The AA division emphasizes fun and participation. It is not competitive and the goal is to get kids hooked on the sport and to return the following season.
Coaches use Jugs Jr. Baseball Pitching Machines to pitch to players in AA. If the player doesn’t make contact after a few pitches, the coach has the option to hand pitch a few to the player. Strike outs do occur but a far and few between.
Players ages 7-9 on August 31, 2018.
Players should have one-year of experience in organized baseball unless they are 9.
Players must live or attend school within the geographic boundaries defined for MLL.
