Tee-Ball (4 – 5 year olds)

This is an introductory program for children between the ages of 4 and 5. There is a basic introduction to skills for throwing, hitting and catching with hands. Soft rubber baseballs are used in the place of hard core baseballs. Children are introduced to the concept of the game and there’s a focus on keeping the children active and having fun.  Every player will bat and play in the field.  All players are provided with team shirts, baseball pants and hats. 

There will be two practices and/or games per week.  All activities are at either Davidsonville Elementary School or the Davidsonville Family Recreation Center.  Tee Ball is played on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm starting in late March/early April and running through early June.

 

Coach-Pitch (5 - 6 year olds)

Coach Pitch is the second level of play at South Maryland Little League for young players primarily ages 5 and 6, who have played Tee Ball or who are new to the game of baseball.  The primary focus of Coach Pitch is to teach children, coaches and parents the fundamentals of baseball setting the foundation and preparing them for Machine Pitch.  Every player will bat and play in the field.  All players are provided with team shirts, baseball pants and hats. 

There will be two practices and/or games per week.  All activities are at either Davidsonville Elementary School or the Davidsonville Family Recreation Center.  Coach Pitch is played on Monday and Wednesday evenings, from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm starting in late March/early April and running through early June.

 

Machine League (7 – 8 year olds)

In Machine Pitch, the players are introduced to baseball concepts; this league features the use of a pitching machine rather than a 'coach' or 'player' pitching.  Emphasis is placed on instruction, developing basic skills and a general understanding of the rules of the game.  All players will be provided with team shirt, baseball pants, and hat.  There will be two practices per week until games begin.  Then we shift to one practice and two games per week.  Games will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Minors Baseball (9 – 10 year olds)

Minors introduces the players to their first 'player' pitch game.  Minor League plays by Little League rules with some modifications.  Players will pitch and will continue to learn more about the game including some advanced skills and strategies of the game.  Players continue to refine skills for throwing, catching and hitting with an emphasis on having fun.  All players will be provided with team shirt, baseball pants, hat, and belt. There will be two to three practices per week until games begin, when we shift to one practice and two games per week.  One game each week will be held on either Tuesday or Thursday evening and the other game will be held on Saturday.

Majors Baseball (11 – 12 year olds)

This is a more competitive league, with emphasis on development as well as competitiveness.  Majors is generally governed by 'Major League' rules and incorporates most of the rules and thus true baseball.  All players will be provided with team shirt, baseball pants, hat, and belt.  There will be two to three practices per week until games begin when we shift to one practice and two games per week.  One game each week will be held on either Monday or Wednesday evening and the other game will be held on Saturday.

Juniors Baseball (13 – 14 year olds)

This is competitive league playing regional Little Leagues and will play some complementary travel baseball, with emphasis on development as well as competitiveness.  Juniors is generally governed by 'Major League' rules and incorporates most of the rules and thus true baseball excitement is everywhere.  This league plays on Major League regulation diamonds with 90’ bases.  All players will be provided with team shirt, baseball pants, hat, and belt. There will be two to three practices per week until games begin.

Fees for Juniors baseball are significantly higher than Little League 12 and under due to the travel league registration fees and umpire fees that do not exist in Little League, coupled with the increased number of games.

The season typically runs from early March through mid-June.  Practices and home games are held at Davidsonville Park.
