Rookie Tee Ball
This is our tee ball division for 4 year olds and first year 5 year olds. This division is just to get them on the field and learn the basics of the game of baseball.

TeeBall
This division of teeball will reinforce the skills learned in rookie teeball and will get into more depth of the basics. This is for second year 5 years olds and 6 year olds. This division is where we will start to teach them the plays of the game along with repeated fundamentals as a base.




MINOR B Baseball
Kids aged 7-8 who are ready to develop additional baseball skills can join the Minor B Division.   Newcomers aged 7-10 can also elect to begin Little League by playing in this division, instead of TBall.   

The emphasis in Minor B is on teaching the game of baseball.   Specially-adapted playing rules are used to match the challenges of the game to the appropriate age-level skills of the players.   

For example, we start the season using Coach's Pitch to permit kids to learn how to hit moving pitches.   As the season progresses, and players' skills develop, players are eventually used as Pitchers, with various safeguards to protect their egos and move the game along.

Kids play on evenly matched Co-ed teams, and "must play" rules ensure that everyone gets to participate.   Coach's emphasize fun and instruction.




MINOR A Baseball
Minor A is an instructional baseball division for boys and girls aged 9-10 who, by reason of age and other factors are not drafted to play on MAJOR division teams.

The MINOR A division is a developmental division, with the objective of preparing players for advancement to the MAJORS division.   Players are assigned to balanced co-ed teams, which typically play two games a week during the Spring season.   The rules for Minor A Baseball are nearly identical to those for MAJORS division play, with the exception that all players bat, regardless of their defensive positions.    This means a player will always bat in turn, even if he/she did not play in the field (defensively) during that inning.

Minor A players aged 9, and 10 are eligible for selection to, and participation in, various post-season All-Star tournaments.




MAJOR Baseball
The MAJOR Division is for boys and girls aged 9-12 years old. Players who have not played in the Seminole Little League MAJOR during the past season must attend a tryout, and may be drafted onto a regular season team. All players eligible for the Minor A division must attend a Tryout in January of each year. To learn more about this year's Tryouts, email us.

Most of the rules in the MAJOR division are recognizable by fans of amatuer and professional baseball.   Mandatory play rules ensure that each player participates in games.

MAJOR players aged 11-12 are eligible for the post-season All-Star Tournament, which culiminates in the Nationally Televised Little League World Series!

Other Major players are eligible for special 9 year old and 10 year old Post Season All-Star teams.

Special playing rules are used to match the challenges of the game to the appropriate age-level skills of the players.   For example, we use Coach's Pitch (using a pitching machine), to permit kids to learn how to hit moving pitches.   As the season progresses, players are eventually used as Pitchers, with various safeguards to protect their egos and move the game along.

Kids play on evenly-matched teams, and "must play" rules ensure that everyone gets to participate.   The field is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 35 feet.
