Bats used in Little League must be USABat certified. Little League Bat Rules

What type of cleats are allowed?

In both Little League baseball and USA Softball 12U and younger, metal cleats are not permitted. We recommend molded cleats where the plastic or rubber studs are molded into the construction of the shoe.

In T-Ball and A Minors we recommend sneakers to prevent injury when children accidentally step on eachothers feet.

What age group should I sign my child up for?

Baseball:
Little League age is based on the child’s age as of August 31 of the current year. Little League Age Calculator

Softball:
USA Softball age is based on the child’s age as of December 31 of the current year.

What are tryouts?

Tryouts are mandatory for all 7–12 year-olds in the baseball program. 7 year-olds who wish to “play up” must try out. The purpose of tryouts is so we can place all players in the appropriate division based on their ability level. Skills evaluated include throwing and catching, fielding, hitting, and pitching.

Can my child “play up”?

There are circumstances where a child may play up a level at the parent’s request:

  • 5 year-olds may play in the A division with 1 year of T-Ball or relevant experience.
  • 6 year-olds may play in the AA division.
  • 7 year-olds may play in the AAA division (a tryout is mandatory).
  • 8–9 year-olds cannot play in the Majors division.
  • 12 year-olds may play in the Junior division.
  • To request to play up and/or any additional questions please contact the league player agent, Brian McDonnell.
What are the rules?

The Little League Rulebook is available as a free app for your phone. In some of our divisions we add additional local rules for increased safety and to aid in player development.
