Frequently Asked Questions

How are player ages determined?
Little League International specifies the age cutoffs for Baseball and Softball annually, and will publish it on their website along with an online calculator.
Softball ages are determined as of Dec. 31 of the year prior to the Spring season in which they will be playing. For example, in 2020, the age is as of Dec. 31, 2019.
Baseball ages are determined as of Aug. 31 of the year in which they are playing. For example, in 2020, the age is as of Aug. 31, 2020.

Children in our league are not placed in divisions based on grade level.

When do teams practice and how often per week?
For Spring, your child's team manager will provide you with information on practice dates, times, and locations. Fields for spring are typically available by late March, depending on the winter snowfall. Before the spring season opens in mid-April, teams typically practice one weeknight and once on the weekend based on a practice schedule set when teams are formed/ drafted. Once spring games begin, practice dates and times will vary by team and field availability. 

Summer All-Star teams will be notified by their team manager and could practice as often as 7 days per week.

Fall Ball teams will be notified by their team manager.

When do games begin and how many per week?

Spring games generally begin in mid-April, although softball may start earlier. Teams typically play at least 2 games on weeknights and 1 game on the weekend, and the days and times can vary week to week. Game schedules are posted online before Opening Night in April. Softball schedules are subject to change and all times should be confirmed with your team manager and/or the VP of Softball.

Summer All-Star teams will be notified by their team manager and could have multiple games in a week and in a row.

Fall Ball teams will be notified by their team manager.

How can I fulfill my family work bond?
Each spring, all families are required to submit a separate check (not available to pay online) for the family work bond. This check will be returned to you or destroyed once one adult member of your family fulfills one of the following tasks:
- an approved, official Team Manager, Coach or Assistant Coach (you will be notified by the PTWLL Player Agent if you are one)
- work at least 3 hours at Field Cleanup (March or April, at either the baseball or softball complex - you must sign in and out to get credit)
- work one, 3-hour shift in the refreshment stand at the baseball complex (this applies to baseball and softball)

Failure to fulfill one of the work bond tasks will result in a forfeit of the work bond and your check will be cashed in June.
Note - families who has a player on a summer All-Star team will also be required to spend time in the refreshment stand at each home all-star game, as coordinated by your team manager. There is no work bond requirement for Fall Ball.
