OMGAA Rookie League – Ages 8-9

Rookie Ball (Ages 8-9 as of May 1)

Rookie ball is intended as a player’s first introduction to real baseball.  Rookie teams will be made up of players who are ages 8-9 as of May 1 (typically 2nd and 3rd graders). All players will go through an evaluation of basic baseball skills and then will be split into two divisions based upon their evaluation scores.  Both divisions are kid pitch.  Bases are set at 60’ and the pitcher’s mound at 40’. 

Evaluations are on April 8th, 2017.  Exact tryout times are posted on OMGAA main page. Evaluations are made by third parties (not coaches), generally last about 1 hour, and are closed (parents and other spectators are not permitted to observe the evaluations).

Games will be generally be either on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays depending upon the division in which your child plays, at either 5:30 pm or 7:00 pm.  It is quite likely there will be variances from that schedule, but we try to have some consistency.  Many teams across ages and leagues use the fields so scheduling with absolute consistency is extremely difficult.  Games will be played on Saturdays or Sundays occasionally (for opening weekend, all-star break, and end of season tournament), but possibly more often if required to make up rained-out games.  Practices are at the coach's discretion but, in general, will be twice a week, on days, times, and locations chosen by the coach.

Weather permitting, the season is expected to start in early May and end in the middle of July.  Rain-outs may cause the season to be extended to accommodate make-up games.
