Youth Baseball & Softball Information

Volunteer coaches are needed for the Dept. of Leisure Services to offer the Youth Baseball and Softball programs. Without volunteer coaches, the number of available teams may be limited. Please contact Kenny Sims, ksims@buttscounty.org, 770-775-8228, for more information on volunteering as a head or assistant coach.

April 28th – May 2nd: No games or practices due to CRCT Testing.  Games will resume on Saturday, May 3rd.

New this year is “Select” baseball and softball for ages 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14. “Select” is a competitive opportunity for players and teams as they improve their skills and want to continue to play baseball at a more competitive level than traditional recreational baseball. It is intended for highly skilled players to have an opportunity to compete against other highly skilled players. Players are drafted according to skill level, and not every player who tries out will make the select team. Players, parents and coaches are to expect a greater time commitment than is needed for traditional recreational baseball. Any player who is not chosen for a select team will be assigned to the recreational baseball league.
