The Minors league is designed for boys ages 9 – 12 and is initial exposure for players to live pitching. More emphasis is placed on proper pitching techniques.

The league will meet one to two times a week on weekdays and Saturday for practices. As the season progresses game days will be on Saturdays and some weekday evenings games. We will have six inning games using a regulation baseball and scores will be kept. This league allows all players to play an infield and an outfield position and the entire roster bats.

Each week, we take the time to share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ. These devotional times will be held prior to the games and will include player participation and memory verses. Attendance at devotional times is required. The season will conclude with a league festival that includes food, fun, participation awards, and league champion awards.
