Fall baseball is designed to transition players to the next level in baseball and strengthen their playing abilities. Fall ball players get a boost in confidence when moving up to a new level. Transition players almost always need some time to adjust to the next level, whether it’s batting from a machine, facing live kid pitching, or adapting to steals and pick-offs on a new size field, there is always a learning curve for any player moving up to the next level. Fall ball players get a jump on the curve by playing at the next level before most of the other players.
The season begins just after Labour Day weekend and ends around Thanksgiving, weather dependent. Teams should expect to have 1-2 tournaments, 6-10 exhibition and/or league games, and 1-2 practices per week.
