Baseball Introduction

Director: Mike Maack  (972) 820-5208    [email protected]

PSO Baseball was established in 1999 to provide an opportunity for children to learn about baseball, sportsmanship and teamwork in a loving and supportive atmosphere. PSO focuses on developing the fundamental skills essential to the game while providing fun and competitive games. Our focus is not on winning as much as learning the game. To this end, we require that all players have an opportunity to bat and play defense in every game.


PSO Baseball provides youth league baseball for kids ages 3–12.


PSO coaches are trained to encourage, motivate, and build each child's self-esteem as well as his or her athletic ability. All PSO coaches are required to complete a thorough background check along with a coach’s certification program.

Player Equipment

Individual players are responsible for supplying their own gloves, baseball cleats (no metal cleats allowed), bats and batting helmets. Players may not need their own bat; they may share with other members of their teams.

Team Equipment

Batting tees are issued to age divisions 3–4 and 5–6-year-olds only. Baseballs will be provided to each team. All other divisions provide their own equipment.


PSO allows the USA Bat and the USSSA 1.15 BPF Bat Standard. Bats may not exceed 2 3/4" in diameter and must not exceed Drop 13 (-13 difference between length and weight).


All games will be played on our PSO Baseball Fields at the Joe Perry Sports Complex and on fields built on Graham Field or Champions Field. The PSO Fields are located along Plano Parkway, west of Midway Road. Fields 1, 2 and 3 have turf infields, which will help cut down on rainouts due to wet fields. This top-of-the-line turf is made to act just like real grass. Therefore, it is safe for players to slide, and they can wear their normal baseball cleats. As always, metal cleats are not allowed in our leagues. Absolutely NO PETS, seeds, gum or tobacco product are allowed on or in the areas of all sports fields. Pets officially marked with a collar or vest as service animals are allowed.

Time Commitment

Teams will be allowed to conduct practices during the week. Practice time and locations will be at the coach's discretion. All games will be played at the PSO Fields on Saturday's. Rain makeups could be rescheduled on Sunday afternoons later in the season if needed.

Spiritual Development

In keeping with our mission, PSO Baseball is committed to introducing Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to our players and mentoring them in the Christian life by the example set by our coaches and league officials. To that end, coaches will be supplied with devotionals that will be shared weekly with their players. Additionally, prayer will be a common occurrence at practices and games. The Gospel will also be presented to all players 7 and older, who will have a chance to respond to Christ's call on their lives.

Grade Exception Rule

PSO has a "grade exception" rule in effect which allows kids to play "down," even though they are considered league-age eligible to play in the next division up. As long as they are still in the same grade as those playing in the league down they are allowed to play with their classmates. Players playing down must get permission from the league approving them to pitch prior to the season. Proof of grade must be submitted for approval by the league leadership of PSO to allow older players to play down with their classmates. Apart from the grade exception rule, the only circumstance where a player can possibly play down is for physical or health reasons, and that must be documented by a doctor and submitted to the league for approval.

Note: 2022 is the first year for PSO Baseball to try age specific divisions. If not enough players or teams are registered, PSO will be modified to accommodate same-level play by going back to combined age divisions as we've been doing since the league began (7/8, 9/10, 11/12).
