Wartburg’s Hitting League will have an emphasis toward quality instruction while using team and individual competition as a tool for motivation.  We encourage individuals as well as teams to sign up.  Prizes will be awarded to the top individuals in each division and recognition will be given to the outstanding hitting leaders in each division for two competitions.

The league will consist of three sessions that will run from 1:00 pm to 4:15 pm on Sunday and 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm on Monday evening. Because we want to keep the quality of instruction at a high level we will limit the number of individuals per session to 24 hitters, or 4 hitters per station.

The Knights Baseball Winter Hitting League offers:

  • One convenient location – The Wartburg-Waverly Sports & Wellness Center located on the campus of Wartburg College. We will be using the field house and the four drop-down cages in this $35 million facility.
  • Personalized instruction by Wartburg baseball staff and players.
  • Weekly posting of updated team and personal standings.
  • Each player will receive a league T-shirt.
  • A chance to be involved in pitching league also, because divisions for both camps will run at opposite times.
