The PAL Baseball Program seeks to promote leadership, citizenship and fair play in conjunction with the Cal Ripken program curriculum “Badges for Baseball.” The Badges for Baseball program allows law enforcement officers and committed volunteers to participate with youth through baseball. The PAL baseball program is open to youth ages 9-12. The PAL Baseball program hosts and/or engages in several baseball clinics, which are open to all who have an interest in baseball.
PAL requires copies of the participant’s birth certificate, last report card, annual PAL fee and PAL New Member Registration Form. Youth with a GPA below 2.0 will be sought to attend tutoring and/or after-school in order to be eligible for competition. Certified teachers/staff provide several tutoring sessions during the week at our PAL facility. Youth will be required to complete the Cal Ripken “Badges for Baseball” curriculum. The main component is the Healthy Choices, Healthy Living program, which focuses on developing sound character and vital life skills.
All coaches must pass a strict criminal background check and provide references before they can volunteer as coach.
The PAL Baseball Program takes place March – June each year with registration beginning in mid January.
