Question: What division should my child be playing in?

  • The Little League Age Chart (see "Helpful Links") provides the determination of baseball / softball age (“league age”).

  • Depending on the age, a player may be given the option to choose between two divisions, but basically here are the general age and grade ranges as it pertains to the divisions:
  • T-Ball - Baseball: Pre-K & Kindergarten (4-6 years old)  – must be at least 4 years old by Aug. 31st
  • Rookies - Baseball (Coach pitch): 1st & 2nd grade (6-8 years old)                  
  • Minors - Baseball: 3rd & 4th grade (8-10 years old) 
  • Majors - Baseball: 5th & 6th grade, and some 7th grade (10-12 years old)

 

  • T-Ball - Girls Softball: 4-5 years old (Pre-K and Kindergarten)
  • Rookies - Girls Softball (Coach Pitch): 6-7 years old (1st and 2nd grade)
  • Minors - Girls Softball: 8-9 years old (3rd and 4th grade)

  • Majors - Girls Softball: 10-12 years old (5th, 6th and some 7th grade)

 

  • A baseball player’s last year in Little League is when he turns 12 before August 31st. If a player turns 12 from September-December, he/she may play baseball the following year. 
  • Some 2nd graders may be eligible for Minors, subject to attending Minors player evaluations and receiving Board approval.
  • Some 4th graders may be eligible for Majors, subject to attending Majors player evaluations and receiving Board approval.

  • Email [email protected] if you have questions.



Question: When does the season start/end?

  • Practices begin towards the end of March/beginning of April. This depends on the weather and the ability to get fields ready. Games begin approximately the third week in April and go to the middle of June.

 

 Question: Can my child be on the same team as their friends?

  • In the younger age categories we do our best to accommodate all requests.  When registering online, write a note in the "Special Requests/Comments" section to inform us of a coach or a friend you request your child to play on the same team with. 
  • To keep a competitive balance, the players of Minors and Majors baseball players attend an evaluation and a draft will take place to create teams.


Question: My kids are similar in age.  Will they play together?

  • Siblings of similar age, playing in the same division, will play on the same team (request it or write it in the comment section when registering online so we don't overlook it).


Question: When will I find out what team my child is on?

  • We normally have a coaches’ meeting in the middle of March. This is when the coaches receive their rosters and will start contacting the players on their teams.



Question: What equipment will my child need to play?

  •  The league provides uniforms, catcher’s gear, practice and game balls, team bats, and a few team helmets (it’s suggested your child have his/her own).
  • Players are required to have their own baseball/softball gloves.
  • Baseball and Softball Bats: If you would like to purchase a bat see the bat sizing guide on helpful links section of the website. Note that baseball and softball bats have to have the USA Stamp on it. Many bats will have multiple designations, other league require different designations. Be sure to take careful notice of this rule.
  • Baseball helmets are required (there are league helmets). We recommend purchasing a helmet for your child for health reasons. Please mark the helmet with the child's name.
  • Softball helmets with face masks are required (there are league helmets). We recommend purchasing a helmet for your child for health reasons. Please mark the helmet with the child's name.
  • Softball requires a fielder's mask. There are two sizes: Youth and Adult. Most of the kids are the Youth size. 6th Graders may require an Adult mask.
  • If a child wishes to wear cleats, they must be made of molded plastic, not metal.



Question:  What are the Uniform sizes?

  • Look under "Helpful Links" for Uniform Sizing Info. It's also available if you click here.

 

Question:  What days are practices and games on?

  • All practices (for all programs) are scheduled by the volunteer coaches based on their availability and field availability.
  • Majors and Minors baseball divisions will have a flexible Monday-Friday game schedule, perhaps with some games on Saturdays.  

 

Question: How do I know if a practice or game has been rained out?

  • Once the Board decides a game has been canceled due to bad weather, we will send out an email blast. We will also contact coaches and it is up to the coaches to contact their teams as well. Practices are left up to a coach’s discretion.


Question: How can I become a coach or assistant coach?

  • We are always in need of volunteer coaches, so thank you for considering! Any person over the age of 18 can apply. During player registration there will be an opportunity to choose a coaching position. Please fill out the required information on the registration portal. If a spouse or family member wishes to coach, simply "add" and "invite" them as well. They will receive an email to create an account of their own. Once the Board reviews all applications and determines how many teams are in each division, we will send an application to Little League International and they conduct a brief background check.


Question: How do I become a sponsor?

  • We have two types of sponsors. The first is a Team sponsor. Team sponsors receive a team banner (2’x4’) with your logo, which will travel with the team depending on which field they are playing on that day and be hung on the dugout fence; a team plaque for your business; and your company’s information on our website.
  • The second is a League sponsor. League sponsors receive a team banner (4’x6’) with your logo, which will be hung on the outfield fence at the Hampton West turf field throughout the season; a team plaque for your business; and your company’s information on our website.  
  • We are a federally recognized 501c(3) non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible.


Question: Can I pay by check, money order, or cash?

  • We can still accept checks or money orders, but there is an additional $25 administrative fee. If you choose to pay by check/money order, click “Check” as payment method during Checkout and send the total to EELL, P.O. Box 554, Westhampton, NY 11977. Your registration is not complete until payment is made. Sorry, no cash payments can be accepted.
