The Spring League baseball season begins with a March evaluation date. Teams form and practices start mid-March and games begin at the end of March. Spring Division Tournaments typically take place in late May/early June. The Spring League is designed to offer a fun and competitive league play. The Spring League includes Tee Ball, Coach Pitch, Machine Pitch, Minors, Majors, Juniors/Seniors, and Softball.
Highly skilled 8-12 year old players are selected from each Division to represent Dilworth in tournaments during June and July. Dilworth All-Star teams play in local tournaments, often advancing to regional and national competitions.
The Fall League baseball season begins with practices in mid-September. Games begin at the end of September and continue through the end of October. The Fall League is designed to offer a fun and competitive league play. The Fall League includes Tee Ball, Machine Pitch, Minors, Majors, Juniors/Seniors, and Softball.
This division is for beginners and second year players who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. All 4s and 5s must play at this level to continue to build on basic skills and understanding of baseball.
COACH PITCH BASEBALL
Coach Pitch is for players with previous Tee Ball experience and is also appropriate for beginners. Younger or beginning 7-year olds may also prefer this division.
Machine Pitch Baseball
The Machine Pitch division is generally for players with previous organized baseball experience and some beginners. League age 7s should have played as a 6-yr old and learned the basic skills to play at this level.
Minor League Baseball
This division is for players with previous organized baseball experience and some beginners. This is the first level of player-pitch baseball.
major league baseball
This is the highest, most competitive level of play for this age group. All players in this age category are eligible to be selected regardless of prior experience. Players are selected to play on a Major League team by one of the established coaches after the evaluation process. Players not selected to a Major League team are placed on a Minor League team. Once drafted, players remain on the same team through age 12.
Intermediate, Juniors, Seniors, and 18U
Big Leagues at Dilworth, which provide youth between the ages of 13 and 18 an opportunity to continue playing baseball on larger and full-sized fields with their friends in a fun, competitive, and structured environment. This spring we are also planning for a new “Challenge-like” team at the Juniors level!
Dilworth’s Challenge program operates independently of Little League and offers additional instruction and playing opportunities for advanced players. Challenge baseball is open to all players participating on a recreational team in the Spring or Fall. Within the program, teams will be organized to play in local tournaments. Participation in the Challenge program does not guarantee participation on the TOC or All-Star teams as part of Little League.
