U8: Machine Pitch
The U8 Commissioners for the 2019 season are Bob and Tracy Hanzlicek. Their direct email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rules – 2020
The 2019 rules are linked here for reference only. 2020 rules will be linked when they are finalized.
Game Schedule – 2020
The 2020 game schedule for U8 will be posted here in mid-April. Games are played Monday thru Friday at 6pm and 8pm as well as on Saturday afternoons (Sunday afternoons are also possible although we try to avoid those). Teams play about 2 games a week with game nights varying from week to week. The U8 season typically starts in mid-May.
Team Standings / Rankings
For the 2020 season, team standings/rankings will be posted for all divisions throughout the season as coaches report in to their commissioners with their win-loss records.
Tournament Schedule – 2020
JSL will host a 1-game tournament for U8 against a team of similar record. Tournament dates are affected by regular season rain makeups that are needed; therefore, the tournament dates won’t be known and finalized until July – it will be posted here when it is finalized. For a general estimate, once the regular season schedule is posted above, find the last game for any team in your division, reserve a few days after that for any potential late rain makeup games, and the tournament will follow after that. All regular season and tournament games will be completed no later than July 31.
Prior to the tournament, ties in team rankings will be broken by head-to-head play or coin flip. Ribbons will be awarded to all U8 players.
