FOR BASEBALL DIVISIONS ONLY 

In April, 2014 the International Congress approved the new league age determination amendment for Little League Baseball®.  To implement the new amendment, it was decided to include a three-year waiting period to execute the change, starting in 2018. Questions from the field were raised about the impact the change would have on players that were currently league age 8 under the traditional system.  Using feedback from Little League® parents through our District Administrators, the Little League International Board of Directors adjusted the April-approved implementation strategy in order to modify the impact on all of our minor and major division players. The adjustment also allows for an easier transition for players in the early years of Little League participation. 

As a result of this recent adjustment to the implementation strategy, effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 4-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in a local Little League program and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the reminder of their Little League Baseball career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure.

As stated, with this implementation strategy adjustment the impact on our players will be reduced, with the exception of a marginal impact on players currently participating in the very early stages of their Little League career. Furthermore, our continued focus on fun, fitness and fundamentals at the Tee Ball Division will assist local leagues as they look to provide a smooth transition to the Coach/Machine Pitch divisions of play while still developing a passion for the game as well as focusing on skill development. 

This change ensures that no player will lose a year of participation in the Little League Majors Division that culminates with the annual Little League Baseball World Series in South Williamsport, Pa.

What a great night for Madera National League last night! Our AAA Minors Champions Lee's Concrete started off the evening victorious in a very tightly contested match against Massetti Appliance. In the end our bats prevailed and the boys were able to celebrate a great win! 
In the second event of the night, the match up of American Leagues Majors division Lee's Concrete ( seems like this sponsor is having some luck this season ) against the National League Majors division Kiwanis. Kiwanis wasted little time putting a run up in their half of the first inning, but Lee's didn't take long to answer with a great home run to put them up 4-1. There was a rarely seen triple play performed by Kiwanis, just when Lee's was setup to strike again. The game went back and forth and was decided by the boys on the field, who all fought with everything they had. Kiwanis put an exclamation on their end of the season run with a great City Championship to add to their accomplishments.
All four of these teams will play Tuesday in the District Tournament of Champions (TOC) Tournament. This is a single elimination tournament to find the best team from all nine of the league's in District 10. You can follow their progress by following the attached link to the District website, as well as stay in touch with our facebook page for progress on MNLL's Lee's, and Kiwanis.
