Age Determination - Little League

Little League Age Determination 

What You Need To Know

For Baseball Divisions Only

 

In April 2014, Little League International amended the age determination date from April 1st to December 31st.  Since that time there has been much feedback regarding this change.  In August 2015, the age determination date was again amended and was moved to August 31.

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.  All other children participating in Little League Baseball will continue to follow the implementation strategy established in August 2015.

 

Why the change?

In 2011, Little League International (Williamsport, PA) conducted very detailed participation research. As a result of that research, they learned that parents, players, and volunteers wanted to see Little League become, as a whole, a younger program, and give children an easier way to play Little League with their classmates.

Since the research concluded, Little League revamped its Tee Ball program and changed its residency requirements to allow children to play in the league where their school is located.

Adjusting the Age Determination Date was done with the goal of making Little League younger. And, by making the cutoff date August 31, it makes the Majors Division, truly a 12 and under program – ensuring that no child playing Majors Division will turn 13 years old at any point during their final season in that division.

 

For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The August 31 age determination date will be effective.

Players born between May 1, 2005 and August 31, 2005 will use the April 30 age determination date for the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

Tommy Tanski Memorial Scholarships

Tommy Tanski
Tommy Tanski Memorial Scholarships


Each year Simsbury Little League offers four $1500 scholarships to current High School seniors.  These scholarships are offered to seniors who participated in either the baseball or softball Little League program here in Simsbury.  The scholarships are given in memory of Tommy Tanski, who was a Simsbury High School junior, and a former Little League player, but passed away in a car accident in 2011.  

Tommy Tanski played Little League from 1999-2005 and during that time played for two district All Star Teams. He also played for the Strikers soccer team and played soccer in High School.  Tommy was a tremendous teammate and understood that his contribution was more about the team than any one individual.  

For many, the time playing Simsbury Little League baseball or softball is something to be cherished for years to come.  It is when friendships are formed, character is built and memories are made. During the registration process, please consider donating towards this scholarship fund and helping SLL continue to provide them in memory of Tommy Tanski.

To make a direct donation to this fund, please click HERE.

Thank-you!

SLL & Youth Umpires

Simsbury Little League

Youth Umpires

Simsbury Little League's baseball and softball games are generally umpired by youth umpires.  We wanted to take this opportunity to explain to all our families the expectations we have regarding interactions with umpires. Regardless of the umpire’s age the SLL policy is that all judgment calls stand and managers, coaches and spectators are not to argue or attempt to influence these calls.  This includes any sort of gestures or sounds of disagreement.  Simply put, please support letting the umpires umpire.

All umpires will make mistakes regardless of their skill level and experience.  With 80+ umpires in the program it is an on-going task to keep up with training needs.  Please remember that our youth umpires are trying their best and are generally out there without anyone cheering them on in the stands or giving them those words of encouragement when mistakes are made.  They too are developing their game and we as a league have adopted a zero-tolerance policy to make sure there is an appropriate atmosphere for everyone involved in games at Memorial Fields.

In 2012, our League President at the time, Tom Benneche, wrote a letter to the SLL Community entitled "They Are All Our Kids!".  Below is a link to this letter as it embodies SLL's expectations regarding youth umpires.  

They Are All Our Kids! 
(May 15, 2012)


 
 

Below is a summary of our expectations and policies regarding our umpires:


The only adult who may approach a youth umpire with a question is the manager of the team.


No assistant coaches may have a discussion with a youth umpire during the game.


No one should “coach” the umpire during the game or give them “friendly tips”.  This includes coaches and/or spectators.


Assistant coaches and managers may not guide or influence judgment calls.  

Coaches and spectators should not yell out “strike” or “ball” before the umpire even has a chance to make their call.  Please let the umpires call the game without any assistance.


Thank-you in advance for adhering to our policies and remembering that

the youth Umpires Are Our Kids!
