Divisions

2021 Spring Baseball Divisions (All Baseball Divisions League Ages are determined by age as of 31 August 2021)

Modified Tee Ball - Ages 4-5

Often, a family’s first introduction to Little League® is in the Tee Ball program. Tee Ball is the entry level division for players, ages 4-7. The experience is grounded in fun, fitness, and fundamentals while also being a key to growing a child’s love for the game.

We offer a modified Tee Ball/Coach Pitch Program, players can hit a ball off a batting tee or the coach. The primary goals of Tee Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork. The roster size for a Tee Ball team averages 7-10 players, with a season featuring 1-2 practices per week with one game per week. This is a 8-10 game program. Teams are formed by zip code and/or coach request. Contact [email protected] for more information.

Many of the Junior League rules will be used such as runners being permitted to lead off bases, runners may attempt to steal at any time, and allowing an on-deck batter. The diamond used is a 70-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 50 feet. Rosters will be composed of 12 players. This is a 12 - 14 game program. There will be two games played a week and an option for the coach to hold up to two practices a week. It is recommended that the team does not meet more than four times a week with games and practices. Teams are formed by a draft by the coaches with evaluations given before the season starts.

Challenger Baseball

The Challenger Division was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4-18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school, to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide. Today, more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide. Teams are set up according to abilities, rather than age, and can include as many as 15-20 players. Challenger games can be played as tee ball games, coach pitch, player pitch, or a combination of the three. Each player gets a chance at bat. The side is retired when the offense has batted through the roster, or when a pre-determined number of runs has been scored, or when three outs are recorded. Little League recommends that no score be kept during games. The Challenger players wear the same uniforms, shoulder patches and safety equipment as other Little League players.

One of the benefits of having a Challenger Division is that it encourages the use of "buddies" for the Challenger players. The buddies assist the Challenger players on the field but whenever possible, encourage the players to bat and make plays themselves. However, the buddy is always nearby to help when needed.
