2nd Grade League Commissioner

2022 Season Overview

The 2nd Grade League is for children in 2nd Grade during the 2021/2022 academic school year.


Our focus is to introduce baseball to kids in a fun way. There will be no evaluation by ability at this age level. Please do not be discouraged if your child has never played before. All kids will be able to fully participate in every practice and game.

Teams will be created by school when possible. There is no guarantee that players will all be from the same school but efforts will be made to divide them in this fashion.

If you want to request a specific night for practice, please include this information with your registration. (Please indicate within the comment section) NOTE: this will likely mean that your child WILL NOT play with his/her school.

2022 registration fee is $180. Each player will also purchase a $20 raffle ticket as part of registration.

Each team will typically practice two weeknights (M/W) or (T/Th) with one game Sunday. Games can also be schedule during regular practice times. There will be no games scheduled during the Memorial Day and 4th of July weekends.
