Divisions & Age Groups

Players can enter our league playing co-ed T-ball at 5 years old and we have baseball divisions serving boys from age 6 to 15.  Ages indicated for the 2024 season are based on child's age as of April 30th, 2024. 

  • Co-ed T-ball - T-ball for boys and girls age 5. 
  • Boys Lob Baseball - coach pitch for boys ages 6-7.

  • Boys Junior Baseball - for boys ages 9-10. Players are evaluated and assigned to teams.
  • Boys Senior Baseball - for boys ages 11-12. Players are evaluated and assigned to teams.
  • Boys Pony League Baseball - for boys ages 13-15*.  Huntertown Lions Baseball sponsors team(s) of 13-15 year-old boys to play against teams from other leagues.
    • This league is a competitive league and includes teams from Churubusco, Leo, Avilla, Garrett and Kendallville to name a few.
    • Like a school league, about half of the league games will be played at Huntertown and the other half at the home field of the team being played.
    • It is an especially great fit for kids that would still like to play baseball beyond the Senior league, but weren't sure what options were available to them.
    • This is a tryout league and Huntertown will attempt to form as many teams possible while still being competitive. Please go ahead and register now . If we are unable to place you on a team, we will refund your registration.
    • *Boys age 15 can play on Huntertown Lions' Pony league teams, but are disqualified if they play on their high school baseball team.
