T-Ball

The Tee Ball Division is co-ed and is the entry level division for player’s age 4-6. The experience is grounded in fun, fitness, and fundamentals while also being a key to growing a child’s love for the game. In T-Ball, players hit a ball off a batting tee. The primary goals of T-Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork. No live pitching is permitted in this division. There are no umpires, final scores, or standings for this division. A 6 year old Little Leaguer should play two seasons of Tee Ball before being evaluated for the Minor League division of Little League baseball or softball.

Minor League: Baseball Machine Pitch & Softball Player Pitch Divisions

The Minor League division is for players ages 6 – 11. This division should focus more on training and less emphasis on the competitive aspects of the game. Knowing that children coming into Little League are eager to learn and develop skills, Bennett's Creek Little League has formed two groups within the Little League Minor Division before moving to baseball or softball “player pitch”.

Minor League “Machine Pitch” is co-ed for ages 6-8 and an instructional/preparatory division. It is the next step for players after two seasons of Tee Ball, are new to baseball and softball in this age group or players that would benefit from more instruction before moving up to the next level of play.  Machine Pitch is the best fit for players still learning the fundamentals and have little to no experience playing ball. In this division there will be additional instruction given—during games and practice—to help players learn the rules of the game, the different positions, and responsibilities while playing in the field.

Major (Little League Softball)

Minor League “Player Pitch” is the first division where players only pitch for ages 7 – 11. This division has more focus on softball training and less emphasis on the competitive aspects of the game. Fundamental skills are stressed, but games move at a faster pace, game strategies are also taught. The field uses a 60-foot diamond and a 40 foot pitching distance. Players are eligible to earn a spot on the 9/10 Softball  All-Star team.

Combined Junior/Senior League Softball

Bennett's Creek Little League has combined the Junior and Senior divisions into one division. The other little league organizations in our district have done the same.  This combined division is an extension of the Little League to include ages 12  through 16 and provides continuing activity within the framework of the local league. * Waiver is required for a 12 year old to play in the Junior/Senior division.
