VP of Midsummer Evening Baseball: Aaron Wenthold
For players entering PreK through 3rd grade in the 2021-2022 school year, ages 4-9. The season runs 6 weeks from July 19 through August 26, 2021. Registration typically opens February 1 and closes July 1. The registration fee is $120.
Teams are organized based on such factors as schools and experience level to balance teams; efforts are made to match play-with request, although this is not always possible. Teams are led by a Parent Coach; it is ideal to have 2-3 coaches per team. Please consider coaching and complete Coach Registration.
Basic information by grade/age
As this is a brand-new program, the EBA is working through groupings for the ages, park logistics and which 2-day combination (Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday) each age group will play. After registration closes, updates will be posted to the website in early July.

Players will receive a team T-shirt and baseball cap. Players are expected to provide their own baseball pants, baseball glove and wear non-metal cleats or sneakers. While not required, players should begin wearing a protective cup by 9-10. The league provides bats and batting helmets, but players are also welcome to bring their own. Please bring a water bottle and label everything including your player's cap and bat (if you bring one).
