Age 8-15 - Baseball (AA, AAA, Majors, Juniors); Coed, though most players are boys.

How do I register my player? What do I need? How much does it cost?
For the 2024 Spring Season, registration is open from 11/1/23-1/7/24. Please start your registration online.
You will also need to provide the following at an in-person registration event:
What equipment does my player need?
PLL provides a team hat and shirt to all players. Families are responsible for providing the following:
- Pants, socks, and belt in colors to be determined by their team manager
- Rubber Cleats (metal spikes allowed in Juniors division and above)
- Batting helmet
Although some families choose to purchase additional equipment like bats, PLL provides approved bats, balls, and catcher's gear to each team.
If my player drops from the league, do I get a refund?
Players who drop prior to teams being formed will be refunded their full registration fees, minus the site processing fee.
Players who drop between team formation and the start of games will be refunded registration fees minus $50 and the site processing fees.
Players who drop after games start will not be refunded.
When are practices and games scheduled?
PLL currently hosts a spring season which runs late February to the end of May (as late as August for post-season tournaments). Games and practices are scheduled weekday evenings and all day Saturday. Some managers also schedule practices on Sundays.
Starting in 2023, PLL also offers a developmental Fall Ball season from late August through October.
Teams meet 2-5 times per week for 1-2 hours (younger players generally less frequently and for shorter duration).
What is the volunteer policy?
Starting with the 2023 season, families will be required to volunteer two hours per player (four hours max per family). A $100 deposit per player will be collected at registration, to be destroyed upon completion of the required hours. Click here for more information.
All volunteers who work directly with kids must submit a volunteer background check through JDP. Those who volunteer 16+ hours per month or 32+ hours per year must also complete a Live Scan background check per California law (AB 506).
Is Financial Assistance Available?
Yes! PLL believes that all kids who want to play should get to play, regardless of their family's financial status. We offer flexible payment plans, partial and full registration scholarships as well as help providing new and gently used equipment. Get your Financial Aid Application here.
Our scholarships are funded entirely by community donations, so we ask that each family only take what they need and pay it forward by donating back to the League and/or volunteering when they can.
There are also outside sources of financial assistance that we may ask you to apply for to help preserve our scholarship fund. These are:
