Designed for boys & girls aged 6-8, this league uses coaches to pitch allowing for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field. Emphasis is on starting to learn the game and rules of baseball. All positions will begin to be developed at this level including pitching and catching. The focus of Rookie League is to prepare each player to move on to the Minor Leagues, and most importantly to have fun!!
Participating towns include Townsend/Ashby, Shirley, and Pepperell. TAYBS will oversee the league operations.
Games will be twice a week, starting April 26th and going thru the week of June 21st.
Practices will be held one to two times a week, starting anywhere from one to four weeks before the first game.
Games are twice per week on either Tuesdays at 6pm, Thursdays at 6pm or Saturdays at 11am or 1pm.
There are no makeup games, and there are no playoffs.
