Little League ages 10 and 11, and 9s selected in a draft*
* See Little League Age Chart included above to determine Little League age
Players eligible for the 11U Minors division are expected to have achieved a minimum skill level in throwing, catching, fielding, and hitting. These players should be able to: a) Throw a baseball a reasonable distance with accuracy so as to compete in a game; b) Be able to catch a baseball so as to not endanger himself during participation in games and practice; c) Be capable of having a competitive at bat (the fear of being hit prevents a player from staying in the batter’s box) and has a reasonable expectation of putting the ball in play. All players eligible for 11U Minors will be evaluated by managers in a tryout prior to the draft. Players who are a Little League age of 9 who are not drafted for 11U Minors will be placed in the 9U Minors division. Historically, a limited percentage of 9s will make it onto an 11U Minors team.
In the 11U Minors division, players do all the pitching. Each player must play at least three innings in the field, and will be given a chance to pitch. Games are six innings with modified playing rules that limit bunting & stealing. Continuous batting order is used and balls and strikes are counted. Fields have fixed fences, and players receive full uniforms. Most players will stay at this level for two years (some may stay for three).
