Frequently Asked Questions
 
 
Q: When are games / practices?
A: At all levels, there is a team practice on one weeknight each week (the same day/time each week). 
    Games are on Saturday mornings for the lower levels (Minor B and below), with occasional Sunday games for
    Minor A and regular Sunday games for Majors.  There will be weeknight games at the Babe Ruth level.
 
Q: My child has a conflict on Tuesday nights. Can we request a different night for practice?
A: In your player registration, there is a method to indicate on which nights your child can or cannot practice.
 
Q: How long does the season last?
A: Both the spring and fall seasons last for 8-10 weeks.  The spring season starts with practices in mid-April and
    games from late April (after April school vacation) and run through the remainder of the school year, ending in
    mid-June.  In the fall, the season starts with practices in late August with games starting after Labor Day and
    running through to the end of October.
 
Q: What are the developmental expectations between the various levels?
A: Please visit the Divisions page on the league website for detailed information about each of our 7 divisions.
 
Q: Can I request for my child to play with his friends or a specific coach?
A: For T-ball and Minor C we will honor any team requests to the best of our ability.  However, starting with Minor B,
    the teams are assembled through a draft so there is no way to ensure placement on a particular team. 
    Note that siblings in the same division will always be placed together.

  • An exception will be made for a player who registers for ABYB, subsequently makes a school team, and then wishes to withdraw from ABYB, since school team tryouts may not occur before ABYB teams are formed.

Q: What is the ABYB CORI policy?
A: It is the policy of ABYB, which serves both Little League and Babe Ruth, to require the yearly clearance of a background check (CORI) for all Volunteers prior to repetitive interaction with players or teams in the League.
