2019 Fall Baseball Registration


FALL BASEBALL PLAYER REGISTRATION

Early registration for 16-and-under baseball is now open.


FALL SEASON DATES

KID-PITCH BASEBALL - Sundays, September 8 - November 3, 2019


FARM BASEBALL - Sundays, September 8 - October 27, 2019


SFLL 2019 Baseball Fall Ball Season

Fall Ball starts in September and ends in early November. All games are played on Sundays which makes it much easier to plan your schedule in advance of the season. The season is developmental at all levels and this means that there are no scores or standings and umpires are not assigned to games. Parent volunteers serve as umpires, calling balls and strikes from behind the pitcher.

From Minors and above, the season ends with a round-robin series of games where scores are kept and umpires are used.

FEES

From May 28 - August 1, fees for the 2019 Fall Ball season are $145. Starting on August 2nd, fees increase to $175. To complete your registration, you must register online and submit applicable fees. Payment by credit card is preferred. Please contact the Registration Coordinator if you would like to pay by check.

We want you to play ball with us regardless of economic circumstances. The online SFLL application form includes a menu option to request a fee waiver due to economic hardship, and offers options to pay a reduced fee--or to request a 100% fee waiver. You will also be asked to provide a brief statement online supporting your fee waiver request.

REFUNDS

You have 14 days or until June 14th, 2019 to withdraw your registration and receive a refund, minus a $50.00 administration fee. Absolutely No Refunds are given after June 14th, 2019. In order to receive a refund, please email the Registration Coordinator.

LITTLE LEAGUE AGE

Little League Age is determined by their age as of August 31, 2020.

DIVISIONS

In the Fall we do not carry out skills evaluation sessions (SES). Players are placed in the divisions we expect them to play in the Spring of 2020, but this can change following the Fall season and after the player participates in an SES in advance of the Spring 2020 season.  

 

FALL BALL DIVISIONS

 

Farm (coach-pitch)

Players must have a Little League Age of 6 or older to play in San Francisco Little League. Kids with a Little League Age of 6 or 7 generally play Farm. Upper Farm is for older or more experienced kids and Lower Farm is for younger kids with less baseball experience.

The Farm division allows for coaches to make limited group requests. Coaches' kids are automatically assigned to the team with their parent but a head coach may also request up to three additional players for their team subject to the League guideline that limits the number of players from the same school to a maximum of four and in the same grade at the same school to a maximum of three.

Group requests must be submitted by the head coach to the Registration Coordinator and the Farm Player Agent(s) by 7/31/19. Such requests must include the player names, school, grade, and parent email for the players involved. We ask that the coach registration be submitted within five days of registering your child. Player Agents may disallow a group if it upsets the balance on a team and/or in the division.

 

Rookie (beginning kid-pitch)

Players with a Little League Age of 8 and some less experienced players with a Little League Age of 9 will play Rookie in the Fall.

The Rookie division allows for coaches to make limited group requests. Coaches' kids are automatically assigned to the team with their parent but a head coach may also request up to three additional players for their team subject to the League guideline that limits the number of players in the same school to a maximum of four and in the same grade at the same school to a maximum of three.

Group requests must be submitted by the head coach to the Registration Coordinator and the Rookie Player Agent(s) by 7/31/19. Such requests must include the player names, school, grade, and parent email for the players involved. We ask that the coach registration be submitted within five days of registering your child. Player Agents may disallow a group if it upsets the balance on a team and/or in the division.

MINORS

Players with a Little League Age of 9 or 10 and who played Rookie in the Spring will generally play Minors. Players with a Little League Age of 10 and some with a Little League Age of 11 will also play Minors.

Majors

Skilled players with a Little League Age of 11-year who have played Minors and are ready to move up and almost all kids with a Little League Age of 12-will play Majors.

Juniors 60/90

Players with Little League Age of 13 and 14 will play in our Juniors 60/90 division. If we run a Seniors 16U division, some 14 year olds may be placed there.

SENiors 16U

We are accepting registrations for players with Little League Ages of 16 and 15. With enough registrations we will run a Seniors 16U division. Highly skilled 14 year olds may be asked to play Seniors 16U.

FALL COACH REGISTRATION

Our League is always looking for good coaches. Fall Ball is less demanding and a great way for new coaches to test the waters and for experienced coaches to keep in touch without the time demands of the Spring season. We hope to confirm coaches by mid-July so please get those applications in now.
