In August 2015 Little League Baseball approved a new league age determination amendment. This change replaces the age determination rule used in the 2015 season.

The new cutoff date for determining a player's league age is now August 31, not December 31.

There are certain exceptions to the rule, as explained below.

For players born on or before April 30, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born between May 1, 2005 and August 31, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2019 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016, 2017, 2018 season, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The August 31 age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.

In essence, all players who were league age 10 or older in 2015 under the traditional system will be unaffected by the change. Those players who were league age 8 or younger in 2015 and whom would have lost one year of baseball eligibility will regain that year.

Implementation

The new rules are effective immediately.
