Players Must Play in the League Based on the Age He/She Will be on April 30, 2024.
The East Youth Baseball Minor League is designed for younger/inexperienced 9 & 10 year olds (older players will be considered on a case by case basis) that want to increase their skill and experience with live pitch baseball in a more instructional environment . Coaches are expected to teach their players the game of live pitch baseball, while also teaching respect for the game, their coaches, their teammates, themselves, and their opponents.
All players will be required to go through assessments prior to the season. Based on assessments East could decide that a player needs to be playing in Majors. If this situation occurs, East will reach out to their parents.
The game will be played a full six innings. Score will be kept during games, but there will not be any records or team standings. Teams will bat their entire lineup, and allow free substitutions. Each player must play at least 2 defensive innings. There will be a 6 run limit per half inning. There will be no walks. If a player receives 4 balls a coach will come out and give the hitter 3 good pitches to put the ball in play.
