10 MWS Devils Program
The 10U Devils team is an introductory year for the players to the Devils Baseball program. The focus is to provide a strong developmental foundation, coupled with the teaching of some transitional elements, such as leading from a base, stealing, and working from a stretch while pitching. The players compete on a diamond with a 46-foot distance from the mound to home plate, and 65-foot base paths. This is all in preparation for the following year, when they transition to a 50-foot mound-to-home distance, and 70-foot base paths—commonly called an "intermediate diamond." Emphasis during winter months is on mechanics as well as to prepare the player for the spring season.
