Other Frequently Asked Questions


         When are games?
  Dates and times vary by age division. For 4-Year-Old Junior Tee Ball and Rookies (5/6s), games will be Friday evenings. The Farm, Minors, and Major Divisions will play from Monday - Thursday.  Games will be held at 5:30 for all age groups and 7:30 for the older groups if neccessary. 

·       What does my registration fee pay for?  Registration fees cover, in part, the cost of the team equipment, player's uniforms, field expenses, insurance, umpires at games (8-year olds and up), and required background checks of the coaches.  We are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization.

·       Why do registration fees vary with age?  Older players’ uniforms and equipment are more expensive. Also, they use far more baseballs over the course of the season, and upper division teams have umpires at games.

·       Do you need volunteers?  Yes!  We gladly accept offers to help with coaching, fundraising and special events.  Please check the box to volunteer in one of these areas when you register your child online and we will contact you before the season starts.
