Children Born Between May 1 and August 31, 2005 to be Grandfathered as

12-Year-Olds for 2018 Little League Baseball Season

 

In September 2015 Little League International announced an update to the implementation of the age determination which is effective Spring 2016. This impacts all players born on or after September 1, 2005.  For all players born on or before April 31, 2005 this age determination will be fully implemented by January 1, 2018. 

 

Effective as of November 13, 2015, a new implementation plan has been established, grandfathering children born between May 1 and August 31, 2005 as 12-year-olds for the 2018 season, using the April 30 age determination date. This four-month group of individuals will begin utilizing the new, August 31 age determination date beginning with the 2019 season.

 

More information on the implementation, along with the baseball age charts for the 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 seasons can be found on LittleLeague.org.

 

Please note that the new age cutoff is mandated by Little League International, and as a chartered league, Sunrise Little League (SLL) must abide by the new cutoff.
