FALL BALL REGISTRATION
IS NOW OPEN FOR THE 2019 Fall Season!
Below is a brief description of the different divisions we offer within Frankfort Baseball for our Fall Ball Season. Frankfort Baseball offers a fall baseball program designed to provide the opportunity for our players to continue to build their skills in a fun, relaxed environment. Teams will be formed in mid to late August and the season will consist of 10-12 games playing against teams from Frankfort as well as other neighboring towns. The season will begin either late August or beginning of September and be completed by mid-to-late October depending on age division. Players sign up for the age division they plan to play next spring. Frankfort Baseball provides a hat, jersey and socks to players in Pinto, Mustang and Bronco leagues. Players are responsible for baseball pants and cleats. Please wait until you are assigned a team before purchasing your pants. Pants may be purchased at Actions Sports.

League Games begin Sept 3rd
The Pinto Division is for players that are 7 or 8 as of 08/31/2020. At this level players are exposed to more facets of the game of baseball, including pitching, walks, extra-base hits and use of a regulation baseball. There are some Rules that are modified for the youngsters to incorporate fun with player development appropriate for this age group.
The Mustang Division is for players that are 9 or 10 as of 08/31/2020. The Mustang Division players make a big step towards a more complete level of baseball. It is a competitive division, where umpires call the game and scores and league standings are kept. Stealing is allowed only after the pitch has reached the batter. Games are pitched entirely by the players.
The Bronco Division is for players that are 11 or 12 as of 8/31/2020 The Bronco Division is where you begin to play more competitive baseball and follow the rules of Major League Baseball closely. Players are allowed to lead-off and steal from all bases, and the diamond is now 70 feet. Managers have the opportunity to execute the finer tactics of advanced baseball.
The Pony Division is for players that are 13 or 14 as of 08/31/2020. The Pony Division is a competitive division best characterized by fewer players, fewer teams, and bigger fields. By now the players should have an understanding of the rules of the game and acquired the skills and attitude necessary for a more competitive game of baseball. Regular Major League rules are used. The diamond is now 80 feet. Emphasis is placed not only on individual skill development, but, also on team strategies. Players will adjust to larger fields, stronger defenses, and more experienced pitchers and are motivated by their eagerness to play baseball.
The Colt Division is for players that are 15 or 16 as of 08/31/2020. The Colt Division is a competitive division played on a Major League sized field.
The Palomino Division is for players that are 17, 18, or 19 as of 08/31/2020. The Palomino Division is a competitive division played on a Major League sized field.
Tryouts for Frankfort Baseball's full and part time travel teams have begun. Please note that tryouts are age specific and will consist of players trying out for both full time and part time teams. Indicate your team preference on the registration form.
The age cut-off Force players is determined based on the player's age as of April 30, 2020.
However, we encourage players with later birthdays to play with their class in school as opposed to playing with a younger grade. For example, a player who just completed 7th grade and has a birthday in May would still be 13 as of April 30, 2020 and thus be eligible for the 13u team. However, as an 8th grader next year, the player's grade in school would indicate participation at the 14u level. Grade level equivalents are as follows:
15u = 9th grade
11u = 5th grade
14u = 8th grade
10u = 4th grade
13u = 7th grade
9u = 3rd grade
12u = 6th grade
8u = 2nd grade
Frankfort Force is a full-time travel baseball program and its tryouts are open to all interested players. 2019 fees for Force players varied from $1100-$1500.
Players should arrive at the park one-half hour prior to the start time to check in and warm-up. They should wear normal baseball attire and bring their own glove, bat, helmet, and water.
If a player is offered a roster spot, we will collect a $250 non-refundable deposit to secure the roster position. The deposit will be applied towards the 2020 fees.

Thank you very much to the following companies, who literally bailed us out during the Spring Classic Tournament! We literally were up to our knees in water and water is their specialty! Without their help, we would not have been able to continue with the tournament. If you have any needs at home or work, we highly recommend them!
Congratulations to the Champions and Thank you for all of the teams and families for your patience as Mother Nature tried to wash us out but with no success. So many people to thank from the army Volunteers and Parents that assisted and supported the program during the past 5 days of the 2019 Spring Classic. The weather was not kind to us this year, but with every challenge we had to overcome there were the people who were there to make sure the tournament didn’t get cancelled.
