The Mini Millers program offers a baseball program alternative to those currently offered in the Minneapolis community for younger baseball players in grades 2-4.
The Mini Millers provides a stepping stone program to help younger players develop their baseball skills and knowledge in the hopes of becoming competitive travel baseball players. It is a great program for players and families who are undecided if Travel Baseball is right for them, as well as families desiring a less rigorous baseball schedule.
Mini Millers will participate in up to 4 scheduled events each week ranging from practices, games, and other baseball-related events.
Mini Millers program includes –
2-3 practices a week prior to the season starting
These 1 ½ - 2 hour practices are designed to teach the proper mechanics of throwing, fielding, hitting, catching and pitching.
2 to 3 practices a week during the season
These practices will continue to focus on basic development while working on game situational play.
Practice times and location are scheduled by each individual coach as it relates to the game schedule and the Mini Miller philosophy.
Mini Millers intends to play as an independent in-house league, and generally play 2 games a week at Minneapolis Parks. Historically, games have been played at Bob Casey Field, Armatage and Phelps Parks but are not limited to those sites. Games start mid-May through mid-July, with playoffs at the middle to the end of July.
Players who are interested and qualified will have the opportunity to play on a tournament team. This option carries extra cost.
