Early registration for fall baseball opens the 1st of July and closes the first Sunday in August. Mandatory assessments are held each fall for kid pitch divisions with teams forming mid to late August. Teams in the youngest division, Rookies, are formed at the same time and mostly assigned based on which school your child attends.

Anyone within Boise city limits can register to play for our fall baseball division. [sg_popup id=8]

Choose a division from one of the blue tabs below:

Rookies is a division offered in the fall season for boys and girls ages 5 to 7, as well as inexperienced players that are age 8 (view age chart for boys). The Rookies division serves as an introductory to full baseball rules. The field increases in size, real baseballs are used, outs do count, and batters will hit off pitches thrown by the coach. This will help them build confidence in hitting a moving ball without the fear of getting hit by the ball. Players will begin to make defensive outs and switch sides (offense/defense) when 3 outs are achieved in an inning. The purpose for this division is to build on what was learned in Tee Ball or Rookies in spring by continuing to practice and develop skills in hitting, catching, throwing, and base running, while also adding more basic rules and defensive strategy in baseball. Score will not be kept during games and there will be no divisional winners or end of season tournament.

Teammate or Coach Requests
Teams are formed based on the elementary school your child attends. During registration, you may request to play with a friend/player from another school and/or a particular coach. Both parents must make the request to be validated. We do try to fulfill requests, but cannot guarantee that your request will be fulfilled.

Playing Up
If parents would like to request their child plays up from Rookies to be assessed for 60′ baseball, then they must do so after completing registration for the Rookies division and must attend assessments with the 60’s players.


Practices and Games

Practices will start the third week of August and take place two nights per week leading up to the first game. Games are played at Simplot Sports Complex on fields A and F. Once games begin, teams will generally practice once per week. Games will begin early September and run until mid October. Generally 6-8 games per season with 1-2 games per week.

For Parents

Because this season is so short, we try to bring more experienced coaches to coach these teams. This generally helps these young players progress quicker and helps parents interested in coaching have a chance to learn from an experienced youth coach. If you are able to assist your team’s coach, then please do so. If your child’s coach is new to coaching, then at the very least, please have patience with them as they begin their endeavor into coaching youth sports. This league runs entirely on volunteers so the true strength of the league comes from parents stepping up to contribute in any way they can. Kids learn to play baseball from repetition, so please work with your child at home reinforcing what is taught in practices and games.

Equipment Needed
  • Youth baseball glove, typically 10″, soft leather recommended
  • Plastic molded cleats
  • Youth baseball bat (optional), stamped USSSA 1.15 BPF, 2-1/4″ barrel diameter or bats stamped USA Baseball (any barrel diameter)
  • Baseball pants, style per the recommendation of your child’s coach

EBYBS will provide your coach with helmets, catcher’s gear, and baseballs for the team, along with hats and jerseys for each player.

60′ is a division offered in the fall season for boys ages 8 and 9, with older, less experienced players included as well (view age chart for boys). This is the fall version of Majors 60′, but less competitive, more laid back, and skews towards younger ages compared to the spring Majors 60′ division. Some pitchers are experienced and accurate while others are still gaining experience. The field size has standard 60′ base paths with a 46′ pitching distance. There are no significant limitations to game play in this division.

In fall 60′, players are working to prepare themselves for the Majors 60′ spring season. Some are getting used to faster pitching while others are learning new positions in a more laid back environment than the spring season. Scores and standings will be kept.

Mandatory Assessments
Assessments are conducted before the season to determine teams. This is done to create more balanced teams and help determine which division is safest for your child. Assessments generally involve playing catch with another player, catching a couple fly balls, fielding a couple grounders, and a short batting practice.

Playing Up or Down
If parents would like to request their child plays up from 60′ to be assessed for 70′, then they must do so after completing registration for the 60′ division. If you register your child for 60′, and at assessments it is determined your child will be safer in a lower division, then we will place your child on a team in the Rookies division.

Teammate or Coach Requests
Requests for certain teammates or coaches will not be honored in this division. The only way to select your child’s coach is to volunteer to coach the team yourself or assist someone you know.


Practices and Games

The fall season is unique in that games are played all across the valley. Most games are still played at Simplot Sports Complex on fields 3 and 4. Other games can be played at Meridian, Kuna, Nampa, or Mountain Home. Practice times are available on these same fields before and during the season, as well as the batting cages nearby. Games will begin late August or early September and run until mid October. Generally 12 games per season with a double header each Saturday.

For Parents

Coaches at this level generally are more experienced than lower divisions and have knowledge of the game. That doesn’t mean they don’t need your help. If you are able to assist your team’s coach, then please do so. At the very least, please have patience with these coaches as they continue their endeavor into coaching youth sports. This league runs entirely on volunteers so the true strength of the league comes from parents stepping up to contribute in any way they can. Kids learn to play baseball from repetition, so please work with your child at home reinforcing what is taught in practices and games.

70′ is a division offered in the fall season for boys ages 10 and 11 (view age chart for boys). The 70′ field size has an extended 70′ base path with a 50′ pitching distance. Significant changes to this division from Majors 60’s include the ability for runners to take leads and steal once the pitcher starts their motion towards home and batter-runners advancing to first base on a dropped third strike. There are no major limitations to game play in this division.

In fall 70′, players are working to prepare themselves for the Majors 70′ spring season. Some are getting used to faster pitching and a larger field, while others are learning new positions in a more laid back environment than the spring season. Scores and standings will be kept.

Mandatory Assessments
Assessments are conducted before the season to determine teams and only a small percentage of the 11 and 12 year old players that assess will be placed on Majors 70′ teams. This is done to maintain a high level of competition in this division. Assessments generally involve playing catch with another player, catching a couple fly balls, fielding a couple grounders, and a short batting practice.

Playing Up or Down
If parents would like to request their child plays up from Majors 60′ to be assessed for Majors 70′, then they must do so after completing registration for the Majors 60′ division. If you register your child for Majors 70′, and at assessments it is determined your child will be better suited in Majors 60′, then we will place your child on a team in Majors 60′. Playing on a 70′ team one season does not guarantee your child will be on a 70′ team the next season.
