Arcadia American Little League

Play Ball!

Little League Baseball is ENTIRELY ran by volunteers.  The registration fees are used to cover expenses such as insurance, field permits, umpires, equipment, and uniforms.  Our Board Members and Coaches are all parents and members of our community looking to help create a positive environment to have fun and learn the game of baseball.  We're always looking for new people to help out, so if you'd like to be a coach on your kid's team or think you could help the league in another capacity please let us know!

Arcadia American Little League hosts divisions for players "Little League Ages" 4 - 12 years old. ("Little League age" is how old a player will be on August 31st of the year when the season takes place)

For Spring and Fall Seasons all registered players will be placed on a team with kids similar in age and baseball ability.  Each team will have their own schedule of games and practices.  Spring Season generally consist of 2 or 3 events each week (Combination of Practices and Games), Fall Season is typically 1 or 2 weekday practices and a Saturday game.  All games and practices will start after 4pm on Weekdays, and throughout the day on Saturdays.  We play at schools and parks in/near Arcadia.

Players will be given a team shirt+hat at the beginning of the Season and will receive a trophy at the end.

We also host some free clinics in the Summer and Winter; see our "Clinics" page for more info.


Here are the steps to register:

1 - Make sure your player goes to school OR lives within our league's boundaries.  (Schools such as Baldwin Stocker, Hugo Reid, Holly Avenue, Longley Way, and Holy Angels are in our boundaries)
*Click HERE to see which league your address/school fall under* 


2 - Visit the "Sign-ups" page to see our upcoming programs and complete registration and payment for your child; each division will have a description, if you aren't sure what division you want to sign up for email us at [email protected] and we will recommend a spot based on the player's age and experience.

3 - Your player will need some of their own gear to participate.  Below this list is a breakdown of what equipment each kid will need.

4 - When the season starts the league will reach out via email to let you know your player's tryout time.  All players will be placed on a team, the tryout just helps the coaches draft fair teams and make sure kids get placed in the right division for their skill level. 

5 - About 2 weeks after tryouts take place you'll be placed on a team and the manager will reach out to you with the practice schedule.  After a few weeks of practices you'll start playing games against other teams.


Here is the equipment needed to start

Glove:
Each player will need to have their own baseball glove.  Make sure to buy a glove that goes on their non-dominant hand (The dominant hand is used to throw). Gloves are measured in inches and are mostly picked by what feels most comfortable; in general 4-6 years old should be using a glove under 11 inches, 7-10 year olds should be around 11 inches, and 11 and up should be over 11 inches.  Make sure to buy a "Normal" glove; they sell special long ones for first base and ones with extra padding for catcher, kids just need the basic glove to play anywhere.

Bat:
Players will need a Little League approved bat; the way to tell if a bat is Little League approved is to check for the USA stamp (See below)

To estimate how long a player's bat should be have them stand up straight with their arms at their side; the distance between the ground and their wrist is about how long their bat should be.

To see if a bat is too heavy for a kid have them grip the bottom of the bats handle then stick their arm and bat straight out to the side; if they start wiggling in a couple seconds the bat is probably too big for them.  In general kids should be using the biggest bat that they can swing comfortably.

Helmet:
All players will need their own batting helmet. (Recommend getting black so it looks fine regardless of which team they get placed on each year)

Cleats:
Players will need baseball cleats.  Little League is not allowed to use metal spikes, so make sure to buy ones that have plastic or rubber on the bottom. (Recommend getting black so it looks fine regardless of which team they get placed on each year)

Baseball Pants:
What color you need will depend on what your team goes with as their uniform.  Gray pants are recommended for practices as they are easier to wash. The pants you'll need for the game will depend on your team's uniform.

Athletic Supporter/compression shorts:
All players should wear an athletic supporter or compression shorts under their baseball pants. Aside from tball, a hard cup is required for all male players.

Baseball Socks/Belt/Undershirt:
What color you need will depend on what team you are on; after being placed on a team your manager will let you know what color you will need.
