2019 Spring Season Divisions and Determining Ages





League Age
Little League rules define "League Age" for baseball divisions (including t-ball) as whatever age the player will be on August 31, 2019.
Little League rules define "League Age" for softball divisions as whatever age the baseball player will be on January 1, 2019.
If you are unsure your child's "league age" feel free to use Little League's online League Age Calculator.
All age ranges below refer to league age.

Tee Ball: 4-6 years

This is for boys and girls 4-6 years old who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. The primary goals of Tee Ball are to instruct youngsters in the fundamentals of baseball and softball and allow them to experience the value of teamwork but most of all, to have fun.

Rookies (Machine Pitch or Coach Pitch) Baseball or Softball (ages 6-8)
This division is designed to expand on the fundamental skills while introducing the basic rules of baseball or softball.  Players will learn fundamental skills involved in hitting, throwing and catching. Many skill levels will be represented and no prior experience is required. League Age 9 may be considered with no prior baseball experience. This division will strive to provide balanced playing time for all players and a continuous batting order will be used. Softball players will play games with teams from other little leagues in our area.  Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in this introductory level of Little League.  After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league. 

Minors Baseball and Softball (ages 8-11 -  *8 Year Olds Must Try Out)
This division is designed to expand on the fundamental skills as players begin to pitch during the game.  The basic rules of baseball and softball are enforced with umpires.  The baseball diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet. Softball players will play with a 35-foot pitching distance, and play against teams from other area Little Leagues.
 
Majors Baseball and Softball (ages 10-12 - *10 Year Olds Must Try Out)
This is the division that ultimately competes to play in the Little League World Series. Many baseball games in this division will be against other little leagues in our District.  All 10-year-olds must try out for Majors.  Minimum playing time rules exist for this division, but line-ups will begin to reflect the Managers decisions as to skill levels of the players, a continuous batting order will be used. The baseball diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet.  The Softball field uses a 60-foot diamond and a 40 foot pitching distance.

Intermediate Baseball (ages 11-13 *11 Year Olds Must Try Out )
Junior Baseball (ages 12-14 *12 year olds must try out)
Senior Baseball (14-16 *14 year olds must try out) 

This division is player pitch, with rules that more closely resemble baseball as it is commonly played at higher levels (i.e. Lead-offs, stealing at any time, Balk rules). The diamond used for Intermediate Baseball is a 70-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 50 feet, while Junior Baseball and Senior Baseball, use a full-size 90-foot diamond.  The "Big League Baseball" division (16-18 year olds) was discontinued by Little League International before the 2017 season.

Junior Softball (ages 12-14 *12 year olds must try out)
Junior Division of Softball uses a 60-foot diamond, with 43-foot pitching distance.  Games at this level are usually against teams from other Leauges in our area.  The local league has an option to choose a Tournament Team (or "All Stars") from within this division, and the team may enter the International Tournament.  Mile High will not be chartering a Senior Division softball program for 2018.  The "Big League Softball" division (16-18 year olds) was discontinued by Little League International before the 2017 season.

This page is intended to be a summary of the different divisions available with the applicable age ranges.  For more information, please visit the Little League International Divisions of Play website.

Players may be moved from the division they choose at registration after an assessment of the player's skill level, if the player is eligible for more than one division.  If you have questions about which division is appropriate for your child, please contact the player agent.
