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.
