Archer Lodge Baseball

We also offer a summer Baseball League for children in the area.  We now offer the following programs:

  • Age 4-5: Intro to t-ball (participation trophies) SATURDAY MORNINGS ONLY – beginning May 1
    The intention of this program is to teach the following: the direction of base running, running through first base, touching each base, not throwing the bat, force outs. No coach pitch – strictly hitting off the tee. All players bat and field. Maximum players per team: 9; 2 coaches. (Maximum teams – 6…54 players) COST – $40
  • Age 6: Modified t-ball (participation trophies) M, T, Th (6:15pm ONLY) and SATURDAY MORNINGS – beginning May 1
    The intention of this program is to begin teaching techniques with hitting, throwing, and catching and more rules. There would be no coach pitch- again, strictly hitting off the tee. The coaches are free to assist the players with batting stance, etc. and anticipated “plays” (where to go with the ball if it is hit to you…). With this format in place, every child will get a hit; the pace of the game speeds up, which keeps the players more engaged rather than picking daisies and playing in the dirt. There would be a player positioned at the pitchers mound to signal for a pitch prior to the batter hitting the ball off the tee. All players bat, 10 players field. No player sits out more than one inning a game. Entire team hits constitutes ½ an inning. Maximum players per team: 12; 3 coaches. (Maximum teams – 6…72 players) COST – $50
  • Age 7-8: Coach Pitch – Tarheel League (MVP and MIP trophies will be given for each team to award) Game days and times TBD upon registration numbers and field availability – teams will play at other facilities in county in addition to Archer Lodge Community Center.
    The intention of this program is to prepare the players for kid pitch. Each batter is allowed a maximum of 6 pitches but no more than 3 swings. In this league, players may strike out. 10 players field. No player sits out more than one inning a game. 3 outs or 5 runs scored constitutes ½ an inning. Maximum players per team: 12; 3 coaches. (Maximum teams – 5…60 players) COST – $65
    Paid umpires.  **There will be a draft to attempt to balance the teams.  All-Star team opportunity for all players.
  • Age 9-10: Kid Pitch – Tarheel League  (MVP and MIP trophies will be given for each team to award) Game days and times TBD upon registration numbers and field availability – teams will play at other facilities in county in addition to Archer Lodge Community Center.
