MINOR LEAGUE - FAQ’s

Q: Do you keep score, and are there umpires?

A: Yes. Every manager maintains a scorebook. League standings are kept

to determine a regular season winner and to determine playoff games.

There is a home plate umpire and each manager from the previous game

umpires at first and third.

Q: What size field do they play on and where is the field?

A: All games are played on a regulation Little League field with a grass

infield and grass outfield. Fields are located at Miller Park. Bases are 60’

apart and the pitcher mound is 46’ from home plate.

Q: Can I have my child play on a team with their friends?

A: Not unless they are drafted on to that team. In this age group, player’s

skills are evaluated in a skills assessment clinic. Then a draft is held.

Q: Can I manage or coach a team?

A: Yes, if positions are available. If you would like to serve as a coach

please note that on your child’s spring registration form. Also please email

[email protected] All managers and coaches must be approved

by the Lynchburg Little League Board of Directors.

Q: Will my child get to play all the time?

A: Probably not all of the game, but our rules require the manager to play

each child at least 50% of each game.

Q: What are the volunteer requirements?

A: LLL is an all volunteer organization so there are many ways to volunteer.

Help is always needed with registration, team parenting, assisting with

pictures and opening day ceremonies, helping with post-season

tournaments, and working in the concession stand to name just a few of the

many ways to help support LLL.

Q: Why a draft? Sounds pretty serious.

A: A draft is the best way to evenly spread the various skill level of players

throughout the league. LLL holds a player skills assessment clinic. Each

child is required to swing a bat and run to first base, field a ground ball and

catch a fly ball. The player’s skills are assessed and the manager then

decides what child he would like to draft in the various rounds of the draft.

Q: What is the difference between the Major League and the Minor

League?

A: The Minor League serves the same purpose here at LLL as it

does in Professional baseball. It provides a venue for the player that is still

refining his baseball playing skills and may not quite be ready for the next

level of play.
