At the Rookies level, 7-8 year-olds focus on the fundamentals of throwing, catching and hitting a moving ball, while gaining an understanding of rules, base running and how to get outs. Coaches are allowed on the field during games, providing instruction before and after plays. A pitching machine, using regulation Little League baseballs, provides consistency for batters. No scores are kept during regular season games. While the competitive aspects of the sport are clearly secondary at this level, teams do compete in an end-of-season tournament to crown a division champion. Teams are formed by the Rookie Commissioner with assistance from the Rookies managers and the league’s Player Agent.
