NEW DIVISIONS FOR OYBL 2015

This year OYBL will change how its divisions are structured.  We will now have 4 distinct divisions grouped by age.

  • 11-12 Little League Division

  • 9-10 Little League Division

  • 7-8 Coach Pitch Division (this division will be the closest thing to what was the Minor League)

  • 4-6 T-ball Division( T-ball will no longer be a coach pitch option, it will strictly be T-ball only)

Players that are 10, 8 & 6 yrs old will have the option to be considered to play up in the higher divisions.  These players will only be selected if our #’s allow it and the player is willing to play up.  We expect very few if any 10 yr olds to be drafted up.  We do however expect and encourage a large # of 8 yr olds to be drafted up a division.  6 yr olds will basically have the option to either play Tball or Coach Pitch at the parent’s discretion.  We would encourage any 6 yr old that has never played T-ball to play 1 year of T-ball before joining the Coach Pitch Division.

All 8-12 yr old players will need to tryout for the 9-10 & 11-12 Little League Division however; ALL PLAYERS will be selected to their age group.  Everyone MAKES a team.  The entire league will be redrafted.

The decision to change our league was not taken lightly.  The change was discussed by current and former board members and coaches for months.  The main reasons to make this change-

  • Player Safety- children playing within their own age groups

  • Everyone makes a team- 12 yr olds that didn’t make Little League had no outlet to play baseball and players will no longer have to travel to the northern end to play Little League baseball

  • Player Development- Younger players will be able to contribute and gain meaningful play time at all levels

If you have any questions regarding the new divisions or any other league matter, please contact Joe Healy, jhealy1414@yahoo.com or 301-616-9053.
