The player may keep the hat and the T-shirt.
  • Rookie – Ages 7 (6 if 5 when played T-Ball): A soft incrediball is used. Coaches pitch to the batter. No scores are kept. There is a mandatory play rule (everyone plays). There is generally one practice per week and two games. Players bring their own glove, but ALL supplies a uniform. The player may keep the hat and T-shirt.
  • Minors – Ages 8-9: A safety RIF ball is used. Coaches pitch the first part of the season and players begin pitching the second half of the season.
