It's Fall Ball Time!
2015 9.10 Champions

While Major League Baseball wraps up its season with playoffs and the World Series, in District 32 we're already underway with our new season – the Fall Ball season.

Dozens of teams in different divisions from most of our leagues will enjoy the fun and instruction of District 32's Interleague Fall Ball Season, with a chance to play teams from both within their league and neighboring leagues. In addition, other leagues have "in-house" programs not part of the District interleague.

In either case, this season, which runs on Sunday afternoons from September 13 until November 15, is designed to give kids a chance to learn new positions, work on new skills, and just get out and enjoy the game of baseball. It is especially helpful for kids expecting to make the transition to a higher division in the next spring season. All of this is accomplished in a low-key, instructional atmosphere, which gives kids a chance to try new things without feeling the pressure of scores and standings.

To see a complete list of schedules and rules for the 2015 District 32 Fall Ball season, simply click on the Handout below. Come out and enjoy a game!

Vendor Show Signals Start of 2016 Season
LLWS 2015 logo

On Wednesday, November 4, our annual vendor show will give all leagues in District 32 an opportunity to better plan for the 2016 season. Many companies and suppliers will have displays, providing a great way for leagues to visit with vendors from a wide variety of categories, all in one place and all in one night. There will be apparel suppliers, photographers, equipment companies, snack bar suppliers and a variety of fundraising ideas. The show will run from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Holiday Inn-Miramar (9335 Kearny Mesa Rd., just east of I-15 and Miramar Rd.)

This is the only show of its kind within our District, and is open to anyone interested. Board members should invite friends from all of our district leagues. Lots of good information will be shared and new vendors contacted. As always, we also look forward to some great door prizes donated by the participating vendors!


Challenger Division – The Best Part of Little League!
LL Website Logo

Come See A Challenger Game Soon!

The Challenger Division of Little League Baseball is a program for mentally and physically disabled youth to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. The program is available to any special needs child between the ages of 5-18, or who is in an ongoing high school program up to the age of 22.

More than the skills of baseball are learned through the experience. The value of the Little League Challenger Division is found in the proven therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports, the strengthening of participants’ self-esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play, and the disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play which are hallmarks of the Little League program.

The philosophy of the Little League Challenger Division is to provide the framework so that every Little League program may offer a structured, athletic activity for all youth in the community. Challenger Division participants learn not only the fundamentals of baseball, but also how it feels to be just like other children pulling together as a team, being cheered, and earning awards for their achievements.

Currently, District 32 has Challenger Division teams in four of its leagues (Mira Mesa, Rancho Penasquitos, Peninsula and University City), with hopes to expand the program to all of the other leagues in our District as well.


A Note From Our District Administrator...
LL Pledge Logo

Hello, I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Lisa LaPage and I am the District Administrator for California District 32. I have two boys, Christopher and Stephen, who both played Little League from T-Ball through the Senior Division. Those of you who know me know I attempted Big League with them… that didn’t get me anywhere!

I first started volunteering for Little League as a scorekeeper for my brother’s team back in the 70’s. (Do not attempt to calculate ages.) My dad was the manager and so, of course, I became the scorekeeper. My dad continued on after my brother and I got out of Little League and became the President of Balboa Little League. He was the President when Balboa introduced their first Challenger Division Team – that program is still strong and now resides at Clairemont Hilltoppers Little League.

As my children became old enough to play Little League, I started volunteering again. I started out as the Team Mom and moved “up” to Scorekeeper. Then … it happened, “real volunteering.” I became a bonafide board member for Mira Mesa West Little League – Head Scorekeeper was my first title! Then my second title was Player Agent, then Vice President, then finished up a season as President!

In 2003, the District Administrator Jim Gerstenslager, asked me to be on his staff as an auxiliary member. How hard could that be? OH – those of you that “started” as auxiliary members know the answer to that! I served on the District Staff while continuing to serve on my local league board. In 2006, I was elected as the District Administrator by the Presidents of District 32 – that penalty is still pending!!

All kidding aside, I take Little League seriously – I believe 100% in the program and what Little League stands for. Our children in all of our communities deserve to have hard-working volunteers involved in a program that has every child’s interest and well-being at heart. We, through baseball, teach all of the children Character, Courage and Loyalty – not to mention Respect, Discipline, Teamwork and Sportsmanship.

This can not be accomplished without the hundreds of thousands of volunteers who dedicate time (which they don’t have) to a program they all believe in. That, my friend, is what this is all about. The volunteers inside Little League are rare characters (sadly enough) – they unconditionally give their time, knowledge and sometimes money to the youngsters who will one day rule our world!

To all the Presidents, Board Members, Umpires, Managers, Coaches, Team Moms and Team Dads, Scorekeepers, Carpool Drivers, Cheerleaders and just plain Parents, THANK YOU for participating in the best program in the world for our children. My kids wouldn’t have had the experience without you – and for that I am humbly grateful.

Lisa LaPage

Little League Pledge????
LL Pledge Logo

Yes, the Little League pledge - In touring our local leagues there are still several that do not recite the pledge...  Question is why not?  I have yet to see the Junior Division say the pledge before the game.  Please - Remind our children why they are playing baseball and the expectations we have for them.  Sure we want them to have fun, but win or lose ....  They should know the pledge!  When the tournaments start and we do say the pledge before each of those games, it is embarrassing for some that they do not know the words to the Little League Pledge .....  Please have all your teams reciting the pledge before their games....Thank you

The mission of the local league shall be to implant firmly in the youth of the
community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage
and respect for authority, so that they may be well adjusted, stronger
and happier children and will grow to be decent, healthy and trustworthy adults.
To achieve this objective, the local league will provide a supervised
program of competitive baseball and softball games under the rules
and policies of Little League Baseball, Incorporated.
Directors, officers and members shall bear in mind that stressing=
exceptional athletic skills or winning of games is secondary,
and that type of leadership extended is of prime importance.

Vendor Show, Roundtable Highlight Upcoming Events
District 32 logo

Two key events in November will help all leagues in Distict 32 to better prepare for the 2010 season.

On November 12, District 32 will host its annual vendor show. Returning again this year to the Holiday Inn-Miramar, this annual show is a great way for leagues to visit with vendors from a wide variety of categories, all in one place and all in one night. Everyone is invited to come and see exhibits from uniform suppliers, photographers, equipment companies, snack bar suppliers and a wide variety of fundraising ideas.

This is the only show of its kind within our District, and the more representatives from each league that attend the better it is for your league, the District and the vendors. Invite parents, coaches, friends and neighbors. The more the merrier. And, be sure to stick around for some great door prizes!

The show will run from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, November 12. The Holiday Inn is located at Kearny Villa Road and I-15. Simply take I-15 to the Miramar Road exit, and the hotel is on the south side of Miramar Road, immediately west of the freeway.

The second big event this fall is our second annual District Roundtable, to be held Tuesday, November 17 at QinetiQ North America, 4250 Pacific Highway. This exciting event will be an opportunity for all board members from every league in our District to come together on one evening to share our knowledge and experience.

In addition to gaining insights into how each league fits into the "big picture" of our District and Region, each board member will have an opportunity to meet with those from the other leagues in our District who hold the same roles as they do. Both new and experienced volunteers will benefit from the chance to exchange ideas, successes and concerns, offering the best training possible to prepare for the 2010 season.

Board members who need to attend this event include: President, Vice-Presidents, Secretaries, Treasurers, Manager Reps, Field Coordinators, Snack Bar Coordinators, Information Officers/Webmasters, Equipment & Uniform Coordinators and Fundraising/Sponsor Reps. This meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. at QinetiQ, located in the Sports Arena/Old Town area. Come early to sign in so we can start on time.

If you have any questions about either of these upcoming events, your league president can share additional information.
