For the upcoming baseball season, the Villa Hills Longhorns Athletic Association will again be offering youth “Instructional” baseball. Because of the success in previous years, we offer both a "Tee Ball" option and a "Machine Pitch" option. The Villa Hills Longhorns will again offer Instructional Tee Ball to our young athletes (normally ages 4-5). Also, we will offer a local league for our intermediate baseball players, with a "Machine Pitch" program (to replace the previous "Coach Pitch"). This will allow our players (normally ages 6-7) to get better, more consistent pitching while also preparing them for their entry into 8U "Machine Pitch" in the 2nd grade. More details are available on the registration page at each level.
The Longhorns do not specifically mandate certain age ranges to the Tee Ball & Machine Pitch levels, as we think this is a decision parents should make based on their own child’s skill level. The general “rule of thumb” is that any first-time player should start with Tee Ball, and progress to Coach Pitch after 1-2 years or when their skill level dictates.
These leagues are created & supported to make baseball a fun, learning experience for all kids. All practices & games are local (Villa Madonna & Franzen Fields in Villa Hills), and all games are played on Saturday mornings/early afternoons.
