Q: Do player's have to "try out"?
A: We have Player Skills Assessments. These are not "Try Outs" as every player makes the team. The Assessment helps us to decide which division your player should play in and to make teams as fair as possible. Players under league age 6 do not need to attend Player Evaluations.

Q: How do I know what my child's League Age is?
A: League Age for Baseball is determined by the age the player will be on August 31st of the current season.
League Age for Softball is determined by the age the player is on December 31st prior to the current season. Girls under 8 years old playing PeeWee's, Single A or AA will go by the Baseball League Age Chart.

Q: Can I request a certain teammate or certain coach?
A: If you have more than one child in our League that play in the same division we will make sure siblings are placed on the same team together. If you are a manager and you want to coach your child you have an opportunity to pick your child in the draft. However we cannot guarantee that friends, cousins or any other relation will be placed on a team together. We have draft procedures and we have to comply with them by Little League rules in order to have fair and balanced teams. 

Q: What do I need to buy for my child to play?
A: The only equipment necessary is a baseball or softball glove and a pair of cleats are recommended if the player is in the minor division or higher. The league will supply all bats, helmets and baseballs for the team. If you would like to buy a bat please make sure that it has a USA Bat logo. For more information visit

Q: When will I hear from my child's coach?  
A: After Player Evaluations are completed minor-senior coaches will meet to select their teams. You should hear back from a coach within 2-3 weeks after evaluations have been completed. Tee Ball and Single A Players should hear from a coach by the last week of March. If you have not heard from your coach please email us at [email protected] and this will be directed to your child's player agent.

Q: How often do teams practice?
A: It is the team's managers discretion on how often teams practice. In most cases Pee Wee and Single A practice twice a week while the older children may practice 3 or more days. All teams are given 2-3 days a week of diamond time and the manager may also practice at another location. This location will be approved by the Board of Directors before the first practice. Generally once games start there will not be many practices for the lower level divisions.

Q: How many games will there be a week?
A: Each team will play one game on a Saturday and one week day game. There may be more games played in a week for Majors-Seniors depending on scheduling and possible tournaments.

Q: When is Picture Day?
A: Picture Day will be on Opening Day. All players will be given the chance to have individual pictures done and team pictures done. Prices vary depending on the package you select. Expect delivery 2-3 weeks after pictures are taken. If you pay by check or debit card please remember to check your bank account to make sure payment went through. If payment was declined you will not receive your pictures.

Q: What is Opening Day?
A: Every year on the first official day of the Season we have Opening Day Ceremonies. The day will start out with a Parade starting from 30th & High School Rd. The players will march down the street carrying their team's banners and chanting Baseball & Softball Cheers! We will then have a few remarks from the League's president and hand out service Awards. Lastly a Special Guest will throw out the Ceremonial first pitches. Teams will have their pictures taken and play their first games of the Season! Opening Day is usually the 2nd or 3rd Saturday in April.

Q: How do I find out about cancellations due to weather?
A: Spring weather in Indiana can be unpredictable! When we have to cancel due to extreme cold weather or rain outs we will post a message on the League's Facebook and Twitter Accounts. You may also call the league phone 317-762-6299. However your teams coach should notify all parents once they have been notified. We rarely will make a decision on games more than an hour before game time.
We will do our best to reschedule all cancelled games if the schedule allows.
