Parent Volunteers are needed at night to make this program a success.  If you are selected after the coaches meeting to become a volunteer coach, you will receive a $10 credit per team you coach, to your online account. 

This league was designed to give the children an opportunity to get a feel for the game of baseball and softball.  The main purpose of the Bam Bam League is to teach children to hit the ball, run the bases, become familiar with being on the field, and most of all, to have FUN.  it is our hope that this league will be the first step for many fine players of the future.

There will be no player requests unless you would like to coach together.  Then you can indicate that during the online registration under the "comments" section.  This is not a competitive league.  There is no scorekeeping.  Every player hits in every inning.  Players use an oversized orange bat to hit a whiffle ball off of a tee and run the bases.  Players should bring a hat, glove, and water bottle.  All other equipment is provided by the Grimes Parks and Rec.

Parents/Guardians are asked to stay with their child during this program and to not leave the area.
