Unlimited Play Center Project
Provo Parks and Recreation Department has worked with a committee of residents and experts to design a play area that will serve the needs of children of all abilities. The
Unlimited Play Center is now being built at North Park adjacent to the Provo Recreation Center. This play area will be the ﬁrst of its type in Provo and will be the largest playground in the city.
Funding for this project comes from Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) and the Provo Recreation Arts and Parks (RAP) tax. Opening in summer of 2021, the
Unlimited Play Center will bring the community together in a space that every child can enjoy, regardless of physical abilities.

Minor League Boys Coach Pitch
[ 2016 Rules ] GENERAL
Participants are currently in K-2nd Grades..
Coaches are encouraged to hold a weekly practice for no longer than 1 hour.
Coaches are responsible for warming up their team prior to game time.
The first day will consist of batting practice for both teams and a shortened game.
Games will be 55 minutes long. No new innings will begin after 50 minutes.
FIRST DAY SKILLS CLINIC
Each team will have the opportunity to bat through their line - up with the coach pitching at the start of the first game (3 balls per child).
While one team is batting, the other team will review fielding skills in the outfield.
Once both teams have batted,, a shortened game will begin.
PRE-INNING WARM - UPS
Pre-inning warm - ups for the fielding team will be led by the umpire between each inning (one warm - up ball per fielder).
Each batter receives a maximum of six pitches from the ir coach (enough for a full count). Umpires will be calling balls/strikes from the home plate.
Players who receive 4 ‘balls’ from the pitcher will walk to 1 st base; 3 ‘strikes’ will consist of a strike out. Swinging attempts at a ‘ball’ will not count as a strike.
If a fair ball is not hit from strike zone pitches, the batter i s out.
Players are required to have their coach pitch; no tees or pitching machines will be provided.
Coaches pitch from the drop down pitching rubber or 20 feet from home plate.
Any ball accidentally hitting the umpire or machine is live and playable.
Any runner intentionally interfering with a play will be called out.
Batters must drop the bat after swinging. Any thrown bat,, as deemed by the umpire, will result in the batter being called out with no advancement of runners.
Batter must make contact with the ball while in the batter's box, or batter is out.
All players bat each inning. There will be no 3 out rule to end an inning, but players called out must return to the dugout area.
Batters and catchers must wear helmets, even while running the bases.
Any ball not hit into fair grass area or less than 10 feet, or hit in foul territory.
When ball is returned to pitcher/umpire.
All dead balls will be called by the umpire.
Fielding team will consist of all players on the team. Only six (6) players may be on the infield, the rest of the players must be in the outfield.
Catcher must retrieve balls intended for him /her, and return them to the pitcher/umpire after the ball is dead. Ideally, all the missed balls will be returned to the umpire after each batter.
Pitcher must stand near the coach until the ball is hit.
Please rotate all players through all positions, especially pitcher and 1st baseman.
BASE - STEALING
No stealing. Runners must stay on base until the ball is hit. One base may be taken on an overthrow.
Team shirts and hats are provided by the Recreation Department and must be worn at all games. Closed - toe shoes must be worn. Shorts are allowed.
The intention of Minor League Coach Pitch Baseball is to stress a fun and active experience, skill development, and learning atmosphere. Have fun and make learning the game of baseball a great experience for the players and all that are involved!
