PRAA's baseball program has existed for over 20 years!  We offer divisions for those players ages 4-12 beginning with our T-Ball program.  See below for more detail on each division. 
For additional questions, please contact Justin Perry, our baseball commissioner at [email protected]

Developmental T-Ball

Players age 3 1/2- 4 will focus on the basics of the game.  Our goal with this age group is to teach the children in a stress free environment.  At the end of each practice, the developmental coaching staff will make ever effort to line the group up and play a game.


T-Ball League Information

Players ages 4-6 learn hitting and fielding fundamentals in a supportive team environment. Young athletes hit the ball from a batting tee which is height-adjusted for a level swing, batting in order through the line-up for the entire game. The primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball in a supportive team environment.

Required equipment: Gray baseball pants, protective cup, bat, glove, baseball cleats (plastic only/no metal)  
Optional: Helmet, Mouth guard


Rookie League Information (machine pitch)
Designed primarily for ballplayers ages 7-8, this division makes use of a pitching machine to allow for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field. Fear of actually being hit by a pitched ball is diminished. It makes the game safer and improves the playing confidence and ability of all participants.

Required Equipment: Gray baseball pants, Protective cup, Bat, Glove, Baseball shoes (with plastic cleats, not metal) 
Optional:  Helmet, Mouth guard

Minors League Information

Required Equipment: Gray baseball pants, Protective cup, Bat, Glove, Baseball shoes (with plastic cleats, not metal)

Pre-Season Skills Assessment

All players are required to attend a Skills Assessment at the beginning of the season. Practices are usually held on one weeknight and one Saturday for several weeks prior to the first game. They will approximately 1.5 hours in length. Once games start, practices will no longer be held due to field availability. Special circumstances may be given for additional practices pending an agreement by the coaching staff and the commissioner.
