Youth Baseball (ages 5-8)

Division Descriptions

 

T-Ball Baseball:
Ballplayers ages 4-6 learn hitting and fielding fundamentals in a supportive team environment. Young athletes hit the ball from a batting tee which is height-adjusted for a level swing, batting in order through the line-up for the entire game. The primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball in a supportive team environment.

Ages: typically 5 to 6 year
Tryout - No

 
Rookie 1 (Formerly Coach-Pitch) Baseball:  

Rookie 1 baseball is designed for players slightly older and more skilled than T-Ball. Players will continue to work on the fundamentals of throwing, fielding, and hitting while learning a team concept. Adults pitch to the players using RIF (Reduced Injury Factor) baseballs. During the game, coaches are permitted on the field to pitch to their own players and to reinforce defensive positions in the field. Teams will likely play in-town as well as an away game each week. Games are four innings and played one to two times per week with practices also.

  
Ages: typically 6 to 7 years
Tryout - No
 
Rookie 2 (Formerly Machine-Pitch) Baseball:  

Rookie 2 baseball is designed for players who have played Rookie 1 (coach-pitch) in a previous season. Players will continue to work on the fundamentals of throwing, fielding, and hitting while learning a team concept. The four inning games are some combination of machine pitching and kid pitching.  Teams likely play in town and also travel to for an away game each week. Games are typically played one to two times per week with practices also.

  
Ages: typically 7 to 8 years
