Divisions of Play

There are 7 divisions at DPLL. The placement of your player is determined by age and skill level. We have evaluations to get an understanding of ability and for the managers and coaches to determine which players they will be drafting. Player Age is determined by their age as of 8/31 for the upcoming baseball season.


The T-Ball Division is for players starting at 4 years old.

The Coast Division is for players who are not ready for kid pitch but need more than T-ball. It is sometimes referred to as "coach pitch." Participants league age 5 and 6 are permitted to advance to Coast after participation in Little League T-Ball for one year. 

The Farm Division is for players who have basic skills but are not quite ready initially for the Minors. This division will have a pitching machine. 

The Minors Division is for players who have all the basic stills needed to play at a competitive level.

The Majors Division is generally for players who are 11-12 years old. There maybe some 10 year olds who are drafted by a manager due to his high skill level, but this will be the exception and not the rule. 

The Juniors Division is for 13-15 year olds and play on 90 foot bases. 

The Challenger Division is for boys and girls, ages 4 and up, with physical, developmental and/or intellectual disabilities.
