I was wondering if these requirements have to be done at a certain time my child has played baseball since he was 4 does he have to wait till the season starts again or can he get these awards now

rita - The emphasis of the Academics & Sports program is to try new things.  Your son, being an expert at baseball, would not be trying anything new if you just used his past baseball experiences in meeting the requirements.
But, it doesn't make sense to not let him earn this loop and pin just because he's already an expert.
So, with just 90 minutes of practice and probably another 15 to 30 of demonstrating skills with you, he could earn the loop and pin.  It doesn't need to be done during baseball season.
A better opportunity would be for him to find out which scouts in his den are not baseball experts and spend some time teaching and practicing with them.  That way, he would gain experience and they would gain skills.

Just wondering if T-ball counts as baseball?  My son will be playing t-ball this year and it seems pretty much the same other than the tee.

Carla - That sounds reasonable to me.  It's organized baseball with a set of rules, rather than just sandlot ball.
