Shetland

T-ball/Coach Pitch
AGES 4 and 5-year-olds
FIELD(S) Hershey Field 1, 2,3

 

 

 

Overview: 

Players are introduced to the fundamentals of the game as well as sportsmanship and teamwork. Shetland uses a softee baseball for the safety of the players while they learn how to throw, catch, and field. Teams will practice on Saturdays for 30 minutes followed immediately by a game. Players start the season by hitting from a tee, and gradually work up to the coach pitching the ball. Teams in the Shetland division play against each other at the Hershey fields.
