Is my four year old eligible to play this Spring?

    Your child is eligible to play this Spring if s/he will be age 5 no later than April 30th. Unfortunately, our insurance will not cover 4 year olds and there are no exceptions.

Where and when will practices be held?

    There are many factors that will influence where, when, and how often teams will practice, including age level of the child, field availability, manager's schedule, etc. The manager of each team will notify parents about practices based on field availability as designated by the league.

What equipment does my child need to play Little League?

    At minimum, your child will need a baseball glove (not plastic) and an athletic supporter with a hard cup. The league will supply a team jersey and hat. Most children will also require uniform pants, belt, and (non-metal) cleats, which the league does not provide. The league provides each team with several bats, several batting helmets, and catcher’s gear. Players can bring their own bats, helmets and catcher’s equipment if they choose, but are not required to furnish these items themselves.

Why are all 12 year olds required to play in Majors starting in the 2008 season?

    The purpose of the new regulation is to ensure that local leagues are using the Minor Division as a training ground, and not keeping capable 12-year-olds from “moving up.” For those 12-year-olds who may lack the skills to play at the Major Division level, there is a process for allowing them to play in the Minor Division, provided certain conditions are met. However, the prohibition on 12-year-olds pitching in the Minor Division remains.
