The little league baseball played in the summer

Covering little league ball from july-August

The little baseball league officially came to a close in June with the West Division Minor League and Major League teams winning the Mayor's Cup trophies. Starting in July, there was born a
summer league which was held at the North Divisions Home fields. The name of there fields are known as Comeau (major league field) and Samp field (minor league diamond) The form of play is called sandlot ball where kids aged 7-9 and 10-12 compete. The 7-9 year old boys and girls are split up into two teams. This format is the same for the 10-12 year olds. If a youngster is none years old, he or she has the option to play ball with the older group. Some six or seven players decided to try out. It is a great idea because the none year olds will be playing with the older kids come April of next year. One attraction for the younger players is that they could steal bases in the Minor League Sandlot games. Unfortuneatly this did not pan out so well as we had hoped and it sort of became for all intents and purposes a fiasco.
So as Little League often does they came up with a solution .Because most of the minor league pitchers have problems with their control and they issue many walks; the coaches decided to use the Coach Pitch Rule. The game suddenly went from a fiasco with wild pitches and stolen bases resulting in a game bordering on out of control, to a well played 1-0 game. I see no reason for us to not use the new format. Everyone enjoys watching and playing in a crisp and well played game.
