COVID-19 Update: Registration is currently OPEN. We hope to open this program under the blue square phase of the transition trail map of the public health order transition plan. If we need to cancel this program due to public health orders registration fees will be refunded as a credit on the household account in CivicRec.

Our youth baseball & softball leagues give kids in Eagle County an opportunity to try out baseball or softball and learn what it’s like to be on a team no matter their experience or skill level! Remember that old team photo taken back when you were in braces and tube socks? These leagues inspire teamwork and friendship, creating healthy foundations that last a lifetime.

Our baseball & softball leagues are just $45 per kid for an 8 week league that includes a jersey, practices and games. Leagues are offered at all three of our locations – Edwards, Eagle & Gypsum for boys and girls 5-12 years old.

T-Ball (co-ed for 5-6 yr olds)
Coach Pitch (co-ed for 7-8 yr olds)
Ages 9-12 are broken out by softball and baseball.

See below for season dates and details about practices and games.

Important Info

  • Social Distancing & Sanitization Requirements

    Please note that this protocol is still awaiting final recommendations from Public Health so it is subject to change.

    • Offensive dugouts will consist of the first 4 batters: the hitter and 3 in the dugout. The rest have to be outside the dugout (outfield side) six feet apart and entering the dugout one at a time as batters complete their at bat (so that there are never more than 3 in the dugout). Spectator bleachers will be converted into extended dugout areas, with marked areas for sitting.
    • Balls will be disinfected each inning and/or whenever they leave play
    • Maps will be provided to parents for assigned areas to park and enter their assigned field.
    • Only immediate family (parents and siblings) will be allowed to spectate
    • Spectator areas will be along the outfield fence and will be marked off for social distancing
    • No high-five’s/handshakes
    • Players will be required to wash hands before leaving the field
    • The umpire will call balls and strikes 6 feet behind the pitcher
    • A bat will not be shared by consecutive batters without being disinfected
    • Coaches of younger ages will use plastic dots to put on the field to show kids where to stand
    • Not changing: catcher distance from batter and potential close proximity between runner and fielder on brief occasions. Trying to add social distancing in these situations (matching the adult softball protocols) would hinder learning too much for youth.

    We have implemented frequent disinfection and sanitizing procedures for all equipment and high-tough areas and surfaces with hospital-grade disinfectant. If you would like to receive the full list of measures we will be implementing, please contact Zane Gard at zgard@mountainrec.org
