From Our Safety Officer : Our Lightning Policy:

If the lightning is within 15 miles, the game needs to be stopped and everyone sent to their car. The new lightning detectors are A/C powered and have battery backup. They have mile intervals set up from 0-3, 3-8, 8-20, and 20-30 miles. If the detector picks up lightning in the 8-20 range, people should treat it like 15 miles or less and get off the fields. The Concession Stand has the lightning detectors and coaches, umpires, league officials, and the stand workers should concern themselves when unsettled weather is possible. If the concession workers see lightning detected in the 8-20 mile range, then they will notify umpires or coaches on the field. If the lightning detector is not available, then it is up to the umpires to make the determination to get off the field. Everyone should be assuming that the lightning is 15 miles or less. However, seeing lightning does not mean that it is 15 miles away or less. The game cannot resume for 30 minutes from the last lightning strike without the detector or 30 minutes from the last strike in the 8-20 range with the detector. If you hear thunder, then it should be treated as if lightning is within 15 miles.

Safety is the most important thing. When in doubt, get off the fields and head to the cars.

Background Checks Required for Volunteers: 

Little league requires all volunteers to have a backgroundcheck completed and approved to be on the field.  This goes for all Managers, Coaches, Parents, Umpires and Board Members.  You will only be given a lanyard when you are approved.  Remember safety first when it comes to our children!  NO BACKGROUND CHECK MEANS YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE FIELDS!

New for 2014:
The MOTLL boundary is different than the Appoquinimink School District boundary.  Our current boundary extends from Middletown, Odessa and Townsend (MOT) to south side of the canal and west to Warwick, MD.  Players living north of the canal or outside of MOT or Warwick area, are not within our league boundary.  However, Little League International has modified Residency Eligibility for the 2014 season and beyond. If you are a student attending school (public or private), in which the address of the school resides in our little league boundaries and can provide the necessary documentation, dated before October 1, 2013,  you are eligible to play in MOTLL. Our boundary to the west remains the same and will stop west of Warwick, Md.  Any questions, please contact the player agent at playeragent@motlittleleague.com
