|Structure of the Coach Pitch program:||As warm-ups are very important in baseball, players should plan to show up about ½ hour prior to the game. Players in this division will play a modified game that will prepare them for the regulation games played at the older levels. In this game players will receive a maximum of 6 pitches a coach. If a player does not hit after six pitches they shall be called out, with 3 outs per inning. Other than some minor rule changes, (eg. runners cannot advance once an infielder is in control of the ball), the basic rules of Little League will apply. Sliding will be introduced at this level but base stealing will not be permitted. |
As well as basic fundamentals and team play, batting will be an important skill taught at this level. It is important for players to feel confident at the plate especially when they start facing pitchers in the older levels. Consistent pitching received from the coach provides hitters real opportunity to develop and on the defensive side, players benefit from the increased action in the field.
Players are required to have their own batting helmet, and glove. An athletic supporter is mandatory. Cleats are not recommended for this age group.
Players may request to play on the same team with one other friend as long as both players make the same request on their registration forms.
