2021 Spring Baseball Registration

MALL Spring 2021 Baseball 

Opening Day Saturday March 6th!

Registration for MALL’s Spring 2021 baseball season is now open by visiting either of the following addresses:

www.mallball.net or www.mallball.org

On-line registration is the best way to get your child signed up.  If you did not register with us in 2017 or 2018, you will need to set-up a new User ID to get started.   After you’ve logged-in using your User ID, you can click the blue “My Account” button at the top right of the webpage. From there you will see the Eligible Divisions for your player(s).

If you have any questions, there are a number of discussion points related to registration on the website under FAQs.

Please see the separate discussion at the end of this email and on the website concerning Little League’s new bat rules effective 2018.  Short version…you will need a new bat if your current one was purchased before 2018.  The old ones will not be allowed.  

Little League Baseball for boys and girls league age 4 and up. Click here to find out your child's Little League Baseball age.

We play instructional divisions for younger children and competitive divisions for older ones.  All ages listed below are generally based on the child’s age as of 8/31/2021.  

Instructional Divisions: 

  -Tee Ball:  Purely instructional and fun for ages 4-6.  Most returning age 6 should play up in Coach Pitch.  
  -Coach Pitch: instructional, but more structured.  Mainly for ages 6-8.  Most age 8 should play up in beginner Kid Pitch.  

Competitive Divisions (Kid Pitch): 
  
  -Minor American: Beginner kid pitch, supplemented by a limited amount of coach pitching.  This division is mainly for ages 8-9.  
  -Minor National: Kid pitch mainly for ages 10-11.
  -Intermediates: Open bases, mainly for ages 12-13.

In chart form, the following divisions will be played this spring:

 Teams will be formed in the instructional T-Ball and Machine Pitch divisions based upon friend requests, coach requests, common schools and neighborhoods.  Teams will be formed in all competitive (kid pitch) leagues based on skill assessments and a draft by the team managers (see below). 

Opening Day Ceremony and Games are planned for Saturday March 6, 2021. 

Skill Assessments for Competitive Divisions are scheduled for mid-February as follows:

  • Intermediates: Monday 2/08/2021 at 6:30PM 
  • Minor National: Tuesday 2/09/2021  at 6:30PM 
  • Minor American: Wednesday 2/10/2021 at 6:30PM
  • General (for those unable to make their day): Saturday 2/13/2021 at 9:30AM
  • ALL DATES ARE TENTATIVE and may change based on weather or registration numbers

 MALL requires all players in the kid pitch divisions to participate in skill assessment evaluations. Player baseball skills will be evaluated by team managers and league representatives in order to be placed in the proper division and subsequently drafted by a team.     We will allow kids to play up-or-down a division based upon their skill assessments.  For example, Age 9 is slotted to the Minor American division, but may be allowed in the Minor National division if they assess high enough that the division commissioner approves it.  Older players may be allowed to “play down” a division under a similar scenario.  This is reflected parenthetically in the above age groups. Please use the "Special Requests" section of the on-line registration if you want your child to play in a division other than the ones for which he has been slotted.  

 If you cannot show up on your assigned date, please plan to attend the "General" assessment planned for Saturday 2/13/2021.  As a last resort, please attend any ONE of the dates if none of the others will work.  Assessments should take approximately 90 minutes.  We may revise the schedule based on the weather forecast as that week approaches.  Any schedule changes will be emailed and posted on the  http://www.mallball.net/ home page.  

 NEW LITTLE LEAGUE BAT RULES STARTING IN 2018

Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com

All bats will be stamped “USABat”.  Please note that most other baseball organizations are moving to this new standard as well.
