The game progresses to more of the “full-meal deal” of baseball. We move to larger diamonds (90’ for Seniors) and generally follow the rules of regulation baseball, including calling balks, allowing lead-offs, and the added element of a regular season and playoff interlock with the other Leagues in District 8 (Leagues south of the Bow River). All-Star Tournament play is available in the summer with teams being formed at two different levels: Intermediate and Senior.
Attendance at an evaluation session in March is mandatory, so please be aware of the dates, times and locations that these are scheduled.
Parents Need to Provide:
Participants are supplied with a numbered, embroidered baseball jersey (which must be returned at the end of the season), ball cap, baseball pants, baseball “sleeves”, a belt and baseball socks (all of which they keep).
Parents need to supply cleats (metal is allowed), a baseball glove, an athletic protector or compression shorts (mandatory in Little League) and a batting helmet. Please make sure the helmet fits properly, is CSA approved, and is marked (athletic tape works well) to identify it as your child’s. A face guard on the helmet is optional.
Many players have or will wish to purchase their own baseball bats. All bats, other than single-piece wood bats, used in Senior Division games or practices must display the BBCOR logo (USA Baseball-approved bats are not permitted in the Senior Division). Each team will have an adequate supply of BBCOR bats provided by the League.
The season starts in late April and playoffs finish up in late June. Most weeks there will be two games scheduled and one or two practices. Games and practices may be scheduled on any day of the week, including weekends. District 8 will strive to have at least one qualified umpire at every regular season and playoff game, and preferably two.
There may be a number of opportunities for out-of-League tournament play, many of which will be out of town.
