2023 Spring Season FAQ

Q. I heard the league is no longer split by East and West boundaries.  Is this true?

A. Yes and no is the answer.  For ITB through Coach Pitch (non all star divisions), the league will continue to be split by our prior boundaries of East and West.  (see boundary map here).  

For Pee Wee divisions and up, the league is no longer split East/West.  Players in this age group are now in a common pool of players that will be available to draft for all teams regardless of what side of the boundary they reside upon.  

Q.  Can registration end earlier than December 31st?

A. THE ANSWER IS YES!  In order to make the appropriate amount of teams based on registration numbers and the amount of coaches available, it is possible that registration COULD close before December 31.  PLL encourages members to register as early as possible to avoid missing this deadline.

Q.  How will my player be assigned to a team?

A. For the Spring 2023 and all Spring seasons, players are required to attend one (1) of two (2) skill evaluations (tryouts).  After tryouts, the managers/coaches will meet and draft the teams.  Managers/coaches will utilize their assessments of player's skills to draft the player in what they deem to be the appropriate division based on their evaluation.  Certain league ages can be rostered in multiple divisions, and that is why the evaluations are extremely important to ensure players are placed in the best position for success in the Spring.  The player will get selected where he/she will have the greatest chance for success and a safe and enjoyable baseball season.
