Change in Bat Rules
Little League has issued new rules about bats for the 2012 season.

For 2012, MSLL will again keep to a “no composite bat” rule in all MSLL games for the safety of our players. Composite bats will be provided to Post Season teams for those teams selected to play against other leagues in Post Season games (District Championships, Provincials, etc). If you have any questions about any equipment such as bats, please contact the MSLL Equipment Manager Dan Biro.

Welcome to Rally Caps at Mount Seymour
MSLL introduced Rally Caps in 2008 as a way to better teach new players the game of baseball, as well as to improve on our coaching techniques. It proved successful and we have continued to use a variation of the program originally developed by Baseball Canada. read more


Volunteers Step Up to the Plate
ManMultitasking_1
If it weren't for volunteers, there would be no Mount Seymour Little League.

Because there is no paid staff, volunteer Board members work all year round to ensure that there will be a next season. One member handles our many equipment needs, another keeps the diamonds in game shape, another works to ensure player safety, and the list goes on.

Coaches and managers put in untold hours running practices, planning for games, and striving to give each of their players a positive experience. Coordinators spend long hours helping things run smoothly for the teams within their division. Then there's the Concession Booth staff that works 4-hour shifts several evening per week plus longer on weekends.

In addition to all the time they give to baseball, our volunteers have jobs and family responsibilities just like you. They're not looking for thanks, but they are looking for help.

So when you're called upon, please step up to the plate and give what time and energy you can. Or contact your child's coach or the Board and offer your services before being asked.

Thank you for joining us…to ensure that Mount Seymour Little League is very best it can be.
