What Baseball Ages play Minors?​

  • Ages 8-10


How do I determine my child's Baseball Age?
  • The league age determination date is the age a player has attained as of a specific date (August 31st of the current year), for the purpose of placing the player in a particular Division.  As of 2021 the date in Divisions of Little League Baseball is as follows:



What is Minors?

  • Minors is still a development Division for our young players, and the focus remains on teaching the fundamentals of batting, throwing, fielding and the introduction of pitching.  The goal is for players to learn how to pitch in game situations and for them to continue to develop their hitting, throwing and fielding skills in a fun and safe environment.
  • At the Minors Division level, pitching to and by the players is introduced to become part of the game.  As many players as possible will be encouraged to pitch.  Most basic Little League Rules will apply with modification "House Rules" to enhance player development which we have found appropriate for better play at this level.  This is still a developmental division and a strong emphasis remains on teaching basic skills in a true Little League Baseball environment.  Teams in this Division field 9 players each inning and ALL players are in the batting line-up.  All players can expect equal playing time.  This is the first level at which we have umpires to call balls and strikes, as well as outs.  Umpires in this Division will allow a fairly liberal strike zone to encourage hitting.
  • Players will be placed on teams based and balanced based on previous playing experience and eval scores if they evaluated. There will be no tiered divisions.


What is the cost of Minors?

  • The cost is $200.


How long is the Season and how often do they play?

What equipment is included in the registration fees?  What equipment do the parents/guardians need to provide?

  • Registration Fees cover the cost of the field permits and umpires. Fish Creek Little League will supply each team a set of jerseys, catcher gear and balls.  A few Team Bats will also be provided by the League; however, it is preferable if each player has their own bat.
  • Each player MUST have their own batting helmet (for hygiene purposes). There are spares provided which must be sanitized after use.
