The pitching machine is introduced a full season earlier with this new division
With the introduction of pitching machines, players will now get a chance to develop their hitting skills in a more advanced format. Coaches can still throw underhand when needed, but the pitching machines will simulate overhand throwing and create regulated speeds for greater accuracy. New rules are introduced at this level expanding the way each player thinks about the game.
Required equipment includes a regulation baseball glove, batting helmet, good running shoes or plastic cleats, a jock or jill strap, and full length pants (no jeans, tear-aways or shorts; baseball pants or sweat pants are acceptable). Players will be provided a team jersey and a baseball hat.
