Machine Pitch Baseball

Updated Thursday January 7, 2016 by Miccosukee Little League.

Intermediate Machine Pitch will be comprised of Baseball Age 6 and 8 year olds and will be a machine-pitch format. Our pitching machine throws 34 to 38 mph strikes at a pretty even level with the 6 and 8 year old batters strike zone offering these batters the opportunity to apply the best hitting mechanics (unlike coach pitch the high path and arc of the ball breeds poor hitting mechanics). This is always the most exciting division to watch as the players get consistent pitches from the machine and it's a hitting and fielding fast moving experience like no other baseball division. 

These are some of the fundamentals players will develop: 

  • Transition from T-Ball 
  • Instilling value of team building 
  • Instilling value of sportsmanship 
  • Consistent pitches to hit 
  • Develop out fielding skills 
  • Understand healthy competition
