HOUSE LEAGUE DIVISIONS

LL Division (Ages 11-12)

(11-years-old by May 1)pittsburgh bronco baseball youth kid         

The 14thWard “LL” (Little League) division is where kids are thrilled to be making the transition to a game almost identical to adult, Major League Baseball!  Now that the kids have had the opportunity to master the basic skills of baseball, it is time to introduce more advanced skills: taking leads, pitching from the stretch, balks and passed balls, and the Infield Fly rule. The goal in this division is to introduce these new aspects of the game and to continue to refine the basic skills introduced in previous years.  Coaches will continue to teach the fundamentals of baseball and team play.  Pitching and hitting will be emphasized along with the introduction to the new rules (leading and balking).  While winning is not the primary emphasis, it is a component of the game and coaches are going to compete to win games while prioritizing positive values, like sportsmanship.  Players will have an opportunity to play multiple positions during the season as ALL players will have to rotate between the infield and the outfield.  Specific position will be determined by the coaches according to ability level and safety of the athlete.

The season will begin with a series of instructional practices, before moving into a 12 game regular season schedule (weather dependent).  All teams participate in the Playoffs following the regular season.  Children will be coached on fundamental skills such as base running, fielding, throwing, pitching, and positional play.  All players must play a minimum of 2 innings in the infield.  No player may pitch more than 2 innings during any game.

 

Coaches/Volunteers:

We take as much help as we can get!  No previous experience is needed to help coach.  Even though one of the goals of this league is to raise the competitive level, parental involvement is highly encouraged and results in a better experience for the kids.  Parents without any prior coaching experience, but with a fundamental knowledge of baseball are encouraged to volunteer for managerial and coaching positions.
