Who can register for Fall Baseball?

 

Registration is open for any 5 - 12 year old child in the Worthington School District.

 

Can Travel Baseball players participate?

 

Yes, but not as a team.  Travel team players will be evenly distributed amongst teams.

 

What equipment will my child need to play?

 

Uniforms are not provided.  Home and Away jerseys and a baseball cap will need to be purchased at Egelhoff Sports (50 Dillmont Drive – 436-5700).  Batting helmets and catcher's equipment are available at the field for all players. 

 

You will need to provide a baseball glove/mitt for your child.  Players typically share bats; however no bats are provided by WYB.  All bat guidelines are governed by Little League rules and regulations.  No big barrel bats permitted.

 

You may also want to consider the following optional equipment:

 

Cleats - Please no metal spikes.  Soccer cleats typically work well.  Sneakers are also acceptable.

 

Baseball socks and pants - Please contact your coach if he/she requests a specific color.  Jeans or sweatpants are perfectly acceptable, however, most children wear baseball specific pants (typically gray or white).

 

Will my child be placed on a team with friends from his/her school?

 

We try our best to accommodate special requests; however, we cannot promise that your child will be on a certain team.  Many factors influence team placement, including the following considerations:  the number of students registered from each school, number of coaches, and home school of volunteer coaches.  I would suggest making a note in the "Special Request" box of your online registration form if you have any unique concerns.

 

Can girls play Fall Baseball?

 

Yes!  However, boys typically outnumber girls on teams by a large margin

 

Should my child "play up" or "play down”?

 

We strongly discourage children “playing up” in the Kid Pitch League for safety reasons.  The league commissioner must approve “playing up”.

 

Please understand that there is much more to baseball than hitting.  Your child may excel (or struggle) at a particular baseball skill; however, baseball can be a complicated sport for children to fully understand and appreciate at this age.  In my opinion, most children benefit from playing with their age-group friends and peers.  It is our hope that your child has a fun, enjoyable experience.  Please use your best judgment.

 

When are practices scheduled?

 

Practices will be scheduled at the discretion of your coach.  Times and locations will be determined by your coach.

 

When are games scheduled?

 

Game schedules will vary.  Typically, games will be scheduled Monday – Friday in the evening.  Games also will be scheduled on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and evenings.  There will be no games on Sunday mornings.

 

Where are games played?

 

McCord Park, by the Worthington Recreation Center.

 

What if it rains?

 

Fields will be closed at the discretion of Worthington Parks.  The Rain Line number is 614-786-7366.  For all other circumstances, BOTH coaches will determine if a field is playable.  Safety is our first priority.

 

Will my child receive a trophy/medal?

 

No trophies or medals are awarded for Fall Baseball.

 

I want to coach, whom do I contact?

 

Great!  Contact Dave Richeson  as soon as possible.  Preference will be give to returning coaches. All coaches are required to complete a Background Check.  Please refer to the "Background Check Policy" tab on the left margin of the WYB website.

 

What are the responsibilities of a coach?

 

Coaches should create a fun and safe atmosphere for players to learn, practice, and compete.  Coaches will also be asked to communicate effectively with parents and distribute uniforms and equipment as needed.

  

Any further questions can be directed to Dave Richeson  .
