Minors softball is for young ladies 9-10 years old. In this division the rules expand significantly from Coach Pitch, most notably with the following changes:
- The girls pitch! During the 1st half of the season there is coach relief after four balls are pitched. Coaches are allowed to throw three pitches to the batter at that point. Second half of the season the girls pitch the entire game.
- Leading off and base stealing allowed after the ball crosses home plate.
- Bunting/Slapping are allowed.
- Dropped 3rd strike is NOT in play.
In this division an 11″ softball and 35′ pitching mound are used. There are 10 defensive positions in the field (4 outfielders). At this level the focus is on expanding knowledge of the game and learning more positioning, fundamentals and rules.
