Sandpoint Little League

Juniors


Juniors Baseball (13-14) Players cannot be born before May 1, 2002. This is the first level where players play on 90-foot base paths and 60-foot pitching mound. For most players, this will be their first experience playing baseball just like the big leagues.

Note: Due to lack of interest in Seniors (15-year olds usually play JV or Freshman baseball) and a lack of Seniors opponents, Sandpoint Little League is not expecting to field a Seniors team.

Teams

Mandatory tryouts at this level ensure teams have an even amount of talent and pitchers. Players are drafted by coaches and placed on a team. Players playing on JV and Varsity High School teams are encouraged to attend the try-out; however, they will be drafted to teams based on coaches’ evaluations from the High School Season.

Season

Teams practice begin the week after Spring Break with games starting in late April running through early June. Coaches may hold up to 3 practices per week. Senior League Games will start as soon as the High School Season is over.

Location

Home games are played at Memorial Field in Sandpoint or the Pine Street Complex just east of SWAC on Pine St. Interleague play is a big part of the Juniors and teams are traveling to other communities for games on a regular basis. Teams are typically scheduled to have an equal number of home and away games; however, this depends on the number of teams in each community as well as field availability.

Game

There is no time limit on games at this level. Games are played in the afternoon with the times varying. Games are scheduled Monday through Saturday. There may be Double Header games scheduled.

Equipment

Jersey (T-shirt) and baseball cap are provided to players by the league. SLL also provides coaches with helmets, bats, and catching equipment. Cleats and baseball pants are required. Players need to have a baseball mitt.

All-Stars

A (13-14) Juniors All-Star team is fielded from players at this level. The All-Star team is formed in early-June and travels to several tournaments in North Idaho including the Juniors Little League regional tournament in July. This may include additional fees and costs for each player. As soon as more information is available we will update. Read more about the All Star Selection Process.
