Player Division Levels for Softball and Baseball are assigned by the league.
Softball is not affiliated with USA baseball and/or Babe Ruth Baseball and uses a January 1 cut-off date. Players must be 5 years of age by January 1, 2013 to participate.
Softball Minor B: 2007 - 2008
Softball Minor A : 2005 - 2006
Softball Majors: 2003 - 2004
Softball Juniors: 2001 - 2002
Softball Seniors: 1995 - 2000
Lou Gehrig will follow the calendar year date of April 30 consistent to divisional levels. This means that the April 30 date will now determine the age appropriate level for the 2013 season.
The player's age level will be determined by their age as of April 30, 2013. For example, a player turning 9 years old on May 1, 2013 will be considered an eight year old.
*Our practice has been to have players play only one year of tee-ball at LGYBS and then move on to 1A (pitching machine/some coach pitch). We don't establish playing levels until the latter part of the registration season when we confirm all level assignments based on registration numbers at each level.
Instructional: First time players ages 5 & 6: Coach Pitch/Tee-Ball
1A: Age 6/7; Machine Pitch / some coach pitch*
2A: Age 8; Machine Pitch with umpires/strikeouts
3A: Age 9; First Year Player Pitch
Major C: Age 10 / 11
Major B: Age 11/12; some higher skilled 10 year olds
Major A: 11/12 year olds (70 ft diamond)
