Each paid registration includes a uniform (jersey and cap/visor) and award.  The League also provides each team with equipment (including a Pitching Machine for Junior Division teams) and practice fields.

 How Teams Are Formed 


Individuals and teams (whether partial or complete) are welcome to join J Baseball.  New teams should contact Mitch Martin at 913-327-8011 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.  J Baseball offers two divisions of play beginning with our Junior 2 second grade division.  The American League is generally for players with some combination of more experience and or stronger skills.  Coaches may choose which division their team will participate in, while free agents may request which division they would prefer. Teams will be combined into one division if there are not at least 10 teams within an age group.

 League Facilities 



Most games are played at the Jewish Community Center located at 115th and Nall in Overland Park.  The complex is comprised of three lighted fields.  Restrooms and concessions are located on site.  In addition, J staff is present at all games, providing supervision and assisting with first aid matters.  Overland Park city fields and Shawnee Mission School fields are used for practices and back up game fields.

 What Makes J Softball Better


J Softball has a neighborhood atmosphere.If you want to win at all costs, go somewhere else.If you want a positive softball experience, J Softball is for you.

We use fields located in northern and central Johnson County.Most league games will take place at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park and practice fields are at Shawnee Mission schools and Overland Park city fields. There are no game admission fees or parking fees.

We provide the equipment for each team at all age levels. (Yes, we even provide pitching machines for the Junior Division.) Unlike other programs that require fund-raising activities or gathering sponsors, there are no hidden costs in J Softball.

Each paid registration includes a uniform (jersey and cap/visor) and award.

Concessions are available at the J ballfields, and are reasonably priced.

Schedules and standings will be easily accessible via the J Sports website – jsportskc.com. Updates on field conditions and weather delays are available on our website, by phone and via text messaging.

Coed T-Ball for 4/5 year olds (entering kindergarten in the Fall of 2019)

A fun, skills based class introducing young children to the basic skills involved with T-ball/Baseball/Softball – throwing, catching, hitting, fielding and running the bases.  This class is led by J staff and incorporates parents to assist their child.  Modified game playing – no scores kept – is introduced as the program evolves during the season.  Team groups consist of only 8 players.  This program emphasizes more game concepts than BlastBall, but the overall focus remains on developing skills.

Wednesdays     5:30-6:20 and 6:30-7:20 pm  (times rotate week to week) May 2-June 20                        JCC Field 3
