FARM BASEBALL (7-9)

Farm Baseball is our next level after Rookie Baseball. There is no mechanical pitching machine like rookie, however there is a combination of player (with pitch counts) and coach pitching. The final two weeks of the season there is purely player pitching. Typical age for this division is 8 year olds. There are some advanced 7 year olds in this division, as well as any 9 year olds that do not assess to the Minors Baseball Division. Pitching distance is 40' and bases are 60 feet.

Based on the  Little League Baseball Age Division Chart; Ages 7, 8, 9 may play in the Farm Division.

Restrictions: Players who are age 9 or older will require approval by 2/3 vote of Player Agent, Division Coordinator, League VP’s and President to play in Farm. The Board may make decisions for any reason the Board deems appropriate, but most importantly will be the players safety to herself and the other players in the division. Only 9 year olds that do not assess to Minors are eligible.

Offense:
With the idea that player pitching is being developed in practices, the season may start off with Coach Pitch Only. A few weeks into the season teams will advance to player and coach pitch. If a player delivers 4 balls, then a coach will come in and finish the at bat. Players can strike out, but can not walk. Pitching distance is 40-46 feet while developing strikes. There is no stealing in Farm. On offense players do have the ability to advance more than one base. 

Defense:
The game is played with 9 players on defense. 3 outs are recorded per inning or 5 run limit maximum. Pitchers will adhere to the Little League Pitch Count Rules.

** ONLY the top 1% of players "may" be considered at this level for post-season All-Star Play **
