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.
