Baseball Introduction

PSO Baseball/Softball was established in 1999 to provide an opportunity for children to learn about baseball, sportsmanship and teamwork in a loving and supportive atmosphere. PSO focuses on developing the fundamental skills essential to the game while providing fun and competitive games. Our focus is not on winning as much as learning the game. To this end, we require that all players have an opportunity to bat and play defense in every game.

Leagues
PSO Baseball provides youth league baseball for kids ages 3-13. More information about the various leagues can be found here.

Coaches
PSO coaches are trained to encourage, motivate and build each child's self esteem as well as his or her athletic ability. All PSO coaches are required to complete a thorough background check along with a coaches certification program.

Player Equipment
Individual players are responsible for supplying their own gloves, baseball cleats (no metal cleats allowed), bats and batting helmets. Each player may not need their own bat as they may share with other members of their teams.

Team Equipment
Batting tees issued to age divisions 3/4 and 5/6 year olds only. Baseballs will be provided to each team. All other divisions provide their own equipment.

Bats
PSO allows the USA Bat and the USSSA 1.15 BPF Bat Standard. Bats may not exceed 2 3/4" in diameter and must not exceed Drop 13 ( -13 difference between length and weight)

Facilities
All games will be played on manicured fields sized for the individual leagues. The PSO Fields are located along Plano Pkwy., west of Midway Rd. Fields 1 and 2 are turf infields. This will help cut down on rainouts due to wet fields. This top of the line turf is made to act just like real grass. Therefore, it is safe to slide on and players can wear their normal baseball cleats. As always, metal cleats are not allowed in our leagues. Absolutely no seeds, gum or tobacco product allowed on Fields 1 or 2

Time Commitment
Teams will be allowed to conduct practices during the week. Practice time and locations will be at the coach's discretion. All games will be played at the PSO fields.

Spiritual Development
In keeping with our mission, PSO Baseball/Softball is committed to introducing Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to our players and mentoring them in the Christian life by the example set by our coaches and league officials. To that end, coaches will be supplied with devotionals that will be shared weekly with their players. Additionally, prayer will be a common at practices and games. The Gospel will also be presented to all players 7 and older who will have a chance to respond to Christ's call on their lives.

Grade Exception Rule:

PSO does have a "grade exception" rule in effect which allows kids to play "down", even though they are considered league age eligible to play in the next division up. As long as they are still in the same grade as those playing in the league down they are allowed to play with their classmates. Players playing down may not be allowed to pitch. Proof of grade must be submitted for approval by the league leadership of PSO to allow older players to play down with their classmates.  Apart from the grade exception rule, the only circumstance where a player can possibly to play down is for physical or health reasons and that must be documented by a doctor and submitted to the league for approval.

Note: If not enough players are registered, leagues can be modified to accommodate same level play.
