Skill Focus: Intermediate throwing, batting, baserunning – introducing additional basic game play rules for tagging runners, catching pop-flies and throwing outs.
Expectations: This division will run the full length of the Baseball / Softball season. Each team is expected to play a minimum 10 games.
Game Play Rules: All players play in the field while on defense. Each team bats at least twice – all the way through. If time allows, additional innings may be played. Batters hit off of a Tee (or soft toss later in the season, if the skill level of the player allows). Game time: 1hr
** NOTE – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not using catchers in the TeeBall division.**
