Gaylord Little League





Players will be asked to throw, catch, and hit.  Pitchers will be asked to pitch a few.  Coaches are required to attend and teams will be drafted following the skills assessment.  PLAYERS YOUNGER THAN 11 BY THE LITTLE LEAGUE AGE CHART THAT REQUEST TO MOVE UP TO THIS DIVISION  MUST ATTEND OR THEY WILL NOT BE PLACED ON A MAJORS TEAM.  Keep checking the website for more info!!

This division will include some traveling for the girls Major teams. Boys Major teams typically play all home games as there are more boys teams to play.  Attendance to games and practices will be required. Your coach will ask that you participate with him/her 3 times a week. This could be 3 games or 3 practices or any combination of the 2 depending on game schedules. We realize things come up but with technology at our fingertips coaches should know as soon as you know if your child is not going to make a practice or game.  At this level, parents might be asked to volunteer to umpire the games.  This will depend on the availability of umpires on any given day. Please consider if a coach asks you.  There is an "Umpire Resources" tab on our website if you need to learn the rules of the game.  Remember, the success of our league depends on parents like you volunteering.

Some basics you should expect your child to get out of playing Majors are:

1.       Pitching & Catching fundamentals

2.       Position specific fundamentals

3.       Communicating with your team during the game

4.       TEAMWORK & SPORTSMANSHIP on and off the field

Playing the game:

1.       Have team meet at the ball park 30 minutes prior to game time for warm-ups.

2.       Have your lineups ready 10 minutes prior to game time.

3.       Umpire is scheduled by the home team, and the home team will supply a new game ball.

4.       Be aware of the time... if you are the first of two games, do not start another inning if it will likely not finish before the second game is                 supposed to start.

5.       Three outs or five runs in an inning ends the inning.

8.       Line kids up after the game to slap hands say good game.

9.       Have two volunteers (NOT COACHES) rake the infield.

During the game please be supportive to the coach, players, and volunteers. Please ask the coach if they need help with anything.

**These rules are consistent with what other leagues are currently doing as well. However, house rules can apply so please keep this in mind when traveling to other fields. The coaches and umpires will review the rules prior to the game. If you have questions or concerns regarding how a game is being played please speak with your coach. We are representing Gaylord Little League and would appreciate if you and your child conduct yourself using manners and sportsmanship. Everyone who participates with Little League does on a volunteer basis!
