Mizzou Hitting Experience Website

COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou baseball has announced the Mizzou Hitting Experience, a brand new competitive learning experience for children in grades 5-12. The experience is designed to help baseball players learn and grow as hitters. Our belief is that we must learn how to compete and we must learn how to push ourselves to become great. With the hitting experience, hitters will have a great opportunity to do just that. We also believe that the guest speakers that you will have an opportunity to hear speak will offer some advice, encouragement, expertise, etc., that will hopefully translate to becoming a better baseball player.

The Hitting Experience will take place every Sunday from September 21st - November 9th at the McArtor Hitting Facility, located at Taylor Stadium, on the campus of the University of Missouri. The experience will run from 6-9PM on those Sundays with the specific game times being: 6-6:30, 6:30-7, 7:30-8, 8-8:30, and 8:30-9.

There will be three separate divisions (subject to change depending on how many kids we have sign up). The divisions are as followed:

3rd-5th grade
6th-8th grade
High School

The teams will be comprised of 3-5 players. You have the ability to sign up as a team or sign up as an individual.

If there is a week that you are unable to fill out your team with at least 3 players you will be forced to forfeit for that week. However, the game will still go on so that every kid has the opportunity to score as an individual while still getting their swings in for the week.

The games and the rules within the games will vary from week to week. For example, one week might consist of a game where the players hit off the machine. Hitting it off the machine would be worth 2 points, off the back net without hitting the ground or top would be worth 2 points, line drives to the side past a certain designated area would be worth 1 point, a ground ball would be worth 0 points, and a pop up that hit the top of the cage would be worth -1 point. For that particular game, there would be 10 at bats per inning.
