The Cochran-Bleckley Recreation Department this week that begining with the upcoming fall ball season, all 9-10 baseball and softball games would be live pitch. The 7-8 division will do coach pitch. For GRPA summer tournaments, the 7-8 division will still be pitching machine while the 9-10 will play live pitch tournaments.
The change came via the newly formed softball and baseball subcommittees who presented it to the board. Field Supervisor Andy Brand said the decision was made to help develop talent which will benefit the middle and high school programs. He also said they'd been speaking to other area rec. departments about their moving to live pitch as well.
