Angel Baseball Program of Rockwall

Sponsored by Kiwanis Club of Rockwall County and Rockwall Dept of Parks & Recreation

The Kiwanis Sponsored Angel Baseball Program is absolutely FREE for all children with special needs. The program is for special needs children ages 4 to 15, regardless of disabilities, and the Adult team for those aged 16 and up with mental challenges.

HISTORY:
Started in 1999 and co-sponsored by the Rockwall Parks and Recreation Department, the games have no strikes, no outs and we do not keep score, every “hit” is a home run!!!!! We accept all disabilities, no matter how severe.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
We play for 8 weeks each Spring and Fall at the City owned Tuttle Field on Airport Blvd Spring 2016 Schedule is each Wednesday night at 6:30 PM on:

March 22, 29

April 5, 12, 19 (Team Pic Nite), 26

May 3, 10 (Awards Banquet inside @ Harry Myers Park)

STRUCTURE:
The parents of the children actually run the games, providing support, coaching and “officiating”. Team Moms have been designated to assist in this area. The Angels was started for special needs children ages 4 to 15. However, we also have a separate “adult” team for special needs young adults and adults ages 16 and up with mental challenges. They play on a separate field the same nights

EQUIPMENT & AWARDS:
Each child/adult is furnished a complete little league style baseball uniform at no cost to the parent. At the Award Banquet they receive a team picture, a picture of the individual child/adult at bat plus a trophy.

RULES:
We have no strikes; no outs and the basic rules are adapted to meet the disability of the player.
