Tee Ball:

Players (ages 4-6) that is specifically designed to provide a foundation and introduction to baseball and softball that is grounded in fun, fitness, and fundamentals. Consisting usually of one practice and one game per week. Over the course of the season, coaches and parents will engage in a series of lessons utilizing up to 40 activities that include skills, drills and plenty of physical activity.

Tee Ball: Players are 4 or 5 year olds (turning 4 or 5 ) see Little League Age Chart for "Baseball Age " Tee Ball is for boys and girls. During the second half of the season, players will have the opportunity to hit off a tee or an underhand pitch from a coach. Games are played on a smaller, 50-foot baseball diamond, with approximately 8 kids per team and no outfielders. If the parents and coaches feel a 6 year old with little or no experience would have a better experience playing at this level then the child would be placed at this level.

Rookies:

Players are 6 to 8 year olds "Coach Pitch"  Rookies is for boys and girls. During the second half of the season, players will have the opportunity to experience player pitch at practices this is especially important for children “moving up” to Minors the following season. The field size is 60-foot base path and pitching distance is at the discretion of the coaches. There are approximately 9-12 kids per team.

I want to be the coach of a Rookie or Tee Ball team for the season. What do I need to do?

You must apply and register & submit a Volunteer Application; all of the information on that form Must be filled out. After submission a background check is completed and All coaches will participate in a board interview. Our league's manager selection committee will make the final decision on who will manage a team. Head coaches will be notified by March . Upon notification, coaches will be required to participate in a coaching training session. Coaches returning to the league are required to resubmit all information every season; no position is guaranteed and no coach is "tenured."

I see teams and players practicing, but I have not been contacted. Did my child not get on a team?

Don't worry! Rookie and Tee Ball practices start about a week after the Majors and Minors teams. Please contact the Coaching Coordinator or a board member and we will contact your coach. You can expect to be contacted by a Coach in mid-March.

How do I ensure my child will be playing with his/her friend?

On the registration form, please write on the back of the form what “buddy” you want your child to play with. Family and car-pool request are a priority. Every effort will be made to accommodate buddy requests; however there are no guarantees.

How are teams formed?

Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Players are placed on the roster for their age and ability. Buddy Requests are accommodated where possible.

When will practice begin?

Practices are scheduled to begin in late February and are held at The Montague Elementary School and weather permitting at the local baseball fields in our area. Each head coach determines the frequency of practices.

What time and how long can I expect practice to last?

Practice is conducted at the head coach's discretion. Before games start, practices are usually twice a week for about 1 hour for Tee Ball and 1 hour and a half for Rookie ball. Once the games start, practices will probably be once a week. Practices for Minors, Majors, Intermediate, & Junors is usually two days a week and are usually two hours 

When do games start, and how often are they held?

Games will start in mid-April. Tee Ball, Rookie, Minor, Major, Intermediate (50/70) & Juniors games will typically run on one day during the week and also are on Saturdays.

What supplies or equipment do you suggest my son/daughter need?

It is recommended that all players should have a baseball mitt and baseball shoes (rubber cleats). Boys will also need a protective cup (optional at tee-ball division). Many players prefer to use their own baseball bat and helmet, although the league has extras available that the players may use. Some players also like to have an equipment bag to carry their belongings but that isn't required. Players will need to purchase their own baseball pants (all levels), & (socks tee-ball & Rookie level) and a belt (Majors & above), which are typically color-coordinated with the team jersey color. (See your team's head coach for specific colors, styles, etc.) The league will provide a jersey and hat for all players. We have a supply of pants and other equipment for any family that has hardship-purchasing equipment. MLL wants every child to be able to play, contact your coach or a board member.

How are refunds determined?

The refund policy for MLL is determined annually by the board. Costs are incurred by the league for uniforms, equipment, charter fees and other expenses that are based on the number of participants registered. No refunds are given after the first field practice.

If we have a concern, question or request during the season, what is the best way to handle it and to whom should we speak?

We encourage you to first thoughtfully speak with the people or parties involved if you have a problem or concern. If that is not possible, the player agent should be contacted. You may also address questions and suggestions to the head coach, assistant coach, League President or any board member.

We moved outside of the MLL boundaries in the past year.child has always played for MLL in the past. May he/she continue playing for MLL even though we no longer reside within MLL boundaries?

If your child still attends a Montague School District school, then yes. If not, a waiver needs to be filled out by the player agent and signed by the president. The waivers are normally granted as long as your child played for MLL the previous season , if you miss a season and apply the next then the waiver would probably not be granted and you would need to join the League in which you reside.

My child lost his hat. Is there a way that I can get a replacement?

Due to the Expense We generally buy a few extra amount of hats needed for the kids and coaches. However, your head coach may or may not have extras that you may purchase If not, we can give you the vendor information so you may purchase an extra hat if you wish (Note special orders are expensive) We recommend you write your childs name inside the hat as soon as possible.

My child has a health issue that I would like keep confidential. To whom should I speak and how do I know the medical information will be held confidential? Can anyone see the medical release forms?

We encourage you to confide in the head coach and/or the player agent. Let them know that this information is very personal and should not be repeated unless there is a medical necessity. The player agent and coaches read medical Release forms. They are kept in the coaches ASAP (safety manual) in the event of an emergency or injury. And brought to every practice and game, and kept in their personel equipment bag.

 What is the difference between Minors, Majors, & Juniors?

How do I know what division I should register my child to play in?

Minor league level: Is an instructional level. One year of Rookies (age permitting) is required before moving to the Minors. This is the first level that “player pitch” is required. This is quite a challenge for some children to get accustomed to at first. At this level pitching, catching and base players become more important and it becomes competitive for these positions, not say the other positions are not as important because they are. For more information on league age, go to our websites hand out section and click on the “age determination chart”. League Age: primarily 9 and 10 year olds per the “Revised” age determination charts that came out every year.

Hitting: Players will be hitting player pitch for the entire game. Field Size: The field size is 60-foot base path and pitching is at 46 feet.

Team Formation: Players will participate in assessments/tryouts and be drafted onto a team Competition: Regular season games 12-14 games. We play Inter-district with approx. six other Little Leagues within District twenty and small postseason All-Star tournament and Fall- Ball If your child is not age 9 by the age cutoff and would like to "play up" in the Minor division, he must pass a safety test: Contact the Registrar for more information on how to register to play up.

The Major-league level:  Is a very competitive level that continues to stress fundamental baseball and introduce more advance baseball techniques and strategies. League Age: 11-12 year olds; some highly skilled ten year olds may be able to play at this level if they perform well enough during assessments.

Hitting:

Players will be hitting off of a player pitch for all innings.

Field Size:

The field size is 60-foot base path and pitching is at 46 feet Team Formation: Players will participate in assessments / tryouts and be drafted onto a team. Majors can also “play up” to the Intermediate Level also known as 50/70 this is a larger field with a fifty foot pitching distance and seventy foot baselines Competition: Regular season games 14-16 games, (inter- district) games, All-stars tournament play inter-district, then regional, then state, and then national depending on how well the team does (these are the kids that can go on to play in the LL World Series) there is also a small postseason Fall-Ball.

The Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division

It was introduced in January, 2010, as a pilot program for 12- and 13-year-olds which utilizes a 50-foot pitching distance and 70-foot base paths. The division, which is new division of Little League Baseball in 2013 for players league-age 11-13 with postseason tournament opportunities, including a World Series, offers a transition for players between the standard Little League field size (46-foot pitching distance and 60-foot base paths) and the Junior/Senior/Big League field size (60-foot, 6-inch pitching distance and 90-foot base paths). Many of the Junior League rules will be used such as runners being permitted to lead off bases, runners may attempt to steal at any time, and allowing an on-deck batter. The culmination of the International Tournament is the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball World Series, featuring teams from around the world. All expenses for the teams advancing to the World Series (travel, meals and housing) are paid by Little League International. Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in this newest division of Little League. After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league. 

The Junior League Baseball Division: Is a program for boys and girls ages 12-14, using a conventional 90-foot diamond with a pitching distance of 60 feet, 6 inches. Modified diamond dimensions may be used during the regular season. The local league has an option to choose a Tournament Team (or "All Stars") of 12-14-year-olds from within this division (and/or from within the Senior League Division), and the team may enter the International Tournament.

Hitting:

Players will be hitting off of a playerpitch for all innings.

Field Size:

The field size is expanded at this level. The field size is 90-foot baseline and pitching is a sixty feet six inch distance.

Team Formation:

Players will participate in assessments / tryouts and be drafted onto a team. Juniors can also play down to the intermediate level that has a fifty-foot pitching distance and a seventy-foot baseline, this level is primarily for 13 year olds in their first year at this level to get them accustomed to the larger field.

Competition:

Regular season games 14-16 games, (inter- district) games, All-stars tournament play inter-district, then regional.

My son is going to participate in assessments/tryouts, but I do not know if he will be drafted by coaches onto a Majors or Minors team.Which division should I register him for? What happens if I register him for majors and he is selected to a Minors team (or vice versa)?

You may register him for any of the three divisions in the proper age group, unless your child is 13 years old. All 13-year-olds must register and play in the Junior division (see the LL “Age Determination Chart” for more details). If your child is chosen for a division that is different from the one in which you registered, then you will be contacted by the Player Agent, he will explain why the League believes your child would have a better experience playing at that level. However, if you do not want your child to be considered for a Majors team and would rather have him play in the Minors division only, please note this in the notes section of the online registration or contact the Player Agent.

What happens during assessments/tryouts? What skills will each child be asked to demonstrate?

During the assessments/tryouts, each candidate will be given the opportunity to: (1) hit/bunt, (2) field fly balls, (3) field ground balls, (4) throw, and (5) run around the bases. Assessments/tryouts will be conducted in the presence of The Player Agent & all head coaches and some assistant coaches, who shall observe the ability of each candidate. All player candidates (ages 9 through 12) must attend a session. assessments if requested.

Why is there a requirement of one year at the Rookies level in order to play Minors level baseball?

Over the last several years, we observed and received feedback from managers and coaches that the majority of 9 year olds coming out of Coach Pitch (Rookie division) are taking too long to adjust or not ready to face the faster pace of Minor league. At the end of the Rookie season players practice player pitch / hit. We feel player development at this level helps player's skills, confidence, and overall enjoyment for the game. The League strongly suggest your child play “fall-ball” his last year in Rookies, at that time they would be moved to the Minors level to prepare them for the following season in a player pitch type game. Fall-Ball is less competitive and is primarily for children to adjust to the next level and just play for fun It is very important and a gradual progression of going from Coach Pitch to Player pitch.

What equipment should my child bring to assessments/tryouts?

We recommend that players bring their baseball glove, bat, helmet, baseball style cap, jacket or sweatshirt. A supply of bats and helmets are provided if the player does not own these items.

Will assessments/tryouts still be held if it rains or snows?

Yes, assessments/tryouts will be held even if it rains or snows. Unless conditions do not allow. Dress for the weather. If there is lightning, then the sessions will be rescheduled. Is it guaranteed that every child who tries out will make a team? Yes, every child who tries out is drafted onto a team.

Are assessments/tryouts different for Majors, Minors candidates?

No, assessments / tryouts are the same for all Majors and Minors candidates. All Majors and Minors candidates must attend assessments / tryouts if requested.

What should we do if there is a coach who our family strongly feels would not be a good fit for our child? Can we let someone know in advance so that our child does not get drafted to that team?

If you have a serious concern, please speak with the player agent and explain your concerns. The player agent will discuss the situation with the Board, and the best interests of the child will be taken into consideration.

When will we find out what team our child is placed on?

You should hear from a coach within three days after the draft occurs. If you have not heard from a coach after three days, please contact the player agent. If you cannot get in touch with the Player Agent please contact the League President.

When will practices begin and how often will they be held?

This year, practices will begin in Early March for Majors and Minors and are held at The Montague  School and various baseball fields in our area depending upon the weather. Each head coach determines the frequency of practices.

What should we do if we think our 13-year-old is not ready to play in the Juniors division? We feel he is better suited to the Major division. May he play in the Majors division even though he is league age 13?

Exceptions can only be made with written approval from the district administrator, and only if approved at the local league level by the board of directors and the parent of the candidate. (This exception is rarely granted)

How much playing time do players get in the Minors division vs. the Majors division?

Every player on a team roster will participate in each game for a minimum of six (6) defensive outs and bat at least one (1) time. The Minors division is considered an instructional level and coaches try to give equal playing time. The Majors division is considered a more competitive level and playing time may not be equal, but all players will participate for at least the minimum amount required. When do games begin? How many games will there be this season?

How long does the season run?

Regular season games for all divisions begins in late April and ends in early June.  Junors & Majors teams usually play 14-16 games and Rookies & Minors teams play 12+ games, Tee- Ball plays 10 games, when the regular season is over, the District’s All-Star tournament for Minors and up divisions take place in mid June with a minimum of three games being played The season can go longer depending on how well the teams do.

What are the All-Star Tournaments?

These Minor &Major league level tournaments they are district-wide tournaments where one or more teams from each of the 15 leagues within District Twenty are invited to compete. They compete at an inter-district level first then district wide, statewide depending upon how well they do. Only Major & Junor level can advance to the national level, this is where the teams for the “Little League World Series” come from!

If we have a concern, question or request during the season, what is the best way to handle it and to whom should we speak?

We encourage you to first thoughtfully speak with the people or parties involved if you have a problem or concern. The player agent may also be contacted. Questions and suggestions may be addressed to the head coach, assistant coach, player agent, president or any board members. All are welcome to attend our Board Of Directors Monthly Meetings also.

How many All-star teams will there be?

Usually MLL has only one All-Star team at each level. Sometimes we combine with other Leagues to form a team because of lack of players in both Leagues, this is done with a waiver from the District Administrator.

How will All-star players be selected this year?

The local rules state players are voted in by their peers and coaches; see the local rules for more specific information.

When will the names of the all-star players be announced?

Mid – late June.

How long does the all-star season run?

The District All-Star tournament runs through mid-July. The teams that win the District All-Star Tournament proceed to the State All-Star Tournament. The furthest that the 9/10-year-old and 11-year-old all-star teams may go is the State Level. In the 11-12 Year Old Majors All-Star division, the winner of the state tournament proceeds to a Regional Tournament and potentially then to National and International Tournaments. The International All-Star Tournaments are held in Williamsport in August.

Where can I obtain a copy of the 2019 Little League Rules? How do I obtain a copy of the 2019 Local MLL Rules?

The 2019 Little League Rule Books are provided to all of the head coaches. If you would like to obtain a personal copy, speak to your league president to ask if any extra copies are available. You may also be able to order one at www.littleleague.org. The 2019 Inter-District Local Rules may be found on the MLL website in the handouts section. Note these rules are adopted by the League Presidents at the beginning of the spring season and do not apply after the regular season ends.
