Salem Youth Baseball relies on volunteers to keep this program running. To ensure that everyone contributes to the volunteer hours which are necessary to run the league the following volunteer program has been implemented in Salem Youth Baseball. In addition to mandatory participation in Tag Day or Calendar Sales, each family will be responsible for fulfilling 4 hours of volunteer service for the first player, and 2 hours for each additional player in the family. A check or other form of $125 per player or $200 per family, will be required to be submitted to Salem Youth Baseball at tryouts or before the player’s uniform will be handed out. This fee will cover both Tag Day/Calendar Sales requirements and Volunteer hours. Volunteer hours will be available as follows;
Game Day Volunteer Hours
Official Scorekeeper - 1 parent 2 hours credit per game
Ability to follow game and keep track of each pitch. Score, Ball/Strike, Outs and innings must be kept on current on scoreboards at Michele Park. Volunteer must pick up scoreboard system at the concession stand and return after the game. This will also be how you check in for your volunteer hours. Home team is allowed first option to assign a scorekeeper.

We offer a $125 buyout option for the first child and $200 per family and you will not be required to complete the volunteer hours. We do, however, ask that you please have your child participate in Tag Day/Calendar sales if you can.
All volunteer hours will be assigned on a First Come First Served basis. Sign up quickly to ensure you get slots that work best for you.
