    Tee Ball Baseball

    Tee Ball is for boys and girls 4-7 years of age who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. In Tee Ball, players hit a ball off a batting tee or may be pitched to by a coach. Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching. The primary goals of Tee Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork. No live pitching by players is permitted in this division. Generally, the diamond used is a 60-foot diamond, but the league has the option to use a 50-foot diamond.

    Minor League Baseball

    Minor League Baseball programs for boys and girls may be operated for younder players with less experience. The minor league may be players ages 7-12. Divisions may be established within the Minor League for "machine pitch," "coach pitch" or "player pitch." By local option, a player who is league age 6 for the current season and has played a year in Tee Ball may be "moved up" to a coach pitch division. A local league might have its 7-8 year-olds in the Minor League Coach Pitch Division, while its 9-10 year-olds are in the Minor League Player Pitch Division. However, by local option, some of the 9 year-olds could "play down" in the coach pitch division, and some of the 8 year-olds could "play up." This is entirely the choice of the local league board of directors. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet.

    Little League Baseball (or the Majors Division)

    The Little League Baseball Division (sometimes known as the Major Division) is for boys and girls ages 9-12. A local league may choose to limit its Major Division to 10, 11, and 12 year-olds, or 11-12 year-olds. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet. The local league has an option to choose a Tournament Team (or "All Stars") of 11-12 year-olds from within this division, and the team may enter the International Tournament. The culmination of the International Tournament is the Little League Baseball World Series, featuring teams from around the globe. All expenses for the teams advancing to the World Series (travel, meals, housing) are paid by Little League Baseball.

    IMPORTANT: A local league must only have ONE Major Division. For instance, if the local league has all 11-12 year-olds in the Majors and all 9-10 year-olds in another division, then the 9-10s MUST be considered a Minor Division.

    Intermediate Baseball

    The Intermediate Baseball Division is for players ages 11-13, using 70-foot bases and a pitching distance of 50 feet. Players in this division may participate in the Intermediate Division as well as either the Major Division or the Junior Division for the regular season. Once a player who particpates in any way on a Junior Division team may not particpiate in the Major Division from that point forward. Players must participate in at least 60% of the games in a division (Majors, Intermediate, Junior) to be eligible for selection to that particular division's tournament team. A player may participate in 2 divisions as defined previously for regular season play, but may participate in only 1 division of tournament play. The culmination of the International Tournament is the Intermediate Baseball World Series featuring teams from around the globe. All expenses for the teams advancing to the World Series (travel, meals and housing) are paid by Little League Baseball.

They may, however, be selected to a Junior Division Tournament team.
