Age Determination
Your ball player's "league age" is determined by the official Little League Baseball Age Chart and Softball Age Chart. The dates for baseball and softball are different as the determination date for baseball is the actual age of a player as of August 31st of the current year. For softball it is January 1st of the current year. The 'league age" helps determine which division your ball player will be in - Minors or Majors. For the official Little League Age Calculator and more information please visit the official Little League's website.
