The Tyro League is non-competitive league and is designed for the players to have fun while learning the basic elements of baseball: throwing, fielding, running, batting and sportsmanship.  The Tyro league is and overhand coach pitch league.  Tyro league also uses a “safe ball” to minimize chance of injury.

In April we start with practice which are usually (1) weekday evening and (1) Saturday.  The season starts in May and consists of approximately 12 games (twice per week, 1 weekday and 1 Saturday).  We work towards having the final game under the lights at Lions Park. 

After registration is completed, all participants are placed on a team by the league President.  While we cannot guarantee that any two players will be placed on the same team, we do accept requests to pair players (with a mutual friend request) and will accommodate it whenever possible.  One request per player.   We also look to group players by school when possible.

Players in this league also qualify to tryout for our Grizzlies Part-Time Travel Program, which plays a more competitive schedule of home games and 2-3 area tournaments (See Part-Time Travel Grizzlies Page).
