Reedville Baseball offers opportunities for children from 4-14 to play baseball. It is the goal of Reedville Baseball to provide opportunities for all players at any skill level to play baseball. All seasons generally begin in April, with recreational baseball (T-Ball and Rookie League) concluding at or near the end of the school year and competitive baseball (JBO and City League) concluding anywhere from June 15th to July 30th.

Tee-Ball is where it all begins! Focused on offering a fun and non-competitive environment, Reedville Pee-Wee focuses on teaching baseball at its most elementary level. Teams usually consist of 11-13 players with coaches pitching a set number of pitches to each player and then if a hit ball does not result, allowing players to hit from the tee. Outs are recorded, but no scores are kept and players focus on learning to hit, catch and throw the ball. Safe-T balls are used (softer baseballs) and most teams practice twice per week and play a total of 10-12 games per season. The season generally concludes with the end of the school year. We recommend players 4-6 who have NEVER played baseball play in this league first.
The Rookie League removes the Tee and uses regular hard baseballs. Additionally, children pitch to each batter and a coach throws pitches to batters as well. Teams typically include 11-13 players per team. The Rookie League continues to focus on elementary level baseball concepts (throwing, hitting and catching) and does not keep score during the regular season. However, the season ends with a championship tournament where scores are kept. The season generally concludes with the end of the school year. 6-7 year olds moving up from Pee-Wee make up most of the league with 7-8 year olds who have NEVER played baseball beginning here.
We do not accept 3rd graders or above to play at Recreational Baseball. Any 3rd grader or above should register for Competitive Baseball.

At Reedville Baseball, once players reach the Minor League of baseball, all players begin to participate in competitive baseball and are required to attend evaluations. Evaluations determine the level of baseball each player will play at for the season. JBO includes three skill levels for Minors - National, American, and Federal. Players are placed in a level based on their performance during the evaluation process.
The Minor League is a player's first foray into competitive baseball. Depending on the level your child plays at for the season, baseball will be taught by coaches based on their skill level. Players exhibiting high level skills at tryouts focus on more advanced skills while first time players or players working on fundamental knowledge of the game will work on improving basic skills.
All teams and games are competitive at this level of baseball and compete against teams of like size, age and skill. Games are played on 60 foot bases and pitching is from 45 feet. Teams playing in JBO generally end their regular season the first week of July and conclude post season play the third week of July.
Like Minor League, all Junior League teams are competitive and all prospective players are required to participate in evaluations. Evaluations determine the level of baseball each player will play at for the season. JBO includes three skill levels for Juniors - National, American, and Federal. Players are placed in a level based on their performance during the evaluation process.
Junior Baseball focuses on teaching advanced baseball skills at every level. 90% of players playing Junior Baseball have played baseball at some level prior to reaching Juniors. While first time players are always welcome, the learning curve can be steep as many players have been playing baseball for 2-6 years by this age. JBO Teams generally compete in regular season until the first week of July.
The Senior League is comprised of players 13-14 years old, is competitive and all prospective players are required to participate in evaluations. Evaluations determine the level of baseball each player will play at for the season. JBO includes three skill levels for Seniors - National, American, and Federal. Players are placed in a level based on their performance during the evaluation process.
Senior Level Baseball exclusively teaches advanced skills at all levels. Usually, 90-95% of players in the Senior League have played baseball at some level prior to playing in Seniors. As always, first time players are welcome, however the learning curve can be very steep depending on a player's athletic abilities.
