A Special Thank You Message to All Little League Volunteers...



A Message from the Chairman

Dr. Gilmour and Greg Warrington
As hundreds of dedicated Little League® volunteers gathered in Minnesota for the 26th Little League International Congress, it struck me that while we all come from different places with different backgrounds, Little League volunteers are remarkably the same. We are passionate. We are dedicated. And we are working to make Little League the best organization for the children who play baseball and softball.

At Little League International, every week is National Volunteer Week. The world joins us in thanking volunteers, though, from April 6 to 12, 2014. This year is a special one for Little League. As you know, 2014 is Little League’s Diamond Anniversary. For 75 years, the passion of Little League volunteers has brought the Little League experience to millions of children in thousands of communities in hundreds of countries.

A lot has changed over 75 years, but Little League is relevant as ever. The lessons of teamwork, dedication and hard work, and the importance of community togetherness will always be valued. And it’s the volunteers like you who instill these tenants of Little League in players, parents and fellow volunteers day in and day out.

We hope that you take the time to share in this year’s 75th Anniversary celebration by sharing your memories with the Little League Big Legacy Project. This digital mosaic will help bring thousands of great Little League moments together, while supporting Pitch In For Baseball, and helping more children around the world make new Little League memories.

Click here to share your memory

As always, we sincerely thank you for all of your time, work and dedication to the Little League program. We wish you the best of luck this season, and we hope you join us in celebrating Little League’s Diamond Anniversary.

Sincerely,
Dr. Davie Jane Gilmour
Chairman of the Little League International Board of Directors

    Hey It's Raining Out What Do I Do?


     

    Parents, managers, and fans please read this important message concerning rain, snow, hail, wind-storms, sandstorms, snow storms, just plain bad weather, and re-scheduled cancelled rained out games. We all hate bad weather and canceling games due to it.. BUT sometimes it happens... You can check the Web site and field phone for updated information. Remember sometimes the web site and message MIGHT NOT BE UPDATED..So when bad weather hits or you are unsure if the game you are scheduled to play is gonna go on we have one simple Golden Rule here at RGMVM:

    1- TO BE SURE YOU MUST COME DOWN TO THE FIELD TO SEE IF YOU ARE PLAYING...
    Calling the field the same day, the day before, the week or the night before does not work.. - Sometimes the phone is BUSY.. - Sometimes the message has not been updated.. - Sometimes the phone never stops ringing. So you cannot update the message… Also calling the Division Heads, or the league President, again the same day, the day before, the week or the night before.. IS NOT AN OPTION........ 

    Sometimes you might look out the window and say: "Look at it out there they will never be playing today" Well most of the times we are and you are going to miss the game, or even worse your team forfeits because it did not have enough players.. UGHHH..

    So please remember that one simple RGMVM Golden Rule..

    1- YOU SHOULD COME DOWN TO THE FIELD TO SEE IF YOU ARE PLAYING...
    and everything will be just cool .. :D

    Also managers are required to come down to the field to check the rescheduled date for any rained out games.

    Major Divison:
    Michael's Funeral Coughs Up Lead...Paradise wins 13-12
    Things looked bleak for Paradise when it trailed by 10 runs in the fifth inning, but Paradise recovered thanks to a key single in the sixth inning from Luis T to pull out a 13-12 win in six innings over Michael's Funeral at Rgmvm.
    With the score tied at 12 in the sixth inning, Luis came to the plate and singled, scoring Chris R.
    It was a good day at the plate for Paradise's Luis. Luis went 2-4, drove in one and scored one run.
    Each team blasted the other's pitching, and there were 25 total runs and 22 hits during the game. Relief pitchers got their fill of innings during the game, with the opposing managers using six pitchers in total.
    Mike racked up four RBIs on two hits for Paradise. He tripled in the fifth inning and homered in the sixth inning. Mike got it done on the bump on the way to a win. He allowed three runs over three innings. Mike struck out seven, walked four and gave up two hits.
    Michael's Funeral jumped out to an early 6-0 lead in the top of the first. Jack singled to ignite Michael's Funeral's offense. The scoreboard lit up again for Michael's Funeral when Jack scored, scored on a three-run double by #2, and scored on a groundout by Chris.
    Paradise brought home one run in the third inning, and matched that run total in the fifth. In the third, Paradise scored on an RBI single by Tyler F, bringing home Brady.

    IMPORTANT: Parents Please Note The Approved Bat Information

    Little League has placed a moratorium on all composite-barreled baseball bats for these divisions, which took effect on Dec. 30, 2010. If and when any 2 1/4-inch composite-barreled baseball bats receive a waiver of the moratorium, it will be noted on this lweb site. Little League reserves the right to add to this list or make other changes as new information arises.

     

    Most if not all  2 1/4 bats composite bats have been banned by Little League. Please go the little league web site for up to date information from Little League:

    Little League International Issues Update Regarding Composite Bats: Moratorium Imposed Immediately

     

    SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (Dec. 30, 2010) - Little League International has placed a moratorium on the use of composite bats in the Little League (Majors) Division and all other baseball divisions of Little League, effective immediately.

     

     "Today's decision of the Little League International Board of Directors Executive Committee is based on scientific research data from the University of Massachusetts (Lowell), which was contracted by Little League Baseball," Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. "The maximum performance standard for non-wood bats in the divisions for 12-year-olds and below is a Bat Performance Factor (BPF) of 1.15. The research found that composite bats, while they may meet the standard when new, can exceed that standard after a break-in process."

     

    Local Little Leagues were first informed of the research last September.

     

    "From the beginning, and throughout this process, we wanted to keep everyone informed," Patrick W. Wilson, Vice President of Operations at Little League International, said. "Our intent was to provide local league constituents clear direction regarding composite bats. There is a process through which manufacturers can submit individual models for a possible waiver if they wish to seek it. Going forward, we will let our leagues know which ones meet the standards for the Little League Baseball (Majors) 12-and-under divisions, if any."

     

    On Sept. 1, Little League International placed a moratorium on composite bats in the Junior, Senior, and Big League Baseball Divisions of Little League. Subsequent to that moratorium, some composite bat models have received a waiver and may be used in those divisions. Information on the composite bats that have received waivers for the Junior, Senior, and Big League Baseball Divisions of Little League may be found here:

     

    http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=bf6bhjcab&et=1104164546939&s=57199&e=001UopQkMRg1dHXYCHp63GueHPWeXvUW5YPCl3OEedazKmfWU-d6M41-hbjyGn_8ekA-cOqIV6GnnQu0ejR0qTSnFVfJvph3Z_qrrTE0-f0Hecr1UI469mW0PTMXO1tRR6nGiuObS-qCDjbC5gcMPDtFsagkJ9ziGtaDbto9lQB4sQ=

     

    At present, no composite bats for the Little League (Majors) Division and below have received a waiver. If and when any models do receive a waiver, Little League International will inform its leagues of that decision.

     

    The moratorium on composite bats, which now applies to all baseball divisions of Little League, does not apply to any softball divisions of Little League.

    Sincerely,

    Little League International

    "The Short Swing"

    image_name2
    Punch Down
    Here are more hitting tips from our friends at Clutch Hitting to help your game. THE SHORT SWING......IS SOOO IMPORTANT...
    Click the link above for a full breakdown with pictures!

    When practicing and working on your baseball swing, emphasis must be placed on the hands and the path that the hands must take. Learning a "short" swing and not a "long" swing can aid any hitter from little league to the professional ranks. The concept of getting to the baseball as quickly as possible, going from a set position to contact point, going from point A (set position) to point of contact (point c) can be accomplished in a theory developed even before baseball ever existed: A straight line.
