Fall Ball 2018 now OPEN - Registration Closes August 6th
What is Fall Ball?
Fall Ball is an
instructional program that emphasizes learning and developing skills in a less
competitive environment than Spring baseball. Players are encouraged to sharpen
their skills, try new positions, and have fun! Open to players of Little League
ages 5-12, Fall Ball is organized like Spring Little League with divisions Farm
thru Majors. If your child is ready to move up to the next division in Spring,
Fall Ball is a great way to prepare. Fall Ball is also great for players who
want to stay in the same division and can't wait until Spring to play ball!
There is also a Pioneer division with emphasis on skills development
and possible scrimmages. If there are enough manager volunteers and players,
then teams may be formed and games will be played. If we do not have enough
volunteers, then the program will be run clinic style with an emphasis on skill
Little League is an all volunteer program. The Fall Ball
program is contingent on the number of managers and coaches that volunteer for
the program and the number of registrants. We're looking for managers, coaches,
and team administrators. If you can volunteer, please contact
