Changes Made to Little League's Background Check Regulation

November 18, 2011

Dear District Administrators and League Presidents:

Bulletin: Changes Made to Little League's Background Check Regulation

Little League International today announced changes to its background check regulation (Regulation I [c] [9]) to reflect recent changes in several states' decisions regarding the availability of sex offender registries.

As always, local Little Leagues and districts in the U.S. are required to, at a minimum, perform a check that covers the Sex Offender Registries of all U.S. states/territories, for certain personnel in the league, as noted in the regulations. There is only one place online where such a check of all states is free: The U.S. Department of Justice National Sex Offender Public Registry, at www.nsopr.gov.

For several years, and again for the coming season, Little League is providing every local Little League and district with 125 FREE national (U.S.) criminal background checks, through Lexis/Nexis. Unfortunately, because of problems created by four states - Hawaii, Iowa, Michigan and Virginia - the Lexis/Nexis criminal background check no longer has updated data on the Sex Offender Registries in those states.

"It is unfortunate that lawmakers in Hawaii, Iowa, Michigan and Virginia have decided not to make their sex offender registries available at no charge in this way," Dan Kirby, Little League's Vice President of Risk Management, said. "We certainly understand those states' desire to generate revenues. However, we feel that making them available without cost in this way is more important. Until that is rectified, we need to adjust our regulations.

"We continue to strongly recommend that local leagues conduct the Lexis/Nexis national criminal background check, as well as the minimum requirement to check the Sex Offender Registries of all states. The Lexis/Nexis check covers far more crimes than those of a sexual nature, and it's completely free, up to 125 checks per league or district."

Funding for the free Lexis/Nexis National Criminal Background Checks benefit, provided to every local Little League and district, is derived from the rights fee Little League receives each year from its partnership with ESPN.

Regulation I (c) (9) in the 2012 rule books will remain the same as stated in 2011, with the exception of the order of Notes 1 and 2, and the content of Note 2. The actual text of the change to the regulation is below.

***

Note 1: The United States Department of Justice National Sex Offender Public Registry is free and available at www.nsopr.gov.

Note 2: Little League International currently provides each league with access to 125 free criminal background checks per year. However, due to problems created by four states, these checks no longer meet the minimum standard required in this regulation. Due to the refusal of the states of Hawaii, Iowa, Michigan and Virginia to provide sex offender registry data to the records check provider, the free criminal background checks no longer meet the minimum standard of a nationwide search of the sex offender registry. Sex offender registry data for those four states listed above are currently only available through the Department of Justice National Sex Offender Registry (www.nsopr.gov) and/or through the individual state's sex offender registry website.

In addition to meeting the minimum requirement of checking the United States Department of Justice National Sex Offender Registry (www.nsopr.gov), Little League strongly encourages all leagues to also utilize the national criminal records search available through the Little League website. This additional criminal records check may provide additional important information regarding the criminal records of individuals whose crimes do not require that they be listed on a sex offender registry. For example, convictions for assault, battery, theft or drug offenses would not result in a report to sex offender registry.

Information on how to utilize this benefit, as well as how to conduct background checks, can be found on the Little League website at http://www.littleleague.org/learn/programs/childprotection.htm

If no sex offender registries exist...

As always, thank you for your service to the children and families of your community.

Sincerely,

Little League International



Additional options that are available for Junior - Big League Divisions

April 16, 2011

Dear Little League Volunteers:

Little League International today announced a change to the regulations for 2012 that will allow more options in the teenage divisions of baseball.

Effective Jan. 1, 2012:

  • The Senior League Baseball Division (previously limited to players league age 14-16) may now include players league age 13-16.
  • The Big League Baseball Division (previously limited to players league age 16-18) may now include players league age 15-18.
  • For Tournament Play, the age divisions will be: Junior League 13-14; Senior League 13-16; and Big League 15-18.

The Junior League Baseball Division remains for players league age 13-14 during the regular season. (Note: As before, 12-year-olds also are eligible for Junior League Baseball regular season play, under certain criteria.)

This gives local leagues wide latitude in tailoring their regular season teenage baseball divisions based on the available talent pool and age breakdown.

"All of the changes in the rules and regulations for 2012 will be announced in the next few days," Patrick W. Wilson, Senior Vice President of Operations and Program Development, said. "We wanted to get this change out to our leagues and districts sooner, however, for planning purposes."

The change also will affect pitch-count limits in Tournament Play, so the days of rest guide will apply to 13-18 year olds participating in the Senior and Big League divisions. Pitch count limits for the regular season remain the same as in 2011, based on the age of the pitcher.

Sincerely,

Little League International
