INFORMATION ON EACH LEVEL

5/6 T-ball                            Entry level for players 5 and 6 years of age with the focus on learning the game. The focus is on learning the game with the primary focus of making the game fun while learning the basic skills.

 

7/9 Machine Pitch            Babe Ruth introduced Machine Pitch to league play to help promote the game in an environment that promotes putting the ball in play. Players at this level are pitched to utilizing a pitching machine that is set at the same distance a pitcher would be positioned. This allows the ball to be hit into play more often giving players more opportunity to play the game.

 

8/10 Player Pitch              The player pitch division starts with the 8 year olds to 10 year olds where the game starts for young players as they move from machine pitch to live pitching. This is where the competitive play starts for most players as they grow and start to participate in the game. However local rules are put in place to allow the players to still maintain a learning environment, while getting the competitive side flowing.

 

11/12 Player Pitch            Players in this division are moved up from the smaller youth playing field to the more intermediate field. The game is generally played in a competitive manner under Babe Ruth League rules. Players are given an opportunity to play on a field that is slightly larger than the youth fields played on at the younger ages, but smaller than the High School field.

 

13/15 Babe Ruth               Players at this level are playing on the large field that is used by High School, College, and Major League baseball. The players are this level will vary from those with league only to those that are starting their High School careers. This level plays both internal league games as well inter-league play with leagues in Loudoun and Rappahannock Counties as well as a limited number of game with Summit Point Babe Ruth League
