New AGE DETERMINATION for Baseball only!!!

**PLEASE NOTE- THIS IS NOT A MECHANICSVILLE LITTLE LEAGUE ADJUSTMENT, IT IS DIRECTED BY LITTLE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL** 

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 reminder of their Little League career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure.

JAN FEB MAR APR MAY JUN JUL AUG SEP OCT NOV DEC AGE

Consequently, players born prior to January 1, 2006 will continue to utilize the current age determination date of April 30 for the 2015 season. With this omplementation strategy adjustment, the impact will be on our players currently participating in the very early stages of their Little League career, but at a minimum. MLL's main focus is still on fun, fitness and fundamentals

BINGO AND BINGO LOT PARKING: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Did you know that Mechanicsville Little League runs Bingo?  On Thursday Nights from 5pm - 10:30pm, MLL volunteers work Bingo.  MLL is the only Little League in the area who provides this entertainment.  The income from Bingo allows us to keep registration costs down.  We also need volunteer workers to sell "instant tickets" during Bingo. Instant Tickets are sold for $1.00 per ticket. If you want to learn more about Bingo, contact Chuck Boyle at cbhokie24@aol.com.

On Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday the Bingo Lot is closed to the Little League until 7:30 P.M.  On Saturday, all Little League cars must be out of the Bingo Lot by 12 P.M. If you have a game at 1 P.M. or later, please park in the grass parking lot by fields 1,2,and 3.  If you have a Handicap License plate or an official Handicap sign, you can park in the Bingo Lot. Bingo provides MLL with the majority of the funds needed to operate the Complex, equipment and helps keep your registration fees down.
