As they develop, the children are taught higher level skills,all with the value of good sportsmanship and teamwork. Our intent is for children to have FUN and to enjoy the sport they play while learning the character building lessons that come from participating in team sports. PLTL emphasizes the fundamentals of baseball as players are taught the basics of hitting, throwing, catching and base-running within a framework of teamwork and sportsmanship.

OFFERED PROGRAMS

Recreational

PLL’s Recreational Baseball League consists of an age progression of playing levels for pre-K through age 14. The program is started at the Kindergarten level with T-ball and then progresses to 8U where the ball is pitched by a coach. The continuing program mirrors the real world progression of baseball and starts with 10U player pitch and continues through 12U and 14U baseball.

Fall Baseball

Fall baseball is an instructional program that is avaliable to players of all skill levels between the ages of 6 to 14 years old.  The season runs from September to late October.  The age groups are identical to the spring season, however PLTL sets the age cut offs for each division as they would occur the following spring season. This will help boys gain a head start on the coming season and adjust early on to the new dimension of their respective next playing level.

PLTL DOES NOT OFFER TRAVEL BASEBALL
