Age Divisions for Spring 2022
At all levels, the emphasis is on learning and coaching. Thomas Youth League and our partner leagues (Bethel Church League, Union-Finley Athletic Association, and St. Louise Baseball) work to foster players' growth and help them learn to appreciate the game of baseball.

Tee Ball (players use tee, no outs, no score): Age 4 or 5 (turns 6 on or after May 1, 2022). Player must turn 4 on or before April 30, 2022.
Shetland (coaches pitch, no strikeouts, players may use tee, no score): Age 5 or 6 (turns 7 on or after May 1, 2022).
Pinto (coaches pitch, strikeouts, score is kept): Age 7 or 8 (turns 9 on or after May 1, 2022).
Mustang (players pitch, score is kept): Age 9 or 10 (turns 11 on or after May 1, 2022).

Tee Ball (ages 4 and 5) and Shetland (ages 5 and 6) are entirely noncompetitive, and no score is kept at either level. Tee Ball players use a tee every at-bat. Shetland players attempt to hit a pitched ball, and can use a tee if they are unable to do so (they cannot strike out). The idea of enforcing outs (removing runners who are out from the bases) is introduced in Shetland.

Tee Ball players should expect two events a week (one weeknight and one Saturday morning). Participants at all other levels should expect two or three events (games and practices) per week. No games will be scheduled for Sundays, but all other days are possibilities.

Tee Ball and Shetland players may request one weeknight (Monday through Thursday) to be blocked out from their schedules. To the best of our ability, teams will be grouped to accommodate these requests.

We appreciate your flexibility in matters of scheduling.

Parents of players who are five years old can determine whether their child is better suited for Tee Ball or Shetland. As a guideline, we suggest that if a five-year-old child has never played baseball, he or she should be in Tee Ball. If they played Tee Ball previously, they are probably ready to be in Shetland. We are happy to discuss this with parents.

Please contact the league ([email protected]) if you have questions. If you have older players (ages 11+), Thomas Youth League is happy to discuss other local options with you.
