 New Chartering and Insurance Enrollment Process for 2017

Due to unforeseen circumstances in updating the Little League Data Center for the 2017 season, the convenience of chartering your league online is not available at this time. Completion and submission of a charter application and insurance enrollment form is the only method to charter and purchase insurance for 2017. Little League encourages leagues to submit their insurance premiums in full prior to January 1, 2017 in order to avoid a lapse in coverage. These forms are included in the Local League Resource Guide that has been mailed to your League President (that Little League International currently has on file). If your league has not receive its Local League Resource Guide including its chartering information, please contact your District Administrator or check with a past-League President. You are welcome to contact your regional office or Little League International, as well.

January Is a Busy Month, Be Prepared

Many leagues are organizing and conducting player and volunteer registration with tryouts and the playerdraft soon to follow. The Local League Resource Guide and Little League University offer several items that can help your league efficiently and effectively market and manage these critical league operations.

NEW! National Criminal Background Checks Now Mandatory

New for the 2017 season, Little League Regulation I (c) 9 has been revised to state that all leagues in the United States are required to conduct background checks that utilize First Advantage Screening Solutions, or another provider that is comparable to First Advantage in accessing background check records for sex offender registry data and criminal records. For those leagues that have satisfied this regulation in past seasons by utilizing First Advantage, there are not additional expectations, since the First Advantage background check currently meets that standard.

Tax Exempt Status Reminder

It is the local league’s responsibility to submit a federal tax return to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Any non-profit organization that does not file the proper 990 Form with the IRS for three consecutive years automatically loses its federal tax exemption resulting in the organization's income becoming taxable and contributors being unable to report their contributions as tax deductions. This year's filing deadline is February 15, 2017. Please include the League I.D. Number and Employer Identification Number (E.I.N.) on the tax return along with the correct name and address of the current League President. Each separately chartered league, even if operated by the same board, is required to have its own E.I.N. and file a separate return. Forms and instructions are available on the IRS website The address where the tax return should be filed is: Internal Revenue Service Center -- Ogden, Utah 84201-0027.

It is also the responsibility of each league to furnish Little League Baseball® Incorporated with a copy of your league's annual financial report. This is a requirement of any league enrolled under the Little League Federal Group Tax Exemption and 501(c)(3) organizational status. There is a sample financial statementin the Little League resource guide and on the Little League website. Please be sure your League I.D. Number is noted on the financial statement. If you haven't already done so, please forward a copy of your league's financial statement via email ( or mail to:

Wednesday, June 24


If a tournament team has thirteen (13) or more eligible players in uniform at a game time, then every player on a team roster shall participate in each game for a minimum one (1) at bat. If a tournament has twelve (12) or fewer eligible players in uniform at a game, then every player on a team roster shall participate in each game for a minimum of six (6) consecutive defensive outs and bat at least one (1) time. 
a.Managers are responsible for fulfilling the mandatory play requirements.
b.There is no exception to this rule unless the game is shortened for any reason.  NOTE: A game is not considered shortened if the home team does not complete the offensive half of the sixth or seventh inning (or any extra inning) due to winning the game.
Tony does this make it clear?

10.SUBSTITUTIONS/RE-ENTRY: This tournament rule replaces regular season Rule 3.03 (re-entry) for all levels of tournament play.
a.If illness, injury or the ejection of a player prevents a team from fielding nine (9) players, a player previously used in the lineup may be inserted, but only if there are no other eligible substitutes available.      The opposing team manager shall select the player to re-enter the lineup. A player ejected from the game is not eligible for re-entry.
b.     Any player who has been removed for a substitute may re-enter the game in the SAME position in the batting order.
c.    A substitute entering the game for the first time may not be removed prior to completion of her/his mandatory play requirements.
d       For the purposes of this rule, “six (6) consecutive defensive outs” is defined as: A player enters the field in one of the nine defensive positions when his/her team is on defense and occupies such position while six consecutive outs are made; “bat at least one (1) time” is defined as: A player enters the batters box with no count and completes that time at bat by being put out or by reaching base safely.

Recap for 12 players or less:
A starter can come out before fulfilling the mandatory play requirements but must fulfill it at some point during the game. 1 at bat and 6 consecutive outs. (Not 3 defensive outs early and 3 defensive outs later upon returning.)
