What's Happening at PHLL?

 

  Fall Ball Registration Closed

Players and parents:  The League has closed Fall Ball registration. No waiting lists will be kept. We are now at maximum player capacity, even over in a few divisions. Sorry if you missed our live sign-up opportunities and online sign up deadline. Please notify the league ASAP if your player is still waiting for a call from a coach! If you will be interacting with children as a volunteer you will need to fill out a volunteer form found on our forms and documents section at the top. Fill it out and hand it in to a board member as soon as possible and we can get you background checked. Next year, please add fall ball to your calendar/reminders lists as early as late June/early July. If you missed out we encourage you to try other neighboring little leagues to see if they have any openings. Alameda, Eastdale, Petroglyph and West Mesa LLs should be operating fall ball leagues. Thank You

One More Calendar Reminder: Spring registration usually takes place the last 2 Saturdays in January! Online registration will probably open around late December or early January 2016!

 

  2015 Major All Star Champs!

Congratulations to our Major Baseball All Stars! The boys of "Summer in Paradise" were definately "all in this together" and had a great run this summer. The ultimate dream of heading to Williamsport came up a little short as Paradise bows out gracefully to the Arkansas Pine Bluff All Stars. You guys looked great on TV! Congratulations also goes out to manager Patrick Garcia, coaches Johnny Hererra and Jeff Kindley for coaching up a great group of boys! Thank you also to all the Paradise fans who donated to the Paradise GoFundMe Travel Fund! The families really really appreciated it as it helped a ton with accomodation and travel expenses!!

  2015 Softball All Star Champs!

Congratulations to our Major Softball All Stars! They swept through the District 8 Tournament undefeated and have earned the League's 1st ever District Banner in softball!!! The girls, coaches and their manager have busted their tails the last few years to be where they are! Their hard work has made them DISTRICT 8 CHAMPIONS! Your little league and community are so proud you! That title is now a stepping stone for more great softball at Paradise Hills. Paradise was stopped by some great competition at the state tournament but promises to be back next year!! GREAT JOB GIRLS AND COACHES!

A Few Reminders to All Parents and Fans:

The Board of Directors wants everyone to be reminded of some basic little league park rules such as:

1. Be Positive, encouraging and reassuring when attending your player's games. As you know, it goes a long way in the development of your children!

2. There is No Smoking on LL grounds. Also, if you chew tobacco, please leave your chew and your spit bottle in your vehicle. It is against our league rules. (see message below from Bernalillo County).

3.There are no unauthorized persons of any age allowed in dugouts during games including a 3 adult maximum for Rookies and above. Only coaches with background checks completed and badges issued are permitted.

4. 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.

5. Please remember that bubble and/or chewing gum is NOT ALLOWED in dugouts or immediately around the turf fields as this is some of the hardest foreign material to remove from artificial turf!

6. Parents please help us keep our Little League looking as great as it did after field cleanup day. We need your help by keeping your little ones from "redecorating" the open area near field #3 and the concession stand by insisting they leave the 4 inch boulder rocks where they lay. This will help a lot!

7. Fans of all ages, Please remember to cut the volunteer umpires some slack by allowing them do their job without interference from the stands. Several LL umps are 1st year officials and are out there because there is a mandatory rule for all coaches to take their turn umping games. If you would like to help out umpiring please contact James Joyce at umpire@paradisehillsLL.com and he can talk to you about volunteering in this capacity. Thanks!

8. Last, and most importantly, since we installed our 2 new fields we have become a NO Shelled Seed/Nut Facility (includes sunflower, pinon, pumpkin, peanut, pistachio and others in these families). Shells from the junior, softball or teeball fields 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 three half-turfed fields would cost about $6000 each to properly remove shells, gum and other foreign material to restore to original condition and we just don't have that kind of money in the bank. Thank You Very Much!

  A message from Bernalillo County:

Please remember that all tobacco products are banned for usage on Little League grounds (Bernalillo county property). This includes all cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco. Little League International has added E-cigs, vapor cigarettes and all similar products this year. At this time, the parking lot is still ok to smoke in. Please stay a minimum of 50 feet from all field entrances. Thank You!
