Southeast Portland Little League

Fall Ball

 

 

The Fall Ball program is designed for fun and additional opportunities to play to prepare for the next spring season and advancement to the next level of play. A perk of Fall Ball is that there are no league boundaries. Players from different ages or leagues can sign up and play together, and players from other programs are welcome to play and check out Little League.

 

 Subject to player interest and the availability of coaches, we will field teams in the following divisions:

 

 Baseball (boys and girls):

Tee Ball (League Age 4-5)

Rookie Division (League Age (5-6)

Farm Division (League Age 7-8)

Minor Division (League Age 8-10)

Major Division (League Age 9-11)

Intermediate Division (League Age 11-13)

 

Softball (girls):

Farm Division (League Age 6-8)

Minor/Major Division (League Age 8-11)

 

NOTE: A player’s “League Age” in Ball Ball is the same as it was the prior spring, regardless of a player’s actual age.

Team Formation:

We will create teams as many teams as we have enough coaches and players.  Where we can't fill a complete team, we will combine with another neighboring league.

Games:

Games are played on Sundays to avoid conflicts and allow players to participate in other sports. Games will start in the beginning of September (usually the first Sunday after Labor Day) and will run about eight weeks. Teams in the Major Division and above may play doubleheaders.

Locations:

Games will played at various fields within our district.

Practices:

Practices are up to each team's manager, but most will practice about one time per week. Coaches may provide additional opportunities to practice, but they should be considered optional.

Coaches and Umpires: Fall Ball is also a great time for parents considering the idea of managing (the head coach) and coaching. Current coaches often move up with their kids, which leaves openings that need to be filled. It is also a low-stress opportunity to gain experience as an umpire.
