2024 District Tournament Team Tryout Information

It’s that time of year already – time to set our rosters for the teams that will represent Birmingham Little League in the upcoming District Tournaments. Below is all the information you should need if your player is interested in trying out for a team in his/her age division. At the outset, please note a couple of things… First, to be eligible to play on a district team, a player must have played in at least 60% of his/her BLL regular season games (playoff games do not count). Second, the dates of the District and, as applicable, State Tournaments are provided below. All players who try out for a team should be 100% committed to being available on the dates of the tournaments.
