Rec Baseball / Softball
LSA Recreational Baseball/Softball program is open to players attending Pre-Kindergarten (age 4 or older) through 6th grade. The goal of this program is to give young players an introductory understanding of the game in an organized and fun setting. All divisions will be coed. The season will run from April through June (weather permitting).
Single A (Pre-K)
T-Ball (Pre-K) will run from April 29, 2023 to June 17, 2023. In this league, players will hit from a tee. Games will be held on Saturdays at Spring Lake Park at either 1 or 2pm. There will not be practices held during the week. All players will be expected to provide their own glove, bat and helmet. Fee will be $150 ($125 early bird discount before March 10, 2023).

Triple A (2nd-6th Grade)
Triple A (2nd grade-6th grade) will run from April 24, 2023 to June 17, 2023. Depending on participation, we will split the players into two separate leagues (2nd-3rd and 4th-6th). In this league, players will be pitching to each other. Players will have a 1 to 2 week tryout period to estimate their abilities. If players are not comfortable with this league, they can move to Double A. Practices will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays with games on Saturdays. It is recommended that players participate at least 2 of the 3 days. All practices will be held at North Park. All players will be expected to provide their own glove, bat and helmet. Fee will be $200 ($175 early bird discount before March 10, 2023).

LSA Rules for T-Ball/Blastball (Kindergarten and Pre-K)
Baseball Bat Rules
There is a new safety standard that is being adopted by most baseball leagues. It involves lower compression bats that theoretically produce a lower spring effect when they make contact with the baseball. LSA will be adopting this new bat standard over the next 2 season. All bats that LSA purchases starting this season will meet this new safety standard known as BPF 1.15. We will not require that personal bats meet this standard for the 2013 season, but beginning in 2014, all bats used (whether LSA-supplied or personal) will be required to meet this standard and be marked accordingly. The bat will need to be marked with the BPF 1.15 logo which looks like:
