The season is from the first of May to the end of June. Players receive a hat and T-shirt that they keep and a baseball jersey that is returned to the coach at the end of June. The players are evaluated at the Kinsmen Sport Centre and the St. FX Fieldhouse (day and time of the evaluations are provided out when you register). All players must attend an evaluation in order to be placed correctly. Weather permitting there may be further evaluations during April at the diamonds. Following evaluations the players are placed on a team with other players of equal skill. Games are played at Confederation Park (111 St. and 44 Ave., adjacent to Harry Ainlay High School) and Empire Park (107 St. and 47 Ave.). Players are expected to be at the game diamond by 5:45pm for warm-up. Games will start at 6:30 pm and end at 8:30pm. Every player bats in order even if they did not play in the field. No player sits on the bench two innings in a row.
All Major players must provide their own fielding glove, pants (grey), baseball cleats, and batting helmet (helmet cages are encouraged). ALL players must provide and wear personal protection: a JOCK for boys and a JILL for girls. A special discount coupon will be available at registration that may be used at United Cycle. Other stores that sell baseball equipment include: Sport Chek and Home Run Sports.
There is an optional ALL STAR program that takes you from middle of June to August long weekend. MINORS and MAJORS ALL STAR TEAMS: Those making and playing on Travel team costs TBA.
