8U For 2017 this is the option of playing in a machine-pitch travel league.
This league will replace the Mounds View in-house program. It is a great way to introduce the girls to the game of fastpitch using the same rules as 10U fastpitch – striking out, 3 outs an inning, etc. However, there is no stealing, no leading off, and no walks. Like 10/12U Fastpitch, there is travel to various locations around the Twin Cities for games. We will make an effort to try to schedule games with neighboring associations. Coaches focus on the fundamentals of softball: throwing, catching, hitting, and base running. Players still hit off of a “machine,” the same machine that is used in Machine Pitch.
There are no tryouts for 8U. If your daughter has a birth year of 2008 or 2009 she is eligible to play 8U fastpitch.
