Division Bylaws - 2022: Triple AAA Bylaws

The Enfield Little League Triple AAA division is for 9 - 12-year-old players who are experienced and have graduated from Double AA. These are real games and player pitch. There may be exceptions for players outside of the age range, who may not have enough experience for the Majors division and at the request of their parents, with a signed waiver.

Player Expectations

  • Players by this level should have an excellent grasp of general baseball fundamentals and meet expectations from Tee Ball all the way through Double AA divisions.
  • Players are expected to bring a positive attitude and be a good teammate.
  • Players should know to start in the back of the batter’s box and learn to adjust their location based on the pitcher’s abilities.
  • Players should know when to be “baseball ready” either by SS calling it out or by watching the catcher’s sign - the pitch is coming and therefore be in position to make a play.
  • Players should know how to lead and steal. There are no leads until the pitch crosses the front of the plate. Generally stealing bases is unlimited and all bases are permitted.
  • Players should know that once the pitcher gets the ball on the mound, all running must stop.
  • Players will have good dugout behavior. Focus on the game while in the dugout becomes more important as the player moves up in divisions.

Coaching Expectations

  • Coaches are encouraged to have at least two practices per week.
  • Work with your division director to understand division bylaws.
  • Responsible for maintaining any equipment in lock boxes or provided to you.  
  • Coaches should start to incorporate signs in terms of their catcher giving signs, third base coach giving signs, defensive adjustments, etc.
  • Coaches should try to develop 5 pitchers at this level. Some will be more advanced, but this number of pitchers will give you more options especially in weeks when you have three games.
  • Coaches should develop two catchers. The length of games could make catchers tired and take into consideration the number of games throughout the week.
  • Take time to read the Little League Rule book for the current season.
  • Have a game plan for each practice and adjust their plans as team needs arise.
  • Other towns may not have the same by-laws. Make sure you go over the by-laws & ground rules with the umpire and other coach before the game begins. 
  • Games will be six innings or two hours.  There is a five-run inning rule at which point the inning ends.  Similar to the above in discussing the by-laws with the other coaches, the last inning should be open beyond the rule to allow teams a chance to come back. The exception to this rule will be if a team is leading by ten or more runs.      
  • Communicate with your division director on a regular basis.
  • Be patient. Umpires and kids will make mistakes. Be sure to discuss any rule confusion with the umpire in between innings.
