Who should play B league?  Any girl with birth years of 2007 and 2008 and older girls that are small and don’t have the skills for A league.  

 

What size of ball does B league use?  This year B league is going to move the ball size down from a 12in hard ball to an 11in hard ball to make it easier for the 10yr olds to throw.  We feel that any 10u travel girls would do very well in this league as would many of the first year 12u girls. If your daughter is a starting pitcher on 12u at 11yrs old, she may get a lot more benefit facing the A batters, use a 12in ball, and even deal with pitching from 43ft.

 

Where are the games?  The games are all played at Oak Park Elementary on Garfield next to the Civic Center.

 

What does the skill level look like?  B is going to have most girls pitching with a lob, but there should be a few 10u pitchers able to throw 40mph and more strikes.  This is still a relatively beginners league, so the skill level goes from pretty good to first year players and all should find success.

 

Are there special Rules?  There are special rules. First, there is no stealing home or extra bases on steals when there is a past ball or over throws.  Second, we only allow stealing first on a dropped or bounced third strike in the first 3 innings. There is a maximum of 7 runs per inning, no stealing when the lead is above 7, and all girls must play infield 2 innings in a full game.
