Jr. Batting Recreational League:
Teams are made up of 12-15 players per squad. Teams are selected at random then adjusted with consideration to ages, schools, and player positions. All players receive a team T-shirt with a number. The league's goal is for participants to learn fundamentals and have fun playing baseball!
Helmets and the "Must Slide Rule" are in effect to ensure the safety for all players. A pitching machine is used to replace "live" Pitcher and Catchers will be stationed behind a "port-a-sock" net.
Lineups will include eight defensive players and one D.H player who will rotate a new defensive position each inning. Batting Lineup will feature continuous batting order. Umpiring, score and record-keeping will be handled by the adult league officials. There are no coaches for teams. We assign our Troy Jr. Legion and Post 43 Legends Players are on the sidelines to assist the teams with their lineups, help with fundamentals, and guide them through the game.
League age limit is aged 10 years to 12 years.
Games are played at Duke Park on Saturday Afternoon and possible Monday Evening.
