Mosquito (11U)


Baseball for 10-11 year olds

The 11U Mosquito Division plays 6 innings per game with all players batting. There are 60 feet between
bases and 46 ft. from pitching rubber to home plate. There is a maximum of 4 runs per inning, except in
the last inning, where unlimited runs may be scored. As of 2009 Pitchers are governed by the new pitch
count rules of BC Minor Baseball rather than by the number of innings pitched. Base stealing is allowed
after the pitch crosses home plate.
Players are assessed and drafted by coaches onto evenly balanced teams. The spring season runs from
April to mid-June. Fair play rules apply and Umpires are required for each game.

is travel involved to surrounding areas. League games can take place any day of the week. Weeknight
games start at 5:30pm in April and move to 6:00pm in May and June. All game scores are recorded, and
standings are in place to determine play off and championship games. Pitch counts are applied to protect
