Casa Grande Little League: Welcome

***LAST CALL FOR KIDS 7-12 WHO WANT TO PLAY IN OUR MINORS/MAJORS BASEBALL OR SOFTBALL DIVISIONS*** 

For those who haven't heard or didn't know, our final evaluation for our kid pitch players ages 7-12 will be held on Wednesday, February 11th at 6:30.  If you have not yet registered your child to play, you can register him/her at the evaluation.  If you have registered your child already and did not attend the Saturday evaluation, you MUST (unless you child is a returning Majors player) attend the evaluation on February 11th.


For those of you who are new to this process, ALL kids who have signed up for our kid pitch divisions must attend one of the evaluations, with th
e exception of the kids who are returning to their Majors team from last season (in both baseball and softball). That is all boys and girls in baseball and softball who were not in the majors last season, must attend an evaluation.  If you are coming on the 11th, we will start taking check-ins around 6:00 p.m. and evaluations will start at 6:30 p.m., so please be there by 6:30 at the latest. Once you arrive, you will check in and your child will be given a number. We will then run five kids at a time through the evaluation going on a first come, first served basis. All evaluations will be conducted at the Little League fields.

Once evaluations are completed, the players will be put in their appropriate pool (AA Minors, AAA Minors, or Majors for baseball and Minors or Majors for softball.) Please keep in mind that all 12 year olds must play in the Majors and all 7 and 8 year olds must play in one of the Minors divisions. The following week, CGLL will hold the drafts for both baseball and softball after which you will be getting a call from your coach to start practicing. Practices will start toward the end of February and games will start at the end of March. The season will end with a championship tournament in all divisions that will run through the first week of June, so please note those dates on your calendar so that you can plan on your child playing though the end of the tournament.

We are excited to have another great CGLL season, so if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at anytime.  

Little League is instituting a new Age Determination Rule for baseball for the 2015 season (softball is still determined by the player's age as of December 31, 2014.) Please view this chart to determine how old your child will be for the purpose of Little League during the 2015 season. 

 


                    

                                ****** 2014 ALL-STARS ******

 
This year CGLL fielded All-Star teams in seven divisions, and once the dust had settled from the District tournaments we were able to announce FIVE District Championship teams!!!

* 11-12 Softball * District Champions * Went 1-2 at the State Level in Maricopa 
* Senior Softball - represented CGLL well against some tough competition at the District level
 
 
                                         *** We are proud of ALL of our All-Stars! *** 
 
The dedication shown by the players, families, managers, coaches, umpires, board members, and other volunteers has been outstanding!  
 
Casa Grande also hosted several District All-Star Tournaments this year, which required a great deal of preparation and manpower to ensure that tournaments were run professionally and were enjoyed by all of the teams and families who participated from District 4.  THANK YOU to the countless volunteers involved, as well as the City of Casa Grande, District 4 LL officials, and all of our sponsors for helping to ensure another year of success for CGLL's teams and tournaments.




Are you ready to help shape the future of CGLL?

Our Board has been hard at work since being elected in September 2014 to prepare for our 2015 season, but we cannot do it alone. The more people pitching in, the better job we can do for the kids and our community!  Please consider what YOUR contribution can be toward making CGLL's 63rd season a fun and memorable one for everyone.  Check our Volunteer Information page for more information.  The success of any youth sports program is dependent on the efforts of people dedicated enough to do more than watch from the sidelines.

WHAT DOCUMENTS WILL YOU BRING TO REGISTRATION?

As you get ready to register for Casa Grande Little League, make sure you take a minute to get your documents ready to go.  For first-time players in our League, we will need you to bring your birth certificate to verify your age and eligibility, as well as one proof of residency (check which documents you can bring HERE).  Returning players do not need proof of age (we already checked it!), but will need proof of residency unless you played last year AND are still at the same address.  We need a REGISTRATION FORM for each player, as well as a MEDICAL RELEASE FORM in case of emergency.  If you have any questions, contact us!
