2019 Postseason Tournament Teams
Posted May 9, 2019

Does your player love baseball so much that three months just isn't enough?  Are they looking to expand their baseball skills even farther through post season tournament play? 

Registration is now open through May 17, 2019 for CMLL post season play at cmllonline.org.

Cedar Mill Little League is preparing to select players for the Post Season.  All players who are interested in being considered for selection to any of the Cedar Mill Little League post season tournament teams must register.  No player can be selected without signing up online at www.cmllonline.org.  Please read the attached information carefully before signing up.  Players will be selected based on their playing ability, eligibility, and availability.

Schedule:  Tournaments typically are formatted with pool play followed by single elimination.  Tournaments typically last seven to nine days.  Players are expected to be present at all practices and games.  The dates for the tournaments are tentatively scheduled as follows…

8 to 10 Honors: practices start around June 10, 2019.  The one-week tournament starts June 15 at location TBD 

11 to 12 Honors: practices start around June 10, 2019 The one-week tournament starts June 15 at Alpenrose 

8 to 10 All Stars: practices start around June 10, 2019. The tournament starts June 26, 2019 in Lake Oswego.  If CMLL wins the district bracket, they move to the next round of tournament in Clackamas on July 6, 2019. 

9 to 11 All Stars: practices start around June 10. The tournament starts July 6 in Tigard.  If CMLL wins the district bracket, they move to the next round of tournament in Klamath Falls on July 19, 2019. 

10 to 12 (Majors) All Stars: practices start around June 10, 2019. The tournament starts June 29, 2019 at Alpenrose.  If CMLL wins the district bracket, they move to the State tournament, in Bend, OR on July 13, 2019.  If CMLL wins the State tournament, they move to the regional tournament in San Bernardino, CA  on August 5, 2019.

Attendance Requirements: CMLL postseason teams play in very competitive District 4 tournaments.  This level of play requires our teams to work very hard to maximize talents and be competitive.  Consequently, the teams will plan on practicing daily (some teams may practice twice a day) and playing some practice games in the weeks prior to the tournaments.   This is a big commitment and the players are required to make this team their priority, or they will not be considered for selection.  The managers will have the option to dismiss a player for lack of attendance.  This means sports camps, family vacations, and other sports teams must be postponed until the completion of these post-season baseball tournaments.  

Participation Cost:   Costs will be $125 per player for All Stars and $85 per player for Honors.  Financial scholarships are available.  

Residency: Players must either maintain a residence within the CMLL boundaries or have a school waiver or a II(d) waiver in place to be eligible for postseason play.  Parents will be asked to provide proof of residency paperwork.

Age: Teams are divided by age.  League age can be determined using chart at: http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/age-chart-baseball.pdf

  • 12s – September 1, 2006 – August 31, 2007
  • 11s – September 1, 2007 – August 31, 2008
  • 10s – September 1, 2008 – August 31, 2009
  • 9s – September 1, 2009 – August 31, 2010
  • 8s – September 1, 2010 – August 31, 2011

If you are interested in All-Star consideration, please read the following paragraph twice. Due to the competitve nature of All-Star teams, rosters and position placement are decided to maximize the chance of a victory.

Tournament Rules:  All-Star tournaments do not bat the roster.  A nine player batting order is used and National Little League Substitution Rules will apply.  If a tournament team has thirteen (13) or more eligible players in uniform at a game, then every player on a team roster shall participate in each game for a minimum of one (1) at bat. If a tournament team has twelve (12) or fewer eligible players in uniform at a game, then every player on a team roster shall participate in each game for a minimum of six (6) consecutive defensive outs and bat at least one (1) time.  Consequently, playing time will not be distributed evenly.  These are competitive teams, and the games will be managed to maximize the chance of victory.  It is important that you discuss these aspects of tournaments with your player before you register to avoid any potential disappointment.  We also recommend that you read “All-Stars Experience” (http://www.cmllonline.org/post_season) on the CMLL website for additional perspective. 

Coaches for all teams will be selected by the CMLL board.  The board will also have final approval of all post-season tournament rosters.

Expect Team rosters and coaches will be announced the first week of June.  Parent meetings will happen shortly afterwards, and practices begin after the Majors, Minors and AAA Championships. Expect them to start in the June 10thtimeframe (barring rainout issues).  Both the parent meeting and the practices are mandatory.

If you have read to this point, you are definitely interested in postseason play - congrats!  Please register by May 17, 2019 at cmllonline.org.

Thank you so much!  If you have questions or concerns, please email me at pa@cmllonline.org.

Spring 2019 Registration Info

Player Registration is CLOSED for Spring 2019.

Spring Registration is now closed...mostly.  There are still a few openings left in AA and T-ball.  Majors, Minors, AAA, and A teams are all full.  Players may sign up on a waitlist.  

Teams for spring are formed at the T-ball, A, AA, AAA, Minors, and Majors levels.  Descriptions of each level and age requirements can be found on CMLL’s website. Please note that age recommendations are based on “league age."   See the age chart on the Little League International for more details.  http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/age-chart-baseball.pdf

Coaches/Volunteers:  In an effort to streamline our processes and create a more secure environment, our web host (Stack Sports) will be conducting our background checks.  You will be asked for your social security number as part of the registration process.  Details around security and how/why the number is needed are supplied on the registration page during registration.

The CMLL guidelines for which division is suited for a given age is listed below.  There are overlaps, so your child will be in the age range for multiple divisions.  Please note that this is a guideline.  Parents should sign their children up for the division they feel is appropriate for their child's skill level.  The system is set up for the age ranges below, so if you would like your child to play in a division outside of the recommended age range, please email the player agents (Melissa Gresham and Kristin Dann) at pa@cmllonline.org, and we will make arrangements to put your child in the requested league.

  • Majors = September 1, 2006 - August 31, 2008
  • Minors = September 1, 2007 - August 31, 2009
  • AAA = September 1, 2007 - August 31, 2010
  • AA = September 1, 2009 - August 31, 2011
  • A = September 1, 2010 - August 31, 2012
  • T-Ball = September 1, 2012 -  August 31, 2014

Registration Fees are as follows:

  • Majors = $250 - Regular registration closes 1/27/19

NOTE: For players who will try out for the AAA, Minors and Majors levels, there will be an evaluation on Sunday, February 24, 2019 at Indoor Goals.  The exact time slot for your player will be communicated at a later date.  AAA, Minors and Majors level rosters will be built via a draft process in Spring 2019.  The purpose of the evaluation is to ensure that players are placed in the correct division according to their skill level as well as to help managers draft teams that will create parity in the league.  Note that it is possible that a few players may not be selected for the division in which they registered.  In those cases, they will be placed in the next lower division

Late registrations will be allowed for a short period of time after the January 27th deadline (February 17th for T-Ball, A, and AA levels) but a $25 late fee will be added in addition to the regular fee.

Every player needs to have a Tualatin Hills Parks and Rec District (THPRD) card.  Click here for instructions on how to obtain one.

In-district Family Assistance: The goal of the THPRD Family Assistance Program is to ensure that all Park District residents have access to recreation programs. Since Cedar Mill Little League is registered with THPRD, in-district families may be eligible for family registration assistance funds from THPRD.  Please go to the following site for Family Assistance for more information and complete the Scholarship request form.

Little League relies heavily on volunteers to thrive. We are actively looking for Managers for all levels of play. If you are interested in being a team manager or assistant coach please we HIGHLY encourage you to volunteer. It is a greatly rewarding experience. All managers and assistant coaches must also complete a volunteer background check form which can be filled out online.

We are all looking forward to another great season of baseball!

If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact Melissa Gresham and Kristin Dann, CMLL’s Player Agents at pa@cmllonline.org.
