Little Sluggers is a Tee-Ball division. All kids will bat from home plate off a tee. Runners will advance a single base for each batter. Defensive players will attempt to make plays to get runners out. Outs are not called and all players are allowed to run the bases. Once all players have batted the half inning is over and the other team gets to bat. Each game will last three innings. Defensive teams will be allowed to have two coaches in the field of play. These defensive coaches will assist players with the game. Offensive teams are encouraged to have coaches on first and third to assist baserunners. Offensive teams will require a coach at home plate to assist with the player at the plate.
Home Team is responsible for setting up bases, tee and supplying the game ball. Away Team is responsible for putting away bases and tee. Away team is listed first on the schedule, Home team second.
