After several requests from local Little League districts, the Little League Board of Directors voted in favor to adjust the age determination charts for baseball players. This allows players to be placed in divisions that suit their skill level and not just their age group. It also ensures that players who were league age 7 for the 2014 season and are now league age 9 for the 2015 season, and have the ability, to transition to the next division. This new rule affects other age groups too. Click here for more information.
