Recreational Programs

Schnecksville’s Recreational Program offers organized baseball to youths between the ages of 9-18 and consists of our Biddy, Midget, Knee-Hi and Majors programs. Teams compete in a local league against neighboring organizations. The purpose of our Recreational Program is to provide a fun and relaxing environment for all kids who are interested in playing the sport of baseball. Here an emphasis is placed on continuing to develop the fundamentals along with providing a safe, structured environment that allows for learning proper conduct and sportsmanship.

These programs are minimally competitive and do not require a tryout. However, we may hold Open Evaluations at our Biddy and Midget levels. More information on Open Evaluations can be found below.

The Biddy program is for 8-10 year olds who are interested in continuing to play the game of baseball at a minimally competitive level.  At this level teams will compete in a local league against neighboring organizations where the rules begin to resemble the real game of baseball.

There are playoffs at the end of the season to determine a champion.

Biddy and Midget Open Evaluations


During certain years when we have multiple teams at the recreational levels, we may hold Open Evaluations for players.  Any Biddy and Midget eligible player who is not on a Travel Team is welcome to attend Open Evaluations. No Player is required to attend Open Evaluations. Open Evaluations will be held in March after all Travel tryouts are conducted and Travel rosters are set.  These evaluations help us place players with like abilities together in the same division to further their development.  Typically, the Recreational Leagues we participate in have two divisions; one that is more competitive and one that is more developmental.

*Certain kids may play up a level if they are physically and mentally ready to move up. A parental request must be made to the baseball coordinator who will then discuss with the player’s current/past coach and the baseball committee before making a determination. A player evaluation may also be scheduled. Not all requests will be granted. A number of factors will be used to determine if a child is ready to move up, including the number of participants at the next level.
