The Shetland Division is for players that are 4 or 5 years old as of 08/31/2022. The Shetland division is a T-ball division.  Coach pitch is introduced half way through the season.  At this level players are introduced to the very basics of baseball. This league does not keep score or record outs and uses a continuous batting order where every player bats every inning. A softer safety baseball is used.
MORGAN

The Morgan Division is for players that are 6 years old as of 08/31/2022. At this level players continue their basic skill development in an instructional format, where coaches pitch to the players for the first half of the season and players pitch the second half.  Rules are modified for the youngsters to incorporate fun with player development appropriate for this age group. A softer safety baseball is used.

The Pinto Division is for players that are 7 or 8 years old as of 08/31/2022. 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 08/31/2022. 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 08/31/2022. The Bronco Division is where you begin to play more competitive baseball and follow the rules of Major League Baseball closely.

The Pony Division is for players that are 13 or 14 as of 08/31/2022. 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.

Joseph Scaletta

Our deepest condolences go out to the Scaletta Family. We mourn the loss of a long time and current board member of Frankfort Baseball, Joseph Scaletta.  Joe was a long time Board Member even before since his son Sam started in 2007. Joe worked tirelessly at almost every level and the latest being at the upper levels of Pony/Colt/Palomino/Collegiate.  He was instrumental in Frankfort Baseball joining SWILA as well as coordinator of the Frankfort Baseball Scholarship program with Lincoln-Way East and area high schools.  Joe's pride and joy was Borg Warner field.  He worked endless at its upkeep.  If we had a tournament, you would have seen Joe there volunteering.  Joe loved baseball especially Frankfort Baseball.  Outside of baseball Joe was the Co-Founder of Scaletta Armoring in Bedford Park, IL. Private family funeral services will be held at Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Church on December 1, 2020. Funeral Information: Cumberland Chapels, 708-456-8300 or www.cumberlandchapels.com.

Memorial contributions can be made in memory of Joseph V. Scaletta to Frankfort Baseball online here or you can mail a check to Frankfort Baseball, P.O. Box 261, Frankfort, IL 60423.
