Minors Kid Pitch - For boys and girls ages 7 to 10 years olds. However, 7 and 8 year old players must complete at least one season of machine pitch and pass a skills-assessment at evaluations to be eligible for minors kid pitch. The goal of our kid pitch program is to help young players transition from hitting off a machine to player pitch. In this more advanced program they'll start to refine their hitting, fielding, throwing, and strategic skills, while also learning the advanced rules of the game of baseball. 



UP FRONT REGISTRATION COST: $160
  • Once your athlete is placed on a team you will receive 8 raffle tickets per child to sell for $20 per ticket. Our hope is that you would be able to sell all 8 tickets to recoup the $160 you paid for the season. Yes thats right, you get to keep the money from the tickets sold with the hopes of your child playing for free!
