Hitting League Information:The Teams are comprised of four player teams who compete against other teams within their grade division (4-6). Individuals not signed up with a team will be assigned to one. The 7-12 grade hitters will be exposed to our advanced hitting experience including tee work, short toss, and live BP.

Scoring is determined by marked areas in the batting cage. Each scoring area is worth progressively more points. Each hitter gets six swings off the pitching machine. After each hitter has batted, it is considered an inning.

Instruction is provided by the Truman coaching staff and current baseball players.

The philosophy of the Bulldog Hitting League is to provide a way for young hitters to improve their skills during the offseason.

The Hitting League camp design is subject to change depending on the number of hitters signed up.
