Tee Ball provides very basic introduction to baseball including positioning, hitting, fielding, throwing, catching, sportsmanship and the basic rules of baseball. Tee Ball instruction and games will be centered on the kids hitting off of fixed tees.
Instructional baseball provides an atmosphere for teaching/improving the basics of baseball in a non-competitive game setting including hitting a pitched ball, fielding, throwing, catching, base running, sportsmanship and knowledge of the basic rules of baseball. Instructional baseball is a coach-pitch league intended to prepare participants for Minors baseball, a player-pitch league. Baseball league age 5 and 6 year-old players must have played at least 1 year of T-ball and may be asked to attend a group evaluation prior to entry into the Instructional League.
Minors baseball provides a positive experience for the participants and introduces players to a higher level of play in preparation for graduation to little league Majors baseball. This includes a continued emphasis on learning the fundamentals of the game and instruction on the finer points and strategies of baseball. The goal of Minors is to develop players of different ages at different positions in preparation for majors in a more competitive atmosphere still while maintaining a high level of sportsmanship in a positive team environment. A player evaluation will be held for all minors registrants. .
Majors baseball raises the level of competition for the players, while continuing the emphasis on player development. All 11 & 12 year olds will be registered as major players. All players registered for majors will be required to attend a player evaluation in order to be eligible to be drafted onto a majors team. This division will revert back to the bat rule as adopted within the 2020 Little League Rule Book Rule 1.10 and wood bats will not be mandatory for this division for 2020.
Juniors/Seniors baseball continues the emphasis on player development as the players experience the big diamond. These divisions travel to other towns to play.
Minor softball and Major softball follow the same principles as baseball but are for girls only. These divisions travel to other towns to play.
Sports Illustrated Play was our registration vendor last year, they merged and have become Sports SignUp Play, so your log in information is the same. Please remember to update any information that might have changed, especially phone numbers, home and email addresses, and school information.
As of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard was implemented. Only Little League-approved baseball bats that are stamped with the Little League USABat License will be allowed. Little League® International has assembled an online resource page: http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo.htm dedicated to the Bat standard enacted in 2018. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
For the 2020 season, the majors baseball division will revert back to the bat rule as adopted within the 2020 Little League Rule Book Rule 1.10 non-wood and laminated bats that bear the USA Baseball logo signifying the bat meets the USABat – USA Baseball’s Youth Bat Performance Standard. Wood bats as specified within Rule 1.10 are also allowed. Wood bats are NOT mandatory for the majors division in 2020. Players do have the option to use their own wood bat if they wish.
For those of you considering the purchase of a wood bat, see the FAQs section for general information. The wood bats approved for use in the Major League Division must be solid, one-piece wood bats (typically ash, maple or birch) that adhere to Little League’s regulations. These bats will be allowed for play with or without the USABat licensing mark.
BATS NOT PERMITTED FOR USE: Multi-piece wood bats that may have the USA Baseball mark approved for play including two-piece wood bats, composite wood bats, laminated wood bats, bamboo, bonded wood bats and any wood bat that could be defined as an ‘experimental’ design.
