The coach will pitch 5-7 pitches, then the tee will be brought out. There will be 3 outs per half inning, with a maximum of 5 runs scored. There is a continued focus on the fundamentals of the game, including the ready position, learning good sportsmanship and basic throwing, fielding and batting skills. There is no basestealing at this level.
Summer Pickup League
In July, we offer a Pickup League for Shetland and Pinto level players. This is an informal, low commitment league that offers a chance for kids to continue playing and developing skills and friendships, without as much structure as our spring league. We provide a time and a field for players to show up, and equipment, then divide those in attendance into teams to play that day. We may also offer one or more skills training sessions. Come when you can; no worries if you can’t. This program has been successful and has grown due to parent involvement–volunteers shape and run the league.
