2019 Rule Changes

Approved Rule Changes Effective 2019


Following the annual fall meeting of the Little League® International Board of Directors, Little League International officially announced the rule and regulation changes that will take effect in 2019. The two most notable changes will take place in the International Tournament with a new tiebreaker structure in all divisions, as well as a regulation establishing the number of adults in the dugout or on the field play when a tournament team has 11 or fewer eligible players. 

"Each year, we work with our volunteers to evaluate our official rules and regulations to determine how we can make our program the most effective and provide our members with the best possible Little League experience," said Pat Wilson, Little League Senior Vice President and Chief Program Operations Officer. "Thanks to the valued input from our District Administrators, the Little League International Advisory Board, and the Operations Committee of the Little League International Board of Directors, we were able to determine these updates to our current rules. These two changes, specifically, are focused on providing tournament participants with an enjoyable and memorable experience and we are looking forward to another exciting Little League season in 2019
