House baseball/softball FAQs

This is an FAQ that should be able to answer the vast majority  of questions that come in to baseball@ljal.com


What age groups are available, and which one will my son/daughter be placed in?

  • Baseball age groupings are the following (all divisions are kid pitch):
    • 8U (Pinto) 05/01/2006 – 04/30/2009
    • 10U (Mustang) 05/01/2004 – 04/30/2006
    • 12U (Bronco) 05/01/2002 – 04/30/2004
    • 14U (Pony) 05/01/2000 – 04/30/2002
  • Softball age groupings are the following (all divisions, with exception of 8U, are kid pitch):
    • 8U  all birthdates 2006 - 2008 (machine pitch)
    • 10U all birthdates in 2004 & 2005
    • 12U all birthdates in 2002 & 2003
    • 14U all birthdates in 2000 & 2001
  • 16U & 19U baseball registration will take place in March/April with the season taking place once the high school season is complete
  • We are assessing interest in 16U softball, depending on number of players that reply, we may need to partner with Northville and/or other communities.  Please send an e-mail to:  baseball@ljal.com with your information if you are interested


What days of the week will practices/games be on?

  • For the most part 8/10U age divisions practices and games are on Tue/Thur and on the weekends (either Sat or Sun), and the 12/14U practices and games are on Mon/Wed  and again on the weekends; but it will ultimately depend on how many total teams are playing, as well as availability of diamonds

What time do the games take place?

  • Games Mon-Fri will be at 6:15, the individual team coaches will determine what time the players need to be at the diamond prior to the game; games on Sat could start as early as 8am, or as late as 5pm; games on Sun start at noon; with the last games of the day starting at 5pm


When does the season start and when does it end?

  • There will be a rough season timeline posted to our website soon (ljal.com/baseball), but generally speaking; the house season starts the first full week of May (5th), and concluding with the league wide all-star game on June 20th


How can I place my son/daughter with a particular friend and/or coach?

  • During the registration process (electronic & walk-in form); there is a field entitled “special request” where you would place the name of one (1) player or one (1) coach that you wish your son/daughter to be placed with
  • You will also want to confirm what age grouping the friend and/or coach will be in as well
  • We will consider requests to play up, but cannot consider those to play down


How are the teams assembled?

  • The unit areas have been phased out as a detrmining factor in placing players on teams, the primary criteria now is special requests (playing with a friend, or a particular coach), the secondary criteria would be the school attended


We hope this helps answer many of the questions you may have, but as always, contact us at baseball@ljal.com if you have anything additional that may not be covered here.
