Approved t-ball bat, cleats and may want to purchase a bat bag.
Commissioner: If you are interested in being the Commissioner, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org in January.
