Rookies/Minors Division – Tuesdays & Thursdays 

Majors Division – Mondays & Wednesdays

Modified Field Division – Mondays & Wednesdays

Full Field Division – Tuesdays & Thursdays

 

The expectation is that there will be no scheduled Sunday league games, except for the possibility of makeup games.  Additional practices are scheduled on a team by team basis during the week.

Duluth 709 Baseball will be following Gopher State/MYAS bat rules. This allows for the use of USSSA 1.15, USA and Wood Bats to be used as part of regular game play.
