The Minors B Division is the third level of play in Little League your child will experience as they progress through elementary school. It is generally open to players 7-9 years of age. It utilizes a machine to pitch the ball and teams have 10 defensive players in the field. At this level you will see dramatic improvements in your child as they take a big leap to this style of ball. The focus of this level is fundamentals, development, safety and fun. Coaches are on the field with the players offering instruction before during and after each play.
Teams are created to follow school and or neighborhood affiliations so players can enjoy the season with close friends. All games are house games and played a Maetzold Field. The score is kept in these games, but the season standings are not. The regular seasons is followed by a Minors B tournament. Minors B finds a nice blend between recreational and competitive baseball where all players can feel comfortable playing.
This program is intended to encourage baseball "practice" or just activity outside of HALL scheduled and coordinated practices and games for our T-ball, Minors C, and Minors B level players. Track the time your player plays catch with mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother, sister; plays sandlot with his or her friends; practices running the bases in the back yard; etc.
