The Sandlot Series consists of weekly pick-up baseball games beginning Saturday, September 7, and running through Saturday, October 26. Games will be played on Saturday mornings (9-11 a.m.) at Metacomet.
Coaches will run a 30-minute practice followed by an hour and a half pick-up baseball game each week. Players will be randomly assigned to one of two teams with the goal of mixing skill levels on each team. There are no assigned teams – lineups will change each week, game-by-game, depending on which players attend that week.
Players will decide the positions and batting order for their teams. They will also be responsible for calling balls and strikes, calling outs and playing by the rules of the game (loosely following AAA/Majors season rules). Depending on interest, coaches may pitch. The goal is for kids to develop skills and have fun doing it.
The Sandlot Series is open to any current 6th or 7th grader. Even if you plan to play on the bigger diamond next Spring, Sandlot gives you an opportunity to hone your skills and get a few more at-bats with friends.
We’re encouraging kids that haven’t played baseball but are interested in trying it, or who’ve played baseball in the past but haven’t played in the last few seasons, to return to the game in a friendly, fun environment.
