Q: When does the season start?

A: We typically host our Opening Day event around the first week of April. This is where all league players are announced, run around the bases and have the opportunity to high five local mascots and fellow ball players. Following this celebration, the first games of the season are played by all teams except Tball and Sandlot. Tball and Sandlot teams normally start playing two weeks later.

Q: What equipment does my child need to start playing?

A: Since HLLA supplies uniforms, league bats, helmets and balls one would essentially only need to provide a glove to start playing. Our Pitch In initiative is a great resource for those who need assistance in obtaining gently used baseball and softball equipment.

Q: Do you offer a fall season?

A: As of 2022 we started offering a fall ball season for minor and major baseball, minor and major softball as well as providing the same opportunity for our challenger league.

Q: What is Challenger league?

A: The Little League Challenger program allows individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. Volunteers, we call "buddies", assist the players on the field during their game to help ensure a positive atmosphere.
