1. Little League International Rulebook

  • Institutes a new rulebook on January 1 every year.
  • These rules are the defacto standard for play if there are no district or local league bylaws.
  • These rules are in effect (override district and local bylaws) for All Star tournaments at the District, State, Regional, and National division levels.
  • Paperback versions of the Little League International rule book are provided with each MLL Softball team equipment bag for Minors AAA and Majors Divisions.

  • Institutes a new set of bylaws on April 1 every year. 
  • These bylaws outline more detail to specific rules of the Little League International rulebook.  
  • These rules are in effect for regular season Interlock play. Thus, these rules are typically used by MLL Softball Minors AA, AAA, and Majors divisions.

  • Institutes a new set of bylaws on April 1 every year. 
  • These bylaws outline more detail to specific rules of the Little League International rulebook.
