Organization of Players Miracle Division (non-competitive) - Everyone hits, runs the bases, scores, games end in a tie
Ages 5 through adult
Advanced Skills Division (competitive) - We teach teamwork, sportsmanship, and some baseball rules and skills. Outs can happen (no strikeouts). Games can end in a win or a loss. Teams practice once a week. Although we keep score, the results don't matter and we don't keep standings.
Ages 10 through adult
Basic Differences between leagues: Miracle Divisions Everyone hits Everyone scores There are no outs All games end in a tie Players are in the field while other teams hit, but defense is not a priority 2 inning games (1 hour) We have "Buddies" to help players Coaches Pitch
Advanced Skills Divisions We play with baseball rules so outs are recorded. Innings are either 3 outs or 5 runs scored. 4 inning games Games can end in win, loss, or tie We still don't have strike outs, but you can get out if the defense makes a play, catches the ball, tags you out, etc. Players play defensive positions There are no buddies to assist Coaches Pitch
