Coach Pitch and T-Ball
Boys & Girls Ages – 4 through 8
It’s the time of the year to play baseball with the Franklin Recreation Department. Come and join us for our summer youth baseball leagues.
These are great programs which teach the basics of baseball/softball within a fun environment.
*The first two weeks will consist of practices followed by 6 weeks of games.
Registration Deadline: Monday, May 16th
You will be placed on a wait list after the deadline has passed and will be put on a team only if we have enough coaches.
Mandatory Coach’s Meeting:
Location: Franklin High School – Room A110
Meets: Tuesday, May 24th
Time: 6:00-6:45 PM
The head coaches will notify their team once the rosters have been made with team schedules.
Practices will begin the week of June 6th – dependent on available coaches. Time is TBD.
Game and Practice LOCATION: St. Martins Park (Next to Robinwood Elementary)
***Note: All children must bring a baseball glove to each practice/game.
T-Ball – Boys & Girls, Ages 4-5
T-Ball is the entry level to baseball. There’s no pitching, rather the batter hits the ball off a stationary batting “T.” During T-Ball, your child will develop the primary skills of hitting, running, fielding and throwing. The players will gain an understanding of the fundamentals, which allows for minimal competitive league play.
Coach Pitch – Boys & Girls, Ages 6-8
Coach Pitch allows the coaches to pitch to their team based on each player’s needs. Coaches will modify their speed and distance depending on the ability of the players. The purpose of the league will be to continue teaching the players about baseball concepts and work on improvement of basic skills, including hitting, throwing, catching and fielding the ball. Please register under the correct age.
