Tee-ball and Coach-Pitch Field Layout Diagram

This diagram is for coach-pitch only (the 30' base hash marks are used in coach-pitch but NOT 8u).

CP Field Layout Details

60' bases

30' hash mark between 1st & 2nd, 2nd & 3rd, 3rd & home

8' radius circle placed 35' from home (with hash mark drawn or pitching rubber placed at 30')

Batter's boxes should be 6" off the plate (see diagram)

"Foul lines" should be entirely in fair territory (foul lines should essentially run over the outside edge of 1st & 3rd base, not next to them)

Tee-Ball Field Layout Details

60' bases

8' radius circle placed 35' from home (with hash mark drawn or pitching rubber placed at 30')

8' radius arch drawn off home plate (to mark the short hit "foul" territory)

Tee-ball does NOT require 30' hash mark between bases


The specifics of Player Eligibility is addressed in the recreational baseball league rules above.  As addressed under "Residency/School Rule", no more than one player shall be from another school system and/or community (local association).   

To clarify, all rec players must at least either attend the school or live within the township that the team's local association represents.

For situations where there is an out-of-area player, a Player Release is required, which is posted below.   The release/acknowledgment should authorized by both community representatives and then submitted to Neobaseball  - no later than the roster turn-in date.
