AA Baseball

Ages 7-8

AA-Ball is for league age 7 year-olds who have at least one year of A-Ball experience; or any 8 year-olds (regardless of prior experience). AA-Ball features a more aggressive style of play and is designed to help your child make the transition from instructional to competitive baseball. AA-Ball focuses on good baseball fundamentals. An adult pitcher will pitch to your child from a distance of at least 36 feet with a flat overhand pitch. Strikes and strikeouts are called at AA-Ball. Outs are recorded, and three outs will retire the side. Your child will play in at least 3 of the 4 defensive innings (more defensive innings if more innings are played), but may not bat in all innings since outs are recorded. Our program will attempt to place players on teams grouped roughly by neighborhood elementary schools. If you would like to request a “buddy” for your player to be assigned on a team with, please coordinate with the other family before registering, as we can only guarantee “Mutual Buddy Requests.”

  • AGE: Your child should be 7 years old by August 31, 2024 to participate. Half of the children who play AA-Ball are 2nd graders. The other half are made up of 3rd graders who aren’t 9 years old, who are playing their second year of AA-Ball, and 1st graders who are 7 years old.
