How do I know what division my child should play in?
Information can be found on the Divisions page located here>>
For the Fall season it is recommended that your child plays in the division that they would play in following Spring. Since the Fall season is more developmental, this is typically the time that a player would move up to the next division.
What kind of bat does my player need?
Bats must conform to USA BAT standards and have the USA BAT manufacturer stamp on it. The length of a bat cannot exceed 32 inches. For more information please visit https://usabat.com/
Does MPLL offer financial assistance or need based scholarships?
Yes. MPLL does offer financial assistance and wants to make sure that every child that has a desire to play baseball is able to. Please email email@example.com for more information.
How do I volunteer to help out?
Well, thank you! We're glad you asked. Please just email firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to any of the Board Members to talk about it.
Is there a Lost and Found?
This is my first year in Tee Ball. What do I need to know?
Spring regular season games will start in late March and will conclude in late May. The Fall season typically starts in late August or early September and generally runs through the end of October. Weather permitting, practices start a couple of weeks prior to the first games. Tee Ball teams play one game per week on Saturdays and have one practice each week. Games are subject to a 1 hour time limit. Each player will need to bring a glove and helmet.
What happens now that we've registered?
We have lots to prepare once registration closes. Once coaches receive their rosters, we ask them to contact parents immediately to introduce themselves and inform you of your practice time and location.
Can you tell me what day my child will practice?
We allow our coaches to indicate their preference for practice days/times. The coach will contact you at the beginning of the season to tell you when practices begin and where.
Can you tell me where and when my child's games will be?
During the Spring and Fall, all divisions will have games on Saturdays. Typically, Tee Ball will be first at 8, 9, or 10:00 on Saturday mornings followed by Rookie, Coach Pitch, Minors and Majors. In addition, Coach Pitch, Minors and Majors will play some weeknight games. The majority of games will be held at McCabe Park or Elmington Park. Occasionally Coach Pitch, Minors and Majors may travel to play against another local Little League.
How are teams selected / formed?
Teams for Tee Ball, Rookies, and Coach Pitch are formed based on coach requests, player requests, school and other factors. Minors teams are formed based on player assessment score, coach request and player requests. MPLL attempts to accommodate coach and player requests for Tee-Ball through Minors divisions but does not make any guarantee that all requests can be accommodated. Majors teams are formed by a draft following player assessments.
