With Fort Belvoir’s 2019 Little League baseball season underway, teams are taking to the fields to once again wow spectators with increasingly dynamic match ups.

Amid ideal weather and field conditions, the youngest athletes in the installation’s baseball program redefined enthusiasm and team pride when the Red Sox and the White Sox faced off for a fast-paced Tee-ball division match up at Specker Field.

The Tee-ball division is designed by Child and Youth Services to introduce the community’s youngest players to the game and teach the fundamentals of hitting and fielding in a safe and controlled setting. Athletes then continue developing their skills in the coach-pitch and machine-pitch programs before progressing to the Minor and Major divisions for regulation games.

Fort Belvoir Little League is comprised of military family members ages 4-16 and is divided into six age-specific divisions — Tee-ball, ages 4-6; machine pitch, ages 7-8; Minors and Majors, ages 9-12; and Juniors and Seniors, ages 13-16.

Regular season games are played Saturdays and one weekday (usually a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) at various locations on and around Belvoir.
