Baseball & T-Ball

COVID-19 Update

Iredell County Parks & Recreation Department is following the guidance and recommendations of the CDC, NCDHHS, and local, state, and federal governments during COVID-19.  At this time all Iredell County Parks & Recreation sports leagues (spring baseball & spring/fall soccer) are postponed.  

Baseball & T-Ball


Recreation baseball is offered through ICPRD, via local athletic associations, in the spring.
  • T-Ball is for ages 5-6.
  • Baseball is for ages 7-12.
Registration begins for children within the individual communities through local volunteer coordinators and athletic associations. Coordinators will assign children to teams and schedule practices.

Practices are usually through the week. Once games begin, most teams will have one game during the week, and one game on Saturdays.

Most local athletic associations will fall under one of two Athletic Conferences for baseball, either North Piedmont Babe Ruth (NPBR) or Lake Area Youth Athletic Conference (LAYAC).

Baseball - 2021 Spring Season


Registration begins for children within the individual communities in mid-January and runs through late-February. Players are assigned to teams by the local athletic association. Coaches will schedule practices through the week, starting in March. Most teams will have 2 practices per week, until games begin.

Most games begin in late March/early April, and run approximately 9 weeks, ending in late May. Once games begin, most teams will have one game during the week, and one game on Saturdays. Tournament play may follow the regular season.
