Recommended for boys and girls aged 9-10. Players build and refine their fundamental skills while beginning to understand game strategy and teamwork. This is the first level that’s kids will pitch to other kids. To keep games moving there is a 4 run, 3 steals per inning limit. There is no infield fly or dropped third strike rule. There is also a 10-run mercy rule. Our league participates in the Macintosh Baseball Regional League, which will contain further rule modifications and allows for a post season playoff tournament and an interleague all-star game. All players must attend our annual player evaluations to ensure proper placement on a team.
