Replying to BB vs SB age

Did get one parent wanted SB for her son this fall, but that is because she wanted a softer ball. She was happy with the t-balls we use.

Don't have problems with boys since no one has boys SB!

You had me convinced.

Interesting, I always read it as being for Baseball and Softball, not girls and boys.
I really wish that both cut-offs were Dec. 31st, like they were for that one year a few years back.
And I am always explaining why Little League goes by ages, not grades as many other (non-national) sports do.

My advice, go "by the book", that is, the age cutoffs are for girls and boys not for Softball and Baseball.

Do leagues do anything different to take into account the different SB and BB age cutoffs? Or do you just go straight by the book without a general adjustment?
Not an issue going from BB to SB to stay, which is most common for us SB only goes down to 7, but if you are moving a 9-10 girl to BB, she could end up in 11-12. (Which just happened.)
And 3 turning 4-year-old girls would not be eligible for SB, but are eligible for BB. (Girls mature earlier than boys, so that seems backwards at that age.).
Is there a reason for the difference? Are we overthinking it?
