8U

8U represents a “step-up” from 7U as the players will go to bat facing a pitching machine and/or a coach for the entire game.

8U games take place at Mathers Park

Games generally take place weeknights Monday through Thursday, and/or Saturdays. Teams play generally once, but often twice, per week. The days can vary.

Practices are set at the discretion of each coach and vary from team to team. Teams generally practice once per week. Teams generally have a usual practice day but may vary from it from time to time.
