Inwood Little League offers programs for kids ages 4–18 year-round.

Spring Baseball League
The spring season begins in early April with our annual Opening Day Parade and games. The season ends in late June. All games are played at Inwood Hill park. See below for more descriptions.


Instructional Divisions: these groups require a lot of parent help and volunteers. These are non-competitive and are designed to teach players the basics of baseball while having fun.

  • Rookies (4 year olds, T-ball)
    • Games are on Sunday mornings at 11am. This is “t-ball,” where kids are introduced to baseball. They learn the basics of the game including how to run the bases, fielding “alligator” style, hitting the ball off a tee and just learning to have fun playing the game.
  • Superstars (age 5–6, Coach Pitch)
    • Games on Saturday mornings at 11am. Kids continue baseball instruction while playing 2–3 innings games. The coaches pitch to their own teams and every player gets to bat and play the field.
  • Farms (ages 7–8, Coach Pitch & Kid Pitch)
    • Games are on Saturday mornings at 9am. Kids continue coach pitch but transition to kid-pitch mid-season. Games are played and outs are counted. The goal is to prepare them to play real baseball in the Minors.

Competitive Divisions: Players in these divisions play real baseball games with umpires and scores. All players MUST show up to all games and practices. Practices happen at least once a week.

  • Minors (ages 9–10)*
    • 2 games every WEEKEND. Saturdays AND Sundays (9am–5pm) on the Inwood Peninsula, field 6.
    • This is the first level of competition. Players are drafted to teams based on skills they demonstrate in the Farms and at tryouts. In this division, players are expected to know the basics of fielding, baserunning, and hitting. They will practice all these skills and further develop pitching, base-stealing, and being part of a competitive team. Players stay with the same team until they move up to the Majors.
    • Minors players also have the chance to play with our 10U travel team.
  • Majors (ages 11–12)*
    • 2–3 WEEKDAY games at 5:30pm on field 6.
    • This is the next level of competition. Here players continue to develop the baseball and team-building skills they’ve been learning since the rookies. Players stay with their teams until they move up to the Juniors/Seniors.
    • Majors players also have the chance to play with our 12U travel team.
  • Juniors (ages 13–14)*
    • 2–3 WEEKDAY games at 5:30pm on fields 1 & 5.
    • In this division, players move up to the larger fields, and they must use wooden bats.
    • Juniors and Seniors may combine depending on registration numbers.
  • Seniors (ages 15–16)*
    • 2–3 WEEKDAY games at 5:30pm on fields 1 & 5.
    • This is our highest level of “Little League” baseball. In this division, coaches demand a lot of their players in terms of execution of skills, knowledge of the game, and responsibilities as a teammate. As size and strength increase in our players, the speed of the game increases. This level is not for first-time players.

*The age ranges are not set in stone. Some players may be placed in the appropriate divisions according to skill level.

Summer Baseball League
The Summer League begins in early July and runs through the end of August. Registration begins in May and divisions typically include Superstars (5–7), Minors (8–10), Majors (10–12), and Seniors (13–16). Players are placed in the appropriate divisions according age and skill level.

Often teams representing other leagues, such as, Michael Buscek, New Era, Harlem Youth, etc., play in the summer league.  This gives our kids a chance to play against different players from around our city.

Most of the rules are the same as the Spring League (Little league Rules) except for a few variations within divisions.

Fall Baseball League (Pelotazo)
The Fall League begins in early September and runs through early November. Registration begins in August and divisions typically include Majors (10–12), and Seniors (13–16). Players are placed in the appropriate divisions according age and skill level.

Kids often have the opportunity to “play up” and experience or preview the next-level league during Fall League. And like in the summer, teams from other leagues in the city join us to play.
