Rookieball - Ages 8-9 by the end of the year

Rookieball will introduce participants to a pitched ball and uses a pitching machine to throw the ball to the batter. The pitching machine is set at 40 mph in this division.

There are three outs per side per inning with a regulation game consisting of six innings. There are a maximum number of runs per inning in effect and the entire team is in the batting rotation.  Fielding skills are emphasized at this level. Girls may also play Rookieball, but some choose to switch to Girls Fastpitch (Softball) division which begins at this age.
