Nampa Babe Ruth League

Nampa Babe Ruth League

Rookie Division




In the Nampa Babe Ruth Rookies Division, our primary focus is to teach players the fundamentals of baseball in a fun and competitive environment. Teamwork and positivity are qualities that you can expect your player to embrace while developing and improving their skillset. At this age level (7-8), your player will start to learn new aspects of the game including more advanced fielding, hitting, and base running skills. Defensive position play is emphasized, with players working at each position to learn the responsibilities and specific skills needed when playing each position. While at the plate, players in this division will be hitting the ball off of a pitching machine with delivery speeds between 38 and 41 mph. This will assist in improving hand-eye coordination by delivering them a more consistent, hittable pitch. Our goal is to prepare players for the next step by teaching skills that can be carried with them through all competitive levels of baseball.
