The Thunderbolts offers a limited number of batkid positions to boys and girls between the ages of 9-13. Batkids play an important role in the team’s home games, and work from 6 to 11 p.m. at their assigned games with the coach, players and interns. Each batkid is assigned to work 3-5 home games depending on how many are selected for the program. Additionally, at home games, T-Bolts batkids may serve as the batkid for the opposing team (good sportsmanship is a core value of the T-Bolts). Certain away games also are available to batkids, but a parent must provide transportation to and from the game and remain at the game at all times. Batkid positions are unpaid and parents must sign a waiver of liability form. SSL hours are available to middle school students who complete the season in good standing.

The league season runs from June 6 – July 28. To apply, please send a short letter of interest and contact information (parent(s)’ home/mobile phone numbers and email address) to: T-Bolts Batkids, c/o Sara Morris, 1109 Highland Drive, Silver Spring, MD 20910, or email Sara at

The deadline to apply is April 30, 2015. Interviews are held in early May and selection is made by May 15.
