Placement Guidelines - Baseball

The cutoff date to determine a baseball player's league age is based on their year of birth.  Please refer to the Little League age charts to determine your child's league age.

BB Level

League Age

Description

Fee

T-Ball

4-6

Children league age 4 to 5 typically play T-Ball.  New players of league age 6 may find this to be a good fit as well. Young players must be able to follow directions and be willing to participate.  This is a training ground for our youngest players.  Coed

$140

Rookie

6-7

Six-year-olds may play at the Rookie (coach pitch) level if they are comfortable catching, throwing, and swinging at a pitched ball. Most children league age 7 play at the Rookie level if they have learned to catch balls thrown at face level and above with the glove held vertically rather than horizontally and are comfortable hitting a ball pitched by an adult.  In this division, batters will hit off a tee, but transition to soft toss pitching.   Coed

$180

Sluggers

7-8

Instructional league aiming to bridge the gap between Rookie and AAA. Players at this level are beginning to make plays in the field, and can safely handle a ball thrown at face level (or deflect if not yet catching).  The player successfully puts the ball in play in most coach-pitch at bats. Slugger games will be comprised of six 3-out innings, use a soft-core baseball, and feature coach pitching. Emphasis is player safety and development.  Girls 7-8 may consider transitioning to our softball program.  Coed

$190

AAA BB

8-10

Most players at this level have learned to consistently catch balls thrown at face level and above with the glove held vertically rather than horizontally. The player successfully puts the ball in play in most coach-pitch at bats. Players in this division will face a standard "hard" baseball. Games follow standard baseball rules, with kids pitching, but have modifications (coach pitching after 4 balls, limited stealing) to encourage player development. May be subject to player assessment.  Coed

$210

Minors BB*

9-11

Players participate in player assessments and, depending on their fielding and batting abilities, are drafted to play in the Minors or Majors division. Based on ability, players 10 and under may be placed at the AAA level for further player development and playing time. Most 11 year olds will play in this division.  Player assessments are only used to equalize the formation of teams and not to determine whether a player plays in the league or not.

$255

Majors BB*

11-12

Players participate in player assessments and, depending on their fielding and batting abilities, are drafted to play in the Minors or Majors divisions. A player league age 11 is not automatically rostered in the Majors division.  Player assessments are only used to equalize the formation of teams and not to determine whether a player plays in the league or not.

$255

Intermediates / Juniors BB

13-14

Intermediate / Juniors provide an alternate playing experience versus more expensive select ball options.  Play is more relaxed than select ball, but teams still play for league championships and field all-star teams.  Intermediates take place on fields with 70' base paths, Juniors play 90'.

$285

Seniors BB

15-16

Depending on interest a Seniors division will be implemented.
