This program is for players in 8th and 9th grade. This translates to players with birth dates from 9/16/2005 to 9/15/2007, but players participating in high school baseball should pair that the Seniors Division.
Teams formed by a draft following evaluations. Full baseball rules on smaller-than-regulation fields (54-foot mound, 80-foot bases).
Games are seven innings, with teams playing typically three times per week, and practice time on the weekend once games start. April is set aside for practices. Games run May to mid-July, with an All-Star game and a postseason tournament capping the season.
Fields used: Crow Creek #5 and Castro Field at Kiwanis Park/Paul Norton School. Some games also at out-of-town destinations such as Eldridge, Long Grove and Donahue, versus teams from the North Scott and Wapsi Little Leagues. Bettendorf fields have lights, so night games are normal.
Note: If pairing BPV with high school baseball, play in Seniors on a full-sized diamond against older competition. Those interested in coaching are encouraged to contact the division director, Tyler Driever at email@example.com.
