New Little League Baseball Age for 2015
New Little League Baseball Age for 2015
At the Little League International Congress held in April 2014, a new age determination date for Little League Baseball of December 31 was approved, starting with the 2018 Little League season. A transition plan was approved by the Little League International Board of Directors on November 14, 2014, changing the Little League baseball age determination date for the 2015 season. For the 2015 season, players born in 2006 and after will have an age determination date of December 31, 2015. The age determination date for players born in 2005 and before will remain April 30, 2015.
Impact on Kensico Little League
Anyone who turns four in 2015 is now eligible to play. The change will move some players up one division in the Minor Leagues. To determine which division your child will be placed in simply use the chart below. Little League Baseball Age is how old a child will be as of December 31, 2015. The transition has been placed in the Minors division to lessen the impact and to make sure no child loses a year of Majors. There is no impact to Softball or Majors and above Baseball.
