14U - ADVANCED TRANSITIONAL LEAGUE

14u is the transition league that takes players from the "kid" leagues to "young adult" status. It permits a player to play on a diamond tailored to his size and capability rather than being moved to one with twice the playing area in a single year. 14u is specifically designed for the player in those very formative early-teen years. This division is the last division of play a young ball player will be exposed to before moving onto the full diamond and demands of High School baseball. 

The vast majority of players of league age 13 simply do not belong on a full-size diamond. At the same time, they have outgrown the dimensions of the "kids baseball" diamonds used in 12u and other similar programs.

14u was founded for this very apparent reason. After becoming skillful players in the younger leagues, players in their early teens found themselves unable to compete, to play the game of baseball as it was intended to be played, on the regulation size diamond. 

With bases set 80 feet apart and pitchers throwing from 54 feet, 14u play one of the most fascinating games in all of youth baseball. Well beyond the beginners stage, they have mastered all but the finest points of technique and strategy and can play the game with a skill comparable to that of older players, if you let them play it on a field specifically designed to match their physical limitations.

Important Information

We will allow 15-year-old players in 14u with limited Pitching (1 inning per game). Freshman players on a HS team must sign up before the normal deadline but must wait until after their season is completed to join the team. In this case, contact the league for information on how to receive a discount on your registration.
