Generally Williamsport is pretty strict on combinatons for major BB (10-12).
Might be difficult to get approval for two 3 team leagues to combine.
I know of a request to combine two 2 team leagues that was denied.

Generally it's much easier to get combinations approved in the other divisions, especially in softball.

A three team league that burns most of their 12's in 50/70 and uses their stud 11's for the 9/10/11 can have a legitimate need to combine in some people's eyes.

With the new three year age range for each tournament, new rules for dual rostering and growing popularity of the 9/10/11 tournament ( in my area) it gives each league a lot more flexibility in how they build their teams and also a choice in what team gets priority and gets built first.
Us old school people will always think 10/11/12 should be the priority team but many leagues are moving away from the allure of the LLWS dream.
