Ages 7 & 8
Born Sep 1, 2013 – Aug 31, 2015
In Mini Minors, children receive additional instruction on the fundamentals of baseball – hitting, throwing, catching, running and fielding – with emphasis on playing positions in the field and good sportsmanship during game play. Players start the season by hitting from coach pitch, but after the May long weekend they will have the opportunity to practice hitting from player/coach pitch in addition to practicing pitching themselves if desired. Mini Minor games consist of 4 innings (maximum 2 hours long) with each player getting a turn at bat and all players playing the field in every inning. During a game, each team will have 3 outs or a maximum of 3 runs per at bat per inning. Mini Minors is suitable for both aspiring baseball and softball players. If appropriate, 8-year-old players who demonstrate the required level of skill and maturity may be assessed for Minors baseball or U10 softball.
The season runs from early April to mid June.
Time commitment for Mini Minors consists of one game per week—either on Saturday or Sunday in the morning or early afternoon—and one weekday practice.
Clothing & equipment
All players need to have their own glove and batting helmet. Please make sure that your player’s name is clearly marked on all items. Each player will receive a team t-shirt and hat at the start of the season—theirs to keep.
Please plan to help out with your child’s team as a coach or volunteer. A clinic for coaches will be offered prior to the beginning of the season. Don’t be intimidated, you can do it!
We are pleased to consider friend requests on teams; however, this is limited to one friend request per player – and both registrants must input the same request (each other) and at the same level of programming. Priority is given to balancing our teams.
Our registration form provides a field for you to make your request.
All play happens within Beacon Hill, so rest assured that friends will have the opportunity to play and see each other with regularity!
“Playing up” to Minors
Players are registered according to their league age. Requests to play up will be considered in an effort to balance teams and ensure player safety.
