Meridian, MS – May 2, 2014 – The Downtown Optimist Club announces that registration for the 2014 Season of Crestwood T-Ball will begin soon! Crestwood T-Ball games will be held at Crestwood fields during the month of July starting Monday, July 7, 2014. The number of participants who register will determine the number of teams. Trophies will be given to all players at the end of the season.

Registration will take place at Crestwood Baseball Field. Boys and Girls ages 4 to 6 are encouraged to participate. Cost is $60 per child ($50 for each additional child in the same family) and includes a jersey and baseball cap for each child. Parents are also encouraged to attend and participate in the coaching and will be given an opportunity to volunteer during the registration process. We have a maximum of 150 player slots available so be sure to register early!

Crestwood T-Ball Registration will be held at six separate times:

If your child is between the ages of 4 and 6, take this opportunity to sign up for Crestwood T-Ball. We are also in need of coaches and assistant coaches so if you’d like to help please mark it on your child’s registration form. Learning the game of baseball is just as much fun as playing it! And coaching is a rewarding experience with your child.

  1. Hi! I am registering my son, and my husband is interested in coaching or assistant coaching. Where can I submit his information for coaching? Can I submit my son’s application online somewhere?

    Thank you, Kelly Smith

    1. Kelly,
      You can download the Registration form here: http://www.dtoc.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/CrestWood-T-Ball-Registration-Form-2014.pdf and at the bottom of the form is an area where parents can volunteer to be either a coach or an assistant coach. We appreciate any parent who is willing to spend time with these children and you really don’t need to know much about baseball or t-ball in order to be an effective coach.

      Anyone can get started by just checking out our simple T-Ball Rules Of Play by clicking here: http://www.dtoc.org/t-ball/t-ball-rules-of-play/.

      Thanks and we look forward to seeing your son on the field this summer!

    1. The coaches for individual teams will decide if they will practice and the times. Once we complete the registration process and get all of the kids assigned to their respective teams, the coaches will get in touch with their players parents to notify them of any team meetings, practices, etc. Thanks!
