VALDOSTA— Kids can play like the pros this spring in Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation Authority’s Youth Baseball & Softball League.
The league is open to children as young as three years old up to 12 years old. VLPRA has non-competitive co-ed t-ball for three and four year olds. Coach pitch is available for the 5/6 and 7/8-year-old leagues. Then there’s 9-10-Year-Old Boys Live Pitch/Girls Fast Pitch, and 11-12-Year-Old Boys Live Pitch/Girls Fast Pitch. Every league except t-ball requires an evaluation and draft.
Teams are based on MLB teams and each child will receive a pro jersey and a hat. All games will be at Vallotton Youth Complex, Freedom Park, & South Lowndes Recreation Complex in Lake Park.
T-ball is $65 per child, while all other leagues are $85.
