Rookie Division Information

Rookie Division: 7-8yrs:

Players move up from T-ball to a pitching machine in the Rookie Division. By controlling the pitches with a pitching machine, there is more action at the plate and in the field. Fear of being hit by a pitched ball is diminished. It makes the game safer and improves the playing confidence and ability of all participants. Rookie Division provides players with a better understanding and concept of the game. Basic skills are refined and stressed, kids generally play multiple positions. Score is not recorded at this level.

  • Pitching machine is set to 40mph.
  • Batters get 5 pitches to put the ball in play.
  • All players play in the field, with only 1 player at each infield position.
