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.
Each player will need to provide their own glove, helmet, and bat at each practice and game. Please be sure to print your child’s name on the inside of the baseball cap along with any other personal equipment. Cleats, baseball pants, and baseball socks are not necessary in these leagues. (T-BALL only: Does not require a face mask on their Batting helmet)
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).
T-Ball and PW6 is a random selection.
Each team needs a coach and at least one assistant coach. The T-Ball division has teams of about 7-8 players. 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.
All coach volunteers need to complete Concussion Training [ADD LINK], will have the opportunity to go to a workshop to get coaching tips, and will get training on how to use SportsConnect to manage their team.
To volunteer, register yourself as a coach when you register your child online!
