At this level players will pitch to their own teammates versus hitting off a pitching machine. The emphasis for those children who aspire to become pitchers will be on accuracy, not velocity. Developing a command for the strike zone without the added pressure of trying to strike someone out should be a confidence booster before moving to the next level.
Required equipment includes a regulation baseball glove, batting helmet, good running shoes or plastic cleats, a jock or jill strap, and full length pants (no jeans, tear-aways or shorts; baseball pants or sweat pants are acceptable). Players will be provided a team jersey and a baseball hat.
