Fall Ball Information

Wilshire Riverside offers a shortened and very relaxed Fall Ball season.  Games are played against teams from other districts on weekends at some of the nicest diamonds in the metro area, sometimes at night under the lights (which the kids love).  Also, the weather is usually much better than in the spring. 

Fall ball is great preparation for kids (and coaches) who will be returning or moving up to Minors or Majors next spring.

Two levels of fall ball are available:

Minors 
This level is for kids who are planning to play Minors in Spring 2018.  Typically, kids at this level have a year of AA or Minors under their belts, and are entering at least 3rd grade. In the spring, Minors is restricted to kids that are Little League Age 9 to 11. Your child's "League Age" can be found on the Little League Age Chart.  

Majors
This level is for kids who are planning to play Majors in Spring 2018.  Typically, kids at this level have two years of Minors or one year of Majors under their belts, and are entering at least 4th grade. Majors is restricted to kids that are Little League Age 10 to 12. Your child's "League Age" can be found on the Little League Age Chart 

Other Fall Ball stuff:

  • Games are in September and October. A maximum of two games per weekend – one Saturday, one Sunday or the occasional Friday night.
  • Very laid back practice schedule—maybe two weeks of practice in August before the season starts, but no practices during the season (because it’s too dark after school).
  • Play against teams from District 4 (Tigard, Lake Oswego, Cedar Mill, Beaverton) and District 1 (North Portland, Scappoose, Hollywood Rose City).
  • Kids can usually play both fall ball and another fall sport without too much conflict.

There are no Fall Ball options at the T-Ball, A, AA, and 50/70 levels.  But 50/70 players and older Majors players should check out the Fall Ball program offered by Grant Youth Baseball for ages 12-14.
