Divisions

MSLL offers co-ed baseball divisions for players ages 5 to 16. Players aged 17-19 may play in our affiliate Babe Ruth program.

Players in our Entry Level divisions are played by grade as follows:

  • Pre-Kindergaren: Blastball
  • Kindergarten: Tee Ball
  • Grade 1: Rookie Junior
  • Grade 2: Rookie Senior

Starting in the Minors Divisions, players are placed in the appropriate division according to their “baseball age” and skill level using assessments/tryouts.

Baseball age is determined by Little League International which uses September 1 to August 31 as the determination date for baseball age. You can verify your player’s baseball age using this Little League table.

The following table shows the recommended player division by baseball age.
