2020 9/10 Live Pitch League (with Coaches Draft)

UpdatedFriday February 21, 2020 byChris Young.

9/10 Live Pitch League with Coaches Draft Tryouts | Cost $160.00

The EYB 9/10 Live Pitch League is designed to develop players from a pitching machine and/or coach pitch league to the next level of baseball where the players pitch on their own. At this level, players will be able to steal after the ball crosses the plate. Catchers will be allowed to attempt to throw out would-be base stealers. Hitters will learn the art of the bunt. Fielders will learn how to adjust to the array of different situations that may come in play during a game, i.e. runners at first and third with less than two outs, a runner at third with less than two outs, etc.

The games will last six innings or 1.5 hours, whatever comes first. As in the East 7/8 Structured Coach Pitch League, all players on the roster are required to play at least two defensive innings in a full six inning game, and each team will bat their entire lineup. However, teams will only field nine players at a time versus the 10 players used in the 7/8 league. 

Finally, it is important to East that we monitor pitchers' workload to limit the likelihood of pitching fatigue. So, beginning in the Spring 2019 season, EYB will implement the Pitch Smart pitch count guidelines, located on MLB.com.

Players Must Play in the League Based on the Age He/She Will be on APRIL 30, 2020.

Our 9/10 Live Pitch League is designed for players wanting a dynamic, competitive baseball environment comprised of ballplayers ages 9 and 10 years old.

All returning players who were part of the 9/10 year old league last year will be placed back on the team they played for in 2019, unless the league is directed otherwise by the parents or guardians for that child to be placed back in the pool of open players to be drafted on a team for 2020. In those instances, players must attend tryouts again in 2020. Team selection is based on available space and specific team needs. What is a guarantee is that not every player who will tryout will be drafted.
