Mini Minor Baseball provides a transition from T-Ball to the Minor League for players who are age 7 or 8 by April 30. Like Tee-Ball, Mini Minor Baseball is co-ed. At this stage of ball there is still a great deal of hands-on instruction during the game. During defensive play, coaches may remain on the field to give instruction. During offensive play, an adult coach will slow pitch to batters. This division continues to help children learn baseball without having to be concerned over who wins or loses the game.
Dear Mum and Dad, at this age, the hardest skill to master is simple catching. You can help your Mini Minor Ball player in a big way by simply playing catch with him/her. Download the Catching Homework Sheet here, and have some fun with your child.
