2016 Age Determination Rules-NEW

The age rules for the 2016 baseball season have changed this year. The link to the Little League Baseball site explains in detail the nature of the changes but here is some brief detail and a new chart for determining the age of your child for the upcoming 2016 baseball season.

What’s the difference?

In 2014, Little League District Administrators initially voted to move the age determination date from April 30 to December 31, effective with the 2018 season. That was amended by District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors in August 2015, moving the date from December 31 to August 31.
