Second Grade Baseball and Softball
This league is for 2nd grade boys (baseball) and girls (softball). Games are played among HHK/SR teams but also against teams from other nearby towns. Scores are kept, but the focus is still on baseball and softball instruction over winning. Teams are formed mostly by random, however, players known to have previous baseball or softball experience are distributed evenly among the teams. Batters face live pitching for the first time, but coaches stand ready to pitch, if necessary, in order to keep the game moving. The league begins with clinics on the first two Saturdays in April and games continue through mid-June. Baseball meets each Saturday and once during the week on Tuesdays or Thursdays, Softball generally meets twice during the week. Players are furnished with a uniform consisting of a hat or visor, jersey and socks. Players provide their own pants and may wear plastic cleats or sneakers; metal spikes are not allowed.
