Teams may have some skill players, but also many inexperienced players. Some players will still be learning the rules of Slo-Pitch, meaning that the flow of the game will not always be natural, due to players having limited experience in batting, base running, fielding, and pitching.
The following points describe the level of play that should be expected:
- Most batters will not place hits, and will concentrate primarily on making contact with the ball.
- Pitchers will likely not throw strikes consistently.
- Fielding errors and base-running mistakes will happen more frequently. Not all players will understand lead-offs, tagging-up, force plays or sacrifice flies.
- Teams might rotate players throughout the field each inning, as opposed to playing designated positions for the entire game.
