MINORS BASEBALL (8-11)

Minors Baseball is where there is player only pitching, with pitch counts. Based on the Little League Baseball Age Calculator typical age for this division is 9 and 10 year olds. ONLY the advanced top 5% of 8 year olds, per Assessment Scores, are eligible to play above the Farm Division.

However each year will vary for the # of players total from Majors to Minors, so it's not an exact science that can carry over year to year in determining if any 8's are eligible to begin with, aside from scores.

Most 9 year olds are placed in this division. The "majority" of 10 year olds as well, but do know the top 5% of 10 year olds may move to the Major Division based on assessment, and with the dependency on how many 12 and 11 yr olds are in the Majors Division to form teams.

11 year olds that do not assess and have not played Majors the year prior, OR do not assess high enough for Majors, will be placed in the Minors level. Pitching distance is 46 feet. Bases are 60 feet.

Offense:
Players are allowed to steal at this level. 5 run limit per inning with open innings after 4 innings. Little League 10 run mercy rule applies. Roster batting.  No drop third strike. No lead-off.

Defense:
Played with 9 players and pitchers adhere to the Little League Pitch Count Rules.

*Players in this division will qualify for post-season All-Star Play*.
