Seasons/Practices:  The house program has a spring and fall season.  The fall season runs from September to early November.  It is the coach’s discretion as to how many practices they will have, but we recommend one per week so that skills can be taught for the player's development.

T-ball / Shetland:  Teams will hold one practice during the week with a game on Saturday in the beginning of the season.  Later in the season there will be two games per week instead of one practice.

Coaches:  We are always looking for good coaches for our children.  All head and assistant coaches are required to pass a mandatory background check and participate in a computer NYSCA training course.  Our coaches are the backbone to all of the Club's programs and whose attitude and approach are appropriate for the level and goals of any particular sport.

End of Season Single Elimination Tournament:  To promote players learning the game of baseball and enjoying the experience of playing, standings are not kept during the regular season.  All teams make the playoffs, win - loss records are irrelevant for seeding.

Equipment:  OBGC provides each player with a uniform consisting of a team shirt and hat.  The only equipment a player must bring is a fielding glove.  Boys fielding the catcher position are required to wear an athletic protector/cup.

Baseball Bat Restrictions

  • Shetland, Pinto & Mustang must use 2 1/4" barrel bats, no weight restrictions
  • Bronco & Pony may use 2 1/4" or 2 3/4" barrel bats, no weight restrictions
  • Colt must use a minus 3 bat with a 2 5/8" barrel as required in high school baseball
