Baseball

Tee-Ball Division

  • Open to girls and boys
  • Ages 4-6 years old

Tee Ball Division is for boys and girls 4-6 years old who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding.

In Tee Ball, players hit a ball off a batting tee and no live pitching is permitted in this division.  Rules of the game are flexible in order to maximize the teaching of skills, teamwork, fundamentals and the general rules of baseball.  Woodlawn Little League uses a 50-foot field for t-ball division.

Tee Ball teams have rosters of around 9 players.  All players are listed on the batting line-up and all players will rotate field play each game in a variety of positions in order to begin to learn position specific skills.

AA Division

  • Open to girls and boys
  • Ages 6-9 years old

AA Division program is also known as “coach-pitch” and is focused on deepening beginning fundamentals and skills for ballplayers who are either moving up from tee ball or just starting to play the game.

A player who is league-age 6 (by April 30) for the current season is eligible to play in the AA Division.  Woodlawn does permit players aged 6 to play up if they have tee ball experience and also permits players age 9 to “play-down” to gain skills and fundamentals if they are just starting to learn the game.  Pitching is done by a coach or manager and is not “pitched” in the traditional sense from a mound, but usually from a closer distance with less force to allow players to gain skill and confidence hitting a pitched ball.  Play is on a 50-foot field.

Rosters are usually comprised of around 12-15 players.  All players are listed on the batting line-up and all players will rotate field play each game in a variety of positions in order to continue to deepen position-specific skills.

AAA Division

  • Open to girls and boys
  • Ages 9-11 years old

AAA Division, also known as "kid-pitch” is focused on building a player’s skills and beginning to identify specific position skills and training.  The AAA Division at Woodlawn is for ages 9-11.

A player who is league-age 9 (by April 30) for the current season is eligible to play in the AAA Division.  Woodlawn does permit players aged 8 to play up if they have AA Division experience.  Pitching is done by players on the team and attention is provided to teaching pitchers the fundamentals and mechanics of the position, while ensuring the safety and health of the players. 

Rosters usually have 12-15 players on a team and players are more consistently played in specific positions based on the skills they can demonstrate to match those needed for each position.  The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet.

Majors Division
