Current News

Registration for 2019 Season Now Open!

Registration for the Bellevue Thunderbird 2019 baseball and softball seasons is now open. Please click on the "Register Now" link below to register today. Registrations for levels above T-Ball prior to January 15, 2019 will receive a $25 discount on each sign-up if you use the code "BTLL2019" at checkout!

Player Evaluations

All players registering for AAA through Majors are required to attend player evaluations. We may or may not require players at upper divisions to attend as well, though for the past few years this has not been necessary. Evaluations for players age 9 through 12 (and 8-year olds wishing to play up to AAA) will take place on Sunday, January 27, 2019, at the Bellevue College gymnasium. More specific information about times will follow as we get closer to that date.

The age determination date for baseball is August 31 of the year in which the season is being played. The age determination date for softball remains December 31 of the prior year.

Please remember that Little League requires a player to either LIVE within the league boundaries, or GO TO SCHOOL within the league boundaries. There is an exception to this rule if a player has played in the league in the past, but the family (or your child's school) has moved. If there is a change of address but wish your child to continue to play for Thunderbird, we definitely can work with that, and truly want your child to continue to play with his or her league friends.

For ANY questions regarding participant eligibility, boundary issues, age or division confusion, or anything else, please contact us at registrar@bellevuethunderbird.com.

Please log on and register soon, we're looking forward to a great 2019!


State Champions!

The 8/9/10 All Star softball team played 9 games of near flawless softball to earn the Washington State crown. This year Thunderbird combined with Bellevue East and Bellevue West Little Leagues to field a highly competitive team. At Dodd Field in Issaquah the girls never left the winner's bracket, winning all of their games to earn the District 9 banner, and also earning them the right to travel to Spokane for the State tournament. The girls faced a tough Mukilteo team first, whom they narrowly defeated in a hard fought game. That win kept the Bellevue girls in the winner's bracket, where they then defeated teams from Whidbey Island and Woodinville. Meanwhile Mukilteo battled their way through the loser's bracket and won their way into the Championship. The suspense was high as Mukilteo won the first game 8-4, but Bellevue needed only one win to grab the crown. In the final game, the girls rallied with stellar pitching, hitting and base running and won handily 12-0 in four innings. It was a fantastic finish!

Great job and huge congratulations to all the players, and many thanks to Manager Joon Huh and Coaches Andre Barashkoff and Erik Broughton for all your time, energy and enthusiasm!


9/10 All Star Baseball Team Makes it to Final Game

Our 10U baseball All-stars had an amazing and improbable run through the District 9 tournament losers bracket. They lost their first game, but then won 5 straight to win out in the losers bracket. With two teams left in the tourney, Thunderbird played their hearts out last night against Sammamish to end in a second place finish. We love these kids! They have guts, determination, and made the season so fun for their coaches. Congratulations, you should be proud of the way you played!

BTLL Youth Scholarship Program

Dear Members of the Bellevue Thunderbird Community:

We are pleased to continue the Bellevue Thunderbird Little League Youth Scholarship Program for the 2017 season. This program provides recognition to BTLL youth volunteers 12+ years old who support our softball and baseball programs. At the end of each season, we will award a number of scholarships to deserving individuals who:

  1. Contribute to BTLL
  2. Act as role models on and off the field
  3. Are enrolled in school and in good academic standing
  4. Are registered volunteers with BTLL

BTLL's goals are to encourage youth volunteerism and recognize the contribution of our youth to BTLL. The maximum scholarship award available to any eligible individual in a given year is $1,000. Recipients of BTLL Youth Scholarships will also receive a letter of recognition from BTLL and a certificate that can potentially be included in college applications.

We are excited about this program and hope to see strong participation from our youth in various capacities, including help in winter training, supporting opening day, and umpiring.

Sincerely,
