Overview: 

In the 8U division, players hit from a pitching machine only. The level of competition increases as players use a regulation baseball and begin to learn situational defense and base running while continuing to improve fundamental skills of batting, fielding, and throwing. Teams practice twice during the week at the beginning of the season on set days and as needed once games start for the season. Games are played on weeknights at either the Hershey fields or at one of the county league fields. Teams play against other ETSR 8U baseball teams and teams in the county league. At the end of the season, teams will play in the county tournament.
