Baseball Fall Ball

Fall Ball Overview

Fall Ball is a developmental program designed to give players the opportunity to play more baseball and prepare for the level of play in the division they plan to play the following spring. Knowing that other sports such as football and soccer are played by our players in the fall, Fall Ball has a more relaxed approach and understands that some practices and/or games may be missed. Tigard Little League teams play other Districts 4 and District 1 teams at their skill level. No standings are kept and there are no tournaments at the end of the season. Players need to have participated in the previous spring season in order to play Fall Ball unless the player is new to Tigard Little League. Level of play is determined using next year's spring season player age, (Little League Age Calculator)
