FALL 2022 Recreational Baseball Program

The Brentwood Ball Club provides an opportunity for players up to 18 years old to have a place to play organized baseball in the city of Brentwood.

Since we are the service provider of baseball and softball for the city of Brentwood, 75% of our 12YO & Younger players must reside in the city of Brentwood, while 60% of our 13YO & Older players must reside in the city of Brentwood. 85% of our players must reside in Williamson County. See the Non-Resident Fees section if you reside outside the city of Brentwood.

Format of the Age Divisions
Please refer to our Baseball Rules Progression link to understand the progression by age division of our rules.
-   For both 4/5YO and 6YO age divisions, a coach will attempt to pitch to each batter from a short distance (15' or less) and usually from one knee. If the batter is unsuccessful at five pitches, a tee is used. Batters may immediately use a tee if desired or needed.
-   For both 7YO and 8YO, this is coach pitch play where the pitching distance is 35' away from home plate. A coach pitches to players. Teams play with four outfielders.
-   For 9/10YO, this is kid pitch play with a mound at 46' feet. 
-   For 11/12YO, this is kid pitch play with a mound at 50' feet. Runners are allowed to lead off. 
-   For 13YO & Older, this is kid pitch play with a mound at 60' 6" feet. Runners are allowed to lead off. 


Age Division to Register for
We do not keep score in the fall like we do in the spring and players in the fall will play in the age division they will play the next spring (2023).

Based on their age on 05/01/23, most players will have the opportunity to register for the division of their current age group and one age group higher. We suggest unless your player is definitely advanced, to register your player for the youngest age division offered.
