2018 Rule - Regulation Changes
Little League has POSTED their 2018 Rule/Regulation Changes on their Website. One important change for 2018 is allowing more than eight 12 year olds on a major baseball team and also not having to split your major baseball division if you have more than 10 teams. These changes are for 2018 only due to the 16 month age bracket of 12 year olds in baseball.
