6U Co-Ed Coach-Pitch League
Belvidere Youth Baseball, Inc. is introducing a new age division for the 2017 season. Beginning this year, we will launch a 6U coach-pitch league for boys and girls ages 4, 5, and 6. This league will serve as an introductory league to prepare boys and girls for the 8U baseball and softball leagues.
Players will learn to throw, catch, field, hit, run bases, and play as a team. The emphasis of this league will be on basic rules and fundamentals. Teams will have one game per week, and one practice per week. Each participant will receive a t-shirt. Participants must bring their own gloves in order to play in the league.
Each batter will receive four pitches to put the ball in play. If the batter does not put the ball in play, the ball will be placed on a tee and the batter will get one swing. If he/she does not put the ball in play at that point, he/she is out. Games will last approximately one hour and fifteen minutes each.
Dates: May 22 to July 14, 2017
