TRYOUTS AND LEAGUE PLACEMENTS

Tryouts will be rescheduled for February or March of 2018. 

Please note the following changes regarding league placements which will be in effect for the 2018 season:

Holden Baseball is pleased to announce new changes to our player placement guidelines, beginning with the Spring 2018 baseball season. These changes reflect our consideration of several important factors in the player placement process, including:

  • The modifications to player age rules made by Little League Baseball, Inc.
  • Constructive feedback from Holden families who have players in the league
  • Current player school grade considerations 
  • Effective player development that allows for enjoyment of the game at each level
  • Player tryout scores at Holden Baseball tryouts
  • Coach evaluation scores of all players from the prior baseball season

It is important to understand the age cutoff guidelines set by Little League Baseball: all players from T-Ball through Little League Majors now follow an August 31st age cutoff to determine their "Little League Age". For example, a player registered for Spring baseball who is currently 8 years old, but will turn 9 on August 3rd of 2018, would be considered "LL-9". A player who is currently 8 years old, but will turn 9 on September 20th of 2018, would be considered "LL-8".

 

Changes to placement levels:

  • AA Level consists of LL-8 and LL-9 players. All players who are LL-9 will automatically be assigned to the AA level (or higher). In addition, all players who are in 3rd grade in school will automatically be assigned to the AA level (or higher).
  • AAA Level consists of LL-8, LL-9, and LL-10 players. Players who are LL-8 or LL-9 may be selected for this level based on coach feedback from the previous season, and player tryout scores. All players who are LL-10 will automatically be assigned to the AAA level (or higher). In addition, all players who are in 4th grade in school will automatically be assigned to the AAA level (or higher).    
  • LL-Minors Level consists of LL-9, LL-10, and LL-11 players. Players who are LL-9 or LL-10 may be selected for this level based on coach feedback from the previous season, and player tryout scores. All players who are LL-11 will automatically be assigned to the LL-Minors level (or higher). In addition, all players who are in 5th grade in school will automatically be assigned to the LL-Minors level (or higher).   
  • LL-Majors Level consists of LL-10, LL-11, and LL-12 players. Players who are LL-10 or LL-11 may be selected for this level based on coach feedback from the previous season, and player tryout scores. All players who are LL-12 will automatically be assigned to the LL-Majors level. In addition, all players who are in 6th grade in school will automatically be assigned to the LL-Majors level.
