Kennewick National Baseball: 2012 Season Divisions

Select Season:  
Major 70' Division
The Major 70' Division consists of only league age 11 and 12 year old players and is the most competitive division in the league. It is intended to contain the 11 and 12yr old players with the greatest playing ability. All must participate in a tryout and then are choosen by the coaches in a draft. Undrafted 11 and 12 year olds will be placed in the Minor A draft.


Major 60' Division (formerly Minor "A")
The Minor "A" Division is made up of 10, 11, and 12 year old players. It is intended to teach the players the fundamentals of the game while providing a transition from the MinorB Division to prepare them for the Major Division as well as provide a place to play for the 12 year old players who do not get chosen or do not wish to play for a Major team. Players are drafted by Minor A coaches after a tryout.

Minor Division (Formerly Minor "B")
The Minor "B" Division is made up of 8, 9, and 10 year old players. It is intended to teach the players the fundamentals of the game while providing a transition from the Rookie Division to the MinorA and Major Divisions. Players are selected in a draft by the Minor B Coaches. No try-outs are held.

Rookie Division
The Rookie Division is made up of 6, 7   and 8 year old players and is the basic instructional division that introduces young players to the game. The emphasis in this division is learning the game and having fun, not competition. Players are placed on teams by the Rookie Rep, based on what school they attend (as numbers allow). This division utelizes a pitching machine to teach the fundamentals of hitting.

Coach-Pitch
The Coach Pitch division is made up of 4, 5, and 6 year old players. It teaches the players the fundamentals of the game without the frustration of trying to hit a pitched ball until the player is ready for that challenge. All players bat and all players play defense every inning. Players are placed on teams by the Coach Pitch Rep.
