Frequently Asked Questions

Who can play?

Any child ages 4 to 12 years of age.

Can my child play if he has never played baseball before?

Yes.  Fall Ball is designed to help players that have never played before by giving them more instruction time in a relaxed atmosphere.

How is the player’s age determined?

A player’s age for a given season is their age on April 30 of the following year.  We play in the Fall and we want to know how old will your player be next April 30.  The intent is for players to play in the league level they are age appropriate for the following Spring.

Example:  Your child is 6 during the Fall but will turn 7 by April 30 the following Spring, he/she will play Coach Pitch in Fallball.

Example: Your child is 10 during the Fall but will turn 11 by April 30 the following Spring, he/she will play Majors in Fallball.
