Summer Sandlot Baseball

Updated Monday December 11, 2017 by Northampton Baseball & Softball.

Summer sandlot baseball begins the first weekend in July and continues thru early August
 
Normally we will have a sandlot type pickup baseball games @ McDonald Field in Florence
 
In addition to Saturday mornings we aim for games on Wednesday evenings as well
 
2017 Schedule was:
Saturdays thru August 5th from 10:00am - 12:00pm
Wednesdays thru August 9th from 5:30pm - 7:30pm
 
Players are 7-11 years of age
 
Adults will pitch to players who attend - parents are welcome to help as well !!
 

Rules

Players will be players encouraged to swing, up to three swings to get on base (normal baseball rule)

Towards end of each event the at bats can be considered “one pitch” for batters to ensure players know it takes one pitch (good one anyway) to make a difference and move game along.

 

Postions are “ player” chosen and adults will make adjustments based on SAFETY…adults present will help ensure players choose the correct position and equal time of certain popular positions. 

 

Position of pitching and catcher will be held by adults.

 

 

This program is a fun way to further children's baseball activity and we hope your player will participate.
