Baseball and Softball League Definitions
Levels of All Star Baseball will be held from Coach Pitch to Senior. Select Softball teams will be added based on player interest.

 

BLASTBALL! – 3 years old

BLASTBALL! is a fast paced action game for kids that is EXTREMELY EXCITING. It teaches baseball fundamentals – hitting, running, throwing, and fielding while emphasizing the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship. All equipment will be supplied for this league.

 
T-BALL – 4-6 years old

This league will teach the fundamentals of T-ball – hitting, running, throwing, and fielding. Games will be played with a safety ball. This league will begin to introduce players to the next league of T-ball. Score is not kept and rules are designed to maximize participation: an inning is completed once each child has had a turn at bat and all extra players of the defensive team play in the outfield every inning. To encourage the defensive team to try to make plays, there are no extra bases on overthrows and runners may not advance after the ball is in possession of an infielder. This league emphasizes the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.

 
Coach Pitch – 7-8 years old boys and girls. (Girls may opt for Mite Softball at this age level.)

This coach pitch league is intended to be a logical transition from tee-ball to player-pitch baseball/softball. Players develop the skills of batting, fielding and base running in this minimally competitive league while learning the rules that closely resemble those of baseball. Players are taught to bat at a ball that is safely pitched to them by their own coach. Emphasis is always placed on having fun, player safety, and sportsmanship!

 
Minor baseball / Mite Girls Softball

This is the first league where players will be pitched to by a player on the opposing team. Players will continue to develop the skills of batting, fielding and base running. Baseball rules apply with a few modifications to aid in developing pitching and batting.  Some travel for games is required.

 
Major baseball / Squirt Softball

These two leagues are the next levels of baseball. All baseball rules apply. Players will continue to develop the skills of batting, fielding and base running.  Some travel for games is required.

 
Junior and Senior baseball / Pee Wee and Bantam Girls Softball

Emphasis is on skills development and strategic play. Teams will travel throughout the region to compete against other Districts.
