Minors (kid pitch) - Baseball

Eligibility

Kids league age 9-10 (age as of August 31). Select players age 10 may be selected to the Majors through the draft.

Overview

Where the rubber meets the road—or, rather, the pitcher’s cleat meets the rubber. The boys have been looking forward to this moment. To take to the mound or test their mettle at the plate—a face-off among friends and schoolmates. Kid Pitch is a fun and entertaining ride for players and fans alike. 

Young pitchers will learn proper form and how to make adjustments to correct for inaccuracy. Batters will learn to recognize and time good pitches and avoid the occasional wild one. Skill development continues for fielding and play-making. And on the base-running front, players are allowed to steal bases for the first time (a treat for one and all). Score-keeping, standings, and playoffs make for a more competitive level of play.
