Little League Leauge Age Change

Little Leagues Families,

In November Little League National changed the League Age (LA) determination date for baseball.  Historically Little League League Age for baseball, sluggers and T-Ball was determined by the child’s age as of April 30th of the given season.  The new League Age determinate date is December 31st.  Here is the summary of the changes…

  1. If your child was born before January 1st, 2006 your child will continue to use Little League’s old LA determination date until they age out of Little League.  If your child was born after January 1st, 2006 they will use the new LA determination date until they age out of Little League.

  2. The change does not affect the 2015 LA of any player born before May 1, 2006.

  3. If your child was born between May 1st and December 31st (of 2006 and any year since then) your child “skipped” a League Age year.  Example:  If you were born in June of 2007, last season you were League Age 6 and this year you are League age 8.  The player did not have a League Age 7 year.

  4. If your child was born between January 1st and April 30th (of 2006 and any year since then) they progressed from the 2014 season to the 2015 season “normally.”  Example:  If you were born in March of 2007, last season your child was League Age 7.  This season your child is League Age 8.

The effect on Little League is somewhat yet to be seen.  The MIBGC and MILL board have discussed the change, but will be adapting as the season progresses.  In any event, please consult Little League’s League Age chart.  Click here to view it.

The change should not change the registration process that much.  You are encouraged to register your child for the next level in their progression (listed below).  Of course if your child skipped a year due to the change, your decision is a little more complicated.  You will have to decide which league is the most appropriate decision for your child.  There are division descriptions on the baseball page of the MILL website.  The MIBCG will also help you any way it can.  Please don’t hesitate to email or call.  Thank you.
