T-Ball
T-Ball is a non-competitive instructional baseball program for 5-6 year olds developing hitting, throwing, base-running skills and general game play while emphasizing fun and safety. Season starts in Mid to Late-April and ends in Mid-June. T-Ball will meet one time per week on Saturday mornings from 8:30am to 9:30am at Shaker Lane School. If you have any questions regarding this league, please contact the T-ball League Coordinator, Thomas Kinney by email: .
Any child who has a birth date that falls between 5/1/2008 and 4/30/2009 and whose parents believe is ready for Rookie Ball will be allowed to attend Rookie Ball evaluations if they request to do so through the T-Ball Coordinator. Those players would then be evaluated along with the rest of the children eligible for Rookie Ball on their fielding, throwing and hitting. A combination of the evaluation of the child and the number of players registered at the Rookie Ball Level will determine whether or not a child will remain in T-Ball or be allowed to move up to Rookie Ball. Please see below for more details on Rookie Ball.
 
Rookie Baseball
Rookie Ball is a structured in-town league for 7-8 year olds that stresses baseball skills development and introduces team game play. A full schedule of six-inning games in which a pitching machine is used for some innings and players begin to pitch as the season progresses, will be played. Generally there are 1-2 games per week and one practice over the weekend. Team placement is based upon player experience and skill level with the objective to balance all teams as evenly as possible. Season starts in late April and ends in Mid-June. If you have any questions regarding this league, please contact the Rookie League Coordinator, Bill Branco by email: .
Any child who has a birth date that falls between 5/1/2006 and 4/30/2007 and whose parents believe is ready for Minors will be allowed to attend Minors evaluations if they request to do so through the Rookie Ball Coordinator. Those players would then be evaluated along with the rest of the children eligible for the Minors on their fielding, throwing and hitting. A combination of the evaluation of the child and the number of players registered at the Minors Level will determine whether or not a child will remain in Rookie Ball or be allowed to move up to Minors. Please see below for more details on the Minors.
 
MAC League - Minors and Majors Baseball
MAC League: Leagues for ages 9-12. The Littleton Youth Baseball program is designed to teach and develop the fundamental baseball skills while also gradually introducing game strategy and teamwork as players advance through the system. As players progress from Minors through Majors 60 and into Majors 70, the level of competition will increase from year to year while allowing for highly skilled players to advance at a more rapid rate. Starting in the Minors, all games will be umpired, fully pitched by the players, and played against other towns in the region. It is our goal to make this a fun experience for all of the kids regardless of age or level. As such, through the evaluation process before and after the season, we will strive to field evenly balanced teams across and within each league. For more details on the leagues and some general guidelines on placement and competition level, please see below. If you have any questions regarding this league, please contact the MAC League Coordinator, Shawn Abetz by email: .
 
Minors: Recommended for ages 9 and 10, 46 foot pitcher’s mound, 60 foot bases. This is intermediate baseball where the emphasis is on developing fundamental baseball skills and the beginning of game strategy and teamwork. All six innings are kid pitched, no coaches or machine pitching. While this league is still recreational, it is more competitive than Rookie given that games are now against other towns. Depending on registration numbers some advanced 8 year olds that have shown the necessary skills during evaluations may be invited to play up at this level from Rookie. If you have any questions regarding this league, please contact the Minors League Coordinator, Dan Shufrin by email: .

Majors 60: Recommended for ages 11 and 12, 46 foot pitcher’s mound, 60 foot bases. This league is competitive but continues to work on and increase the fundamentals of baseball. In addition, an emphasis on game strategy and teamwork will become more deliberate and pronounced. Depending on registration numbers some advanced 10 year olds that have shown the necessary skills during evaluations may be invited to play up at this level from Minors. If you have any questions regarding this league, please contact the Majors 60 League Coordinator, Pete Cote by email: .

Majors 70: Reserved for advanced 11 and 12 year olds, 50 foot pitcher’s mound, 70 foot bases. Leading, stealing, and all aspects of games as it is played at the High School level. Teams will be selected based upon those players who demonstrate the ability to perform, as well as be coached at this level. Note that 12-year-olds will not automatically be placed on a Majors 70 roster; participation in this league will be determined by spring evaluations and past coach input. If you have any questions regarding this league, please contact the Majors 70 League Coordinator, Bill Sager by email: .
Babe Ruth Baseball
A structured traveling league for 13-15 year olds with a full schedule of seven-inning umpired games on regulation-sized diamonds from mid-April to mid-June. Games will be scheduled so that they do not conflict with middle school or high school baseball teams.

In an effort to be fair to all players who would like a chance to play for a school baseball league, we have set a waitlist for all registering applicants. Having the waitlist will allow LYBS to assess how many players are possibly interested in playing for LYBS in the spring without charging you at this time. If you are interested in playing in the spring for LYBS please sign up as early as possible. You will not be charged until we get a final count later in the year and you will be contacted and asked to confirm if your child wants to play. If you know for sure that your child will be playing in the spring regardless of making a school team please send an email to the Coordinator letting him know your child intends to play regardless of whether or not your he or she makes a school team.

If you have any questions regarding this league, please contact the Baseball Babe Ruth Coordinator, Ed McCarthy, by email: conmccarthy@yahoo.com.
Rookie Softball

Note: If your child is in the Transitional Grade please enter 1st Grade in the registration information for your child.
If you have any questions regarding this league, please contact Jen Regan by email:  jennifer.regan@verizon.net.
