Player Evaluations


Who Gets Evaluated?


All baseball players registered for player-pitch levels of Minors AA, Minors AAA, Majors, Intermediates and Juniors require an evaluation for the Spring 2023 season. If your player is registered for Coach Pitch but you think they might be able to play Minors AA, they should evaluate as well. There are no evaluations for the Fall season.

Player evaluations are an important part of the team formation/draft process to help us achieve MCLL’s objectives of placing players at the appropriate skill level (division), achieving team parity and compliance with Little League International rules. It also helps create a memorable, fun, and fair playing environment for all players. To be clear, evaluations are not a tryout. All players are placed on a team regardless of skill level.


Evaluations will start in early 2023. A sign-up will be emailed to registered players once the evaluation dates and locations are determined.

To Sign-Up

What Parents/Players Should Know


  • What should my son/daughter bring to evaluations?

    • Players should bring a baseball glove, bat, batting helmet, and water bottle. Batting gloves are optional.

    • Sneakers only, NO CLEATS!!

    • We will not be evaluating catchers, so no need to bring catcher's gear.

    • Face coverings are required for all players and guardians.


  • Why do you hold player evaluations?

  • To ensure players are placed at the appropriate level and to create parity among the teams. Occasionally we have parents request a level of play for their son or daughter. Although we understand the many different reasons for the request, we encourage parents to trust this process and the value of skill evaluation. Over the years what we have discovered is in using the evaluation data for placement, the player benefits, has higher success and a better overall experience.
