Last Updated: 11/10/2020

 

Important dates, subject to change:

  • Evaluations on 1/23 for baseball and softball
  • Practice Begins: week of  2/8

  • During the Grapefruit (Pre-Season) portion of the season, there are 2 practices a week and 1 game on Saturday. There is one Sunday practice, which remains throughout the season, and a weeknight practice. 
  • Once the Regular Season begins, the weeknight practice is replaced by a weeknight game, which will alternate days of the week.
     
  • For Rookie (5 & 6) and A/AA (7 and 8) the practice times are expected to be 5:30 and 6:30 during the week, and the Sunday practices start at noon and run most of the rest of the day. Actual times will be determined based on the number of teams in each league.
  • For AAA (9 & 10) and Major (11 & 12), the practice times are expected to be 5:30 and 7:00 during the week, and the Sunday practices start at noon and run most of the rest of the day. Actual times will be determined based on the number of teams in each league.

Softball, subject to change

There will be one 1.5 hour practice on a weeknight (M-F) and 1 game on Saturday each week.  Weeknight games will only happen in the case of a make-up. 

There may be other opportunities throughout the season to participate in league clinics or skill sessions, but those would be voluntary. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Middle School League (6th, 7th & 8th grades), subject to change

Practice and Game schedule:

Please get with your team coach to find out your practice schedule.  Games are typically scheduled on Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday, but are possible on any day depending on the weather and the need for make up games. 

Games are played primarily on Field 6 at Medlock Park and Kelley Cofer Park in Tucker. There may also be some games that require travel to other parks, such as Dunwoody Senior Baseball (Brook Run Park) and Wade Walker.

The season will end with a tournament, hopefully the week after DeKalb County Spring Break, weather permitting, but may go longer if need be.
