Thank you parents, players, coaches and volunteers for all the help so far.

Player Evaluations: 2022 Spring A.L.L. participants will not be required to evaluate! In a constant effort to improve and develop our players, the Fall Ball program is constantly creating ideas to streamline and expand. With the help of select Spring season managers, coaches & board members, the Fall Program will utilize current progress and other data to aid in the effort to place players with a goal of parity while having fun playing the game of baseball.

*Player Evaluations for new players or those who did not play the Spring Season will be announced on a later date.

Program: A.L.L. Fall Ball is an instructional program available for players 6-12 interested in entering A thru Majors in the 2023 Spring Season. Once again, we will offer clinics and opportunities for registered players to play scrimmages during the Summer break and throughout the Fall season

Location: Alameda Little League Fields: located at Otis and Grand Streets, Alameda, CA 94501

Season: Early August through the end of October
