Simsbury Little League - Fall Baseball Information
Our SLL mission statement is very much in line with Little League International philosophy of promoting, developing, and supervising the interest of those who will participate in Little League Baseball. Our town has enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with surrounding town’s Little League programs who regularly send us outstanding athletes to participate in our Fall Ball Program. Our Fall Baseball program is designed to provide each player the opportunity to improve their baseball skills in a safe environment that also helps to prepare each of these athletes for the next level of competition.
SLL is committed to continuing the effort of exploring all options as a way to better prepare each players for their upcoming Spring Season. With this structure, we believe our AAA and Majors Divisions will enable each player to work on their game, in a safe, yet still competitive environment, that will allow each player to develop at their own pace. The AA Division will focus on baseball skill, baseball knowledge and overall player development. This Division will attempt to better prepare our next generation of baseball players and allow them to gain skills through clinics, practices and games.
If you wish to volunteer as a manager or coach for fall ball you must complete a volunteer application. Applications that are filled out for the spring season are still valid for the fall season. The volunteer application can be found on the Volunteer tab on SLL home page.
Fall season will be based on Spring 2023 Baseball Age
Baseball age can be determined using the Age Chart found on the Documents Tab. We will not make any exceptions to the age chart, and players must play in the specified division below for their age.
Baseball Ages 8-9: DOB 9/1/2013-8/31/2015
ALL 8 yr olds and most 9 yr olds will be placed in this division.
Baseball Ages 9-11: DOB 9/1/2011-8/31/2014
Any 9 year old who will be attending evaluations for AAA in the Spring 2023 season should register for this division.
ALL 10 yr olds will be placed in this division.
Any 11 yr old who does NOT plan to be evaluated for majors in the Spring should register for this division.
Baseball Ages 11-12: DOB 9/1/2010-8/31/2012
Any 11 yr old who will be attending evaluations for Majors in the Spring 2023 season should register for this division.
ALL 12 yr olds will be placed in this division.
Registering for a division that your player will have to be evaluated for in the spring, does not guarantee that division for the spring.
All players will have to attend evaluations to be considered for playing up in the Spring Season.
Babe Ruth Baseball (Ages 13)
Players who are baseball age 13 should register for the Babe Ruth League. This is a separate organization (http://simsburybaberuth.com/) and the registration is not through Simsbury Little League. Babe Ruth is structured similar to SLL and is a recreational league where everyone who registers makes a team. Babe Ruth has a developmental program to get kids used to the larger field in the fall, so it is most benefical for kids to move up at this time so that they are ready for the spring season.
