The 7/8 division consists of 7 and 8 year old boys. Lowell Little League will continue to be working more toward having these Little Leaguers ready for the 9-10 minor division. This means that for a few weeks at the start of the season the coach will be pitching and a few specific rules will be in place. After this instructional period, the kids will begin pitching up to a full count, then the coach will take over and either the player gets a hit or is out. All the rules will apply 3-outs, 5 run limit, stealing when ball crosses the plate up until 3rd base and learning the different situations that occur during a game. We are hopeful that this new division will be a great blend of our past while getting the Little Leaguers ready for the future.
7-8 teams will start kid pitch on the week of May 6th. Coach will come in at 4 balls and finish the remainder of the strike count, kids will strike out. Each inning is 3 outs or 5 runs witch ever comes first. They will bat in a continuous batting order rotating positions every inning.
Stealing is permitted 1 base per batter. No stealing home.
Team score will not be kept by coaches as to wins and losses at this age.
Time limit will no new inning will start after 1.5 hours
