Explanation of Divisions:

ECNLL offers some combination of the following divisions based on the number of registered players at each level. ECNLL reserves the right to adjust the divisions offered and division ages as appropriate based on the number of players registered. Ages are determined using Little League International's "League Age" and not actual age. You can determine your child's 2019 League Age by CLICK HERE

• Coaches may be on the field on defense

Tee Ball

Ages 4-6 Players who are league age 4-6 and have not played organized baseball should start with Tee Ball. This is the entry level into organized baseball for most children. It is totally instructional and done in an encouraging and nurturing setting. Players will be taught the basics of the game: how to hit, run the bases, catch, throw and work as a team. Every child bats and plays the field every inning. Teams switch after the full lineup hits. Players hit and run to first base only and do not leave the base even if an out is made. The defense works to try to make an 'out'. Game time can be up to 90 minutes, no more than three innings depending on the number of kids present.

ROOKIES: Coach (First Half)\Machine Pitch (Second Half)

Ages 6-8. Players who are league age 5 or 6 that have participated for one regular season in the Tee Ball Division are eligible. A step up from Tee Ball, this division's season is divided in half; coach pitch for the first half and machine pitch the second half. players will be given up to five pitches from a short distance by their coach and if unsuccessful will hit off the tee or players will get seven pitches from the pitching machine. Three swinging strikes or seven pitches without a hit will result in an out. Teams switch sides after three outs or five runs have scored. Batters and runners may advance more than one base on hits to the outfield, but there is no advancing on overthrows or stealing. The catcher position is introduced at this level and the infield is limited to the standard infield positions. Teams in this division will field a 10th player. Games are generally 90 minutes.

For all levels CAPS and above:

All players league age 7 and above must participate in try outs held in January 2019 (date & Location TBD), after which they will be drafted onto the appropriate division for their age and skill level. Teams will keep score and standings will be kept in these divisions.  Minor A and Majors only:  ECNLL holds tournament of champions at these two levels with the winners advancing to District 41 Tournament of Champions are eligible for All-Stars post season.

Players may steal 2nd or 3rd base once the pitch has crossed the plate and players may advance to 2nd and 3rd base on a passed ball or overthrow but 3rd base is locked--no advancing home via steal, passed ball or overthrow on a steal.
