2020 age key - age keys can be confusing, the following age ranges show eligible ages from youngest to oldest. Keep in mind the youngest players have the most recent birth dates. It may help to say the heading above the date as you are trying to figure out what age division(s) your player is eligible. Example: A player, "born on or before 04/30/2013 (youngest) or born on or after 05/01/2010 (oldest) would be eligible for 8U baseball. Additionally, baseball and softball age keys do differ. MYBSA does not make these age keys we simply follow the industry standards set forth by organization like USSSA.

* MYBSA does allow 6 and 8 year olds to "play up" in the next league, if parent or guardian feels that is what is best for their individual player. This is why there is 3 years of eligibility for the 8U and 10U divisions.
**Bambino is a CO-ED league. Girls and boys sign up separately as the age charts differs by gender, but when teams are picked all are combined.
