Frequently Asked QuestionsUpdated Thursday March 1, 2018 by Moriches Bay Little League.
Q: What league division should my child be playing in?
A: The Little League Age Chart (see "Downloadable Forms & Files" to the left) provides the determination of baseball / softball age but basically here are the age ranges for the leagues:
Baseball: T-Ball- 5-6 years old AA- 7 & 8 years old AAA- 9 & 10 Majors- 11 &12 years old
Softball: Minors 6-9 years old Majors- 9-12 years old
Q: Can my son/ daughter play on the same team as their friends?
A: In the younger age categories we do our best to accomodate all requests. To keep competitive balance, the players of Baseball AAA/Majors and Softball Majors will tryout and a draft will take place to create teams.
Q: My kids are similar in age. Will they play together?
A: Siblings of similar age, playing in the same division, will play on the same team (request it).
Q: What days are the games and practices?
A: Every effort is made in the younger divisions to keep a set weekly game schedule; however, weather can seriously impact the scheduling. A practice schedule will be set by our volunteer coaches. Majors and AAA divisions will have a flexible Monday-Friday game schedule. The AA division will play games on Mondays/Wednesdays and the Teeball division will play their games on Tuesdays/Thursdays.
Q: Are there games on weekends?
A: In the younger divisions very few if any games are played on weekends. We have a special fundraiser event called "Day at the Ballpark" each year on a Saturday in May which will be promoted for all to attend.
Q: Can my 4-year-old play t-ball?
A: Yes, players born on or before August 31st are eligible to play tee ball.
