Grove City Youth Baseball Programs

Grove City Little League Baseball registration is during the month of February.
Youth Fall Baseball registration is during the month of June.

Revised COVID-19 Policy for Fall Baseball | Aug. 25

Due to recent cases of COVID-19 in participants in our fall youth baseball program, coaches and players are required to wear masks when in enclosed dugouts going forward. In addition to limiting the spread of airborne diseases, it will allow only the person testing positive for COVID to be quarantined rather than the entire team, thus preventing forfeits and other disruptions to our program and to the schools players attend. This policy does not apply to uncovered bench areas (Windsor Fields #7 & #8 and all Fryer Park fields).

Thank you for your cooperation as we attempt to provide an opportunity for the community youth to stay active.
