is the first league in what will hopefully be a long and rewarding involvement
with organized sports for each of these children. The goal for this league is
to introduce the youngsters to the most basic concepts of baseball, doing so in
a low-stress atmosphere conducive to learning while downplaying the most
competitive aspects of the sport.
Special rules have been designed which allow for all of the basic skills (i.e.,
hitting, catching, throwing and running) to be utilized under real-game
situations, but including provisions which guarantee equal playing time for
everyone, provide experience by continuously putting the ball in play and
reward the kids for trying their best by minimizing the risks and penalties
possible on any play.
