Minor Baseball AAA
Jan 01 - Mar 12
From Jan 02, 2016 to Mar 13, 2016
The Minor AAA division is an upper tier instructional division with players ages ranging from 8 to 10 years of age.
Scores and standings are kept.
The number of teams in the minor AAA fluctuates from year to year, depending on the number of new players who sign up, number of players moving up from the Minor AA level and returning Minor AAA players. Depending on the number of teams, the AAA division may be divided into two divisions.
During the course of the season each player should have the opportunity to play many positions in the field. The offensive team will use the continuous batting order for all players. The defensive team will field 10 players (pitcher, catcher, 4 infielders and 4 outfielders).
Players pitch in this division, with Little League pitching rules including pitch count regulations.
This division is differentiated from Majors, with no dropped third strike rule, for example. Stealing rules may be phased in as the season progresses.
This division usually starts at the end of April and runs through the end of June. The division plays approximately 16 games (weather permitting). Games are played on Tuesday nights and Friday nights. Teams could play from 1- 3 games per week due to bye or makeup schedule demands.
There are All Star teams that players can be selected to (9u and 10u). These tournaments are in July.
