Rookie league is a program for young baseball players with stars in their eyes. The 1st and 2nd graders that play in this division will remain here for 2 years where knowledge of the game and individual skills are emphasized. Rookie league carries on the torch of making baseball fun for every child so that they want to improve as players and remain in the system.
The basic concept of Rookie League is to make the game safe, fun, and interesting for young players by using a pitching machine. A pitching machine's consistency gives a young player the opportunity to have success at bat. That consistency also almost guarantees more action in the field so that those same young players, have lots of opportunities to field balls, and make plays.
The Rookie program is one that also relies heavily on parents who are ready to lend a hand whenever needed. The more adults to direct the energy of these young players, the better the experience for everyone involved – kids and parents alike!
