Burbank Little League Frequently Asked Questions

When does registration close?

Registration for the season closes on Saturday, January 21, 2023. Player evaluations will take place on Saturday, January 28, 2023.

When are evaluations, and do I need to attend ?

Evaluations will be Saturday January 28th from 10am-12pm at Brace Canyon. Your player's specific evaluation window will be determined as we get closer to that date. Attendance at evaluations is required for baseball players born before Sept 1, 2016 (i.e. all players League Age 7 and above) and for all softball players. Our goal is to have evenly matched teams and put players in divisions that are safest for them to play in. 

What will the COVID policies be for the season? 

Burbank Little League follows the guidelines established by the LA County Department of Public Health. As of 11/8/22, the LADPH has the following guidelines for baseball and other moderate-risk outdoor sports:
- Masking for participants and spectators - optional; 
- Routine testing for participants - optional but strongly recommended; 
- Vaccination - not required but strongly recommended that participants are up to date with their vaccines.

What division is best for my child? 

The first step is to read the descriptions on our website.  Each division has an explanation of the basic requirements to participate.  If you are not sure if your child is best suited for Farm versus Minors or Minors versus Majors, we ask that you select the one that fits best now.  Remember that all player in Farm and Minor and some of the Majors, will be required to participate in the player evaluations.  It is possible that after the evaluations some players will be moved up or down a division based on the results.

When does the season start and end?

Teams will be finalized and practices will start in the middle of February. Opening Day is usually the first Saturday in March and games usually begin the following Saturday.  The spring season runs from March through the end of May for Tee Ball and Coach Pitch.  For softball and older baseball divisions, the regular season and playoffs (if applicable) run from March through the end of June. For those involved in All-Stars (Minors, Majors), those games run from June to August.  

When/Where are my games and practices?

-Tee Ball and Coach Pitch: One weeknight practice and one Saturday morning game, typically held at Brace Canyon Park.
-Farm, Minors, and Majors: One or two weeknight practices and potentially two weekly games (one weeknight game, one Saturday game). Practices typically held at Brace Canyon, games at Brace and other neighboring leagues.
-Softball: One or two weeknight practices and potentially two weekly games (one weeknight game, one Saturday game). 

In the Baseball-Farm level and above, Burbank Little League offers inter-league play against teams from Tujunga, Glendale, Foothill and other area Little Leagues. For Softball, games are against a wider selection of greater Los Angeles area teams, requiring local travel.

What equipment do I need to provide? What does the League provide?

The League provides each player with a jersey and a hat. Each participant is responsible to provide that player's pants (usually white or gray at the coach's option), socks and belt (color TBD based on team colors/coach decision), a properly-fitting helmet, an approved bat (see below), baseball mitt/glove, protective cup (boys only), and rubber (not metal) cleats. Big 5 in Burbank typically has all of the above equipment. Used equipment is typically also available at Play it Again Sports in Sherman Oaks and Pasadena.

What about bat types, sizes, and rules?

Do I have to live in Burbank?

You must work, live or go to school in the Burbank city limits, otherwise, a waiver must be supplied by your home city's Little League. When it comes to All-Stars it is mandatory that the player fulfills the residency requirement to prevent “ringers” from joining a team. This can be waived by authority of the Little League District 16 administrator.
