Our 12U/13U In-House is an in-house baseball program intended for players currently attending 6th, 7th or 8th grade. Exceptions can be made for younger players with advanced skills. Players must be 13 years old or younger on April 30th 2022 so only some 7th graders will qualify. Base stealing is introduced at this level and other more advanced skills.
Play and practice dates will vary weekly but typically will be twice per week Mondays through Thursdays at 6 pm. Practices are held at Clearview Elementary or Sportsman Park in Clearwater and begin in mid April (weather permitting). Games begin in late May and home games are Clearview Elementary or Sportsman Park and away games are in Becker, Big Lake, Monticello and St Michaels/Albertville. Coaches may offer additional practices or scrimmages on weekends. Games are 2 hours maximum or maximum six innings. Players are typically asked to arrive 30 min early for games. A season-ending tournament will take place (likely in Becker) on approximately the third weekend in July. In addition, each team at this level will participate in 1 or 2 additional tournaments that are determined by the Head Coach (sign up early to have a say on when these will occur since registration for these will occur as early as mid March). There are no additional fees for tournament participation.
At this level players pitch to the opposing team. Base stealing is allowed (without lead offs). Half innings last until 3 outs are made or 5 runs are scored. A pitcher may appear a maximum of 3 innings or until they walk 5 batters in the same inning.
Players will receive a hat and jersey. Team batting helmets and bats are provided. Bring your own if you like. Bring a glove. Grey baseball pants (any style), red socks and cleats are the parents responsibility.
