PeeWee Baseball - 2019 Season

2019 deadline to register online is March 9th

GBYBS PeeWee Ball


What is PeeWee?

The PeeWee division is our largest group of players and is designed for those just beginning their baseball or softball journey. Players age 5 & 6 as of April 30, 2019, with 0-2 years experience learn through game play and rules are based on creating a fun and engaging atmosphere where players learn fundamentals and basics of the game. In this division players are given opportunities to hit a live 'coach' pitch from 20ft away, on one knee. This provides a huge margin of success for players to hit and gain valuable experience with a moving target. Each player will receive two pitches from the coach and if needed, will be given an opportunity to hit a ball off the Tee. Roster batting is enforced without keeping track of score or outs. Emphasis is on fun, basic strategy, fundamentals, making friends, teamwork, and building community with our families who will be integral for the development of the group for many years to come.


When is the deadline and how much does it cost?

The deadline to register online is March 9th. A 1wk grace period (with $25 late fee) is allowed. Registration cost is only $75.

How are teams formed?

Teams are created through buddy and coach requests and then through a random assignment process.

When are practices and games?

PeeWee practices start in late march and are no more than 2 days per week. Games are played on Saturdays weekly at local school fields. Game schedules will be available around the 1st of April with games starting April 13th. 

What equipment does my player need?

PeeWee players should have comfortable clothing, a glove and cleats. A batting helmet is highly recommended but not required as the league will supply as needed. A bat is also optional and provided for those that need them.

 

What is the league fundraisier this year?

All players must participate in or opt-out of league fundraising. This year, players and families will have several options to fundraise: Portland Pickles Tickets, Gresham Greywolves Tickets and the ever popular, hanging Flower Baskets with delivery prior to Mother's Day. Additional details will be available at the parents meeting the first week of Aril. League fees cover the cost of 1 shirt, a hat and league games.


Are there boundary restrictions?

Most Cal Ripken players live or go to school within the Gresham / Barlow district. A player that lived within the boundary and moved out without a lapse in play with the league is eligible to remain with GBYBS. Players living in our neighboring districts not serviced by Babe Ruth / Cal Ripken, such as Reynolds, Corbett and Damascus can play with GBYBS as long as we are the closest Cal Ripken league.
