To participate in our pickup baseball league, registration is not required but requested. It will allow us to better prepare for the night. Please fill out the registration form available below and submit it. There is no charge for these games. These games are open to the public and not just the Odell Rec families.
Our games are structured as pickup games, emphasizing fun, participation, and skill development. We divide the participants into teams based on age and skill level, ensuring balanced and competitive matchups. The teams are formed on-site before each game to give everyone an equal chance to play and make new friends. We will not keep score and rules will be explained at the start of each game.
The safety of our players is our top priority. We require all participants to wear appropriate footwear and helmets while batting. Our coaches and volunteers are trained to supervise the games and ensure a safe playing environment. A first aid kit will be available on-site for any minor injuries.
Sportsmanship and Values
We strongly emphasize good sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect for others. Our league fosters an inclusive and supportive atmosphere where players learn valuable life skills alongside baseball skills. We encourage all participants to demonstrate fairness, integrity, and respect towards teammates, opponents, coaches, and officials.
Parents and guardians are encouraged to be actively involved in our league. You can support your child by attending games, cheering them on, and volunteering as a coach or assistant if needed. We value your involvement and believe that a strong parent-community partnership contributes to a positive experience for the young athletes.
Refreshments and Socializing
We encourage participants to bring their own water bottles to stay hydrated throughout the games. The concession stand will be open for drinks and snacks.
