Recreation Baseball Program

OVERVIEW:
Hobgood Baseball strives to provide, maintain and develop quality and wholesome youth recreational sports activities and facilities for both girls and boys in our community. All of our coaches and volunteers place an emphasis on teaching fundamental skills and sportsmanship to the players within the league. In addition, a strong emphasis is placed on enjoying the great sport of baseball.


ASSESSMENTS:


During Assessment Day, your child will be evaluated on the following baseball techniques: Hitting, Throwing, Catching and Base running.  The assessment itself only takes a couple of minutes, but you should expect to be at the park for about 30-60 minutes depending on the size of your league.  Please pay close attention to what field you will be assessed on.  Please bring a glove, bat, and helmet if you have them available.


BAT REQUIREMENTS:

Hobgood Baseball will be following the bat requirements of Little League. Please visit the following site for helpful information regarding what type of bat your player(s) should be using going into this Spring season. https://www.littleleague.org/playing-rules/bat-information/
