Fall Ball

Little League Fall Baseball & Softball Registration is now Open.  Register by 8/15/2014 and save $15.00 per player!

 

Baseball registration has closed.  Softball is still open. 

 

More information to be available after we have the district fall ball meeting this week.  Should have information by 9/1/2014. 

 

Ages 5-11 (Spring 2014 Ages)

 

Little League Fall Ball runs from 9/2 - end of October.  It is a relaxed season that gives players an opportunity to work on skill development and have fun.  Games are played against other local towns in an interleague format.  There are no standings, playoffs or championships.  All games are usually held on Friday nights, Saturday and Sundays ( though on occasion there may be a game schedule during the week) .  Practices generally are one night during the week.    We fully expect that kids are playing other sports and involved in other fall activities so we set rosters so players have the opportunity to do fall baseball and the other activities. 

 Please click on the register button below to access our online registration system.

2014 Little League Baseball & Softball Division Descriptions

2014 Little League Baseball Divisions

The Grapefruit Region is an all T Ball Division for 5 year old boys and girls.  In this region the focus will be on learning the basics of the game, rules, positions and having fun.  All players will receive a T shirt and hat.  This program will run mid April through early June. 

The Cooperstown Region is an all coach-pitch region.  In this region, there is no stealing, and no advancing on overthrows.  However, in preparing players for actually playing baseball, a team’s batting half of an inning is over after 3 outs are made or 5 runs are scored.  There will not be any standings or playoffs in this region. 

In the Great Lakes Region, we phase in player pitching starting with a few innings per game and progressing to all player-pitching approximately midway through the season.  Base stealing is also phased in during the season, and initially base runners are held up when a ball hit to the outfield reaches the infield.  This Region is designed to transition players from a coach pitch to baseball.  There will not be any standings and the playoff seedings will be a random pull from the hat. Teams will be limited to 5 runs per inning.

The Southeast Region features all player-pitch action and unlimited stealing throughout the season.  There will not be any standings and the playoff seedings will be a random pull from the hat. Teams will be limited to 5 runs per inning. 

The Mid-Atlantic Region features all player-pitch action and unlimited stealing throughout the season. There will be standings and the playoff seedings will be based on regular season results. Teams will be limited to 5 runs per inning.

The  New England Region is our most competitive Region and features all player-pitch action and unlimited stealing throughout the season. There is no limit on runs per inning and drop 3rd strike will be played.  There will be standings and the playoff seedings will be based on regular season results.

 

2014 Little League Softball Divisions

T Ball

The Grapefruit Region is an all T Ball Division for 5 year old boys and girls.  In this region the focus will be on learning the basics of the game, rules, positions and having fun.  All players will receive a T shirt and hat.  This program will run mid April through early June.

 

Rookie Division

The Rookie division is for girls ages 6 to 8. No batting tees are used at the strictly coach-pitch Rookie level, which is designed to teach girls the basics of softball and give them a feel for playing at higher levels. All games are played on a full-sized softball field. Innings within games are marked by defensive teams attempting to get three outs or batting once around, and coaches are encouraged to keep accurate batting counts to determine strikeouts. Teams may practice once or twice per week and games are often scheduled once or twice per week. Games between in-house teams are supplemented by home and away games against other Mercer County area Little League Rookie programs. There will not be any standings or playoffs in the Rookie division.


Minors Division

The Minors division is for girls ages 8 to 10. This division also emphasizes basic skills, but players may also be asked to work on advanced skills at certain positions. Girls in the Minors division will pitch to opposing batters, but will yield to coach pitching should a batter accrue four balls. Players will pitch from a mound measuring 35 feet from home plate. Each team is limited to a five-run maximum per inning, and games may be called (at the discretion and agreement of coaches from both teams) after four innings if either team is leading by 10 runs or more. Runners may steal bases in the Minors division, only after a pitched ball has crossed the plate. Girls who are age eight have the option of playing either in the Rookie or Minors division depending on their skill level. Additionally, 10-year old girls who have shown higher ability have the option of playing either at the Minors level or in the Majors division (consisting of 10-to-12 year olds).

Teams may practice once or twice per week and games are often scheduled between once and three times per week. Games between in-house teams are supplemented by home and away games against other Mercer County area Little League Minors programs. Standings will be kept and playoffs will be held in the Minors division. An All-Star Minors team may be formed to compete at the District Little League level for post-season play.



Majors Division

The Majors division is for girls ages 10 to 12. Basic skill development is still stressed at the Majors level, but some players may asked to concentrate on mastering the subtleties of specific positions. This division requires that pitching be done by players only, from a mound measuring 40 feet from home plate. Unlike the Minors and Rookie divisions, the dropped-third-strike rule is enforced in the Majors. The dropped-third-strike rule allows batters, under certain circumstances, to attempt to reach first base safely should a third strike be dropped by the catcher. Players may steal bases once the ball has left the pitcher’s hand. Each team is limited to a five or six runs per inning (depending on rules used by opposing teams), and games may be called (at the discretion and agreement of coaches from both teams) after four innings if either team is leading by 10 runs or more.

Teams may practice once or twice per week and games are often scheduled between once and three times per week. Games between in-house teams are supplemented by home and away games against other Mercer County area Little League Majors programs. Standings will be kept and playoffs will be held in the Majors division. An All-Star Majors team may be formed to compete at the District Little League level for post-season play.
