If new to the league they would be placed in the draft for their age group. Parents with a specific question or situation please contact us here.
Equipment & Uniforms
When you register your child the items he/she will receive are 1 Hat and 1 Jersey. What about pants, belts and socks? When teams are formed the coach or team mom will meet with parents the first practice and decide on sock color, belt color, pant color, etc. Once the decision has been made the coach or team mom will get prices from local shops/stores then decide if they want to do a bulk order. Sometimes you can save a little money on the cost of these items doing it this way. On the other hand sometimes you can get a better deal purchasing yourself. Regardless of how it works out you'll have the information needed to make the purchase.
Now to equipment. We want all the kids to be safe on the baseball field so they can enjoy the game. That being said JCYB provides each team with a limited number of batting helmets and catching equipment (if needed). If you have questions about equipment let us know.
Major: The most experienced level of Cal Ripken Baseball, 11 and 12 year old players. Cal Ripken Baseball is played under the Official Baseball Rules, but implements some special rules as necessary for the development and welfare of this young age group. The game is played on 70ft base paths with a pitching distance of 50ft. In order to encourage the league to train more pitchers, there are rules that set the maximum number of innings a pitcher may pitch in a calendar week. Regulation games consist of six innings or four innings if a game is called. Special base running rules are also in effect.
Minor: This league is for 9 and 10 year olds, and features 60ft base paths and a pitching distance of 46 ft. Among teammates of their own age and experience level, players continue building and refining their fundamental skills while they begin to understand game strategy. It is at the minor league level that players first experience, post-season tournament competition, with district, state, and regional levels of play.
Rookie: Designed primarily for 7 and 8 year olds. Dr. Robert Brown, former president of the American League formulated the concept of the Rookie League. Babe Ruth League quickly embraced this and established the rookie league as a division. The program receives high praise from coaches, players, parents, and league officials. The rookie league is an excellent way to continue teaching the fundamentals of the game and building player confidence. In this league the coach pitches to the player.
TBall: A program for 5 - 6 year olds to teach the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. All batters will hit the ball from a batting tee which is adjusted to a height that allows the batter to swing level. All rostered players present for the game bat in order, whether playing defensively or not. Each player plays a minimum of two innings defensively. An adult coach is stationed beyond the infielders in order to provide instruction to all defensive players. The primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball in a supportive team environment.
