Junior & Senior Baseball

Congratulations, your son has just completed his eighth season of Little League Baseball. Beginning at league age 5 in T-Ball and concluding with his 12 year old season in majors on the 60' diamond. So now what?

As you evaluate your next opportunity in Youth Baseball consider that you DO NOT have to leave Little league to continue your baseball experience. Instead, Little League offers the following two additional levels of play:

  • Junior Baseball ages 13 &14 years old
  • Senior Baseball ages 15 & 16 years old

Consider the benefits of playing baseball within the Little League Program:

  • Competition
  • Community
  • Affordability
  • Flexibility

Playing on the 90' diamond brings many different aspects of the game into play - it's REAL Baseball!

  • Leading off
  • Hit & Run plays
  • Squeeze plays
  • Pick-off Plays
  • Designated Hitters
 

This sounds great, but once my son is in high school won't this conflict with High School games? Little League is a flexible program that allows players to participate on both High School and Little League teams. Further, participation in high school games counts toward eligibility for All Stars so your son will not be penalized or prohibited from competing in All Stars while participating on a high school team. Most High School baseball games are played in the afternoon shortly after school. Little League games are played in the evenings with the earliest start time around 5:00 PM. Since our games are played mostly on High School fields, those games must be done before our teams begin. finally, Little League games at the Junior and Senior level do not begin until later March which is nearly the half-way point of High School Baseball. Big league Baseball does not begin play until May, so your son's High School ball will not conflict with Little League at all in this case.

What is the cost to play? Little League is an affordable program. Tulalip Little League charges one fee which encompasses all the costs of uniforms, field rentals, etc. depending on the level of play. Fees include:

Do you offer a Fall program? A fall program, at the District level, may be available depending on interest from other leagues. Junior Baseball players would be eligible. Typically in the fall program, teams compete in an approximate 20 game schedule among teams from within Snohomish County beginning after Labor Day concluding in October. This presents a great opportunity for players advancing from the 60' diamond to get orientated to the larger playing field. It is also flexible with expanded rosters allowing players to participate in multiple sports.

My son is being recruited for a Select Baseball Team. How do I chose? Since its founding, Little League has remained a community-based program that is operated by local volunteers and supported by the neighborhoods it serves. "Playing Little League has always been about developing social skills and understanding the values of leadership, personal accountability and teamwork," Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. "Every child who plays Little League wants to have fun, while we as an organization want to make the program practical and affordable for all of our leagues." Other youth baseball and softball organizations have gained favor in recent years, despite the cost and lack of a governing body or safety oversight for players. Travel ball or select club teams charge parents exorbitant amounts of money under the guise that they offer a better, more competitive brand of baseball or softball. Further, they lack the oversight to ensure the safety of the players. Little League is the only Youth Baseball Organization to employ a pitch count limit to ensure the safety of young players arms.

I want my son to get involved now. How may I register? Players interested in the Junior or Senior levels may begin to registr on-line in December.

I still have questions, who may I call? Please email us at marlin@tulalipll.org and we will contact you promptly.
