Little league.png

Join us for our 2nd season of the Montclair Little League baseball. Each participant will be divided up through an evaluation process based on skill and ability to level out league play for a balanced and enjoyable season for all. Please note, all players will be placed to a team. There are no player cuts. Once you are placed to a team, you will then be contacted by your coach to schedule your first day of practice.

Date of Birth must be between

Minors 9/1/2011- 9/30/2014 to be eligible.

Majors 9/1/2010 through 9/30/2013 to be eligible. 

NEW for 2023:

We have expanded the age ranges for both leagues based on our experience and feedback from 2022.  Parents of 4th or 5th graders now have a CHOICE about which league they want to sign up for. We anticipate that most 4th graders will play in the minors, but if you have an experienced 4th grader who you think would thrive in the majors, competing with and against older children, you have the option to sign up for the Majors.  Conversely, if you have a 5th grader who is new to baseball or would prefer to continue to develop their skills in a less intense competitive environment, you have the option to sign up for the Minors. If you have questions about this change, please reach out to [email protected]
