PRACTICES AND GAMES

Your players age group will dictate how many games and practices will be scheduled, as well as how long the games last.

    • T-BALL

Practices generally start in late April. There are 1-2 practices per week leading up the first game. Games generally begin in early May. Games are 2-3 innings and have a time limit of 45 minutes. All players will hit from a tee. Every player will get a chance to bat during each inning and line ups should be rotated to provide every player an opportunity to hit last to hit the "home run". Weather permitting, the season will end by July 1, 2023.

    • PW6

Practices generally start in mid-April. There are 1-2 practices per week leading up the first game. Games generally begin in early May. Games have a time limit of 60 minutes. The coach will pitch 5 pitches, and if the player is unable to hit any of those 5 pitches a tee will be used. Every player will get a chance to bat during each inning and line ups should be rotated to provide every player an opportunity to hit last to hit the "home run". Weather permitting, the season will end by July 1, 2023.

  • SOFTBALL (8U - 14U)

Practices generally start in mid-April. There are 1-2 practices per week leading up the first game. Games generally begin in early May. Each division will have an end of season league tournament. Weather permitting, the season will end by the middle of July. If there are not enough teams formed to support a Perrysburg only league, the softball teams will compete against other Northwest Ohio softball teams and travel up to 45 minutes may be required for some of the games and end of season tournament. All practices will be held in Perrysburg.

  • BASEBALL (1st - 12th Grade)

Practices generally start in mid-April. There are 1-2 practices per week leading up the first game. Games generally begin in early May and will be played one weekday evening and Saturday Mornings. Each division will have an end of season league tournament. Weather permitting, the season will end by the middle of July. We try to keep all Divisions as a true house organization and inter-Perrysburg, but once a division is only carrying 4 or less teams, we will be looking for an external league for the teams to play in.

Equipment and clothing can be expensive. Please feel free to buy and sell used clothing and equipment from sites like this: Perrysburg Baseball and Softball Used Equipment. The league also has a limited amount of Helmets that are available as well (please contact VPBaseball@pabsc.org or VPSoftball@pabsc.org).


TEAM SELECTION PROCESS

T-Ball and PW6 is a random selection.

For Softball and Baseball divisions, there will be a player evaluation to help evenly distribute the players across the division to try to ensure that all teams will have equal skill sets and experience.

Evaluations dates are scheduled for:

  • Softball: February 25th, 2023

  • Baseball: February 25th & February 26th, 2023


TEAM PHOTOS

Team photos are taken at the beginning of the season. This is an additional cost for those who wish to purchase photos.


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

The league needs coaching volunteers to make this possible. Each team needs a coach and at least one assistant coach.

When you register your child online, please register yourself as a coach if interested! Steps to complete the required Concussion Training can be found in the 'Coaches Corner' section of our website.

  • T-Ball and PW6: PABSC strives to keep smaller teams of about 7-8 players for T-ball, and around 12 players for PW6. At this level, you don't need to be a baseball expert, just be willing to put in the time and energy to help the kids learn and have fun. Coaching at this level is a very rewarding experience, and kids love having parents or family members as a coach.

  • SOFTBALL AND BASEBALL: These divisions have teams typically consisting of 10-13 players. There should be continued focus on the fundamentals.
