Baseball- Minors

Minors Baseball

This Minors division of Little League promotes a higher level of competition than Farm and emphasizes more of the standard rules of Little League baseball. The focus in Minors remains on education, development and teamwork while encouraging a deeper understanding of the game and advancing skill development in order to prepare players for successful participation at the Majors level. Players pitch from the full 46-foot pitching distance for the first time and gain a better understanding of offensive and defensive strategies.
