Minors - A
Primarily for 7 year-olds, Minor A reviews and builds upon the fundamentals introduced in T-ball. Coach-pitch replaces the batting tee as the primary batting mode. The batting tee is used initially for batters having difficulty hitting a coach-pitched ball, but is phased out and eliminated as the season progresses. Coaches are stationed in the field during games to instruct players in defensive play. A full schedule of games (with a five run limit per half inning) is played. There are no standings or playoffs and no all-stars are chosen. All players receive a participation award at the end of the season.
