Minor League

  • Ages: 7-12 years old
  • Field Specs: 60-foot base paths; a 35 foot pitching distance.
  • Option to operate with multiple divisions based on age and/or ability. Divisions may include:
    • "Coach Pitch"
    • "Player Pitch"
  • Local option: a player who is league age 6 for the current season and has played a year in Tee Ball is eligible for the Coach Pitch or Machine Pitch Minor divisions. League age 12-year-olds may participate in the Minor Division under certain circumstances.
  • A local league might organize its 7-8-year-olds in the Coach Pitch Division and its 9-10-year-olds in the Player Pitch division; however, by local option, some of the 9-year-olds could "play down" in the coach pitch division, and some of the 8-year-olds could "play up." This is entirely the choice of the local league board of directors. 
  • There is no minimum or maximum composition for rosters, but most leagues have rosters in the 8-12 range. Competitive divisions of Minor League Softball may only use nine players on defense. 
  • Season culminates with the 9-10 and 10-11 Tournament which advances to the State level or Regional Invitational. Tournament Team (or All-Stars) may be selected from age appropriate and eligible Minor or Little League players
