You can hit right and left handed in the same at bat. If you switch sides while the pitcher is in the ready position you are automatically out (safety issue).

no hitting and no looking out the whindo

The basic gameplay rules are the same, but I'm sure there are certain managerial and coach rules that are different. I know that many little league coaches are not allowed to walk to the pitcher's mound. They have to stop at the foul line. I would assume there are slight changes in rules to NCAA as well, but nothing that would change the basic gameplay.

Little League Rule 1.12 - A catcher must wear a catcher's mitt(not a first basemans mitt or a fielders glove) any shape, size or weight consistent with protecting the hand.

MLB players do that sometimes. I don't see why the rules would be different in little-league. A player can hit the ball with the bat in any way he pleases.

no traveling and hitting people ect

maybe hitting is bad or maybe not

If you are generically using the word "little league" then the answer is yes. Under USSSA rules you can bat the entire lineup and after the 9th batter the remainder are called EH's (extra hitters) or terms similar. These individuals will not take the field but bat when the 10 & 11 slots come up. If you are speaking of Little League Baseball Rules (official term) then I believe you bat 9 and have substitutions.

Depends on what age your talking about. On many league websites they usually post the rules of there games, including the distance that the pitcher pitches.

There are several things different in the two. Little league Dixie Youth has a set of rules. Dizzy Dean (different age groups) have different rules. The difference will be seen moving more toward Major League baseball but not entirely! Examples: 1. Balk-High school has them little league 10U doesn't. 11U ball does have balks unless the local ground rules don't. 2. In High school there is no run limit per inning but there are various kinds of run limits in little league. 3. The infield-fly rule is in effect in high school No infield fly rule in little league 10U but 11U usually do have it. 4. The equipment, field size, length of the game, allowed coaches, pitch calls, etc. are some obvious ones but there are many. Sadly, Most people will not take the time to read the rules and if they do they need to spend time thinking of the situational settings before the play is made. As an umpire it is difficult to keep the two seperate but it can be done with diligence. The coach, parent should do the same.

The national league "Senior League" refers to the youth league after "Little League" but before High School. Senior League players are usually between the ages of 13-15 and/or grades 7-9. Most Senior Leagues allow bats larger than the 2.25" Little League approved bat diameter, and bats can be lighter than the High School -3 minimum weight/length, but the bat weight ratio limits vary with the specific senior league organization. For example, Catholic Youth Athletic Association limits grade 7-8 bats to -7 weight ratio (no lighter). So, be careful when shopping for a "Senior League" bat as the rules for different organizations are less consistent than they are for the 9-12 year olds that usually follow Little League rules.
