Good news for some baseball hopefuls

Little League International has adopted (pun intended) a change in procedure which allows more children to participate in their programs. It used to be that a birth document could be sole proof of age only if it was issued within one year of the child's birth. Obviously this rules out many internationally adopted children (including Kevin)! Under the old procedures we'd have to provide further proof of his age even when we have (which we don't yet have but we will later this year) his U.S.-issued birth certificate.

The new procedure allows for a birth document to be sole proof of age if it was issued in the country in which the child is participating.

Woohoo! Score one for Little League.
