Fall Baseball Registration Underway at Owensboro Parks and Recreation
If you have a youngster who wants to play baseball this Fall, Owensboro Parks and Recreation is now accepting registrations. Here are the available age divisions!
Rookie league (machine pitch)……………7-8 year olds
Minor league (player pitch league….……..9-10 year olds
Major league (player pitch league)….…….11-12 year olds
These age groups for the 2017 season are based upon the child’s age as of May 1, 2018.
According to a press release from Owensboro Parks & Recreation, league play will begin Monday, August 14 and run through October 24. There will be a 10 game season, plus tournament. All games will be played at the Owensboro Softball Complex, located in Jack C. Fisher Park.
The registration fee is $53 per player or $530 per team and includes a team t-shirt, hat and award. Individual registrations will go into a free agent pool. Teams consist of no more than 14 players. And the league will teach and reinforce the fundamentals of the sport- hitting, throwing, catching, fielding, rules and, maybe most importantly, sportsmanship.
The deadline to register is Friday, July 21.
