Little League Adds New Rules for 2016-17
intermediate WS logo

Little League Baseball has announced rule changes, some of which will take effect immediately, and some which will be implemented in 2017.

The rules that impact 2016 are all in regard to postseason tournament play:

• League Presidents are now allowed to participate on tournament teams as a manager or coach, if they meet all other eligibility criteria and receive written permission from their District Administrator

• Age structures for the youngest three tournament divisions have been changed to: an 8/9/10-year-old division, a 9/10/11-year-old division, and a 10/11/12-year-old division. Ages for the divisions of Intermediate and above have not changed.

• The first date when leagues can announce All-Star teams or begin practicing has been changed to June 1. This date only applies for teams who have had all eligibility approvals completed.

The change to be implemented in 2017 will allow players in the Majors division and above to participate on teams in two different divisions. Players will still only be eligible to play on one tournament team per season.

To see results on voting for these new rule changes and further information about the changes, you can go to the Little League website. 



Little League Updates Age Determination Date
LL Website Logo

Over the past couple of years, there has been a lot of discussion about the Little League Baseball Age Determination Date. This is an important topic to everyone involved in Little League, and the Little League International Board of Directors has now decided to change the Age Determination Date for all divisions of Little League Baseball and the Little League Challenger Division to August 31.

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 the Little League International Board of Directors in August 2015, moving the date from December 31 to August 31.

HERE IS HOW THIS IMPACTS YOUR PLAYERS:

For players born on or before April 30, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born between May 1, 2005 and August 31, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2019 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016, 2017, 2018 season, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The August 31 age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.

Challenger Division – The Best Part of Little League!
LL Website Logo

Come See A Challenger Game Soon!

The Challenger Division of Little League Baseball is a program for mentally and physically disabled youth to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. The program is available to any special needs child between the ages of 5-18, or who is in an ongoing high school program up to the age of 22.

More than the skills of baseball are learned through the experience. The value of the Little League Challenger Division is found in the proven therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports, the strengthening of participants’ self-esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play, and the disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play which are hallmarks of the Little League program.

The philosophy of the Little League Challenger Division is to provide the framework so that every Little League program may offer a structured, athletic activity for all youth in the community. Challenger Division participants learn not only the fundamentals of baseball, but also how it feels to be just like other children pulling together as a team, being cheered, and earning awards for their achievements.

Currently, District 32 has Challenger Division teams in four of its leagues (Mira Mesa, Rancho Penasquitos, Peninsula and University City), with hopes to expand the program to all of the other leagues in our District as well.

Little League Pledge????
LL Pledge Logo

Yes, the Little League pledge - In touring our local leagues there are still several that do not recite the pledge...  Question is why not?  I have yet to see the Junior Division say the pledge before the game.  Please - Remind our children why they are playing baseball and the expectations we have for them.  Sure we want them to have fun, but win or lose ....  They should know the pledge!  When the tournaments start and we do say the pledge before each of those games, it is embarrassing for some that they do not know the words to the Little League Pledge .....  Please have all your teams reciting the pledge before their games....Thank you



OUR MISSION
The mission of the local league shall be to implant firmly in the youth of the
community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage
and respect for authority, so that they may be well adjusted, stronger
and happier children and will grow to be decent, healthy and trustworthy adults.
To achieve this objective, the local league will provide a supervised
program of competitive baseball and softball games under the rules
and policies of Little League Baseball, Incorporated.
Directors, officers and members shall bear in mind that stressing=
exceptional athletic skills or winning of games is secondary,
and that type of leadership extended is of prime importance.
