Due to Little League changing the date to be used to determine the age of players for baseball, EBC has had to change also. Little League has been using a process of changing one age group each year. EBC did not follow suit until we had no choice. For 2017, EBC is adopting the new change of age determination. Below is the age groups affected. For 12year old players, the age determination will stay at 4/30/17, so that none of the 12 year old players miss out on their last year of 12U baseball.
