Spring Season Games & Practices

Registration for our Spring Season opens in mid-October and continues through mid-January. Click here to learn how to register your player

Our season typically begins in mid-April and lasts 8 weeks. Teams will play one game on a weeknight, and one on select Saturdays.  Weeknight games start at 6 or 6:30pm. Saturday games are usually at 11am or 1pm.  All games last 1 hour and 50 minutes. 

All Tee Ball and Baseball games are played at our fields at Lawrence Central Park or Village Park. Babe Ruth Baseball and Softball seasons include an interleague component where teams play a portion of their games against other local towns, home and away

Opening Day is the first Saturday of the Season. The League hosts a parade for all players as well as opening ceremonies. Bring your camera!

All players, parents, coaches, spectators, and guests associated with LTJBSA events must abide by our Code of Conduct

Photo Day is generally on a Saturday in mid-May. Team and Individual Pictures are available for purchase. Your coach will provide you with information about picture packages and the schedule for your team. 

BASEBALL DIVISION PLAYOFFS

Our Spring Season culminates in playoffs for our in-house league.

  • Standings are determined by record. 
  • Forfeit counts as a win/loss. 
  • Rainouts that cannot be made up count as a tie. 
  • All teams in each baseball division will make playoffs.

For our Rookies and Minors Divisions, we hold a single elimination tournament with playoff position determined by random draw.

For our Majors Division, we host the Lawrence World Series. A single elimination first round with best 2 of 3 finals. Playoff position determined by regular season record. 


Summer Tournaments

New Jersey District 12 an official “District” tournament each year, usually held between June 25 and July 15; and a “house” tournament held between July 16 and July 30. Each tournament offers brackets for different age groups. 

Lawrence enters teams based on player availability in each age group. If an age group has enough interest to make a team, we will form a team at that age level first before asking players to “play up.”


Criteria for selection to a Tournament Team:
  • Participation in at least 8 regular season games, with at least 1 at bat and 1 inning played in the field (unless granted a medical exemption)
  • Ability demonstrated during the regular season, as observed by each coach in the players’ division
  • Ability demonstrated during the tryout process in the following areas: throwing, catching, fielding, baserunning, hitting (see our player development rubric for more details)
  • Roster makeup by position as determined by the Head Coach
The Head Coach makes the final roster participation decisions. By trying out for a Tournament Team, you and your player agree to abide by their decisions for roster selection and playing time.

An important note about Summer Tournaments: 

Little League District Tournament season is a commitment to be available to play or practice anytime between June 15-July 30. Games may be scheduled or reschedule game at a moments notice to accommodate shifting weather patterns or changing schedules at the State level. Teams may be asked to wait out a weather delay in a dugout until late at night to finish a game, then be asked to return the following day to play again. 

Lawrence Little League's policy is that any player that commits to a District Team but misses a scheduled game without an excused absence will be prohibited from trying out the following year. If a family cannot commit to being available for this period, we strongly recommend that their player does not attend try outs and potentially take a roster spot from a player who can make the full commitment. 

Fall Ball Program

In September and October, we offer boys and girls ages 5-12 a Fall Ball program with a more relaxed atmosphere,  focusing on the fundamentals. Registration typically begins in August and the program starts after Labor Day. 

Depending on enrollment, the program usually forms teams in the 7-9 age group, and then in the 10-12 age group. Players typically in the division above the one they played during Spring Season. There is usually one practice or game during weeknights. Registration fees for Fall Ball include a team shirt and hat.
