Paducah Parks and Recreation will be offering a Fall Ball Youth League for boys and girls ages 4 to 9. The 4-6 year olds will play tee ball and 7-9 year olds will start with tee ball and transition to coach pitch based on each player's ability. Our focus for this league will be to teach kids the fundamentals of the game including throwing, baserunning, fielding, and hitting.
The league will be held on Mondays (4-6 year olds) and Tuesdays (7-9 year olds) from 6:00 - 7:15 p.m. at the Noble Park Ball Fields on September 21, 22, 28, 29, and October 5 and 6. Rain makeup days are set for October 12 and 13 in case of a rainout.
Each night will consist of 30 minutes of practice and a scrimmage for 45 minutes. Teams will be organized based on ages and attendance each night. Players should bring their own glove, tennis shoes or cleats, and athletic apparel. All other equipment will be provided.
Registration begins August 20. The cost is $10 per child and the registration deadline is September 8. UPDATE: The registration deadline has been extended to Monday, September 14th at 12:00 p.m. You can register your kids by phone at 270-444-8508 or online. Please note that players must turn 4 years old on or before September 21 to play.
