Syosset Baseball Association introduced BlastBall for the spring 2012 season and expanded the program in the community to include children ages 3 and 4.
BlastBall is an introductory game for tee-ball, baseball, and softball for boys and girls ages 3 and 4. Utilizing a large foam ball and foam bat the game is safe for the youngest members and does not require use of a baseball glove.
BlastBall provides more action for younger children’s shorter attention span with more players involved in the game helping them retain interest in tee-ball, baseball or softball while teaching the basic fundamentals of hitting, throwing, and fielding. Registration for BlastBall is $40 and includes a jersey for the player and all game equipment. BlastBall games will be played exclusively on Saturday beginning April 21.
Players with birth dates between Dec. 1, 2007 and Nov. 30, 2009 can register for BlastBall this season at in person registrations: Saturday, March 31 from 9 to 11 a.m. at HB Thompson Middle School. Please bring a copy of the player’s birth certificate and check for in person registration.
Players can also register online at https://www.syossetbaseball.org/registration.cfm. If registering, online please mail a copy of the player’s birth certificate to: Syosset Baseball Association, PO Box 302, Syosset, NY 11791.
