Little League International recently implemented a change in the determination of baseball age for children born on or after January 1, 2006. Beginning with the spring 2015 season, baseball age for this group will be determined based on the age as of the birthday during the calendar year. This rule replaces the April 30 age determination previously used.
Action Required for 2015
This change may impact children registering for our younger Little League divisions (AAA, AA and A divisions) for the Spring 2015 season. The change does not impact children who are eligible for our Major Little League or Babe Ruth divisions.
Due to the age change, some children are now considered baseball age “9” instead of baseball age “8” and will need to attend an evaluation in order to be eligible for our AAA baseball division (ages 9 to 11). Impacted players are born between May 1, 2006 and December 31, 2006.
We will be holding a special evaluation on Saturday, March 7 at 4:00 PM at In the Batter’s Box in Hudson (312 Main St Hudson) for AAA-eligible players.
If you are impacted by the rule change and/or registered for Spring 2015 after our fall evaluations and are otherwise now eligible for the AAA division, you will be contacted.
Softball Registration is now open for our Winter Clinics (Pitching and All Skills) and the Spring 2015 season. Please click on the registration button to sign up. For more information please contact Kair Tucker at
