SMLL Fall 2017 Baseball 

Season:

Practices will begin around August 6-13.  The season will consist of 8 games played on Sundays, beginning Sunday, September 10.  8u and 10u baseball should expect one practice on a weekday and one on Sunday until games begin and one workday practice continuing until the season ends or daylight limits practice opportunities.  12u and 14u will follow the same schedule, except that two practices on a weekday and one on a Sunday will be held. 

Uniforms:

Players are expected to provide their own gray baseball pants, black belt, and black socks.  SMLL will provide a hat.  A jersey will be rented from SMLL, with a $50 deposit check due upon receipt that will be returned when the jersey is returned in proper condition.

Age Requirements:

Fall baseball is intended to get players ready for the 2017 spring season.  Accordingly, players participate based on their age for the 2017 spring season.  This year, SMLL will follow the fall league age cutoffs, which is your child’s age as of this coming May 1, 2018.  Since Little League has converted to a September 1 to August 31 calendar to determine age, any player born between May 1 and August 3e1 that wishes to “play up” may be permitted.  Email   if your child would like to play up. 

Each year, parents and coaches “note”, i.e complain, that their kid is just say “8” during the fall and playing against older kids that are 9 and 10 year olds.  This is NOT the case.  All the teams in the fall leagues use the ages for their players for the upcoming spring, i.e, their age as of May 1, 2018.

South Maryland Little League has at the top of its mission the inclusion of ALL willing participants in spring Little League baseball.  Little League does not turn away any player, no matter their experience or current baseball skills, at any age up to 12.  Fall baseball is a bit different in nature.  Managing rosters is more difficult than spring Little League since there are far fewer teams and SMLL intends to limit roster sizes to 12 or 13.  Therefore, as registration unfolds, there may be the need for assessments to fit the player pool into the available team sizes.  Information concerning roster sizes and assessments will be provided in early August.  We remain committed to providing every willing participant a place to play baseball and fortunately managed to do so last fall (and the two falls before that), but can’t predict the future until registration is underway.
