Important Majors Draft Information

Planning is underway by the TLL Board of Directors for the 2019 Little League baseball season as we near the opening of registration.  In advance of registration, we wanted to provide you information on a change for the 2019 season in the Major league division affecting those who played on a major league team last season.

The six 2018 season teams will be disbanded.  This means that ALL returning and new major league players will be re-drafted/selected to a new team for the 2019 season.  Every player is required to attend at least one of two player evaluations, which will take place in late-February or early-March.  This is a unique situation and is not usually how evaluations work.  All previous major league players will be selected first during our draft to a new major team.  No player will be moved to the minor division.  The February evaluation dates will be provided in January.  Without attending at least one of the evaluations, a player is not able to be selected to a team.

The re-draft for the major division 2019 season was unanimously agreed upon and approved by the TLL Board of Directors. The board believes that there will be a reduction of major league teams based on number of returning players and minor league players moving to the major league for 2019. Instead of having to make a determination of which specific teams to disband, it was decided to disband all teams and rebuild the teams to establish evenly talented teams.  It is the mission of TLL to provide our children the best possible baseball experience through participating in our program, and to grow and develop our players’ baseball talents.

If you have any questions on the change to the major division for 2019, please contact either Jeremy Johnson, TLL President ([email protected]) and/or Keith Myers, VP of Major Division ([email protected]).
