Fall Baseball Divisions

NOTE: The age cutoff for the Fall 2020 season is 8/31/2021.  So your division would be aligned to the age of your player as of 8/31/2021.

Rookie (Ages 5-6) and Pinto (Ages 7-8)

For the Fall seasons, we typically combine these 2 age groups.  If we have enough players at each level, we will divide the groups into separate Rookie and Pinto divisions.

International (Ages 9-10)

This is the first level of kid-pitch baseball.  For the Fall season, we allow for players who will still be 8 years old by the 8/31/2021 cutoff to register for this level. However, that is not an indicator of those players being allowed to "play up" to this level for th Spring 2021 season.

Minor (Ages 10-11)

Parents of rising 11 years olds should consider registering their son/daughter for the Major divison.  Altough 11 year olds will play either Minor or Major in the Spring season, the Major divison plays on a larger field and the experience would suit them better for possibly playing Major in the Spring.

Major (Ages 11-12)

Our Major division is the first introduction to a larger field and rules are more aligned to major league baseball (leads, steals, balks).

Pony (Ages 13-14)

Pony is our transition division where players are going to be entering HS in a year or two and moving to a 90' diamond.  Our Pony division plays on an 80' diamond to help with this transion.

Colt (Ages 15-18)

Our Colt division plays on a 90' diamond and is intended for those in High School.

Fall Rec Softball Age Groups

Per softball standards, the "league age" for all players for the Fall 2020 season is the player's age on December 31, 2020:

8U - 2012 through 2014 birthdates (48 player capacity) 

10U - 2010 and 2011 birthdates (48 player capacity)

13U - 2007 through 2009 birthdates (72 player capacity)

17U - 2003 through 2006 birthdates (96 player capacity)

Due to the cancellation of the Spring 2020 season, we are allowing 2003 birthdate players who would have aged out of 17U to play this Fall.  Registration will close on August 16, 2020.


Practices will start the week of Aug 31.  Games will be on Saturdays starting Sept 12.
