What is Mustang Baseball?

Mustang Division baseball is designed for 9-10 year olds and is to further introduce baseball rules to our young players.  At this level more advanced fundamentals are taught, especially with regards to pitching.  In addition to ensuring players have an enjoyable time, this level also introduces an elevated level of competition.  The general rules for Mustang Baseball are: 

  • Players pitch (a maximum of two innings per game)
  • Normal balls and strikes rules apply
  • No breaking balls, dropped third strikes, or balks are allowed/called
  • No leadoffs are allowed, but base stealing is permitted
