The great Yogi Berra once said "It ain't over 'til it's over." Nothing is more true when it comes to Little League Baseball. It ain't over when you're 12-years-old and just finished playing Little League majors. With Arrowhead Little League, you can play baseball all the way through the middle of your high school years. For our teenagers, there are two divisions of baseball: Junior Baseball for 13 & 14-year-olds and Senior Baseball for 15 & 16-year-olds.Junior Baseball – Spring Season Q&A
Q – What are the big differences between majors and Juniors?
A – Juniors now play on the full size baseball field (90' base paths and 60'6" pitching mound). Lead-offs and pitcher pick-offs are now part of the game.
Q – Where are the games played?
A – Games are played at the Peoria Sports Complex (PSC). This is where the Padres and Mariners do their spring training. You get to play on professional baseball fields. Attention parents - no field set up or clean up (all is taken care of by the PSC staff).
Q – When does the season start and end?
A – The season starts in mid-April and this is for two reasons. First, we have to wait until the Pros are done using the PSC fields. Second, we try to reduce the overlap with middle school baseball. There will be about a two-week overlap between the seasons. This is not a problem - you can play both. We know your school ball is priority and we will work around the school schedule. The season ends in early June.
Q – What teams do we play?
A – You will play teams from Arrowhead and also the other North District 2 leagues which are Deer Valley, Sidewinder, Shaw Butte, Peoria Mountain View, Rio Vista, Cactus Wren, and White Tanks. There are normally 12–16 teams.
Q – What is the competition and talent level?
A – The competition level is just like the Major division or middle school baseball. There will be a couple very good teams, a couple lower level teams, and then all the other teams will be somewhere in the middle.
Q – Are there tryouts?
A – There are no tryouts. To the best of our ability, we will honor friend and coach requests.
Q – Can we wear metal cleats and what bat do we use?
A – You can now wear either metal or rubber cleats. The bat specifications are as follows
Q – Are there All Stars?
A – There are All Stars and we have the exact same tournaments as the Major division: District, State, Regional, and World Series.
Q – When is registration?
A – You will register in January at the same time and place that all of Arrowhead Little League registers. Dates, times, and locations will be posted on the website.
