Machine Pitch



Machine Pitch is the first step into the Little League Minor's Division and acts as a transition from Tee Ball to Kid Pitch.  We use Louisville Slugger Blue Flame pitching machines to help with pitch consistency and to align with LL 7 and 8 year old post season tournaments. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet.  The Machine pitch levels is the first time young players are exposed to strikeouts and usually the first time parents and players start caring about the score of the game.  This division is designed for players age 7 - 9.

Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in this level of Little League. After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league.

We use Louisville Slugger Blue Flame pitching machines.  We have found the machines are much more consistent than coaches as well as assuring that players are seeing a pitch at the proper speed to prepare them for the next level.
