Intermediate World Series Returns To Livermore
After a very successful inagural year for the Intermediate League program, Little League International has again chosen Livermore, California to be the host site for the 2015 Intermediate Little League World Series (LLWS).
The Intermediate LLWS, which is for players age 11-13, will be hosted at Max Baer Park, home of Granada Little League. The dates are scheduled for July 29 - August 4.
"We are very excited to have the Intermediate LLWS return to Livermore and the CA District 57 area," said CA57 District Administrator Dave Wetmore. "Last year, Granada was a fabulous host, and all of the CA57 leagues, and the entire Tri-Valley community really came together to put on a tremendous event. With the national television coverage on ESPN, it provided great exposure for our district, our sponsors, and the entire Tri-Valley region. We are looking forward to providing an even better time this year."
Last summer, 10 team from around the world decended upon Livermore for the Intermediate LLWS. The final game,which was broadcast worldwide on ESPN, found the Izumisano LL team from Osaka Japan defeating the Collier Township/Chartiers Valley LL team to take the championship.
Those that are interested in helping sponsor the event should contact Steve Fields at email@example.com

Alerting All Parents with Children born after January 1, 2006
Statement From Little League International:
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 remainder of their Little League Baseball career.
Summary of Change:
Little League is adjusting the way they determine the "League Age" of children from a April 30th deadline (i.e. May 1st to April 30th) to a calendar year (i.e. January 1st to December 31st).
Effective immediately all Little League will be following this chart on age (for those born after January 1, 2006):
Impact on PALL
Any children with a birthday after January 1, 2006 could have their League Age pushed up 1 year (see chart above).
Given that change you now have an option to move into a different level of play (see Level Descriptions for more information of the different levels).
If you would like to move divisions, you will need to do the following (based on your age change):
- Contact the PALL Registrar and let him know of your change (firstname.lastname@example.org). For example, my son Joe Smith is currently signed up for Farm and I would like to move him to Minor A given the age change.
- If you are moving into AA or AAA; you are required to attend the next/final evaluations which will take place on January 10th (see the PALL Website for further information on location/times).
Important Note: Given AA/AAA are draft level divisions, if you do not attend evaluations then you won't be able to be drafted into these divisions.
Please Note: There has been many discussions on this age change at the District and International Little League levels (debating pros and cons of this age change). To be in compliance with Little League, PALL will implement the change this year. You do NOT need to move your son up a level; it is up to the parent's discretion.
