Little League Baseball & Softball - Florida District 13: Welcome

Tuesday, February 2
Spring Registration is Here

Here it is again... another new Spring season!  Hard to believe that each year passes so quickly. This is District 13's 47th year of passing on the rules and regulations from Williamsport and holding Little League post-season tournaments.

Interesting in playing Little League, but not sure what League your child would play at? Send an email to mbarry@tampabay.rr.com with your current address and city, and we'll let you know what League boundary you live in.

What's Been Happening?
Both East Point Little League and South Brandon Little League decided to not charter for 2016 and moved over to another youth sports organization.

New boundaries have been drawn for our remaining three leagues, so be sure to check the boundary maps at our Boundary link. 

Everyone involved in Little League (parents, coaches, league officials) should join the new Little League University. This is a great way to learn the ins-and-outs of Little League and what it offers--which is a lot.  Join and find out for yourself!

Little League International Board of Directors Amends Age Determination Date Implementation
At its August 2015 meeting, the Little League International Board of Directors amended the age determination date for all divisions of Little League Baseball to move to August 31, starting with the 2018 season. 

Effective as of November 13, 2015, a new implementation plan has been established, grandfathering children born between May 1 and August 31, 2005 as 12-year-olds for the 2018 season, using the April 30 age determination date. This four-month group of individuals will begin utilizing the new August 31 age determination date beginning with the 2019 season.  

All other children participating in Little League Baseball will continue to follow the implementation strategy established in August 2015, which is to use August 31 as the age determination date.  Moving the age determination date allows Little League to work toward its goals of becoming a younger organization, provides children more opportunities play with their friends and classmates, and make the Little League (Major) Baseball Division truly a 12 and under program.
