American League

New and Exciting Machine Pitch League!  

Click here for 2022 American League Field Schedule

  • Program recommended for 7 and 8 year old girls and boys. 

 

  • Players are either new to baseball or have played through Tee Ball. 

 

  • Pitching is performed by a new pitch machine, that throws the ball over the plate at a constant speed, giving the batter an opportunity to learn correct batting technique. 

 

  • Machine pitch will improve player safety and player engagement as the ball will be in play more. There will be less down time waiting for strikes to be thrown. 

 

  • The focus is to improve fundamentals and incorporate the basics of playing the game of baseball. Regular baseball rules are learned and used. 

 

  • All American League players will have group practices at the end of May and in-house teams will be formed to play against each other. In-house teams will play and practice on Mondays and Wednesdays during the months of June and July.

 

  • Cost is $50 per player. Includes hat and jersey.
