Kids and adults can run, hit and kick this spring as two popular sports leagues return to Ocean Pines at the Manklin Meadows ball field, located at 11443 Manklin Creek Road.
Youth t-ball, for boys and girls ages 4-6, will be held on Saturdays April 7-May 12 at 10 a.m. Players will learn and practice skills the first three Saturdays; games will be played the following three Saturdays.
The popular and long-running program is designed to teach softball and baseball basics. Participants will practice hitting, running and throwing using special balls designed to prevent injuries. Participants will need their own gloves but helmets will be provided.
The cost is $40 for Ocean Pines residents and $50 for non-residents. Volunteers and team sponsors are needed.
Adults ages 18 years and up can feel like kids again with Ocean Pines’ adult co-ed kickball league. Friends, coworkers, families and neighbors are invited to organize teams and kick stress to the sidelines with this classic playground activity. The Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department can also help place interested individuals on teams as needed.
The league will meet on Tuesdays starting April 17. Games will be scheduled from 6-10 p.m. The cost is $300 per team.
These programs are open to the public and registration is required. For more information or to register, call the Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department at 410-641-7052. Information regarding additional recreational programs, including an online version of the Ocean Pines Activity Guide, is available at OceanPines.org.
