The focus on this age is for the players to begin to understand the basics of baseball and enjoy it. Safety is the primary goal. Depending on the number of registered players, the players will be split into two divisions with the younger division having 4 - 5 1/2 year olds and an older division with those older than 5 1/2. There is some discretion by the commissioner of placement based on skill and experience of the player.
