Age 6: How early is too early to start playing softball? Not T-ball.

My highly energetic 6 year old daughter wants to follow her sisters and play Softball this spring. She's learning the game via a clinic setting for the next 18 weeks.


I have been told by another parent that our t-ball league (6 - 7 yr olds) is a waste of time as a program for both the kids and parents.

Our minor league consisting of 8 to 12 year olds is your typical town rec league - not very serious or competitive but a good place to learn the basics.


I know that my 6 year old would get more from playing with the older minor group but I'm just not sure we should make the leap this Spring. 6 seems too young in a way - but I think we're going to go for it. I'm being strongly encouraged by an enthusiastic coach to bring her on board. Is 6 too young to play with the 11 year olds?  Any advice out there is appreciated.
