Fall Ball is a great opportunity for Little League players to improve their skills and prepare for the next level of play. Here are a few benefits of playing Fall Ball:
More experience and opportunities: Fall Ball provides a wealth of options for league presidents and district administrators, with a great deal of flexibility in scheduling games and practices. This allows players to receive the attention they need, especially those transitioning from tee-ball and coach pitch to older age groups.
Developmental league: Fall Ball is generally seen as a developmental league for young players to improve their skills and get ready for the next level of baseball. It is less competitive than the regular season, which allows coaches to focus on player development and gives players the chance to try new positions.
More reps: Fall Ball is a great time for reps, reps, and more reps. Players can get extra batting practice, extra turns in the field, and learn the fundamentals of more positions. The goal for Fall Ball should be to develop skills to help the player advance next year.
The weather - Specifically for us in Arizona, it starts to get nice enough to be outside and enjoy the cooler temperatures (FINALLY!)
Fall Ball is a fun addition to the competitive spring/summer seasons, and it is a great way to strengthen players' abilities. It provides a less rigid schedule, more opportunities for player development, and a chance to try new positions.
