Welcome to Rookie Ball
It's the most wonderful time of the year and it's getting closer; baseball season. We are hard at work to ensure that 2016 is the best year in Birchmount Baseball’s 60 year history and we need your help to make the league a success. Coaches and other volunteers make or break the baseball season and we need both for Rookie Ball.
This season we will be running league practices on Saturdays along with the regular two games per week; this is being done to make sure that every player is a better ball player at the end of the season, to build camaraderie between the teams and provide some consistency in skills building. To make this work we are in need of coaches, assistant coaches, practice leaders, score keepers, equipment/grounds helpers and administrative personnel. If you know nothing about baseball, we’ll either teach you or find something that will fit your unique skill set. If you, or somebody you know, can lend even a small amount of time to make community baseball better please contact us.
See you on the diamond!

Rookie Ball Information
A pitching machine is used to pitch the ball. The machine "throws" the ball at around 40 mph. The players get 5 strikes. Two players play at the pitcher position on opposite sides of the pitching machine wearing helmets with face guards (provided).
