CRLL Local Rules

Division Descriptions

Local Rules are re-evaluated on an annual basis. Detailed rules for Baseball and Softball are posted in the side bar as soon as they have been approved by the CRLL Board of Directors.

Below is a brief description of the CRLL Divisions.

 

T-BALL (Baseball and Softball)

  • Typical age range: 4-5 years
  • Children that are "league age" 4 and 5 years old will be assigned to a T-ball team. If your child is 6 years old, and did not previously play T-ball, this may be a more appropriate level of play.  Contact the Baseball Player Agent or Softball Player Agent for additional information.
