Bronco League Overview


(11-12 year olds by April 30th)

Overview:

  • Players are introduced to leading off bases and pick-off moves at this level in addition to longer distances between bases and the pitching mound and home plate.
  • In Bronco we strive to develop proficiency in pitching, catching, hitting, base running, fielding, and throwing skills, as well as continue to develop a better understanding of the concepts and strategies of the game. Like Shetland, Pinto, and Mustang emphasis is placed on keeping the game moving, providing as many "touch opportunities" as possible and having a fun, positive experience.
  • Team rosters of no more than 12 players (only 9 play in the field).
  • 3 outs or 5 runs max per inning for first 4 innings. 5th and 6th innings are unlimited runs.

  • Two games per week and one or two practices per week.
  • Scorebook is kept.
  • Paid adult and/or youth umpires.
