Changes To Divisions for 2021 Season







The TVLL Board of Directors has elected to revamp our divisions as a way to improve development and help make the game more fun for players and families.  Here are the divisions that will be in place for the 2021 season:

Tee-Ball

The Tee Ball Division is required for all league age five (5) year old players and six (6) year old players participating in a Little League Program for the first time. Teams are organized by league age, neighborhood and school attendance when possible.

Tee Ball is an introductory division focused on instruction where players hit off a tee rather than a pitched ball. Soft, Reduced Injury Factor (RIF) balls are used for safety. No scores are kept, every offensive player bats each inning regardless of outs and no player sits on defense. Players are taught the basic fundamentals of baseball including throwing, catching, batting, defensive ready position and base running.

Farm

The Farm Division consists of league age six (6), seven (7), eight (8) and nine (9) year old players.  Teams are organized by league age, neighborhood, and school attendance when possible.

This is an instructional division where players hit "live" Reduced Injury Factor (RIF) balls pitched by their own coach from a short distance with a tee being used to assist players who struggle to hit a live pitch. No scores are kept and every offensive player bats each inning regardless of outs. On defense each team will have ten (10) defensive positions. In addition to the change in batting format the fundamentals of baseball are reinforced and players are introduced to additional aspects of the game.

Minor B

The Minor B Division is a "draft" division consisting of league age eight (8), nine (9) and ten (10) year old players.  All players are required to go through evaluations and teams are formed through a manager draft process supervised by the Division Coordinator, Player Agent and League President.  Selection in this division is NOT guaranteed.  Only players who are drafted will play in this division.

Minor A

The Minor A Division is a "draft" level division consisting of league age nine (9), ten (10) and eleven (11) year old players.  All players are required to go through evaluations and teams are formed through a manager draft process supervised by the Division Coordinator, Player Agent and League President.  Selection in this division is NOT guaranteed.  Only players who are drafted will play in this division.

Players pitch and all players in the line‐up bat. The standard nine baseball defensive positions are used and scores and standings are kept. Trained volunteer umpires enforce the Rules and Regulations of Little League Baseball. Players are taught advanced fundamentals of baseball such that they are exposed to pitching techniques, playing positions, defensive pre‐pitch preparedness, live batting and aggressive base running.

A post‐season tournament will determine the champion for the division. The winning team represents the League in the District 57 Tournament of Champions (TOC).

Majors

The Majors Division is "draft" level and represents true competitive play. It is generally oriented for experienced players who are league age eleven (11) and twelve (12) years old.  League age ten (10) players are eligible.   All players are required to go through evaluations and teams are formed through a manager draft process supervised by the Division Coordinator, Player Agent and League President.  Placement in this division is NOT guaranteed.  Only players who are drafted will play in this division.


Players pitch and all players in the line‐up bat. The standard nine baseball defensive positions are used and scores and standings are kept. This level focuses on more advanced skill development. Players are exposed to faster pitching speeds, harder hit balls and the overall pace of the game is much faster. Trained volunteer umpires enforce the Rules and Regulations of Little League Baseball.

A post‐season tournament will determine the champion for the division. The winning team represents the League in the District 57 Tournament of Champions (TOC).
