Rookie Junior

Description Rookie Junior introduces players to live hitting with a mixture of coach soft toss and use of the pitching machine. The emphasis remains on fun and learning baseball concepts. A Rookie Junior game lasts approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.   Players are given up to 7 pitches to hit, outs are not tracked and there is no scoring in the games.
