In this episode of "The President's View", GLL President Mark Donovan reintroduces himself to the league and discusses exciting new changes to Minors AAA and Majors Baseball and Softball for 2020.
Starting in 2020, players who are drafted to a team in Minors AAA or Majors will remain with that team until they age out of the league or move up to the next level. For example, if a Majors team drafts a 10 year-old in March of 2020, that player will stay on the same team in 2021 and 2022 before aging out of the league. This will help players build chemistry and cameraderie over the course of their little league experience. Most players returning to AAA and Majors in 2020 will remain with the same team they played on in 2019. Any player that does not wish to stay on the same team may leave that team if that is the family's choice. More details will be forthcoming as we move forward into player evaluations and drafting.
