What is the Difference between Little League and Community Baseball Programs?
Little League is an officially licensed section of Little League of America. Your local organization pays charter fees each year to be part of it, and winning teams will have the chance to compete in the Little League World Series.
Community baseball and softball programs are just that. Usually the programs are volunteer-based, nonprofit organizations with a focus on learning about teamwork and playing games against other teams in the same community. The boundaries are usually more relaxed, meaning people who live in unincorporated areas can play. Or you can sign up to play in grandma’s city because she has the kids after school, instead of playing for only one little league option based on official city borders.
