FAQ's

What is the best way for me to stay informed about events, registration,  

and general updates including field conditions?  

We encourage all families to check the website and follow us on
Facebook: http://facebook.com/BaseballPYAA

What equipment does my child need for recreational baseball?

  • The league provides a baseball hat and a jersey for all age groups. 
  • Each child participating will also need baseball pants, baseball shoes with plastic cleats, and a glove. 
  • Catcher's equipment is provided for sharing on the team.  
  • Additionally bats are generally available for sharing among the team, but you may prefer to obtain your own.  
  • 8U/10U/12U should also bring their own helmet, however if your child does NOT have a helmet, we do have some in the equipment bins that can be shared for kids.  
  • T-ball and 7U will have helmets provided from PYAA in their coach’s equipment bag to share.  
  • For T-ball, the primary requirement is a glove. Always bring water to practices and games.  

What arrangements can be made for my child to play on the same team as our neighbor for carpooling? Or for a specific coach? 

While we understand the need for some special situations, it is impossible for us to accommodate all requests, and impossible for us to evaluate which requests are more important than others.  Additionally, our primary goal is to assure that all talent is spread evenly through the draft process. Therefore, all teams are assigned within the draft process and there is no assignment of kids on teams prior to that process. We realize this may cause some inconvenience in some families but with the size of our program, it is impossible to evaluate and accommodate all requests. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.   

Siblings playing in the same age group will always be placed on the same team.  If your children (siblings) are not put on the same team, please contact us immediately.

How do I get my child evaluated to play-up or play-down?

Fall:

  • Must be at least 7 years-old by 8/1/2023
  • Players may attempt to play up one age group 
  • If a player desires to play up, they must attend the Fall evaluation for the league desired.  
  • During the evaluation, the must be considered in the top 25% to be able to play up in the league.  

 For all play-up requests: 

  • The player MUST attend the evaluation(s) (August 2023, date to be published as soon as possible).  Failure to attend the evaluation will result in the player being placed in his age-appropriate group.
  • Play downs will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
  • We reserve the right to change and revise policies each season, depending on the success or challenges that were met with previous seasons. 
  • A play-up or play-down request is not guaranteed based on previous season approval of such.

When will I know the schedule of practices and games?

After registration deadlines, it takes a couple weeks for us to process registrations, evaluate league and team capacities, conduct evaluations and drafts, and then put together the field and team schedules. 

  • Tentative 2023 Fall Schedule for leagues: information coming soon!

Typically teams will have (1) weekday practice/game and (1) weekend practice/game per week. This could change pending the number of teams and any rain-outs.  

What baseplate distances are there for each of the age groups?

  • T-ball: 45 feet
  • 7U and 8U: 60 feet
  • 10U: 60 feet
  • 12U: 65 feet
  • Pony League: 80 feet

What are the registration fees for Spring 2024 JLB?  What are the fees used for by PYAA?

  • T-ball: $135
  • 7U: $140
  • 8U: $165
  • 10U :$195
  • 13U: $215

Registration fees help to cover a number of things for the season: 

  • Baseball specific items: umpires, equipment, uniforms, trophies.  
  • Field maintenance of the baseball diamonds: lining, dragging, mound repair.  
  • General maintenance of the fields: mowing, electricity, restrooms, trash, parking lot.  
  • PYAA expenses: background checks, registration system, internet, office, insurance. 
  • While this list does not cover every expense, it is an example of our major expenses. 
  • PYAA is a private, volunteer, non-profit organization.  We do not receive any municipal funds. Our funds come through registration fees, donations, fundraising, sponsorships, and concessions.  We are a 501(c)3 organization.  

Where can I check for Field Conditions to ensure the weather has not caused a cancellation?


In regards to inclement weather and field conditions, Safety is always our priority. 

  • During times of questionable weather, we work hard to monitor and prepare our fields.  Although late breaking weather is always a possibility.  We do our best to update our website/social media with weekday updates by 3:00pm. 
  • Please respect the decision to close the field as it is often done for our players’ safety and/or to avoid damaging the diamonds that have sustained heavy rain. 
  • During games, umpires will make decisions to suspend play due to sudden changes in weather.
  • Lightning will suspend play for at least 30 minutes.  If there is lightening in the area, we ask that all families take proper cover in their car.


When decisions are made regarding weather & field conditions, we will update families as soon as possible. Coaches will be emailed and are asked to contact their teams. We will also post to the website and Facebook.
