Q: Why a draft? Sounds pretty serious.
A: A draft is the best way to evenly spread the various skill level of players throughout the league. GRLL holds a player skills assessment clinic. Each child is required to swing a bat and run to first base, field a ground ball and catch a fly ball. The player’s skills are assessed and the manager then decides what child he would like to draft in the various rounds of the draft.
