Junior Minors- There are two divisions separated by age/experience. There are two age groups 6-7 and 7-8. Depending on how your child assesses and what their level of experience is, they may be placed into either group. This division will have either coach pitching or machine pitching. There are six pitches with strikeouts. Outs are recorded with a 5 run limit per inning. No leading off or stealing bases, one base limit per overthrow. Real baseballs are used in junior minors. There is one umpire per game. Records are kept and there are playoffs at the end of the regular season. The regular season will be 12 games. During the Fall season there may only be one Junior Minors division.
Minors- This age group is anywhere from 9-11 years old and begins the players pitching themselves. This pitching is a distance of 46 feet. This season is 12 games. Playoffs at the end of the season.
Little League Baseball - This is an age group anywhere from 10-12 years old. This division would also pitch from a 46 foot distance.
Intermediate- This is for the 11-13 age group. Pitching is from 50 feet and the bases are 70 feet apart. There is leading off and stealing. There will be no Intermediate Divsion in the Fall of 2018
There is some overlap in the age groups. This will allow for your player to be put into the division that best suites their ability, comfort level. Other than the T Ball divisions, games could be scheduled any day of the week except Sunday.
The leauge will provide a uniform including a jersey, hat and belt. Pants are required, and the color (white or grey) is determined by the coach after teams are assigned. Helmets, catching equipment for junior minors and up and baseball's for team practice and games are provided.

5) WHAT ARE ASSESMENTS / WHO HAS TO ATTEND

An email will be sent once registration is closed to inform you of what
time your child's assesments will be. Assessments will start with the older players and run through the young groups. There are no assessments for T-Ball players.
6) CAN MY CHILD BE ON THE SAME TEAM AS A SIBLING / FRIEND
While we make every effort to accommodate special requests to aid in convenience , car pooling etc. no guarantees can be made. T-BALL is much easier to group players as there are no drafts in this division.
7) WHAT IF I WANT TO MANAGE, COACH, BE TEAM MOM ETC.
Great! As a non for profit, volunteer organization we depend on people like you to help make our league great. There is a form on our website PTCLL.com that includes a background check. We strongly recommend that if you think you have even the smallest chance to help with your players team that you fill out the form and complete the background check. That way you can be allowed on the field and in the dugout. Without this process completed you will NOT be allowed on the playing field or in the dugout. This is a Little League national requirement.
8) WHEN DOES THE FALL 2018 SEASON START
We plan on starting regular season games after Labor Day. The season will be over in time to hold playoffs at the end for all divisions except T-Ball and have playoffs completed before Thanksgiving break.
9) WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT RAINS, IS MY GAME / PRACTICED CANCELLED
We have 14 different fields that we have use of at PTCLL. When it rains some fields are in better shape than others, and are playable while others are not. We will make blanket closures and updates when warranted regarding field
of conditions via our website, emails, and through the Team Wall App. However, most of the time it is up to the coaches if the game will be played. Sometimes a team has someone who is able to tend to a field early in the day after a rain and it will be playable, so that game would be played, when others may be cancelled. Emails from the coach will be the final determination if a game will be cancelled.
10) WHAT TIME WILL MY GAMES BE
Generally the times will vary through the season. Weekday games will usually not start before 5:30pm. Saturday games normally don't start before 10:00am.
