Trading Players Within the Local Little League

Trades can only be conducted AFTER the draft, and before the 14th day of the regular season. If all of the following parties do not agree to the trade, then there cannot be a trade:
  • The managers of both teams
  • The player agent
  • The board of directors by majority vote

The board must decide if the trade is for justifiable reasons. Just exactly what is “justifiable” is totally up to the local Little League’s board of directors.

Trades must be player for player only. Example: Two managers could trade players they have just drafted, pending the approval of the player agent and board of directors.

The player agent must monitor trades closely to prevent manipulation of the system.

There can be no trades between teams in separate charters or divisions. For example, a team in Downtown National Little League could not trade with a team in Downtown American Little League, even if both leagues are operated by one board of directors.
