A: There is usually one game on Saturday morning/afternoon and another game on a weeknight at 6 PM. The day during the week may vary due to weather and scheduling.
Q: My player is 5 years old and has no experience with baseball. Where should she/he start?
A: T-Ball (Introduction to Baseball) is the best place to start and get ready for the next level. It is a lot of fun!

Also, we will be taking tempertures and will send a required COVID form on the day of the trainings.
GBBC operates a FREE Equipment Exchange where parents of older players can donate gently used items that their player has outgrown to the next generation of baseball players. Parents (especially TBall and Coach Pitch) are encouraged to come down to the Shack and look through the items that have been donated before buying new equipment for the season. We often have bats, gloves, helmets, and cleats that are in great shape. The exchange is open to browse and donate anytime the shack is open. As you are spring cleaning or on your way to Field Clean Up, please drop off any items you come across that you aren't using anymore to help out the new parents in our League!
