Junior League is a developmental bridge between Little League and Senior League. The field size is still slightly reduced from the full size but the full rules apply, runners can “take leads”, but can also be “picked off”, “balks” are introduced.

Age (2018/2019 season):

Baseball uses a “baseball age” matrix to determine which age group applies. Players who have a baseball age of  13 or 14 will play Junior League (the matrix makes this easy to determine).

Training:

Thursdays 5:30pm – 7:00pm.

Training for the pre-Christmas competition will commence mid August with first game likely to be Oct 6.

Games:

Saturday 10:15am or 12:30am start for a 2 hour game. Games are run by the GBL (in accordance with Baseball Queensland). Games are typically late Saturday morning or early Saturday afternoon. Team sizes are 9 on the field plus bench players; teams up to around 11 or 12.

Equipment Required:

Junior Gameday Shirt, club cap, white baseball pants, glove, protective cup, sneakers, moulded or metal cleat shoes. Click here for more information about uniforms.

Game Volunteers:

Coach, Assistant Coach, Scorer (Skilled), Umpire (Qualified), Canteen

Season played in two competitions:

The season is divided into two competitions – pre-Christmas and post-Christmas with both competitions ending with a finals series. The pre-Christmas season usually consists of 9 to 10 Saturdays in School Term 4 and the post-Christmas season will be played over another 9 to 10 Saturdays in Term 1 after school returns from the Xmas break. Typically, there are no games or training during the Xmas school holiday period.
