Midget 18U


Baseball for 16-18 year olds. 18U Midget is a 3-year program.

The 18U Midget division plays 7 innings per game. There are 90 feet between bases and 60 ft. from pitching rubber to home plate. Maximum runs per inning determined by interlock rules, except in the last inning, where unlimited runs may be scored. Lead offs and stealing are allowed, balk balls are called on pitchers and running to 1st on a dropped 3rd strike is allowed (if 1st base is unoccupied, or if 1st base is occupied with 2 out).

The 18U Midget division is tiered and at all levels the teams travel to play other associations. Players may try out for the “College Prep” or “AAA” teams that offer a more competitive level of play.

The “College Prep” and “AAA” teams will play respective teams from other associations.  9-person ball is played at these levels. These are single seasons, with games starting in April, and running until the end of July.

Players not selected to these teams will be selected to play on the “AA” team(s) which offer a more recreational level of play. “AA” team(s) will play “AA” teams from other associations.  All players bat in rotation.

 Summerball: Midget A A offers a summer “All-Star” season. Tryouts usually take place in mid-May. The season usually runs from late June through mid-August with the opportunity to qualify for provincials. There are additional fee(s) for those participating in the summer program. There is travel involved to play other teams.


For Midget AA, players are provided with their own jersey, belt, socks, and a Newton baseball hat.  Other equipment required for this division are white baseball pants, baseball glove, athletic cup, helmet and cleats.  Team bats are provided for use to those who do not have their own bats.  Please see the current BC Minor Baseball Bat Rules if you plan to purchase your own.
