Minor Division rules

All nine (9) year olds based on the little league age chart will need to participate in a skills sessions. Date TBD

Those deemed with high skill sets will be placed in the Major Division. Those who need more development will be allowed in the Minor Division.

Players will be evaluated by staff with numerous years of experience.    

Minor - Player & coach pitch. An instructional division with a focus on fundamentals and progressing players into a 'real baseball' atmosphere. Game length is 1 hour and 30 mins with a hard stop. Games will be played with safety balls until the 6th game where the division will transition into normal baseballs.

Players will pitch the ball from the pitching rubber. A player pitcher cannot walk a batter. However they can strikeout a batter. Should the player pitcher pitch 4 called balls before the batter strikes out and before there is a play in the field the coach will step into pitch.The coach pitching will continue the current count as it relates to strikes. (Example if the count in 2 strikes with 4 balls, the coach has one ball to pitch. If the count in zero strikes and 4 balls the coach has 3 balls to pitch) The coach is the only person that can walk a batter. This happens if all balls that are allowed are delivered and there is no strike out or play in the field. At this time the batter is awarded 1st base.

Stealing is allowed starting the 6th game. Runners can only advance once the ball has entered the strike zone. *There is no stealing of home plate even on passed balls.

Once three (3) outs have occurred the 1/2 inning is over.Once five (5) runs have scored the 1/2 inning is over even if three (3) outs have not occurred.

The batting order is continuous.
