DId leagues not add LA 4 year olds to their league when the change was made to allow them?

I like getting them into the league early, but when they pushed back the date, some are 3 and don't turn four until the summer. And some parents only want to play noon games on weekends, which of course not everyone can do.

But there are issues at every age. I'm really asking because I found out some local league don't offer anything for this age group, and we are getting more requests that they play in our league, (not a lot, but some).

We allowed it right off the bat, but there are many neighboring leagues that do not allow it.
We get similar requests every year or two from a LA 4 yr old who wants to play in our league because their town says LA 5 and up.

Our league has a whiffle ball program for 3-4 year olds, since parents expressed interest.  Its only an hour a week for about six weeks, and its run by some of our 'graduated' high school baseball players.  Its a nice introduction to baseball and I think appreciated.

The town does a baseball squrts program that used to be for ages for 2-7, though they may have cut back the older ages. And I didn't see them on the fields this spring yet. (In the past I helped prepare the fields for them since the town didn't always, so I saw them. It is usually about 5-10 kids).
