Welcome to Rookie Baseball

The primary goal at this level is to develop the fundamentals, sportsmanship, teach rules of the game and have fun.   

Age:  Rookie ball is for 1st graders

Season games will start beginning of April (weather permitted) and run thru first week of June.  Typically have two practices a week until games begin.

We play a 10 game season

  • Games last 6 innings or 1.5 hours
  • Continuous batting order
    • inning ends after 3 outs or all players have batted
  • Coach Pitch - If batter does not hit ball after 5 pitches the ball should be placed on Tee
  • No leading, stealing, bunting or sliding
  • All players should receive equal playing time and be moved around to give them experience at every position
