Top 9 FAQs about VLL Fall Ball

 

1. What levels are offered for Fall Ball?

Fall Ball offers Juniors, Single A, AA, AAA, and Majors.  Single A thru Majors are primarily for players who were League Ages 6 thru 11 for the Spring 2018 season.  Juniors is primarily for players who were League Age 4 or 5 for the Spring 2018 season. League Age can be verified using the table HERE.

 

Juniors is a new offering for Fall 2018.  It will operate in a Sunday afternoon-only format, with 90 minute afternoon sessions consisting of a 30 minute practice and a 60 minute game.  Batters will hit from a tee to promote pace of play.

 

Single A is coach pitch, while AA thru Majors are kid pitch.  These levels offer twice-weekly games, and scheduled practice days/times – typically a practice during the week, a weekday game, and a Saturday game (Majors will play games twice during the week in lieu of Saturdays).

 

2. What’s different between Spring Baseball and Fall Ball?

Fall Ball is a much more relaxed, “supplemental” season where we try to focus on the developmental aspect of the game.  For example, standings are not kept at any level to encourage managers to give players opportunities to play different positions in a less competitive environment.  To further emphasize the developmental aspect of Fall Ball, VLL intends to incorporate instructional clinics into the schedule.

 

Also, the levels offered for our younger players are a bit different.  In the Fall, we offer Juniors and Single A to cover League Ages 4 thru 8 - Juniors uses a tee, while Single A is coach pitch.  In the Spring, League Ages 4 thru 8 are further differentiated into T-Ball, Rookie, and Single A levels. As such, certain players may, for example, play Single A in the Fall then Rookie Ball the following Spring.

 

3. How long is the Fall season?

Teams will form in mid to late August, at which time you will receive an email from your son/daughter’s manager.  Games start after Labor Day and run thru the end of October.

 

4. Are there tryouts for Fall Ball?

No.

 

5. Can I request a specific manager or teammate for my son or daughter?

For our Juniors and Single A levels, we do our best to form teams with manager, teammate, and other requests in mind.  These requests can be noted in the Preferred Manager and Registration Comments section at sign-up, or by logging back into VLL.org and editing a submitted registration.   AA thru Majors are traditionally formed via draft, so specific requests typically cannot be honored.

 

6. Can I manage a team?

Interested managers should email our Fall Ball Director, Andy Dinn (aedinn@gmail.com).  There may still be a few spots left!

 

7. My son or daughter’s registration is “waitlisted” – what does that mean?

Typically, a waitlisted registration indicates a player lives outside the Vienna Little League boundary.  These players may only participate with proper documentation that confirms he or she attends a school within the Vienna Little League boundary.  Waitlisted registrations are reviewed manually, and will typically be resolved within 3-5 days. VLL will contact the parent if additional information is needed.

 

8. How does Fall Ball impact my son or daughter’s Spring 2019 placement?

Fall Ball is considered a supplemental season.  As such, it has no bearing on a player’s Spring placement.

 

Example 1:  A player who was League Age 6 in Spring 2018 may participate in Single A in Fall 2018.  The following spring, in this case Spring 2019, Vienna Little League offers two levels for this age - Rookie Ball and Single A.  The majority of players will play Rookie Ball, while a limited number may play Single A - the latter is strictly limited to 2-3 players per team.

 

Example 2:  A player who was League Age 7 in Spring 2018 may request to participate in AA in Fall 2018.  This player would be placed on a AA team on a space available basis. In Spring 2019, this player must tryout and be drafted by a AA team to play AA.

 

9. How else can I help?

VLL is an all-volunteer organization, so we have ample opportunities for parents to help.  Several options can be chosen on the registration form, and you will be contacted for that role when we need you.
