Our Leagues

Instructional

The instructional league is offered to 3 and 4 year old players. It is a good way for the kids to be introduced to the game and at minimal cost to the parents. We hope the kids will enjoy the game and continue to come back to the park for many more years as they continue to develop a knowledge of the game of baseball.

All players play on both offense and defense for the entire game. Coaches remain on the field at all time to give instruction to the players on both offense and defense. We also use a rubber style baseball to prevent injuries and help the kids lose the fear of being hit with a baseball.

Each player gets an award at the end of each spring season.

Coach Pitch

At this level players begin to play using a regular baseball. All players will play on both offense and defense each inning. Coaches will remain on the field to offer instruction throughout the game on both offense and defense. At the end of each spring season each player in Coach Pitch will receive a trophy. We do have an All-Star team for this level that is made up of the best players from each team. This team will travel to other parks as well as our own as they play against other local leagues. Each player gets an award at the end of each spring season.

Rookie

This league is for 7-8 year olds. Players hit off of a pitching machine that is set at 44 mph, instead of a tee as used in T-Ball. All players play on both offense and defense. Coaches are able to be on the field to coach the players on both offense and defense. Each player gets an award at the end of each spring season.

Minors

Players now pitch to one another rather than hitting off of a pitching machine or tee. Players also learn to steal bases for the first time.

All players will play on both offense and defense. Pitchers can only pitch two innings per game. This forces coaches to develop more pitching talent as well as give other players a chance to pitch.

At the end of the regular season, all minor team will play against each other in a park tournament to determine a league champion. All players receive an award at closing ceremonies.

An all-star team will be made up of the best players from each of the teams and will have the opportunity to compete and represent our park at the district, state and regional tournaments.

Majors

All players will play on both offense and defense. Pitchers can only pitch two innings per game. This forces coaches to develop more pitching talent as well as give other players a chance to pitch.
