The league, which is open to players who are ages 5 to 12 as of May 1, has three divisions: Junior Minors (grades K to 2), which includes a tee or pitching by a coach, Minors (grades 2 to 4) in which the kids pitch, and Majors (grades 5 to 7), which has umpires and tournament play. Players can play up or down a division based on their skill level.
The league holds skills and drills practices at the Philipstown Community Center at 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays. It also plans clinics led by the Haldane High School baseball team and coaches.
