DeMotte Little League

Our Divisions

Our Baseball & Softball Programs

The Little League organization has a specific method for calculating age which is DIFFERENT than a player's actual age.  
For the Tee-Ball/Pee-Wee and Baseball Divisions, use the players age as of August 31, 2020.
For the Softball Divisions, use the players age as of January 1, 2020.

All Divisions practice 1 or 2 times per week from March 30 until April 24, weather permitting.
We will hold Opening Day on April 25 (backup date May 2 in case of inclement weather).
Most games are held on weeknights at 6:00 pm.
