Mandatory Tournament Managers Meeting
LL Website Logo

All managers and potential managers of tournament teams must attend a pre-tournament meeting on Wednesday, June 3 at 5:30 p.m. at Rancho Penasquitos Little League Fields (Canyonside Park, 12350 Black Mountain Road, San Diego, CA 921129).

League presidents, district staff and tournament hosts are also invited to attend. 

This meeting, which should take approximately 90 minutes, will cover rules and procedures for both Tournament of Champions games and All-Stars. Managers of teams in both tournaments must attend this meeting. If your league has not finalized its selection of All-Star managers, or your TOC representative in any particular division is not yet decided, all potential tournament managers must attend.

Prior to the meeting, managers should review the tournament rules section in their green Little League rule book, and come prepared with any questions or requests for rules clarifications.

Tournament brackets for all divisions will also be distributed at this meeting.

 



Tournament Season Is Coming
District 32 logo

As our regular seasons are coming to a conclusion, it is time for league playoffs, followed by postseason tournaments.

For those of you who are new to our District, or have kids old enough to be playing in postseason tournaments for the first time, here is a heads up on what to expect after your league's regular season and playoffs come to an end. We hope you'll keep these dates in mind as you plan summer vacations and make other plans.

District 32 offers a Tournament of Champions for Minors, Intermediate and Juniors division champions from each of our leagues. Our Intermediate TOC will run from June 58. Minors and Juniors TOC tournaments will begin on June 8th, and run for about a week.

Once our Tournament of Champions play is completed, we will offer additional tournaments for All-Stars and selected teams of players from each league. Our Intermediate All-Star tournament begins on Saturday, June 13th, and runs for two weeks. Our 9/10-year-old and Juniors All-Star tournaments will begin on Saturday, June 20th, with the 9/10 tournament lasting until July 2, and the Juniors ending on June 29. We also have an 11-year-old tournament, which will run from June 20-July 2.

The champions of our District All-Star tournaments (9/10, Intermediate, Juniors, Seniors & Big League), will then advance to Sectional play against district champions from three other San Diego area districts in late June to mid-July, with the opportunity to further advance to Divisional, Regional and World Series tournaments later in the summer.

There are also non-All Star tournament opportunities which will be hosted by Scripps Ranch (9-year-olds from Kid Pitch divisions) and Rancho Penasquitos (9 & under from Machine Pitch divisions) the weekend of June 18-21. Check back here or "like" us on facebook to stay up-to-date on all our tournament schedules and results.

 



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.

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



OUR MISSION
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.

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
