Baseball & Softball

Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players each who take turns batting and fielding. Representatives from most of the towns in the league met in November 2017, to discuss team structure and game rules. We have restructured the grades for this summer to allow our teams to be more equal. We will be putting the following grades together: K-1 is T-ball: 2-3 is Pitching machine/Coach Pitch; 4-5 Minors; and 6-7 Majors. These changes are being made league-wide to better accommodate the change in players. Preschool will no longer have the option to play t-ball. They must have completed Kindergarten/Junior Kindergarten to be eligible to play t-ball. We are making the move to start teaching them the game of baseball/softball with outs, innings, etc. For information on each level, please click here.
