League Formats

6U (kids cannot turn 7 prior to May 1st)

A developmental league where kids are first introduced to baseball. this is a coach pitch league with tees being used for players that need one. While this is not a bring-your-own-team league, efforts are made to honor as many parent requests as possible. All players play in the field and in the batting order each inning.

8U

This is a coach pitch league with players beginning to understand "why" they are making the plays they make. Grassland offers a bring-your-own-team division as well as a draft division. All players play in the field and in the batting order each inning.

10U

This is a kid pitch league with players further developing their skills while playing a game that is much closer to "real" baseball. Grassland offers a bring-your-own-team division as well as a draft division. Only nine (9) players play in the field each inning but players may not sit out consecutive innings. Every player is in the batting order each inning.

12U

This is a kid pitch league. Grassland offers a bring-your-own-team division as well as a draft division.

14U

This is a kid pitch league. Grassland offers a bring-your-own-team division as well as a draft division.

17U

Due to the few children that play baseball at this age, our 17u division is a "Bring Your Own Team" division only.  If you are a coach looking to bring an entire team to play against other area teams then please contact Chris McElhiney at [email protected]
