Player Ages:

The following guidelines govern LHYL player ages. We will strictly enforce league ages this season, but players may request to play one age level higher.

For the 6U, 8U, and 10U baseball divisions, we may form two divisions: American League and National League. The American League is suitable for first-time or inexperienced players, while the National League is geared towards more experienced players. The creation of separate divisions depends on the availability of enough teams and coaches. The LHYL Board will announce this information after assessments take place.
 

BASEBALL:

All baseball age groups, excluding the 4U division, will play approximately 8 to 10 games and participate in a single-elimination End of Season tournament (weather and field conditions permitting).  Umpires will oversee all baseball games, except for those in the 4U division.

 

Due to the league growth and limited field space Baseball may have to play game on Sundays during the Fall 2024 season.

 

4 year old Baseball (Instructional) 

In instructional baseball, parents/coaches actively participate. This age group emphasizes learning about baseball and having FUN! There will be ONE practice per week and ONE game on Saturdays. There is no End of Season tournament for 4U, and no umpires will be present.

6U Baseball (T-Ball)

T-ball baseball is an introductory level for young children new to organized play. Players use a stationary tee to hit the ball, focusing on fundamental skills like batting, running bases, and fielding. The goal is to create a fun, supportive environment that introduces kids to the basics of baseball, emphasizing teamwork and sportsmanship. T-ball serves as a starting point to build confidence and coordination, setting the stage for a lifelong love of the game.

  • Maximum Age: For players 6 yrs old or younger as of 4/30/25
  • Price: $160

8U Baseball (Coach Pitch)

In coach pitch baseball, players transition from tee-ball to a more dynamic and interactive level of play. At this stage, instead of hitting the ball off a stationary tee, a coach pitches the ball to the batter. This allows players to experience the thrill of hitting a moving ball while still receiving guidance from their coach. The emphasis remains on developing fundamental skills such as hitting, throwing, and catching, but with the added element of learning to connect with a pitched ball. Coach pitch baseball serves as a crucial stepping stone for young players as they continue to build their understanding and enjoyment of the game in a supportive and hands-on learning environment.

The focus actively centers on developing essential pitching and hitting skills, fostering teamwork, and gaining a deeper understanding of the game—all while ensuring a fun and exciting experience. It's a stage where young players actively learn, relish the nuances of baseball, and have a blast in a more interactive setting.

  • Maximum Ages: For players 10 yrs old or younger as of 4/30/25

12U Baseball

The focus intensifies on refining pitching and hitting skills, strategic gameplay, and team dynamics. At this stage, players are immersed in a more competitive and interactive environment, laying the groundwork for a deeper understanding and appreciation of the sport. The emphasis remains on fostering skill development and teamwork while enjoying the game in a more dynamic setting.

At this stage, the athletes pitch to each other, showcasing refined skills in hitting, fielding, and strategic play. The pace and complexity of the game increase, offering a comprehensive experience that mirrors the professional aspects of baseball. 14U baseball marks a stage where players delve deeper into the intricacies of the sport, emphasizing skill mastery, teamwork, and an overall immersive and full-on baseball experience.
 

If there aren't enough 14U teams within LHYL for all internal games, we'll join inter-league games through GYBA. This involves playing against teams from different areas, enhancing competition, and providing valuable exposure to diverse playing styles. It adds an exciting dimension to the season, fostering camaraderie within a broader baseball community.

SOFTBALL

All age groups of softball will play between 8 and 10 games and participate in one weekend tournament (typically Friday through Sunday) with other local leagues.  There will be a maximum of 3 touches per week which includes practices and games.  Each day that the team meets is considered a touch.  There will be an umpire present for all softball games. 

One new change that we will have this year is that there is a possibility for Sunday afternoon practices. The reason we are having to add practices on this day is due to the amazing growth we have seen on the softball side of our league.  If you have any questions about this, please reach out to the Softball Vice President at softballvp@lhyl.org.
