Play-Up Opportunities - Baseball

2024 GLL Baseball Play-Up Tryouts (Ages 8-10)

League Age is determined by the 2024 Little League Age Chart. Stated simply, your child's "league age" is his or her age as of 8/31/2024.

Players must be registered in GLL's 2024 Spring Season in order to be eligible to tryout - no exceptions.
There are no other play-up opportunities in GLL baseball divisions - no exceptions.
For those interested in playing up in our softball divisions, please stay tuned for more information.

Please read the details below as these opportunities will be extremely limited and competitive this year.

AAA Play Up Opportunities

League Age 8 players can evaluate to play up in the AAA Division.

League Age 8 players seeking to play up in AAA should generally be able to do the following:

  • Identify all defensive positions on the baseball field.
  • Throw from third base to first base with some accuracy.
  • Stay alert and engaged throughout defensive innings, ready to receive a throw at any time.
  • Catch fly balls hit in front of them, or to the left or right (moving back on fly balls develops with age).
  • Stay in the batter's box, and take competitive swings against kid pitchers as old age age 10 (may throw up to 45 mph)
  • Demonstrate poise and positivity whether they reach base or strike out, win or lose.

Based on current registration volume GLL estimates that 10 or fewer players will be selected to play up in AAA in 2024 (subject to change). Being selected to play up is not guaranteed and is based on the player's evaluation and available roster spots.

Majors Play Up Opportunities

League Age 9 and 10 players can evaluate to play up in the Majors division, In order to be eligible to try out for Majors, League Age 9 players MUST have consistently demonstrated extraordinary ability and be nominated by their head coach from 2023 Spring baseball. If you are 9 and seek to play Majors, GLL will reach out to your 2023 coach to solicit this nomination. Nominations are not required for League Age 10 players seeking to play Majors.

League Age 10/9 players seeking to play up in Majors should generally be able to do the following:

  • Identify all defensive positions on the baseball field, including common backup assignments when playing these positions.
  • Throw from third base to first base with consistent velocity and accuracy.
  • Stay alert and engaged throughout defensive innings, ready to receive a throw at any time.
  • Catch fly balls hit in front of them, to the left or right, or behind them.
  • Stay in the batter's box, and take competitive swings against kid pitchers as old age age 12 (may throw up to 65 mph, pitchers will throw fastballs, changeups, and occasionally curveballs)
  • Demonstrate poise and positivity whether they reach base or strike out, win or lose.

Based on current registration volume GLL estimates that 5 or fewer players will be selected to play up in Majors in 2024 (subject to change). Being selected to play up is not guaranteed and is based on the player's evaluation and available roster spots.

Baseball evaluations will take place on March 12th from 5:00-8:00PM at the CT Sportsplex in Branford.
