Baseball | Rookie Division
This in-town instructional league teaches basic skills (throw, hit, catch flies, field grounders, run bases) to small groups of boys and girls. The first half of each session is devoted to instruction through station training. The second half of each session is used for game playing using soft toss from coaches. Sessions are once a week on Saturday mornings at Nutile Field.
This level is for 8-year-old players as of April 30th.
