RECREATION BASEBALL

The Intramural Baseball program provides a typical "in-house" schedule of competitive games - score-keeping and standings. The goal of the Intramural program is to teach the fundamentals and skills of baseball, and good sportsmanship while winning or losing. No try-outs are required, but player evaluations will be held as we attempt to establish competitive teams.  The season ends with a "PBC World Series" championship tournament in all divisions.  A tournament team may be formed for each division to play against other organizations.

Please see the FAQ at the bottom of this page, or contact the VP-Intramural for more information.

ANNE ARUNDEL BASEBALL COOPERATIVE - The Co-op League

We have joined forces with neighboring organizations like Lake Shore and Severna Park, among others, to form the Anne Arundel Baseball Cooperative.  The purpose of the co-op is to give everyone's rec programs the opportunity to play games against similar rec teams from other organizations.  It is not a travel or select league.

  • The schedule of co-op games will vary by division as to whether they are fully integrated schedules, or just crossovers to add a few games.
  • Co-op rules and schedules can be found at http://www.aabaseballcoop.org.

PBC WORLD SERIES

The PBC World Series is our season-ending tournament in each Intramural division to determine first place.  Team Standings during the regular season are kept only for the purpose of seeding all teams for the PBC World Series.  Standings are based on points (2 pts for Win, 1 pt for a Tie).  Tie in standings are broke by (1st) head-to-head, (2nd) most wins, (3rd) fewest losses, (4th) coin toss.
 
Go to Pages on the top menu, then PBC WORLD SERIES for tournament brackets and results.

ALL-STAR TOURNAMENT TEAMS - Intramural & Clinic

The intramural 8U, 10U, and 12U divisions, and also the Clinic 6U division, each form an all-star tournament team to compete at an area tournament of similarly formed teams from other organizations.  Managers and players are usually selected in May and the teams compete in June and/or July after the end of the regular season.

 


8U SCRIMMAGE TOURNAMENT

Each season the Pasadena Baseball Club hosts an 8U Scrimmage Tournament, inviting intramural coach pitch teams from other organizations to play three 3-inning scrimmage games to "warm-up" for their respective seasons, usually the weekend before Opening Day.  Because this is a SCRIMMAGE tournament, there is no reporting scores and no tournament winner - PLAY FAIR and HAVE FUN!
 
 
 This year's tournament has been canceled due to Easter falling one week in front of our Opening Day.  Sorry, will try again next year.

REC FAQ

What is the difference between the Intramural divisions? The intramural divisions are based on age groups.

  • 8U Coach Pitch - 7-8 year olds. Coach Pitch all season long - no player pitch.  50' base paths, 38' mound. No leading off, no stealing, no sliding, no bunting.
  • 10U Player Pitch - 9-10 year olds. Player pitch all season long - no coach pitch. 60' base paths, 44' mound. No leading off, no balks, no infield fly rule.
  • 12U Baseball - 11-12 year olds. Regular baseball rules apply. 70' base paths, 50' mound.
  • 15U Baseball and up - 13-15 year olds. Regular baseball rules apply.  90' base paths, 60'6" mound.

My 8 year old is ready to pitch - what are my options? We agree a few 8 year olds may be ready for player-pitched baseball, but most are not. If you want your 8 year old pitching all season long, we will allow some 8 year olds to play up in the 10U Kid Pitch division, or they can try out for the 8 year old Travel Team. Contact to VP-Intramural or VP-Travel to discuss your situation.

Can I move my child to another division based on his individual skill and experience? We occasionally allow players to "play up" at parents request and after our evaluation. In very rare cases, we will allow players to "play down" based on skill or experience level. Safety for everyone is paramount in these decisions.

How are intramural teams formed? We do our best to keep all the teams competitive with each other so everyone has an enjoyable season with a chance to win some games. Players in intramural are evaluated by all the coaches at a Player Evaluation.  Later, the managers will select players one at a time based on the evaluation.  Please who don't get evaluated will be placed randomly - the managers will not be able to purposely select them.  After draft is completed, some player swapping may be permitted to try and honor player requests, provided we feel competitive balance can be maintained, and always subject to the Intramural Director's approval.

Do we get uniforms? Yes. Full uniforms (shirt, pants, socks, hat) are included with your registration fees. You will receive them just before games begin.

What other equipment do we need to provide? Each player should have his/her own fielding glove. Gloves do not need to be expensive, but should not be plastic, and they should be sized to fit your child's hand. Plastic soccer or baseball cleats are recommended. Again, cleats do not need to be expensive. An age appropriate bat, and batting helmet, are optional. Each team will be provided with a couple bats and batting helmets.

When do PRACTICES start? How often? What days are they on? Intramural teams usually start practicing in mid March, older teams may not start until after high school tryouts are completed. You should get a phone call from a team manager in early March after evaluations (check calendar) letting you know your schedule. Most teams practice twice a week (once on weeknight and once on weekend. Each team will have a different schedule that will repeat each week. There is no way to predict the practice schedule until after teams are sorted.

When do GAMES start? How often? What days are they on? Games start in mid April (usually first weekend after Easter) and end in mid June. You can expect 2 games a week, and a double-elimination tournament to wrap it up.  Games are held each night of the week, and some on the weekends, so your game days will vary during the season.

Where are the games and practices held? Most games for 8U, 10U, and 12U will be played at Havenwood Park, but some will also be played at George Fox MS or Poplar Ridge Park. Games for 14U and 16U will be played at George Fox MS and possibly Poplar Ridge Park.  Practices will take place at these same fields.

Are all games played at PBC fields, against PBC teams? Generally yes, the intramural program is intended to be "in-house".  But please be aware that some games may be played against other organizations if we (or they) don't have enough teams on our own to play games and/or our tournament on our own.

Will we get to use the batting cage? Yes. Each team will have scheduled times to use the cage as a team. There will also be free time available, but players will have to coordinate with a manager or board member to open it up and supervise its use.

What other events take place? Opening Day, Team Pictures, Home Run Derby, Oriole Day Parade at Camden Yards, All-Star games, Closing Ceremonies. See the calendar and talk to your team manager or parent to stay informed.

Will there be a closing ceremony? Yes - as long as we have volunteers to help organize it. The ceremonies are mostly for the younger division parents and kids, and we MUST have your help to make this happen. Please contact the VP-Intramural to find out how.

Why do we have fundraisers when we already have to pay registration fees? Baseball is expensive. Your fees cover the bare minimum necessary to operate the league. Fundraisers like the raffle tickets and Home Run Derby are REQUIRED for basic field maintenance and team equipment. Additional fundraisers like the Bull Roast are used to improve our facilities, such as the Batting Cage at Havenwood Park.

What is the Home Run Derby? This is a chance for your child to try and hit the ball as far as he can while also raising money to improve our fields and facilities. You get pledges and collect contributions from friends and neighbors, your child comes out and hits the ball. You can earn incentive prizes based on the amount of money you and your team collect. See Fundraisers on the left menu, or your team parent, for more information.

Do I have to work in the concessions stand? Yes, and No.  When you registered, you gave the Club $10 to hold and give back to you when you volunteer one hour in the concession stand.  If you don't volunteer, you agree to allow the Club to give your $10 to someone else who will volunteer in your place.  YOU FORFEIT YOUR RIGHT TO VOLUNTEER IF YOU DON'T CONTACT US BEFORE THE START OF THE SEASON.  Please see FUNDRAISING on the left menu for more information on the Official Concessions Policy.

Who takes care of the fields? We do! That means you and us together. Please help your manager and team coaches and ask them what you can do to help them. Don't just bring your kids and drop them off. If its been raining recently, some work will have to be done in order to play.
