Welcome To Paradise Hills Little League!

Home of the 2014 11-Year old Major Baseball State Champions!

  

What's Happening at PHLL?

Boys and Girls of Summer Get the Season Started with some exciting and close games!

Parents and all fans: The Board of Directors want everyone to be reminded of some basic little league park rules such as No Smoking on LL grounds (see message below from the county). There are no unauthorized persons of any age allowed in dugouts during games. Parents and coaches please remember to abide by the parents code of conduct you signed in your child's registration packet. Please advise your guests of these basic rules of decorum if they are exhibiting negative behavior. Coaches please make every effort to be present for your mandatory umpiring assignment. If you can't make it you need to find a replacement Ump. Please remember that no chewing/bubble gum is allowed on or around the turf fields as this is some of the hardest to remove from artificial turf. And since we installed our 2 new fields we have become a NO Shelled Seed/Nut Facility (includes sunflower, pinon, pumpkin, peanut, pistachio). Shells from the junior field will blow onto these fields and shorten the life of the turf dramatically. According to another local little league, it costs around $12,500 to properly clean their full sized Major and Softball fields...each. So to translate that to our league, our two half-turfed fields would cost $6250 each to properly remove shells and restore to original condition and we just don't have that kind of money in the bank account. Thank You!

Badges?? Who Needs a PHLL Badge?

All LL volunteers need a PHLL badge! Please come by the office for your LL Volunteer badge if you are an approved volunteer (background check completed). A board member should be able to take your picture and print out a badge in a few minutes.

Little League Night at Isotopes Park!

Little League Night at the Isotopes was a great success! Thanks to all the parents, players, friends all family members for making Little League Night look like Paradise Hills Night at the ol' ballpark! Good Job on all the cool banners! What a great night!

 

Early Allstar Information

Please be advised of the following dates as All Stars requires all players to attend all practices and games. Only illnesses are excused. Please plan summer vacations before allstars begins. End of season tournaments are not mandatory but preferable by managers. The minor and major baseball end of season tournaments are tentatively scheduled to start on 5/28 and end on 6/9. These dates are subject to change depending on weather or makeup games throughout the season. All Stars starts on June 15th and could run through the end of July or longer (let's hope).

Thank You, Mike A. Vigil 

  Interleague Rules are Posted in Forms and Documents

Please click on Forms and Documents to view your division's Interleague Rules. Pay special attention to the top paragraph where divisions have strict no-show policies including elimination from interleague play.

  

There's Room for More Players...

But you need to be quick! Once the season starts we will be taking only a few more players for teams that are still short. Openings are in the T-Ball, Rookie baseball, Junior baseball, Junior softball and Rookie softball divisions!!  Please see last call and waiting list below for information you need to get your child registered!  Sorry, Major and Minor baseball are all filled up. You may add your child's name to these divisional lists but will only be called for a roster spot if there is a season ending injury or a child moves away.

  

**Last Call for Little Leaguers**

Any players still wishing to play the spring season will be put on a waiting list. As spots become open, players will be called on a first come, first served basis. Parents wishing to put their child's name on the waiting list can email to add their name to the list. Use our info@paradisehillsLL.com address. Send child's name, gender, date of birth, address and best contact parent name and phone number with WAITING LIST in subject line. Divisional VPs and player agents will compile each list and call parents when a spot becomes open.

**Please make sure you live within our league boundaries before emailing us to be placed on the waiting list. Southern boundary is Paseo del Norte, Eastern boundary is Golf Course Road, North and West boundaries are the Bernalillo-Sandoval county lines. Thank you. 

 

WAITING LIST REGISTRATION 

Should you be called for a waiting list spot, here's what you need to know. Fees remain the same as the 2014 season - $110 for first player, $90 for 2nd player, $70 for 3rd player and free for 4th player in household PLUS $40 fundraiser buyout per player due at registration (Sorry, we have no more fundraiser chocolates or restaurant peelers). See 2015 registration packet in Forms and Documents and fill out packet in its entirety. Please take note of the $15 late fee per player. So, for one child, late registration fees will total $165. Also, on the last page on registration packet, there are instructions for the required documentation to bring to sign ups. Original birth certificate plus 3 proofs of residency at your current residence. Please bring the ones dated January or February 2015 if possible. They can be older that that by 1 year. 

The January 2015 PHLL Newsletter is now available! Click on PHLL News to see it and download it! 

Please be advised of the new baseball age determination date of December 31st for players born on or after January 1, 2006 and who will turn 4 - 9 during the 2015 calendar year. LL decided to phase in TBall through first year minors only. Softball divisions already use this format.

http://www.littleleague.org/learn/newsletters/CBNewsletter/2014/cbnov14/newplayerage.htm  

All baseball players born before January 1, 2006 will keep their April 30th determination date for the remainder of their LL careers. So, whatever age you are on that date is your league age for the current season.


The Sun will be setting a little later everyday. Here's a link for the latest sunrise and sunset times:
