  • Only ONE additional gift card per GLL family is allowed at this time, there might be an opportunity to earn a second extra if we can't fill all the open shifts.

Board of Director Positions - 2019

As players move up in divisions or age out of the GLL program, it typically creates open positions on our Board of Directors.  We anticipate the following Board of Director positions opening up for 2019; please contact any current Board member if you would like more information about any of these positions.

  • VP Minors Baseball
  • VP Juniors Baseball
  • Umpire in Chief
  • Concessions Co-Manager

Easton Ghost X 30" 20oz  2-5/8"dia Bat Decertified

Effective May 3, USABaseball has decertified the Easton Ghost X 30", 20oz, 2-5/8" diameter bat; because the bat is no longer certified by USABaseball, it is no longer legal for Little League play.

If you own of these bats, please read the details HERE and HERE about what your next steps should be.


New Bat Rules for 2018

Little League International has adopted the new USABaseball Bat Standard (USABat) effective Jan 1, 2018.  This new bat standard covers all divisions of Little League except Softball and Seniors Baseball.  These changes are being mandated by Little League International, not by GLL.

All bats used in the Baseball Rookies, Minors, Majors and Juniors divisions will need to be inspected and stickered by GLL prior to use in 2018; umpires and Managers will be checking bats for these stickers prior to games.  If you still need to get your bat checked and stickered, please contact your team manager.

In summary, all non-wood bats used in the Baseball Rookies, Minors, Majors and Juniors divisions prior to the 2018 season are illegal starting Jan 1, 2018.  Update: Little League International amended their rules Feb 15 for the Baseball Juniors division, they are now allowing BBCOR certified bats.

Additional details can be found HERE.  If you still have bat questions, please contact Mike Wagner.


Sponsors

We are very fortunate to have a core group of loyal sponsors that have been with us for several years; we also have new sponsors join us each year.  It is through the generosity of these sponsors that we are able to continue to offer our little league program.  Please review our current list of sponsors and consider using them for your needs and services when possible.  If you are interested in sponsoring a team you can find details in the SPONSORSHIP section of the "Downloads" page of this website; or contact Jo Maehl by clicking HERE.


New Little League Fields Complex

We continue to make slow, but steady progress on developing our new Little League fields complex at the corner of River Bend and Lakefield Roads.  We continue to search for sponsors and contributions that can help us continue our build out progress; please contact Jerry Faust if you can help us out.

Please consider volunteering to help with this project; your efforts will be a legacy for our community for decades to come.  Click HERE for current information.
