How Teams Are Formed


Individuals and teams (whether partial or complete) are welcome to join J Baseball. New teams should contact Ben Heger at 913-399-3045 or [email protected] for additional information. Those registering without a team are considered “free agents” and will be placed on a team by the League administrator.

 League Facilities 


All games are played at the Jewish Community Center located at 115th and Nall in Overland Park.  The baseball and softball complex is comprised of five lighted fields including three turf fields.  Restrooms and concessions are located on site.  In addition, J staff is present at all games, providing supervision and assistance with first aid matters. The league provides Overland Park City fields for those playing in our Fall League. 

Any team securing their own practice space will be reimbursed $50 by The J upon proof of receipt. For those looking to use The City of Prairie Village fields, information 
regarding their field/practice rentals can be found HERE.

 
Division Descriptions 


Below is a brief description of each division. Teams will be combined into one division if there are not enough teams within an age group.

Coach Pitch for Kindergartners (2024-2025 school year)

Teams have separate practice and game schedules.  Practice day(s), times and locations are determined by coaches based upon field availability provided by the league or a field acquired by the coach. Each team is scheduled to play eight (8) games – on weekends - with 60 minute time limit per game. Coaches can submit blackout days/times before the schedule is determined.  No scores are kept during games and coaches are encouraged to focus on skill development.
