FALL BALL REGISTRATION: OPENS AUGUST 1 AND ENDS AUGUST 17. Shirts take 3 weeks to come in so this end date is very important.

Hello Newt families! We hope you've had a fun summer!

We are excited for the Fall Ball 2022 season. This year the season will run for 7 weeks. Fall ball is kid pitch baseball.

Games are played on weekends (Saturdays at 10am and Sundays at 12pm) during fall ball. HOWEVER-- some teams will not play both days. Please be flexible with this as it will depend on our numbers for the exact schedule. Practices are at the discretion of the coach and could be once or twice during the week, or none at all depending on the coach's availability.

Age requirements: Fall ball is open to 8-12 year olds with the following rule:

****Players must be 8 on our before May 1, 2022, no exceptions

****Players cannot have reached their 13th birthday before May 1, 2023 (born after 5/1/10)

Games will be played on the following weekends:

9/10-11, 9/17-18, 9/24-25, 10/1-2, 10/8-9, 10/15-16, 10/22-23

Uniform shirts and hats will be provided. Players are expected to wear their own baseball pants.

Fall Ball is about meeting new players, exploring interest in the sport, trying out a variety of positions, and most of all, having fun! This is perfect for new players who are ready for kid-pitched baseball. We are excited to build up kids' confidence in the various areas of the game. Fall ball is not meant to be a competetive, championship oriented season. Games will conclude on 10/23/22 and there will not be a championship. Additionally, fall ball does not have the same rules as the spring season. Two things that are very different are: 12 year olds are not allowed to pitch and all kids names will be put into age categories and kids will be placed on teams so an equal amount of 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 year olds are on each team. They will not be on the same team as the spring season. Siblings will be placed on the same team.

COACHES! Coaches are needed to run the fall ball season. If you are interested in coaching please contact us ASAP.

Finally, our concession stand will be open during games this fall. We rely on the revenue from the stand to run our league. We require that all families volunteer their time in the concession stand to make this a reality. Your coaches will reach out when the time comes to schedule your time slot.

**IMPORTANT WHEN REGISTERING: On the registration form at the very end there is a question about opting out of emails for fall ball. Legally our webmaster has to ask you this, however, email is our main form of communication to families and so we kindly ask that you opt in to the emails. Thanks for your help with this.

We are looking forward to a fun fall ball season!
