Fall Baseball Information

The Registration "Fall Baseball Information" is not currently available.


The Fall Ball Schedule is very different from the Spring Season. Please read through all the information below to ensure you can commit to the Fall Season.


Fall Ball is an instructional league for baseball, where practices and games are focused on teaching the fundamentals of batting, pitching, fielding and base running. It's a great time to learn new skills and try new positions. Fall ball baseball is the "spring training" of little league. For those interested in participating, see the FAQ below

Fall ball is predominantly a learning league that should keep kids having fun as they adapt to the next level of baseball. Fall ball is generally seen as a developmental league for young players to improve their skills and get ready for the next level of baseball. The focus is to prepare for the next level of baseball: learning the new rules, getting used to the bigger field dimensions (and the bigger players in the next age bracket), and developing the skills necessary to play at a competent level with their peers.

The goals of  Fall Ball are to:

  1. Have fun playing Baseball.
    1. Adjust to playing up in another division.
    2. Continue the learning and skill development begun in the spring
    3. Provide an option for players that want to continue to play baseball. 



Q: When is it?

A: Practices start in August. The season starts mid to late August and ends in the later part of October. Typically each team will play two games a weekend (Friday evening, Saturday, Sunday). Most teams also practice two days during the week but some might be more, it depends on player age and field availability. 

Q:  What does it cost?

A:  $100.00 For Majors and AAA Ball. $75 for AA Ball. (Note: this does not include the cost of uniforms. Uniforms are purchased separately through Gear Up Sports. This is the same process we used for the Spring 23 season) 

Q: How is it different than the spring season Little League?

A: Fall ball is typically more casual and more focused on instruction rather than competition. There are no standings or scores. Due to kids “playing up” (see below), the level of baseball is at or slightly below the level of play at CMLL within the same divisions. Coaches are encouraged to move the kids around to various positions and give everyone who wants it a chance to pitch and play key positions. Because Fall ball has a smaller number of players, Cedar Mill plays against other little leagues in the area. 

Q: Where are games?

A: Home games are at Sunset Park and HMT. Away games are hosted at local Little League fields.

Q: Why is there only Majors, AAA Ball, and AA Ball?

A: Baseball field availability is limited in the Fall as other Fall Sports get priority on grass fields limiting space for baseball. Be sure to join CMLL next spring for Tee Ball and A Ball. 

Q: Which division should my kid play in?  AA, AAA, Majors?

A: Fall ball is a great opportunity to prepare for the next level of baseball. With some exceptions, your kid should sign up for the division they intend to play in the following Spring. Typical ages within divisions are listed in the CMLL registration process.  You can also find them on our website here. If you still not sure which division, please reach out to our Player Agent.

Unfortunately, due to availability of fields in the Fall across our district, we do not offer a Fall Ball season for Tee-Ball or A Ball. Our registration system will not allow players 5 and under to sign up.

If you have a player who is 6 years old with advanced baseball skills, in some cases they may be allowed to play AA. Please consult with our Player Agent before registering a 6-year-old. 

Q: How can I make sure my kid ends up on a CMLL based team so he knows some kids on the team?

A:  During the registration process make a note in the coach or friend request section. Please keep in mind, we might not be able to make a perfect match. Roster size and requests are based on the total amount of players registered for CMLL fall ball.  

Q: Can I form a team?

A: Yes. If you are interested in coaching, please contact the Fall Ball Coordinator Daniel Camargo at  We would prefer if you would not bring a full team of players, as it gives us less flexibility to add players who are not affiliated with a coach. 

Q: If my kid “plays up” will he/she automatically get to play that higher level in Spring?

A: No. The level your child plays in Fall has no bearing on the level they play in Spring. They must still meet age and evaluation requirements in Spring, even if they played that level in Fall.

Q: What's the difference between Fall and Spring ball?

A: Fall ball is more casual and relaxed than Spring ball and the focus is on learning rather than wins, losses and standings. If you're new to Little League and your child is at least 7 years old, Fall Ball is the perfect opportunity to expose your child to Little League baseball without the competitive atmosphere of Spring baseball. In Fall Ball, there are no playoffs, no standings are kept, and players are encouraged to try out new positions and generally prepare for playing up in the next division.


Q: Are there tryout/evaluations in Fall Ball?

A: No, kids are free to play at the level they select as long as they are playing in a division within their age range and there are no safety issues.

Q: What if my kid plays soccer, other sports, or can’t make it every weekend?

A: Fall Ball is a more flexible program than Spring and many kids play two sports during the fall. If your child will make more than 75% of the Fall Ball season, you should sign up. All we ask is that you work with your child's coach to ensure they know when your player will not be in attendance.

Do keep in mind that Fall Ball is a 4 day a week commitment with practices on M/W or T/TH. Teams play two games each weekend, typically one Saturday and one Sunday game. Sometimes there are Friday evening games instead of a Saturday or Sunday, but each weekend could be different. The Fall Ball game schedule is set by Little League District 4, not CMLL. CMLL does set the practice schedule based on coach request.


Q: What level should my kid sign up for?

A: Generally, kids should sign up for the division they intend to play for in the Spring. Click here to review our division levels and age/grade recommendations. It is important that you sign up your player for the right division. If your player has not played baseball before or is under the recommended age/grade, please contact our Player Agent for consultation. In some rare instances, we will accept players into a higher division if they are advanced for their age.

A full refund will be available up to the registration cut off date. Afterwards, refunds will be considered on a case by case basis. No refunds will be available after Fall Ball practices begin.

Please contact our Fall Ball Coordinator if you would like to request financial assistance. We are fully committed to ensuring that everyone who wants to play Little League Baseball is able to regardless of financial circumstances.
