Pre-Rookie Ball - Age 7 (2011)
In Pre-rookie we take the next step and introduce the pitching machine/slinger.
The pitching machine allows players to hit a live ball that is consistent in placement. The ball is thrown at approx. 25 - 30 MPH.
The pitching machine pitches balls in the strike zone to batters. Batters attempt to hit the ball and run the bases to score runs. There are 6 infields positions and remaining players in outfield positions. Defense and offense will switch after 3 outs or the run limit per inning. No score is kept.
Games are played on Saturday mornings at 11am and the season is 12 weeks long.
Players will require their own glove, helmet, protective cup, and pants. Baseball cleats are recommended. Steal cleats are not allowed. The league will provide players with a jersey and hat.
