Age Definition

A player’s division assignment is based on his age as of April 30 of the following year. Example: If a player will turn 11 on March 20, 2017 he would normally play in the Bronco division for the 2017 spring season. A player who wishes to play in an older division may do so. Only under very limited circumstances, and only with full board approval, is a player allowed to play in a younger division.

Game Scheduling

Teams are generally scheduled for no more than two games each week. Games are scheduled on weekday evenings and on Saturday mornings, occasionally on Saturday afternoons or evenings.  Pee-wee games are only on Saturday mornings. Shetland weekday games are only at 5:30pm.

Pee-wee Division (ages 3 - 4)
This is the first step in learning and playing baseball. The main objective is to have fun and learn the fundamentals - catching, throwing, hitting & base running. Only a tee is used for hitting. Only 6-8 players per team. Every player bats and plays the field. The inning is over after all players have batted. No strikeouts, outs recorded or scores kept. Coaches can elect to have players always be safe to teach base running. Parents are encouraged to be in the field to assist their child. All games played on Saturday mornings. As much as possible teams are formed by neighborhood or by coach request. Each player is awarded a trophy at the end of the season.

Shetland Division (ages 5 - 6)
Players normally use a Tee to hit the ball off of, but are allowed the option of taking swings at a pitching machine. Emphasis is on learning the game and not meant to be competitive. Scorebooks are used but only to keep track of runs scored and the batting order; scores are not announced or recorded. All players are allowed in the field on defense and coaches are allowed to be on the field to advise them. Play stops when an infielder holds up the ball. On offense all players bat. A team bats until three outs are recorded or six runs are scored. As much as possible teams are formed by neighborhood or by coach request. Each player is awarded a trophy at the end of the season.

Pinto Division (ages 7 - 8)
A pitching machine is used to get the players familiar with hitting a pitched ball. Like T-ball the emphasis is on learning the game and the games should only be mildly competitive. To limit runaway scores a team which is ahead is only allowed to score six runs each inning. A team is allowed ten players and one coach on defense. Play stops when an infielder holds up the ball. On offense all players are put in the batting order and are allowed five swings at the ball. Catching equipment is used but primarily to get players used to it. As much as possible teams are formed by neighborhood or by coach request. Each player is awarded a trophy at the end of the season.

Mustang Division (ages 9 - 10)
First level of play at which real baseball is played. Players are taught pitching, catching, leadoffs, stealing, etc. There are two divisions: Competitive - where coaches may protect up to an entire team of 12 players; and Recreational - where head coaches may protect 2 players (plus up to 2 more if they recruit 1 or 2 sponsors) and the remainder of the teams are formed via tryouts and a draft. Trophies are generally awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place in the regular season; medals are generally awarded for 1st & 2nd place in the tournament.

Bronco Division (ages 11 - 12)
Bases are at 70 feet; pitching distance is at 50 feet.
