We will be having pre-season baseball training sessions in April. You must sign your player up when you register for spring baseball if they are going to attend.
From January to the end of the baseball season in June, there are a lot of things that need to happen in addition to playing and coaching the games. Equipment, field maintenance, umpire coordination and events are a few things.
Before this season starts, our goal is to repaint the building behind the backstop on Field 3. Registration has a section where you can opt in to help.
The difference between an average and a strong town baseball program is community involvement. Please opt in where you can in the registration or reach out to me for other ideas on helping. Thank you.
HP Rec Baseball typically has at least one practice and two games per week. Games will begin in late April. Practice will begin in March, depending on weather and everyone’s availability.

This year, we are offering the convenience of having players reuse their reversible blue/gold jerseys from the 2023 rec baseball season to help keep costs down. If your child is playing HP Rec Baseball for the first time or your child needs a new reversible jersey – once you register for the 2024 season you will receive a confirmation email and in that email you will see a link to place your order for the reversible jersey. You will pay the vendor directly for ther reversible jersey. If your player is using their reversible jersey from last year you would not purchase a new reversible jersey. If you are not sure if you have it – you can click on that link and see the image of the reversible jersey.
Please note that the practice shirt, pants, belt, socks and hat are all still included in the regular registration fee. The practice shirt can not be worn in games – they have to have their reversible jersey with a number.
Volunteers will be needed if we are going to have an Opening Day. There is a place in the registration section for sign-ups, please sign up if you would like Opening Day to happen.
Harrington Park Rec Baseball SHOP EVENT at DICK’S SPORTING GOODS
Our partner, DICK’S Sporting Goods, is offering a 20% off discount throughout the store to help you gear up for the season! Once registration is closed an email will go out with the coupon.
In your registration, please indicate whether or not your player would be interested in playing summer travel baseball. Once interest is gauged, we can determine how to best proceed with a Summer season. (Note that whereas Rec Baseball is sorted by grades, Travel Baseball always runs by birth year. Your child may not be with their classmates – travel baseball birth year cut off is different than travel soccer.)
