Our Program

***Now celebrating our 19th Season!!!***

Since 2005 the Police Athletic League has offered players with special needs the opportunity to belong to a team and play baseball. 

PAL’s Adaptive Baseball League gives everyone a chance to play baseball regardless of their ability or disability. The league is non-competitive and involves a limited time commitment.

We offer an opportunity for children and adults with disabilities to participate fully in sports. For safety reasons, players are accompanied by a “buddy” if needed, who will help the player hit, field, and run/walk/wheel the bases.

A special group of children and adults along with their families and our volunteers benefit from this program. More than baseball is learned through the experience….There is a value in the therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports. This involves the strengthening of the participant’s self-esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play in the future and disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play.RED, TAN, & PURPLE fields (these are the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th fields in the main parking lot). Everyone will play different teams each week. Please try to arrive weekly by 4:45 so that our games can begin at 5:00. 

* If our game has to be canceled due to the weather we will contact you by text alert or email, if you do not have either please let your team’s coach know so that they know to call you. We will be using a text alert system for reminders or in the event of cancelations. To sign up for text alerts you must visit the PAL website at once on the site click “PAL Alerts” under links. You can also sign up from your phone by texting “PALADAPTIVE” to 84483. If you received alerts last year, there is no need to re-sign up. 

* If you know in advance that your child/player is unable to attend a game, please let me or your coach know so that a buddy will not be scheduled for him or her for that game.
