All equipment for baseball is supplied including baseballs, plastic bats and gloves. If the participant has their own glove or plastic bat, they are more than welcome to bring it. Metal bats are not allowed. The only equipment you would need to bring is anything your child uses on a daily basis (communication device, walker/wheelchair, etc.).
Mostly, yes! At every EMML baseball game, there will be a group of volunteers. The volunteers will buddy up with participants that would like/need a buddy to help run, bat and field. On some occasions, our volunteer groups do not have enough people to help everyone, so parent participation is required.

Games are two innings or 60 minutes long. An inning consists of each team batting through the entire lineup. Each batter gets one base per hit except the last batter who hits a homerun. Plastic, foam or rubber bats are used to hit the soft core tee balls that are used. There are no strikes, balls or outs. All players go out in the field to play defense. Coaches pitch to their own team, but a hitting tee will be onsite for anyone that would like to use it. All games end in a tie.
