League Q & A

Posted by Pasadena Southwest Little League on Jan 15 2014 at 02:10PM PST in Spring 2014

Question: Can I still signup for baseball this spring?

Answer: Teeball and AA (ages 5-8) are still wide open – contact League President David Mathias ( if you wish to register your player for Teeball or AA (ages 5-8). AAA (ages 9-11) is partially open, so please contact our League President as a few players could be added. Majors (primarily 11-12 year olds) is closed, but we are assembling a wait list…please contact the League President.

Question: My player was sick this week and missed tryouts — what do we do?

Answer: If you signed up for TeeBall, no need to tryout. But we need to make some general rating for most of the 6-10 year olds if possible for the AA and AAA Divisions. Please contact League President David Mathias regarding scheduling an alternative trout.

Question: When will I know what team my player is on?

Answer: Majors (11-12 yr olds) and AAA (9-11 yr olds) do a formal draft of players to insure parity in teams.

The Majors draft was held Wed, Jan 15th — the 2014 Majors Managers will contact players usually as early as a week after the draft regarding being part of their teams. Practices can start as early as the end of this week. Don’t panic if you hear nothing through the weekend as the Mangers need to balance work/coaching etc to provide your players with the optimum experience on the field. Assume at least 2 practices a week.

The AAA Minors draft is the week of the Jan 20th — the number of teams is still being worked-out as of this writing. Usually by Feb 1 your player will be notified by a AAA Manager regarding being part of the team, and possible practice schedule. Assume 1-2 practices a week.

For AA and TeeBall — Teams are assigned, and that assignment may not be made until Feb 1 (and even mid-Feb for TeeBall). Once we hit February 1, we will send out another information email regarding AA and TeeBall.
