The league age groups are as follows; 5 and 6 year olds will play in the Tee- Ball Division; 7-9 years old will play in this division. Many of the players in this league have played t-ball before and are ready to understand the rules of baseball and to concentrate on their skills in throwing, catching, running and hitting.
10-12 year old players in this division will play a minimum of two innings in the outfield and two innings in the infield. Players will continue to emphasize the basic skills of throwing, catching, running and hitting.
13-14 year old players who compete in this division will play with rules and field dimensions similar to Major League Baseball. It will be similar for the 15 and 16 year old players who compete in this division. For more information, call Deacon Willie Tipton, league commissioner, at 718-634-7192.
