About this division

For baseball 4 - 5 year olds (DOB Sept 1, 2015 - August 31, 2017)

The blastball program is designed for baseball 4-5 year olds who are playing a team sport for the first time. This is a fast and fun game that introduces some basic concepts of baseball without the stress of learning the more complex game of T-Ball.  No score or standings are kept.

There are 7-8 players per team and each player gets an opportunity to hit the ball each inning. The bat and ball are foamy.  No special equipment is required and all participants receive a t-shirt to keep.

Player Commitment

No practices are held and there is 1 game per week (1 hours total time), on Saturday mornings.  Game start times will vary.  Games typically last 30-45 minutes and are followed by a parent-provided snack.

Players are permitted to request one friend.  The Division Coordinator will do their best to accommodate the request but are not guaranteed.  Friend requests are made at the time of registration.

Parent Commitment

Blastball is NOT a drop-off activity. An adult must stay at the park for the duration of each session. Parents will be placed on a rotational schedule to help with bench and snack duties.

Blastball Field Locations

All games will be played at Riley Park (50 E 30th Avenue) on the grassy area between the T-ball and Mini-Minor diamonds or at a nearby field.   Most games will be on Saturday mornings (possibly the occasional Sunday depending on permits) and can be scheduled anytime between 9am and 1pm.  

Required Equipment

  • Baseball glove (optional)
  • Helmet (optional)
