8U - INSTRUCTIONAL PLAYER & COACH PITCH

8u is an instructional league to teach eight and under (Minimum age 6) players the fundamentals of baseball. 8u is player & coach pitch league. We allow players to pitch to each batter until the batter hits the ball in play, strikes out, or the pitcher throws 3 balls. If the pitcher throws 3 balls, the coach will step in to complete the at bat.  8u teams should remain on training more than competition. 

Pinto teams will be attired in cap, jersey, and pants, but will not receive a belt or socks. This uniform is a thrill for a beginning player, and a league above anything any other program is offering the same age group. We believe this investment is worth it, as it adds excitement for the player, and improves on the overall baseball experience.

Managers and coaches at this level must be concerned with the development of all of the players on their team. These are training leagues and the development of a player's skill and personality must remain the prime goal of the manager and coach, rather than the winning of a league title.
