Am I too old to start baseball?

I have always wanted to play Baseball but now I'm 13 I have no expirience (but I have been praticing hard and long) and I really wanna start baseball but the problem is (even though i have been praticing) i feel like I'm too old to start. I dont want to become professional, just for fun. And i do want to become apart of a team. Am i too old to start?

You aren't. I'm a manager... Some of the student I've worked with didn't have little to no experience at all when they started the seventh grade, but they showed the coach how hard and long they worked and how much passion they put in the sport. Some are now my starting positions in the varsity high school baseball team. Just show them what you can do and show them you love baseball then you can join the team. But if its the middle of the season you'll have to wait until the next year, they may not take you late in the season.

No actually i just started softball this year for the first time and you dont need to worry if you have a good coach because they would help you with all of you baseball related problems

No. You're never too old as long as you put your heart to it and practice practice practice :)!

Keep practicing and then try out for your middle school baseball team. Who cares if you don't make the cut, because you've never been on a team before. And if they don't have cuts and just sign you up, why not? It'll be fun

Nope. As long as you take a year to play in like a rec league before you go competitive, I think you'll be just fine!
