Coed Baseball

SFX offers coed baseball programs for children ages 5-18. All our divisions focus on fundamental skills and teamwork. Schedules and fields are maintained by Prospect Park Baseball Association (PPBA).

Registration is now open for Spring Baseball season, opening April 1, 2017.

Tee-Ball (Age 4)

The Tee-Ball division is an introduction to baseball for players aged 4 years old. For the safety of all children, there are no exceptions to this age requirement. Therefore, if your child will be 5 before April 30, he/she is not eligible to play Tee-Ball and must play in the PeeWee Division.

The Tee-Ball division plays according to modified rules that help children to learn basic baseball skills while promoting camaraderie. Coaches are encouraged to follow guidelines outlined in the coach’s handbook.

All Tee-Ball games are played on Saturday at the Dean St. Playground (located on Dean St. between 6th Ave & Carlton Avenue). Each game plus a pre-game practice will last 1-1/2 hours. The season runs from April 9 through June 11.

Tee-Ball players should have a baseball glove that is comfortable for their hand. We recommend leather gloves. Players should wear sneakers. Cleats are not allowed since games are played on a turf field.

We will provide a uniform, cap, and tee. Tee-Ball schedules are maintained by SFX Youth Sports. Fees for 2017 are $80.
