"People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball.
I'll tell you what I do, --  I stare out the window and wait for spring." -
Rogers Hornsby

NEW RULE CHANGES NOT IN RULEBOOK

New rules were passed by the 26th Little League International Congress. Some of these rules were implemented April 9, 2014. These new rule changes are not in the 2014 rulebooks. The changes can be found here. Other changes will be implemented in 2015 and will appear in next years rulebooks.

DISTRICT 1 RAIN-OUT POLICY

Weather is variable in Anchorage from hour to hour and from location to location.  We can and do play baseball/softball in the rain in Alaska.  Most fields drain well and unless there is standing water on the field that cannot be abated, the games will proceed.   A decision will not be made to cancel or postpone a game due to rain until game time. The  Home Plate Umpire will make that decision.  Please make sure your teams show up ready to play.

An exception will be made for games involving teams traveling to or from the Mat-Su Valley or the Kenai Peninsula.  Those games may be cancelled in advance of traveling.  Please check with the host league before traveling.

STEROID ABUSE AMONG KIDS

The average age that a child begins taking dietary supplements is 10.8 years old. Few people realize that these products are unregulated – that no one is verifying that what’s on the label of the container is what is in that container. As a result, some are spiked with banned substances like anabolic steroids, stimulants, and other contaminants.

Little League parents, coaches and volunteers should be aware of the prevalence of the use of anabolic steroids and other Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs (APEDs) among today’s young athletes. The Taylor Hooton Foundation is proud to offer one of our education programs in partnership with Little League Baseball and Softball. This 30-minute eLearning course, hosted by Bob Costas, is a real eye-opener for parents and is essential for every coach that is leading young people in all age groups.
