Your TDLL Board is excited to announce registration for the 2023 little league season will open November 1st! Registration will be open online only at www.thedallesll.com from November 1st through January 15th.
TDLL residential boundaries are expanding this season. John Day River Little League has recently dissolved and TDLL Board is honored to expand our league to include some of the communities previously served by JDRLL. The new TDLL boundaries will expand to the west side of the John Day River and to South Wasco County. To the families joining TDLL this season, Welcome! Please know this transition does not automatically mean you will be traveling into The Dalles for practices. If enough athletes register in Sherman County, South Wasco County, or Dufur to form a team in a particular division, those teams will practice in their hometown. If, after registration is over, there are not enough athletes in a certain division you will have the option to join another team in the next closest town.
During the player offseason, our Boards have been working hard to roll out the logistics of this expansion. As always, change brings challenges and we will strive to keep the best interest of all athletes at all times. We ask for your patience and understanding this season as we develop the program. This transition will take time, but the overall focus is getting kids involved with baseball and both Boards believe this transition gives everyone the best opportunity to participate.
Opening Ceremonies will be on Saturday, April 15th, 2023 at Kramer Field in The Dalles. Team photos will also be taken on April 15th.
