Fall Training & Development (TAD)
Fall ball usually starts in September and ends early November. It is strictly instructional and no games are scored.

Placement in American or National League
Hollister Little League is split into two Leagues, American and National. Placement in a league is determined by the players birthday.

ODD month birthday = AMERICAN
EVEN month birthday = NATIONAL

The exception: In the case where siblings play ball and they don't fit the even/odd rule, the birthday month of the OLDEST player determines placement in the league.

Definition of the Players Age
The age of the player from May 1st to April 30th is age he'll play all season. So, if he turns 11 on April 30th, he'll play as 11-year old all season. If he turns 11 on May 1st, he'll play as a 10-year old.
