Emerson Little League Recreational Programs

Our recreational baseball program focuses on fun and learning of the game, and is offered to all Emerson children in Pre-K thru 8th grade. The program runs from the beginning of April until mid-June. Kids are assigned to each division based on their age (Little League Age Calculator). All days listed below are subject to change based on field availability and weather – makeup practices and games will be scheduled if possible.

Tee Ball Division (4-5 year olds)
Introduction to baseball for these children consists of clinic type practices and scrimmage games to introduce them to the game of baseball. The goal of the clinic is to expose our youngest players to the fundamentals of baseball in a fun and age-appropriate way. Registration is open to those entering Kindergarten in the fall. Sessions are once a week for approximately 1-1.5 hours (typically on Sundays).

Coach Pitch Division (6-7 year olds)
This program looks to build upon the fundamentals learned in Tee Ball. Early in the season we will begin by re-introducing the fundamentals of the game and learning about proper gameplay. As the children advance in hitting off of tees, coach pitching is introduced to continue developing skills. Scrimmages are started after the first few sessions with the focus on development and fun -- we do not keep score, kids rotate positions in the field, and everyone gets a turn to bat in each inning. Sessions are twice a week for approximately 1-1.5 hours (typically one weeknight and one Saturday session).

Minors Division (8-9 year olds)
The minors division is a kid pitch format on 46’x60’ fields. Typical gameplay rules are in place (scorekeeping, field positions, etc) with some modifications to ensure smooth gameplay. Games are played against other Emerson teams as well as teams from surrounding towns. Scheduling typically consists of 2 evenings per week as well as Saturdays.

Majors Division (10-12 year olds)
The majors division is a kid pitch format on 46’x60’ fields. Typical gameplay rules are in place (scorekeeping, field positions, etc). Games are played against other Emerson teams as well as teams from surrounding towns. Scheduling typically consists of 2 evenings per week as well as Saturdays.

Senior Division (13-14 year olds)
Played on a Major League sized field (60x90).  The number of in-town teams depends on enrollment.  However, Emerson plays in a multi-town league and each team will play games against rec teams from surrounding towns. Scheduling typically consists of 2-3 practices/games per week, depending on scheduling availability of other towns.
