Objectives & Expected Level Of Play By Division

Girls 12" Softball (7-15yr)

As we go into our 2nd year of Girls 12” Softball, we have added a day. The expectation is that Friday will be practice and Saturday will be practice and/or a game.

Our younger girls used wiffle & “soft” softballs. We may also include the use of 11” softballs this year for those girls 10 & under.

Most of our 2013 players were “first timers”, so we encourage ALL skill levels. If you are under the age of 7, we encourage you to start out with our Jr. Teeball or Teeball divisions where you will learn baseball rules while using the smaller ball.

Jr. Tee Ball (4 years old)

Great introduction to baseball.

**VERY PARENT INTERACTIVE! Although participation is not mandatory, ALL

parents are strongly encouraged to participate.

The children are grouped and divided to work on basic baseball skills. Although they are not divided into formal “teams”, they are put into game-like situations to start learning the fundamentals of baseball.

This division is open to boys and girls of all skill levels.

The baseballs are “soft”

Tee Ball (5-6yr)

This is the children’s introduction to team baseball. Each child will be placed on a team that has a designated head coach. Parent participation remains encouraged, but more responsibility is focused on the head coach and his/her assistants.

Players at this age will hit off of a tee. The first half of the season is dedicated primarily to learning, but the 2nd half does incorporate a stronger focus on games. There is a playoff in this division to start teaching the competitive aspect of baseball.

This division is open to boys and girls of all skill levels.

The baseballs are “soft”.

Rookie (7-8yr)

This is the children’s introduction to PITCHED baseball. Just like in tee ball, each child will be placed on a team that has a designated head coach, but instead of hitting off of a tee, they will hit off of live pitching. There is a mix of “coach pitch” and “player pitch”.

This division is open to boys and girls of all skill levels.

The baseballs are real baseballs.

Babe Ruth (13+)

COMPETITIVE LEVEL TRAVEL TEAM...this division is dedicated to players who want to play competitive baseball and represent the Hyde Park Kenwood Legends.

This division plays full baseball rules.

Minor (9-10yr)

At this level, the game gets a bit more serious. It is fully player pitched...some of the baseball rules such as stealing are added.

While this division remains open to boys and girls of all skill levels, some knowledge of the game is beneficial.

Major (11-12yr)

We have integrated most “full” baseball rules in this division. At this level, a knowledge of the game and ability to catch & throw and an intermediate level is beneficial and will help the child have a much more enjoyable experience.
