Final Score

Our Mustang League is the youngest player pitch program and is designed for nine and ten year olds. We do allow for advanced eight year old players to play up in certain circumstances. Eight year old players must attend a spring player evaluation session to be eligible to play up. Each inning consists of three outs and is limited to a five run rule, which is instituted to control the tempo of the game. The base path is set at 60 feet with the pitcher’s mound set at 44 feet. In the Mustang League, stealing is allowed and home base becomes open to steal as the season progresses.

After attending a spring player evaluation session, players are placed on teams via a draft system. Once drafted, the player stays on that team until they move up to the Bronco League. For example, an eight year old drafted onto the Mustang River Dogs will remain on the River Dogs until he moves up to the Bronco League. Players stay with their team to give them, their team and families a sense of consistency.

The season is capped off with an End of Season Tournament as well as an All Star game where teams are formed by the top players from each team.
