Bellevue East Little League - Baseball Program

Bellevue East Little League (BELL) operates several age/skill appropriate levels of recreational baseball. The program is open to both boys and girls.

Our programs are designed to teach players (and parents) the fundamentals of the game while offering a fun, team-oriented environment to develop good sportsmanship, leadership skills, accountability and physical fitness.

No longer just a spring-time activity, Bellevue East Little League offers programs through the spring, summer, fall and winter (indoor clinics & camps).

Players must live within, or attend school within the approved BELL Boundary to be eligible to play on a BELL team.

 

Players are placed on age and skill appropriate teams. All players must be League Age 4 to 14 years to participate. A player's "League Age" is their age on August 31st of the then current season. (CLICK HERE to view the official Little League age chart.)

For example,

  • If Jack was born April 15, 2008, his 2014 League Age is 6 because on April 30, 2014 Jack is 6 years old.
  • If Frank was born May 1, 2008, his 2014 League Age is 5 because on April 30, 2014, Frank is 5 years old.
