Hickory – Registration for Fall Baseball is now underway at the Recreation and Sports Tourism Administrative Office, located at 1451 8th St. Dr. NE, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Fall Baseball Program is open to boys and girls ages 8 and 9 (must be 8 before May 1, 2019, and cannot be 10 before May 1, 2019).

Any child that has previously participated through our master registration system may call (828) 322-7046 to register, or register online at www.hickorync.gov/recreation. Any child that has not participated in a program may register online, and once registration is complete, a parent will need to come by the administrative office and sign a waiver. A birth certificate must be presented at time of registration along with a $40.00 non-resident fee for persons living outside the city limits of Hickory.

All children participating in baseball this fall are encouraged to purchase accident insurance coverage. The $6.00 insurance fee covers the participant for a one-year period from March 1, 2019, to February 28, 2020, in all activities sponsored and supervised by the Recreation and Sports Tourism Department and must be paid at registration. The $250,000 coverage is primary coverage that pays regardless of other insurance, directly to the participant, doctor, or hospital.

Skills assessments for the league will be held Monday, August 26, or Wednesday, August 28, at 6:00 p.m. at Kiwanis Park Field #3, located at 805 6th Street, SE. Rain dates are Tuesday, August 27, or Thursday, August 29, at 6:00 p.m. Instructional days will be Monday and Wednesday.
