Sandlot Baseball and Softball League is a program designed to provide a fun and exciting environment for kids to play indoor baseball and softball. It is a structured program for players between 5 and 12 years old. The games will take place on our 17,500 sq ft field and will be officiated by Academy staff but coached by the players. The kids will organize themselves and rotate positions every inning as Academy staff supervises and umpires the games.
Each team can have a minimum of 7 players and a maximum of 9 on their roster. Rosters can be filled with your friends or individuals and small groups will be partnered with others to create a team.
There will be 3 Divisions of Sandlot:
- 5-7 year olds
- 8-10 year olds
- 11-12 year olds
The games themselves will be timed (1 hour) not played in a 6 inning format. This will keep the pace of play fast and each inning exciting. A conventional 3 out format will be followed as well as “Sand Lot” rules introduced. The Academy staff member will throw each pitch using a special indoor ball designed for safety during the BASEBALL games. There will be no walking in order to help create an “offensive” environment! All players present will play a defensive position with the catcher standing off to the side away from the hitter for safety. The games being played by the 5 & 7-year-old division will have 2 Academy staff members assigned to each game. They will take an extremely active role as coaches to ensure all the players have a fun and exciting experience each week.
The cost per player for Sandlot will be $95. All players will receive a Sandlot tee shirt at check-in of their first game. A $25 per player or $100 per team deposit is required.
Opening Day November 9th
All games will be played on Saturday or Sunday.
