Saturdays in Grant Park are filled with the sounds of bats pinging and fans cheering.
Grant Park Baseball is a volunteer-led youth baseball league serving children from the Porch Press neighborhoods and beyond. The T-ball league is for ages 4-6 and two divisions of the Coach Pitch league are for older kids (typically second grade through fifth grade). Teams are coached by parents and community volunteers, and games are attended by family, friends, and spirited neighbors.
The 2022 season boasts eight T-ball teams and eight Coach Pitch teams.
T-ball: Phillies, Orioles, Pirates, Tigers, Diamondbacks, A’s, Rays and Rockies
Coach Pitch: Mets, Reds, Rockies, White Sox, Red Sox, Royals, Cardinals, and As.
The final games of this season will be played Saturday May 21 between 9:30am and 2:00pm. All are welcome to watch.
