Little League Baseball® to Begin Utilization of August 31 Age Determination Date for the 2018 Season; Children Born Between May 1 and August 31, 2005 to be Grandfathered as 12-Year-Olds For 2018 Season.
Beginning with the 2017 Little League regular season, Regulation I and Regulation IV now state that any local league may allow a player to be on the roster of two teams during the same Little League regular season, provided the player is age-eligible to participate at the Major Division or above, and who is otherwise eligible under all conditions.
A player who is currently age-eligible to playing the Little League Baseball Major Division, may play Intermediate (50/70) baseball or Junior Division baseball, but would not be permitted to play in Senior Division baseball due to league-age.
It’s important to note that players may only be selected to one Tournament team. The regulations cannot be modified by the local league’s Board of Directors, but the choice to utilize the dual rostering option remains with the local league.
