Rookie is for 8-9 year olds. The Rookie division is a more competitive league, as the concept of three outs per inning is introduced. All players remain in the batting lineup, but may not all get to hit each inning.
Games are played at 5:30 or 6:45 on Sundays, Tuesdays or Thursdays. Two games per week and they are played on Greenwood Field across from Dominion on Old Placentia Road.
The instructor or coach still acts as the pitcher using a cushioned ball which is thrown underhand. A greater emphasis is placed on making "outs" at this level.
Teams are usually 11 to 12 players to keep an adequate number of players in the field for each game. The schedule is usually Tuesdays and Thursdays but if we get larger numbers Sunday evening will be added to accommodate the extra teams. These sessions are one hour and fifteen minute sessions. Teams will only play two sessions per week. Greenwood Field across from Dominion is home field.
In the event of rain, an announcement concerning the scheduled games for that evening will be posted to the website at 4:00 pm.
