Monday, December 8
Special Board Meeting on Birth Date Eligibility

Scituate Little League will be conducting a special board meeting on Tuesday Dec. 16th 8:00 PM at the G.A.R. Hall.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss and vote on the by-laws related to the change in birth date eligibility that has been mandated by Little League Baseball.

The changes in birth date eligibility will affect many players in the league, particularly those ages 5-9. Due to this change by LLB, Scituate LL will have to revise its "Play with Grade" by law. Any and all parents are welcome to attend with questions and/or feedback on these rule changes.


 

 



2015 REGISTRATION



Scituate Little League will be conducting a second walk in registration on January 31st from 8 AM - 12 Noon at the High School Gym.  On-line registration (minor fee added to registration fee) will open in late December or early January.

LITTLE LEAGUE HAS CHANGED BIRTHDATE REQUIREMENTS FOR AGES 4-9. PLEASE READ BELOW.

On Friday Nov. 21st , Little League Baseball announced that “effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 4-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in a local Little League program and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the reminder of their Little League Baseball career. Players will still be assigned to a division based on local league divisional structure.”

This is a change that was planned to be completely implemented in 2018, but now will be “phased in” over the next three years.

See www.littleleague.org/learn/newsletters/Little_League_Notebook/2014/novllnotebook/newplayerage.htm  nouncement from Little League. 

THIS HAS AN IMPACT ON MANY PLAYERS AND FOR WHAT LEAGUE THEY WILL BE ELIGIBLE.  Scituate Little League must abide by the age determination change.  Please see the table below for the new eligibility dates:

* The "Play with Grade" Scituate Little League by-law has been eliminated.  Players may make a one time request to play up one year as long as that would not conflict with LLB age requirements for each league.  Once the players plays up he/she will remain with that age level for the remainder of  participation in Scituate Little League.
 
Players who "played up" in 2014 will remain with their respective age level and not have an opportunity to "play down". 


Registering early helps the league pick the number of teams (and players per team) as well as guarantees a spot for your player.

Questions - please email info@scituatelittleleague.org.  

We encourage all players and parents to register early.  Due to field availability, sign-ups will be based on a first come first serve basis.  The league will try to accommodate late registrations but cannot guarantee a position in the league.




Scituate Little League Raffle

Scituate Little League held their annual raffle last month to raise funds for field improvements.

Tickets are distributed to each of the league's 54 teams from Juniors to T-ball teams. Players are asked to sell a minimum of 10 raffle tickets.

For the past several years, the Grand Prize for the raffle has been The Trip of a Lifetime: an “all expense” trip with a choice of a number of exciting destinations like MLB, NBA, or NHL All-Star games, Pro Bowl, BCS Championship, US Open Golf or Tennis, Carnival Cruise, St Thomas, Disney World. Scituate Little League's last two winners have opted to take a trip to St. Thomas. Second place prize for the raffle is an iPad Mini and third prize is $250 in cash.

This year's winning ticket was sold by Sean Feehily in our Junior League to Nick Mavro of Boston, a business colleague of Sean's father Mike Feehily. Mike has been a staunch supporter of Scituate Little League with many years contributing his time and talents to our Board of Directors, Coaching, and always helps sell many, many raffle tickets.

Our 2nd prize winner was Roberta Villani of Scituate and our 3rd prize winner was the DeCoste family, also of Scituate.

The funds raised by the raffle are used to fund field improvements. Scituate Little League takes on the responsibility of maintaining 11 baseball fields to provide their members with quality playing conditions. Some recent improvements funded with our fundraising efforts include:

  • Sheds for all fields (Cudworth, Gates, St. Mary’s)
  • Protective fences at Cudworth and Gates fields
  • New Scoreboard for Greenbush
  • New batting cages for Greenbush.

This year’s raffle netted approximately $6,500 for Scituate Little League after expenses for prizes. Thank you to all players, parents, and teams that supported the raffle.
