Fall Ball age determination

Since Fall Ball has a developmental focus, players are placed into Fall Ball leagues based upon what their Little League age will be for the next spring/summer season.  WMLL adheres to the “Age Determination Date” requirements established by Little League, Inc.  These requirements are different for baseball & softball.

Baseball: A player’s age as of August 31, 2019 will be that player’s Little League age for the 2019 spring/summer season & is thus that player’s age for the 2018 Fall Ball season.
Note: Little League, Inc. changed the age determination date for baseball from April 30 to August 31.  The change was deferred until 2019 for players born between May 1 & August 31, 2005.

Softball: A player’s age as of December 31, 2018 will be that player’s Little League age for the 2019 spring/summer season & is thus that player’s age for the 2018 Fall Ball season.
