The Rookie League allows a player to step up his or her skills and play a more engaging brand of baseball as they players get ready to play "real" baseball games in 3rd grade. The Rookie League emphasizes building confidence in the batter's box and on the field while gradually introducing the player to some of the more general rules of baseball. Each grade plays in their own league.
First grade players will use a combination of coach pitching and hitting from a batting tee. Players who are uncomfortable swinging at a pitched ball will use the batting tee. Cost: $120. Players are provided a tee shirt and hat.
Second grade players will start their season with coach pitching while some players will start to learn to pitch in practices. Half way through the season, players will hit "live" pitching and will also pitch to batters. No pitcher will be allowed to pitch more than one inning per game. Cost:$120. Players are provided a tee shirt and hat.
