Single A Division - (Minors) (Ages 5-6)

(5-years-old by May 1) pittsburgh youth baseball

The 14th Ward Single A Division is the best program in Pittsburgh to introduce kids ages 5-6 years-old to the fundamentals of baseball in a fun and safe environment. Our program teaches basic skills and concepts in each aspect of the game – fielding, throwing, hitting and baserunning – through structured practices and games. Teams play two 75-90-minute practice/game session each week for five weeks. In each session teams learn a skill in a fun, team-oriented format, then play a game, usually lasting 1-3 innings. We encourage kids to try to hit coach-pitch, and use a tee if needed or preferred. Everyone hits and plays in the field every inning.

 

The season caps off with an opportunity for the kids to show off their skills and win prizes (everybody gets a consolation prize!) We always promote a positive attitude and prioritize safety, fun and fundamentals!

Field/Equipment

All sessions will be at the Frick fields at the corner of Braddock and Forbes. We use softer, safer baseballs for this age group. Teams will be provided jerseys (hats+shirts) and baseballs. Pants and cleats are preferred but optional. Due to the COVID pandemic, players need to bring their own gloves, bats and helmets. If you are unable to procure any of these items, please contact us and we’ll assist as able. 

Coaches/Volunteers

We take as much help as we can get! No experience is needed to coach. The league provides a lead instructor to guide each week. We also offer a coach’s clinic before the season starts to introduce new coaches to some of our most experienced coaches. We review basic concepts and drills, and give newcomers an opportunity to ask questions. Even if you cannot commit to being a coach, we strongly rely on volunteer support during our sessions, especially with added social distancing and mask-wearing protocols. We look forward to seeing you at the fields!
