PLEASE NOTE CHANGES TO BASEBALL DIVISIONS FOR THE SPRING 2020 SEASON:

We are excited to announce some significant changes to our baseball programs for the Spring 2020 season designed to enhance the experience for all of our participants!

Minors, Majors, and Intermediate programs are being consolidated into two divisions:  Minors and Intermediate.  The Minors at ages 9-10-11 will play 46/60 and Intermediate at ages 11-12-13 will play 50/70 with regular baseball leading/stealing rules and 7 inning games.   Please review the District All-Stars section of this document for updates on selection eligibility by division.

The Intermediate division will play its regularly scheduled games on WEEKNIGHTS ONLY (Monday – Thursday), at 7:30 PM.  Any rainouts for the Intermediate division will be made up on Saturdays early evening (5PM), and on open weeknights.  Minors division will continue to play on weeknights (5:30 PM) and Saturdays.

Senior Majors games will continue to be played weeknights at 7:30 PM, and will continue to play on Saturdays but later in the day (4PM).

USA Baseball Bats are the only approved bats for all divisions except for Senior Majors.  Senior Majors division uses BBCOR (-3) bats only.

SOFTBALL SCHEDULE CHANGES

The Seniors, Majors and possibly the Minors divisions will have their schedules skewed towards games on weeknights.  There will continue to be games and other activities planned for Saturday as well (make- up games, clinics and pick-up games) but most of the regularly schedule games will be during the week.

BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL DIVISIONS STAYING THE SAME:

The Pioneers division will continue to play 2 games a week: 1 weeknight and 1 on Saturday with a combination of coach and player pitch. Coaches will also schedule practices at their discretion.

The Rookies / T-Ball division will be a 10 week program, beginning in early April and ending in June. There will be a one hour practice most weeks on a weeknight, and a one hour game each week on Saturday mornings. We are following the Official Little League tee ball plan again for the year, which will provide both a fun and structured baseball environment for all involved!  Click here for more LLB info on this program.

DISTRICT ALL-STARS:

Please note that for baseball players ages 11-13, the new alignments will not impact our District All-Star programs for selected players:

11 year old's playing Minors are eligible for the 11 year old district team

11 year old's playing Intermediate are eligible for 11, Majors, or Intermediate district teams

12 year old's are eligible for Majors (46/60 – Williamsport) or Intermediate district teams

13 year old's playing Intermediate are eligible for the Intermediate district team

13 year old's playing Senior Majors are eligible for the Juniors district team

 

NEW REGISTRATION INFO – BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL:

Players may only register for ONE Baseball or Softball division:  For baseball, 11 year olds must choose between Minors or Intermediate divisions – however they must be manager drafted to play in Intermediate.  11 year olds wishing to be considered for the Intermediate division should register as such.  11 year old players not drafted for Intermediate will automatically be transferred to the Minors division.

13 year old baseball players wishing to play 50/70 should register for the Intermediate Division; those wishing to play 60/90 should register for the Senior Majors division.

6 year old baseball or softball players who have completed two seasons of Rookies/tee ball are eligible to play in the Pioneers Division and should register as such for baseball* and for softball they must send a request to [email protected] to be moved up.

8 year old baseball or softball players who have completed two sessions of Pioneers are eligible to play in the Minors Division and should register as such for baseball* and for softball they must send a request to [email protected] to be moved up.

* For baseball, parents should only register for “up play” at these levels if their child is “baseballl ready” for the jump.  6 Year olds playing Pioneers will be playing against 8 year olds; 8 Year olds in Minors will potentially be facing pitching from 10-11 year olds.  Please use extreme discretion when making this decision.  The best baseball experience for all players is when they are aligned in the division appropriate for their skill level.
