2023 Spring Senior League Baseball Division
Little League Ages 13-15
For this Spring, NLL will offer a Senior League Baseball Division and is open to: ALL NEWTON RESIDENTS.
Our Spring program will begin in April and end in June. Additional details about team format, clinics, games, and practices will be published on the Senior League Division web page as the season nears.
The Majors represents the most competitive division of play in NLL. Teams are formed by a draft by the Majors Managers in late January. Once drafted by a team, players remain on that team for the balance of their Little League career. Practices begin in late-March or early-April, weather permitting. Expect 3-4 events per week, including practices and 2-3 games. One Majors team will represent NLL in the Newton City Series Tournament over Memorial Day weekend. An end-of-season playoff tournament is held in mid-June, and an All-Star team is assembled to represent NLL in the Williamsport Tournament with play starting in late June.
This division is made up primarily of players who are league age 11-12. Only 12-year-olds and returning Majors players are guaranteed placement in the Majors. 11-year-old players not drafted into the Majors are automatically placed in AAA. Advanced league age 10 players who played in AAA last Spring are also eligible to be considered for the Majors.
This division is a more advanced league for players who have demonstrated a greater proficiency with baseball fundamentals. There is a continual emphasis on building and developing further baseball skills in a competitive environment. Players pitch, scores and standings are kept, and base stealing (to second and third base only) and bunts are permitted. Little League age 12 players may play in this division by waiver only.
This division is a developmental league and coaches are expected to emphasize having fun while teaching players fundamental baseball skills. Players pitch, scores and standings are kept, bunting is allowed, and limited base stealing (second base only) is permitted. Games will be competitive, but coaches should utilize game situations to teach correct situational play and decision-making. Players will play a variety of positions.
Based on prior feedback, we have established a Single A division that will be similar to the Farm division while incorporating more of the rules of baseball played in the older divisions. We will introduce kid pitch at some point in the season. We think this will be a good bridge for kids that are more advanced than Farm but not quite ready for AA.
Expect 2-3 events per week, including one weekend game and one weekday game.
The Farm division is focused on instruction and developing players and their skills. Registration is open to players league aged 6-8, and typically includes 1st graders and 2nd graders who are new to baseball or require more time to master the basics. (Note: League age for Spring 2023 is defined as how old the player is on or before 8/31/2023. Other second graders may register for Single A.)
Teams of 10-12 players are typically formed by placing friends and classmates together. Expect 2-3 events per week, including one weekend game and one weekday game.
The goal of Rookie division is to provide an introductory, skill-based baseball experience for Kindergarten-aged players. Participants will learn, review and practice the fundamentals of throwing, fielding and batting with an emphais on having FUN.
Teams will be 7-9 players with friends and classmates playing together. Expect 1-2 events per week, including a weeknight practice and a game on Sunday.
Please note: Kindergarten players MUST enter their grade as "0".
As the first level of organized baseball, the emphasis of T-Ball is on FUN. Play is off a tee with a soft safety baseball. Everyone bats and everyone plays the field.
Small teams of 7-9 players are formed by placing friends and classmates together as much as possible. Expect 1-2 events per week, including a weeknight practice and a game on Sunday. Players end their season in mid-June with a special trophy day event.
T-Ball is for players who are league age 4-5. League age for Spring of 2023 is defined as how old the player is on or before 8/31/2023. Generally, all players in Pre-K for the 2022-2023 school year should be registered for T-Ball.
Please note: Pre-K players MUST enter their grade as "-1"; note the minus sign.
