MACHINE PITCH (6-8 YRS OLD; 1st and 2nd grade)

The focus in WMLL machine pitch is on further developing basic baseball skills and teaching teamwork. A pitching machine is used. Scores are kept and stats are tracked. Games have a fun and introductory competitive atmosphere. This level of baseball is geared towards 1st and 2nd graders; however, 6yr olds with no baseball experience must sign up to play tee ball instead (see age chart below).

Players are assigned by schools, neighborhoods, and requests their first year, which makes up no more than half of a team (if requests make up more than half of the team, player requests will be split across two teams).  We do not draft players at this age level. Teams consist of 12 to 13 players (10 players are used on defense).

Spring Season:  Practices start in April at our indoor facility (the Hanger) and will transition to the outdoor fields as weather permits. Expect to play 16-20 games lasting less than 1hr15min, including an annual end of year district tournament hosted by Wauwatosa Milwaukee Little League in July. Games for the 2023 season were played at Kops Park and Madison Park. Stay tuned for Spring 2024 specifics and registration or see Spring Season program page for more details.

Fall Season: Teams typically play double headers on Sundays starting late August through early October.  Practices are scheduled by the coach.  Players registering for Minors (Kid Pitch) division in the following Spring should sign up for Minors rather than Machine Pitch for the Fall season.  Fall ball 2023 consisted of double headers played on Sundays 8/27 thru 10/8 with no games played on 9/6.  Stay tuned for Fall 2024 specifics or see Fall Ball program page for more details.
