Thorold Minor Baseball offers a fantastic 9U program for young athletes interested in learning and playing baseball. This program features the use of a pitching machine to ensure fair and consistent pitches for each player. The program is designed to teach the basic rules of baseball, including hitting, fielding, and running the bases. Additionally, the program includes keeping score, which encourages players to learn about the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship. Families can expect to have one game and one practice each week, giving players plenty of opportunities to hone their skills and develop their love for the game. At the end of the season, playoffs will be held to name a champion of Niagara, providing players with a sense of accomplishment and pride in their hard work and dedication.
