Cal Ripken Baseball Division – Ages 4-12
Keeping baseball FUN-especially in the early stages of youth baseball-is a primary concern of Babe Ruth League’s Cal Ripken Division, which is comprised of the following divisions:
Major/70: Featuring a 50′ pitching distance and 70′ base paths, this new division is offered as an option to current league format, and still includes a tournament trail from District competition through World Series.
Major/60: This division is recommended for ballplayers ages 11-12. Features a 46′ pitching distance and 60′ base paths.
Minor: Recommended for ballplayers ages 9-10. Players build and refine their fundamental skills while beginning to understand game strategy and teamwork. In most regions, participants first experience post-season tournament competition in this level.
AAA Rookie: Designed primarily for ballplayers ages 7-8, this division makes use of a pitching machine to allow for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field.
T-Ball: Ballplayers ages 5-6 learn hitting and fielding fundamentals in a supportive team environment. Young athletes hit the ball from a batting tee which is height-adjusted for a level swing, batting in order through the line-up for the entire game.
