Dear Western Families...

With registration open for the 2018 season, I wanted to share some important information with you regarding significant changes at Western for the coming season and beyond.

Please read this entire message carefully.

In previous years, we have offered the Intermediate (50/70) and Junior League/Bantam programs for players ages 13-15. These divisions served as an extension of our program, helping to bridge the gap between Little League and high school baseball.

Beginning in 2018, Western Duluth Little League will no longer offer the Intermediate (50/70) and Junior divisions. This decision was approved by our Board Of Directors in conjunction with several other area associations in response to declining participation and the desire for an enhanced tournament experience.

Another area association, Duluth 709 Baseball, is in the process of being created to serve players ages 13-15 in all of Duluth. This association will be part of the Gopher State baseball program. They will be contacting you with more information regarding their program.

We wish to emphasize that Western Duluth Little League, Inc. is in no way affiliated with Duluth 709 Baseball. We also wish to emphasize that the WDLL experience for players ages 5-12 will not change.

If you have already registered your player(s) for the Intermediate (50/70) Division or the Junior League with Western, you will receive a full refund. Online registration for these divisions has now been removed.

We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we work through this transition.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at or 218-393-1068.

Go Western!

Matt Peterson

Vice-President, Western Duluth Little League, Inc.
