Farm Baseball is an instructional level of play where players pitch for the first time. Players may have one or more years of experience, but new players are welcome.

Players will demonstrate progress in developing the fundamentals skills of baseball and knowledge of the rules of the game. Players will develop life skills related to teamwork and respect of coaches and umpires. Teams will maintain a fun environment for learning.
