Rookie League President


(2nd Grade) 

The Rookie league focuses on the development of fundamental skills for fielding and hitting with the introduction of Kid Pitching. Coaches and Players pitch using a “flex” baseball. No scores are kept. The goal is to have fun and develop skills. Practices start early May. Games start around Memorial day and go through approximately the second week in July.

Frequently Asked Questions

What days/times are practices?

How many practices/games will there be?

Practice days and time very during the season but usually practice is held 2-4 times throughout the week for an hour to an hour and a half. Practice usually starts at 5 pm or after. Once the season starts practice and games will be mixed and we try to keep the total number of baseball events to 4.
