A - Intro to Machine Pitch

Instructional Baseball is for boys and girls 6-7 who want to expand the fundamentals of hitting and fielding.  In the Instructional, division players will hit by a spring loaded pitching machine.

The primary goals of Instructional are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork. Rosters may be composed of between 9-10 players. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 40 feet. 

Players in this division may request to be with a specific coach, neighbor, best friend, etc. The player agent must be notified and will make all reasonable requests if possible.

 

In prior years this division was a coach pitch division.  In 2015 the league decided to change this to a mechanical pitching league to help with speed/accuracy consistency throughout the division.
