MAJOR 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 one field umpire.

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. Games are played 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. Selection order in the draft is based on the where the team finished in the previous season.

Q: Can I manage or coach a team?

A: Yes, if positions are available. If you would to serve a coach please note that on your child’s registration form.

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, helping with postseason 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.
