Schedule Help Needed 

MCLL is looking for a volunteer to review all of our division schedules. Each division will need to be reviewed and separated by team. Schedules will also need to be edited for scheduling errors. This is a very important part of keeping our league running smoothly. If you are interested in volunteering for this task please contact MCLL Information Officer Tom Reiner at

Field Maintenance

The MCLL is looking for volunteers to help reset the bases at Sporting Hill and White Oak Fields and preparing the fields for winter. We will also be collecting the equipment and supplies from the sheds and field boxes for winter. With fields so extremely wet we will need as much help as we can get to prepare fields for spring. If you are willing to volunteer please contact any MCLL Board member - Below is list that the MCLL could use volunteers to help.

  • Stock sheds with equipment (rakes, shovels, string line)
  • Bases back to the fields
  • Return mowers to the fields
  • Return drags and spikes to the fields
  • Stock sheds and field boxes with field lime and field dry
  • Spike & Drag fields
  • Install benches and fencing at Burgard Field
  • Dig out base paths at Burgard Field
  • Help with removing backstop at Hollinger
  • Spread Diamond Tex at Fairland Field
  • Construct/repair mounds at Sweetbriar, Cedar Hollow & Legion
  • Prep fields for games
  • General cleanup of fields

Safety Plan

It is that time of year again. Even through the baseball season and holidays the MCLL is still very hard at work. The Safety Officer has prepared the 2019. If you have experience in any medical field, please volunteer to help with the Safety Plan that is required by Little League International. 

Umpire Help Needed

The MCLL is subject to the same issues as every other league when it comes to umpires. The MCLL is looking for volunteers to umpire Little League games. Umpires are needed for behind the plate and on the bases. The MCLL has made arrangements with official Little League Umpires to provide training to all volunteers. The steps are in place for all interested people experienced or not learn and the proper techniques of umping a LL baseball game. Training is free of charge to anyone interested. Must be 13 years of age or older. Contact Tom Reiner at for more info.

Uniform Help

The MCLL is looking for help to sort and organize uniforms for the spring season. If you are interested in helping please let the board know. Thank you.

Ordering for MCLL

MCLL is in need of a volunteer to take on the task of ordering delivery and pick up of our field restrooms on annually. Requirements will be:

  1. Compare prices (Report prices to MCLL for approval)
  2. Order delivery and pick up for spring and fall baseball season

Assistant Coach 

MCLL head coaches are looking for assistant coaches. Volunteer with your child's team and become an assistant coach. All volunteers will need to complete a Little League Background check.

Team Parents 

Team parents are just as important to a team as the head coach is. Team parents help with keeping kids on the bench, knowing their place in the batting order, position on the field, contact between coach and parents, keeping track of game balls, helping at practice or any other task needed.


Have a great idea on how the MCLL can keep expenses low? Join a group of volunteers to brain storm and present fundraising ideas to the MCLL Board. Open to any and all ideas.
