Baseball Programs

In 2023, Northern Lights Little League will directly offer programs in Baseball. Registration will begin no later than November 1, 2022 and end either in February or early March 2023 OR until a division is full for baseball.

Baseball Programs (Tryouts required for Player Pitch, Major, and Junior to place players. All players that sign up will make a team).

Tee Ball (Ages 4-6) -- up to 10 teams with 9 players on each team (90 total players), assuming we have enough volunteer Team Managers

The goal is for players to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. Players hit a ball off a batting tee. Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching. The primary goals of Tee Ball are to have fun, to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball, and allow them to experience the value of teamwork.

Practices will start in March and games will start in April and end at the end of June.  Expect around 12 games.

Minor League Coach Pitch (Ages 6-8) -- up to 10 teams with 10-11 players on each team (100-110 total players), assuming we have enough volunteer Team Managers

The goal of this Minor League is to prepare children for eventual selection to a Player Pitch team. Please note: we are no longer using machines and are moving back to 100% coach pitch.

Teams in this league most likely will participate in an end of season tournament.

Typically, players will be assigned to teams based on age.

Practices will start in March and games will start in April and end at the end of June. Expect around 14 games.

Minor League Player Pitch (Ages 9-11) -- up to 10 teams with 12 players on each team (120 total players), assuming we have enough volunteer Team Managers

The goal of this Minor League is to prepare children for eventual selection to a Major League team. In this league players pitch but have exceptions to some of the rules followed in the Majors League to help instruct children more. Teams in this league most likely will participate in an end of season tournament.

An All-Star team, or teams, from all teams in this league may be compiled and compete in Districts.

Players will have to attend the tryouts in February for proper placement. Players that register in Minor Player Pitch and Major divisions may be moved in between the two divisions based on results from the tryouts. Please note: 12 years olds are not allowed to play in Player Pitch and will make a Major team. 

Practices will start in March and games will start in April and end at the end of June. Expect around 16 games.

Major (Ages 10-12) -- up to 8 teams with 12 players on each team (96 total players), assuming we have enough volunteer Team Managers

This is the league that Little League is known for and is the league that has the formal Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA. These teams follow all Little League rules.

Intermediate (50-70) or Junior (Ages 12-15) -- As many as sign up and assuming we have enough volunteer Team Managers

These are technically two separate programs where Intermediate is for 12-13 year olds and Junior is for 13-15 year olds. Intermediate uses 50-foot pitching distance and 70-foot base paths whereas Junior uses a full size baseball field of 60-foot pitching distance and 90-foot base paths. Both programs offer a full range of tournament play, including a World Series.

NLLL will combine these two divisions for registration purposes and then based on the age groups of the players that register and the number of potential teams from other nearby Little Leagues, we MAY then create both Intermediate and Junior teams or just Junior teams.

Players will have to attend the tryouts in February for proper placement.

Practices will start in March and games will start in April and end at the end of June. Expect around 18-20 games.

Senior (Ages 14-16) -- As many as sign up and assuming we have enough volunteer Team Managers

This is a program using full size baseball field of 60-foot pitching distance and 90-foot base paths and offers a full range of tournament play, including a World Series.

Senior baseball starts later than all other programs since most of these players are in high school. Practices will begin based on Team Manager's schedule and games will start early to mid May and will end at the end of June. Expect around 12-14 games.
