Surfers Baseball

Rookie Ball

Rookie Ball players play a modified form of baseball where the coach pitches to their own team. There are no strikes or balls and after three unsuccessful pitches the batter can hit the ball off a tee.

In the second half of the season some children will be able to pitch to their own team as preparation for moving to Little League in the following season.

The emphasis is on skill development while introducing baseball concepts such as “Force Play” and “Tag Up.”

A modified ball is used that is softer and slightly smaller than a normal baseball to reduce the risk of injury and build confidence. Team size is aimed at a max of 8 – 9 players to increase participation and skill development with players being rotated through different fielding positions in each innings.
