The TP Baseball Committee has scheduled a Rookie Ball House League Batting Practice session on Saturday, June 1.

This Saturday Rookie Ball batting practice session  will be available to the teams in the ‘Monday Division’, and the schedule is as follows:

10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.: Bobcats and Jaguars (Christie Pits Diamond 3)

11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.: Lions and Panthers (Christie Pits Diamond 3)

Players from these teams can arrive anytime from the start time of their session until 10 minutes prior to the end. Each player will be given the chance to face 10 to 12 pitches so that they can get used to facing the new JUGS machine (a.k.a. “Fergie”). Prior to facing the machine, players will have a chance to warm up with some wifffle balls so as to make the most of their pitches. Coaches, if you’re available Saturday it would be great to have you there during your team’s time…if you can’t be there don’t worry, we’ll be doing this again in a few weeks.
