Minor A is the first division where batters face players pitching with regulation hard baseballs. The emphasis is on development of baseball skills and team play. For safety reasons, all players applying to Minor A must attend the Minor A evaluations. These evaluations are also used to help balance the teams in this division. Balanced teams take precedence over teammate/friend requests. At least one season of Minor B is strongly recommended before playing Minor A. Minor A games are 5 innings, and there are limits on the runs per inning, except in the fifth inning, which has unlimited runs. Pitching limits must be adhered to for player protection. All players are rotated through the infield and outfield positions and all players bat through the rotation. The season begins in April and games are played at the Minor A diamond at Dunbar Memorial Park (33rd Avenue and Dunbar) in the early evening or on the weekend. There are usually 2 practices and 2 games per week. Team equipment, caps and socks are provided. Fitted grey baseball pants (with belt loops) are required. Players must have their own baseball glove and a protective cup is mandatory. Their own batting helmet is highly encouraged.
