2019 Coed Fall Baseball


We are pleased to announce the TPSS Fall Coed Baseball Program for 2019. This Fall season, we will use a combination of games and clinics. Generally, we intend to use our existing volunteer coaching structure to lead teams through games followed by a couple weeks of clinics taught by professionals. Also we have formed partnership with area baseball leagues and we are delighted that this has lead to the Majors Travel Team!

The goal of TPSS Coed Baseball is to provide an opportunity for boys and girls ages 5-14* to play baseball in a positive, fair, instructional and safety-oriented environment.  Objectives of TPSS include: teaching fundamentals of the game, helping improve skills, and instilling the values of sportsmanship, teamwork, and love of the game.  Prior baseball experience is not necessary.

Operating Guidelines

§  Scholarships are available;

§  Fields primarily used: Broadacres, Forest, Spring Park; Eastern.

§  All registered players will be assigned to a team by a league official;

§  Teams drafts occur in late August;

§  For equity and playing time, we strive to keep teams to 12-13 players;

§  To ensure team shirts by first game, players must be registered by August 31.

Generally, boys and girls ages 5 – 14 are eligible to play TPSS.  A 5 year old player should have prior T-Ball experience and a parent that is willing to monitor the child at all practices and games.  No high school players.  See this link for our guidelines. Our registration system is set to these age ranges. Of course, we recognize that exceptions occur and are willing to work with parents.  Simply contact the League Administrator for registration assistance.
