What determines the age groupings for baseball?

Ages for baseball and their league assignment are determined by their age on April 30 of the current year and/or their grade in school. A player may "play up" a league based on their age provided that they are in the grade commonly associated with the next age group.  Please contact [email protected] if your player falls into this particular situation to assist with registration.

Age and grade cutoffs can be found on our website under the Registration Info tab
