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. 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. Baseball meets each Saturday and once during the week on Tuesdays or Thursdays, Players are furnished with a uniform consisting of a hat or visor and jersey. Players provide their own pants and may wear plastic cleats or sneakers; metal spikes are not allowed.
