South County baseball is just like Major League Baseball; we start in April and end in October. We just have a longer All-Star break than the pros.
The second half of our year is Fall Ball. Fall Ball is a joint effort of the Little Leagues from South County, West Springfield, and Central Springfield. Our South County teams will be formed in early to mid-August and practices will begin soon thereafter. The game schedule runs from early September to early November. T-ball and Single A usually have games on Saturdays, and the other divisions will play a weeknight game and a Saturday game each week. South County home games are at Lower Potomac. Away games will be played under the lights in Springfield at Trailside Park and Byron Avenue Park.
Fall ball is intended to be instructional and developmental. It is an excellent way for the players to improve their skills playing at the same level as this spring, or a good way to transition up to the next level in preparation for spring 2014. The skill level of the player, their level of play this spring, requested level of play, age, and the number of players enrolling will be the factors used by the league for determining placement in the fall.
This fall we will also have an Intermediate team. They will play on a 70’ diamond, and it will be for advanced players ages 11-13. We may or may not have Intermediate play in the spring of 2015.
On-line registration is now open. The fee is $90 for T-ball and $130 for baseball.
Parents interested in coaching or managing should indicate that as they register their child, and send an email to
If you only play baseball in the spring you are missing half of the action. Play Fall Ball and see how the other half lives.
