Baseball League Definitions

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.

ROOKIE T-BALL – 4 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. All extra players on the defensive team will 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 an infielder is in possession of the ball. This league emphasizes the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.

T-BALL - 5-6 years old
This league will continue to teach the fundamentals of baseball- hitting, throwing, running, and fielding. Games will be played with outs and score will be kept. Most of the other rules are similar or identical to those of baseball, though the game is played on a smaller field. Emphasis is always placed on having fun, player safety, and sportsmanship.

Coach Pitch - 7-8 years old
The coach pitch league is intended to be a logical transition from T-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.

10U – 9-10 years old
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, throwing, fielding and base running. Baseball rules apply with a few modifications to aid in developing pitching and batting.

12U & 14U - 12-14 years old
These two leagues are the next levels of baseball. All baseball rules apply. Players will continue to develop the skills of batting, throwing, fielding and base running.
