8U Division

Players born in 2014 or 2015 are eligible to register and play in this division.  To enable player development, this division uses a pitching machine that throws straight pitches across the plate and batters have five attempts to hit the ball.

Each player is provided with a team shirt, ball cap and ball pants which will be handed out on opening day, April 30th.  Players are required to provide their own glove, jock, bat and batting helmet (with strap).

To support team communication and coordination of team schedules, each team will be provided with the TeamSnap mobile app.
