Minors baseball is a kid pitch baseball league for players in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade on April 1st.  The goal of the program is to provide a positive environment in which participants enjoy playing baseball and continue to improve skills.  Pitching and base stealing are added at this level. An umpire calls balls and strikes.

Typically, teams practice for one hour, once per week and play one game per week.  Weekly games are played on Tuesday evening and some games on Wednesday evening.  Games should start the second or third week of May and will end with Post Season Tournament Games during the July 30th-August 1st weekend.  Practices typically begin in late April after the city determines the fields are suitable.  Due to the limited number of fields, practices may be on Sunday through Thursday nights.  Practice time/locations will be set after coordinating with coaches.



To balance teams, we will have all parents register their child and give an honest grading of their child's baseball skills.

1 - 5 Rating (1 = Very little experience, 5 = Above average for age) in the following skills:

  • Hitting 

  • Throwing/Pitching - Accuracy & Speed

  • Catching - Grounders & Popups 



The League Director will be responsible for rostering teams.

Players are generally assigned to teams in the following manner:

  • Satisfy player family relationships.

  • Satisfy player/coach preference (up to 2 requests) in order by registration date and time.

  • Assign players based on parent evaluation & grade.

  • Assign any remaining players wherever the player fits.

Ideally all preferences could be satisfied. Unfortunately, this is difficult due to constraints such as balancing the total number of players on each team. Registering early can significantly contribute to having preferences satisfied. In any case, please encourage players to form additional friendships this summer.



Volunteers are essential to the program.  Please consider volunteering to be a coach or team manager.  If you intend to be a head coach, an assistant coach, or a team manager, please indicate this when you register your child.  Head Coaches can have up to 2 Assistant Coaches on their team, so please indicate this during Registration as well.
