Little League has entered into an agreement with J.D. Palentine (JDP), another vendor for background checks, this time taking the local League out of the information gathering. All volunteers will need to do now is give our President their name and email address and a letter will be sent to them with a link that will allow them to complete the application online in just a few minutes. There are no forms, no emailing confidential information! Once done, volunteers will be on the JDP data base and always be recognized as a volunteer. Please read the link below for more information and FAQ regarding this change.

Closing Ceremonies were held on a sun drenched Saturday, June 2. This marks the end of the 2018 season. Fans and players enjoyed exciting championship games and $1 hotdogs from the snack bar.
Recognized were the graduating 12 year olds, and the newly crowned champions of each baseball division, as well as the second place teams. In addtion we also recognized the Wootten Award Player winners, Matteucci Award Manager winners and President's Award. T-ball and Farm players receive a participation trophy, and baseball division players receive an Alameda Little League t-shirt.
This is our way of giving participation trophies as a tradition for our younger players, while still giving the older kids something to remember for the season. Shirt for the graduating 12 year olds will be distributed through the Majors Division managers later this week.
A special thank you goes out to all of our volunteers, parents and players for making this such a successful season!

We love our dogs and a lot of folks like to bring them with them to the games. Just a friendly reminder that dogs are not permitted within the fenced spectator areas of the Majors and Minors fields. Elsewhere dogs are permitted and must be on a leash as per ARPD rules. Thank you for your cooperation.

As you may have heard at opening ceremonies, Alameda Little League has a great fundraiser starting up. You can purchase customized laser engraved bricks that will be installed on or around the snack bar. These bricks are similar to the custom bricks you may have seen at Disneyland. You can customize it to say your players name, your family name, your team name - whatever you'd like. This is your chance to leave a lasting memory at the Little League fields!
The cost is $100 for one brick/$150 for two. This fundraising effort is for the Alameda Little League General Fund only and will not go to any one team. All proceeds are used to keep registration fees as low as possible.
