Wiffle Ball

 

  • Wiffle Ball Baseball is for girls and boys turning 4 prior to September 1st.  The focus is to introduce the fundamentals of baseball (throwing, swinging, fielding & terminology) in a fun, family friendly practice/game like environment.
  • Players will hit plastic wiffleballs off batting tees.  Metal bats are prohibited, and 24" foam or plastic bats are encouraged.  (Traditional yellow wiffle bats are too long for 4 year olds)
  • Wiffleball is typically held Saturday afternoon in Red Morton Park once the older division Little League games are over.
  • Players in this division may request to be with a specific coach, neighbor, best friend, etc. The player agent must be notified and will make all reasonable requests if possible.
