Tee-Ball (Co-ed):  
Boys and Girls League ages 4-6 may play tee-ball.  In some cases, 7-year-olds may play tee-ball if they have never played before.

Minor – Coach Pitch (Softball & Baseball):  Boys & Girls league ages 6 through 8 may play rookie division.  In some cases, 9-year-olds may play down if they have never played before.  5-year-olds may play in this division if they have played 1 year of Tee Ball and there are no safety concerns.

Minors – Player Pitch (Softball & Baseball):  Boys & Girls League ages 7 through 11 may play minor division.  In some cases, 12-year-olds may play down to minor division, but they are NOT permitted to pitch and must sign a pitching waiver provided by the league.  Minor division players are required to try-out to assess skills to play in this division.  This is for player safety.

Majors – Player Pitch (Softball & Baseball):  Boys & Girls league ages 10 thru 12 may play major division.  In some rare cases 9-year-olds may play up into majors if they are assessed as having adequate playing experience.  Major Division players MUST try-out to ensure proper team placement.

If I live outside of MNLL boundaries but want to play for Medford National, what do I have to do?

Any player who does not reside within or attend school within a league boundary is not able to participate in that league regardless of the age of the player, without a waiver issued by the Little League International Charter Committee in Williamsport, Pa.  Players that do not reside within a league boundary but attend a school that is physically located within the league boundary are permitted to participate in that league with full eligibility.

I live in East Medford/White City how do play for Little League?

Medford is divided into 2 leagues.  The children who live in East Medford/White City play for Medford American Little League.  The only way we can have a player who lives on east side (or any area outside our boundaries) play for us is to attend an accredited school within our boundaries.

Must my child have medical and dental insurance to be eligible to play?

If you do not have insurance, just write none on the form.  Our insurance carrier asks for this so that if an injury occurs, they can work with the injured players insurance company.  It is not required to have insurance.

Why do I need to bring a birth certificate?

Birth Certificates are checked at registration to assure child is stated age.  If you do not have one, we will sign you up, but if child plays in post season tournament games (All Stars), we must have a copy or child won't be allowed to play. This is also true if child plays soccer and many other sports.  We check them at initial registration, so it reminds parents they need them and order them before June.

What equipment do I need to purchase?

Your child will need a glove, bat, helmet, and sturdy shoes (cleats encouraged but not required). The League provides a jersey and hat (visor for softball). Most teams try and coordinate sock and pant colors, but it is not required. Rubber sole cleats are allowed only for tee-ball, rookies, minor and major divisions (junior softball and senior baseball can wear metal cleats).
