2015 Rookie Division
The board met in November to discuss how to keep the Rookie division growing, learning and having fun. It has been decided that the Rookie division will be for ages 6-8 as it was in the past prior to the split into Rookie A (coach pitch) and AA (player pitch) divisions. See our About Our League page for more details.
