The Independence Parks & Recreation Department continues to offer a wide variety of baseball and softball leagues for youth. Our Little League Program includes: T-ball offered to boys and girls as young as 4 years old (age as of April 15th of the current year- No Exceptions), Coach-Pitch for boys and girls currently in Kindergarten & 1st grade, Minors which is a pitching machine league offered for girls and boys currently in 2nd & 3rd grades, and Majors which is a player pitch league for boys and girls currently in 4th, 5th & 6th grades. We have expanded with a new facility over the years and we now offer travel baseball and softball leagues for 8u, 9u, 10u, 11u, 12u & 13u. Our most recent addition to our Baseball/ Softball program includes a 5th field and turf infields will be complete over the next 2 seasons. All of these leagues are coached by many wonderful volunteer coaches. We are extremely appreciative of the time and energy they give to the children in these leagues. We are also awarded the opportunity of a local indoor facility for kids and adults to get some hitting and pitching in all year long. River'sEDGE is a valuable multi-purpose facility which houses 6 indoor batting cages with machines for hitting and pitching. Individual Coaching, Clinics, Pre-Season Workouts, Hitting and Pitching Camps & Leagues, and Demo Days are offered at various times through the year. Stop by 206 2nd Ave SW, Independence and check it out, we are pretty proud of it!!
