TEE-BALL DIVISION

Tee Ball Baseball is for boys and girls 4-5 years old (with a local option for 6- and/or 7-year-olds) who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding.

MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL DIVISION

Minor League Baseball programs for boys and girls may be operated within each division for younger players with less experience. The minor league may be players ages 7-11.

Divisions may be established within the Minor League for "machine pitch," "coach-pitch" or "player-pitch." By local option, a player who is league-age 6 (by April 30) for the current season and has played a year in Tee Ball may be "moved up" to a coach-pitch division.

A local league might have its 7-8-year-olds in the Minor League Coach Pitch Division, while its 9-10-year-olds are in the Minor League Player-Pitch Division. However, by local option, some of the 9-year-olds could "play down" in the coach-pitch division, and some of the 8-year-olds could "play up." This is entirely the choice of the local league board of directors.

9-10 YEAR OLD BASEBALL DIVISION

The 9-10 Year Old Baseball Division for boys and girls was established as a tournament program in 1994.

It gives children of this age the opportunity to experience tournament competition, up to state level.

Players on these teams can be chosen from among Major Division and/or Minor Division teams. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet.

LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL (OR THE MAJOR DIVISION)

The local league has an option to choose a Tournament Team (or "All Stars") of 11-12-year-olds from within this division, and the team may enter the International Tournament.

JUNIOR LEAGUE BASEBALL DIVISION

The Junior League Baseball Division is a program for boys and girls ages 12-14, using a conventional 90-foot diamond with a pitching distance of 60 feet, 6 inches. Modified diamond dimensions may be used during the regular season.
