LEAGUE AGE DETERMINATION

Baseball and Softball: CLICK HERE to go to the official Little League age calculator 

 

SOFTBALL - It's simple for softball! The player's age as of December 31 (prior to season of play)  is used to determine the League Age.  Click here to view the 2018 age chart for softball

 

BASEBALL -  It's complicated for baseball. Click here to view the 2018 age chart for Baseball

In 2016 there were changes made to the BASEBALL age cut off; here are the details

For BASEBALL players born on or before April 30, 2005 the April 30 age determination date was used in 2017. The August 31 cut off will be used for these players starting with the 2018 season.

For BASEBALL players born between May 1, 2005 and August 31, 2005 the April 30 age determination date is used in 2017 and 2018 (so that they can play in Major in 2018).

The August 31 cut off will be used for this group of players starting with the 2019 season (this group of players will "skip" their 13 year old season, and play as 14 year olds in 2019).

For BASEBALL Players born on or after September 1, 2005 the August 31 age determination date is used for all seasons.
