In April 2014, Little League International approved the new league age determination amendment for Little League Baseball® (league age would be based on December 31 instead of April 30).
In November, 2015, Little League International adjusted the April-approved implementation strategy (originally staring in 2018) in order to modify the impact on all of our minor and major division players. The adjustment also allows for an easier transition for players in the early years of Little League participation.
As a result of this recent adjustment to the implementation strategy, effective immediately, any player born between January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009 and will turn the age of 6 during the 2015 calendar year will now be eligible to participate in a New City Little League Tee ball division and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the remainder of their Little League Baseball career.
Any player born on or after January 1, 2006 will now use the new age determination date of December 31 for the remainder of their Little League Baseball career as well.
The league will be sending additional information in the next few weeks to those players directly affected by this age change.
The next Board Meeting will be held soon at Merry Maids in New City (across from North HS). Please check back soon!
All are welcome to attend!
