WCLL & CLL Members,
I am reaching out to everyone because we have reached a point in the season where we start to prepare for postseason play. This includes both Spring Season Playoffs as well as Summer Tournaments (All-Stars and Summer Select). Below is more detailed information on the upcoming activities.
For A, AA, AAA, and Majors, WCLL & CLL playoffs are either single elimination or double elimination format (dependent on the number of teams in the division) and comprise 2 weeks of post season excitement. There are no playoffs for Peanuts and Juniors Baseball. Intermediate Baseball and Juniors Softball will participate in a best of three series to determine the Tournament of Champions representative.
All A, AA, AAA, and Majors teams are in the playoffs, regardless of regular season record. Teams are bracketed based on the regular season standings. The first place teams from AA-Juniors Divisions will represent Walnut Creek and Continental Little Leagues in the District 4 Tournament of Champions beginning 6/15. Below is the high level playoffs timeline. Your coach will share the bracket details and game dates once the regular season is complete.
5/21: Last regular season games
5/23: Playoffs begin
5/28-3/30: Break for Memorial Day
6/4: Championship weekend
6/15-6/18: Tournament of Champions (District Level)
Walnut Creek & Continental Little Leagues are excited to announce two amazing opportunities to extend the baseball season into the summer. Baseball and softball players league-age 8-to-16 are eligible for selection to either one of our International All-Star Teams or Summer Select Teams. A player must have participated in at least 60% of the regular season scheduled games for which the player was eligible to play. A parent or guardian must submit an International All-Star Team or Summer Select Team application in order to be considered for a team.
All players must live within the established boundaries of WCLL or CLL. If outside the boundary the league must have on record, approved waivers from Little League International Headquarters in Williamsport, PA. Birth certificates and 3 forms proving residency will be required.
For specific time commitments, dates and to register for All Stars and Summer Select, please review the full page description located on the main Tournament Season tab HERE.
