2015 Little League Age - See Chart Below

FOR BASEBALL DIVISIONS ONLY

In April 2014, the International Congress approved the new league age determination amendment for Little League Baseball®. To implement the new amendment, it was decided to include a three-year waiting period to execute the change, starting in 2018. Questions from the field were raised about the impact the change would have on players that were currently league age 8 under the traditional system. Using feedback from Little League® parents through our District Administrators, the Little League International Board of Directors adjusted the April-approved implementation strategy in order to modify the impact on all of our minor and major division players. The adjustment also allows for an easier transition for players in the early years of Little League participation.

As a result of this recent adjustment to the implementation strategy, effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 4-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in a local Little League program and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the remainder of their Little League Baseball career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure.

Consequently, players born prior to January 1, 2006 will continue to utilize the current age determination date of April 30 for the next three Little League Baseball seasons. Starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball season, all players will utilize the age determination date of December 31.

As stated, with this implementation strategy adjustment the impact on our players will be reduced, with the exception of a marginal impact on players currently participating in the very early stages of their Little League career. Furthermore, our continued focus on fun, fitness and fundamentals at the Tee Ball Division will assist local leagues as they look to provide a smooth transition to the Coach/Machine Pitch divisions of play while still developing a passion for the game as well as focusing on skill development.

Little League Challenger Program

Once again, Coles is sponsoring a CHALLENGER PROGRAM team for handicapped youngsters.  This Little League chartered "no fee" program provides the Little League Baseball experience to those who are not physically able to participate in the regular program.  The players, their buddies, and all of the volunteers who have participated in the past have had a great time.  If you have a youngster, ages five through high-school, who would be interested in playing, or if you can volunteer some of your time to these ballplayers, please contact David McClure at David.S.McClure@nga.mil.

Rockies/Astros Claim Titles in Intermediate and AAA

The Fall Season came to a close this past weekend with the conclusion of the End of Season Double Elimination Tournaments in Intermediate (50/70) and AAA.

The Rockies captured the Intermediate Championship with an 8-7 win over the Braves in the Championship Game. 

In AAA, The Astros fended off a comeback attempt by the Reds to win the final game 13-12 and claim the Championship of the Division.

Both the Rockies and the Astros completed the season with one loss each during both regular season and end of season tournaments combined.

Congratulations to all the kids that played in Coles Little League this Fall from Tee Ball up to Seniors.  We hope you enjoyed the season and look forward to seeing everyone in the Spring.
