TRLL 12u All Star - Welcome Home Rally



As you may already know, the TRLL 12 year old Allstars lost their semi finals game in the Mid-Atlantic Little League Tournament on Friday afternoon. They are coming home Saturday 8/9/2014 and there is a surprise police escort that is going to bring them to the TRLL complex (181 Mapletree Road Toms River, NJ). We'd like to have as many people there to welcome them back and congratulate them on their NJ State Championship and great run in Bristol. If you can, come down to the TRLL complex Saturday at 3:00 PM to greet the team. Spread the word!

Become a TRLL Volunteer!
Why Should I Become a Volunteer?
Little League Baseball and Softball is an organization designed to build good citizens. It is a program of leadership, preparing today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders. At the local level, Little League relies on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs smoothly. Your local Little League program is always looking for responsible and enthusiastic individuals to support and coordinate Little League events and activities. As a volunteer, you should have a keen interest in the safety, well-being, and overall development of children. By reading further, you will discover that the benefits of volunteering are endless. You will also gain a better understanding of why you should become involved, who volunteers are, what you can do, and how you can sign up.

Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them! Across the country, volunteers are grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, retirees, community leaders, former Little Leaguers, friends, neighbors, and more. Any community member who wishes to become a volunteer may apply.

All parents of children involved in Little League Baseball and Softball are strongly encouraged to volunteer. As a parent, volunteer, you have the opportunity to spend quality time with your child in a safe, fun-filled environment. Oftentimes, parent and child social lives parallel each other. Volunteering allows your life and your child's life to intersect on common ground, with shared interests and goals. 

On rare occasions, Little League, through District Administrators and your local Board of Directors, may deny individuals the privilege of volunteering for reasons, past or present, that may be detrimental to the positive development of young people, other volunteers, and/or Little League International. When you apply to become a volunteer, you give the local Little League organization the right to conduct necessary background checks.

How Do I Become A Volunteer?
TRLL will announce multiple opportunities throughout the year when volunteer help will be required.  Parents, take a minute to fill out the volunteer form while registering your child. If you are not a parent and would like to volunteer, take a minute to fill out the form while visiting your local registration location. The 2014 Little League volunteer application form can also be downloaded here.

What Can I Volunteer To Do?
No experience is required to become a volunteer. Most of the volunteer opportunities require little or no training. Your local league will provide you with any necessary training (as well as support and encouragement), as they deem necessary. The best volunteers are those who are able to bring added enjoyment to the game simply by being themselves. What you see during Little League games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer. You can volunteer to help in virtually any aspect of Little League Baseball or Softball.

TRLL President's Letter - Spring 2014



Welcome Toms River Little League (TRLL) Members and Families to 2014!   Baseball season will be upon us before we know it, TRLL Opening Day is April 5th, and your TRLL Board wishes to make certain we are all prepared and ready to play. We continue our multi-year plan of TRLL complex enhancements, and each year our fields and facilities have been upgraded. Thanks to the efforts of our Fundraising Committee these past several years, and with the support of you, our TRLL Members, and our Sponsors, we have kept our registration costs unchanged, and our baseball fields green and ready for play.

2014 marks 75 years for Little League Baseball and 62 years for TRLL.

This year the TRLL Board has decided on changes to our Major League Division which we feel will open opportunities for more age and skill specific play, and more playing time for our children.  We will divide our Major League into two (2) separate divisions:

First; a new 9 and 10 year old Division where Little League children ages 9 and 10 will play in their own respective Major League Division. This change will give these children more competitive playing time in their own respective and age specific Major League Division and Teams.  We will continue our participation in the non- Little League sanctioned 9 year baseball tournament hosted by Barnegat Little League; as well as fielding a 10 year old Little League Tournament All Star Team.  No changes for All Stars.  All Players ages 9 and 10 will be contacted via email blast from our TRLL Player Agent shortly for required try-outs tentatively scheduled for Saturday February 1st at TRLL Batting Cages, followed by a Drafting of teams. All these Players will be Drafted to Major League teams.

Second; our 11 and 12 year olds will play in their own age specific Major League Division too.  We will field our usual 11 and 12 year old Little League Tournament All Star Teams. No changes for All Stars.  All Players ages 11 and 12 who did not participate on Major League teams in 2013 will receive an email blast from our Player Agent for required try-outs tentatively scheduled for Saturday February 1st at TRLL Batting Cages, followed by a Drafting of teams. All these Players will be Drafted;  and, depending on our registration numbers,  we may continue to field a AAA All Star Team;  and other post season baseball and tournament opportunities for this age group.

Effectively, we have combined our former AA (the 9yr old division) and AAA (Minor League Division) with our Majors Program. All Players ages 9 through 12 will now be Major League Players.  In this way, we can field more teams, and enhance playing time and skill, adding more fun and team play for our children. This change helps us adjust to our TRLL registration numbers. We will conduct a complete re-Draft of all existing Major League teams. This annual practice is most common in other little leagues.

Players  ages 11 through 13 may again participate in the Intermediate Division, as well as Majors and Juniors Division specific teams, playing baseball on 50’-70’ size fields. Intermediate remains a separate Little League chartered Division, with its own All Star Tournament Team, and schedule. We hope to have unique TRLL 50-70 teams competing intermurally and, at even an intra-district level, if we can. Additional registration fees for Intermediate Division play will be minimal, and no additional Work Bond commitment is required. Juniors age 13 are welcome here. Registration and Draft details for the Intermediate Division will follow our Major League Drafts.

And speaking of Juniors, we are actively promoting our Junior and Senior League Divisions. We hope to include intra-district play; and will have post season play including, but not limited to the non-sanctioned Manchester Invitational, and other local baseball tournaments, for TRLL players of all competitive ages.

For our younger, non-competitive teams, ages 4 through 8; you can look forward to more playing time! We will be filling our fields with your games! TRLL will again host an 8 year old non-sanctioned baseball tournament in July. Our Pee Wee 7 year olds, and our T-Ballers will get more chances to play at TRLL too. How about some night games?!

 Surely, there are questions and kinks to work out.  And, we’ll address these as we progress. Our website is open 24/7 for online registration, and we have open, on-site registration scheduled Saturday January 25th. So check the website for this and other upcoming details: www.trll.us .

Please continue to support our Fundraising efforts; wear TRLL Clothing, it’s on sale at TRLL; dine out with our Sponsors; and come to our annual Comedy Night Dinner scheduled in early May. These and other efforts help keep ever rising costs in check, and help keep our registration fees constant. Please oblige when contacted by TRLL Fundraising volunteers, these are our members, and your teammates acting on behalf of all our baseball children.

All TRLL Members are welcome to attend open monthly TRLL Board Meetings; dates are posted on our website. We welcome your thoughts and ideas, and each year our TRLL Board asks for your help. TRLL will continue to communicate via our electronic website, social media, and email blasts. We can certainly use a helping hand getting ready for Spring. You may contact any Board Member via our website to volunteer.

So what’s next?  Register!!  Visit us at www.trll.us  .  TRLL looks forward to another fun filled baseball season with you, our members and families! Now Let’s PLAY BALL!!

On behalf our children, and for the TRLL Board;

Mark J. Angelo,

TRLL President

2013 Letter from the TRLL President

To begin, I would like to wish everybody a safe, and happy holiday season, as we approach the New Year, and hope that with everything that has happened to our community and its surrounding areas over the last couple of months, everyone is doing well.  Right around the corner, we will begin a new season at Toms River Little league for 2013.  As everyone is aware, TRLL has been around for more than 50 years, and we have been very successful in providing our community with a great place to play baseball and an opportunity for our children to learn lessons, to be used both on and off the field.

I have personally been involved with TRLL for 13 years now, and over the years, I have seen our league undergo changes, which have been beneficial to both our membership and the community.   From the inception of our organization, TRLL was one charter until the time that our membership grew to over a 1000 kids.  At that time, we were forced to go to a 2 charter league, as mandated by Little League, Williamsport in 2005, creating a Toms River National and Toms River American league within our one league.  Over the last few years, our membership, as well as that in other leagues within our district, and throughout the state,  has  continually decreased due to many factors.   Over the last 3 years, while our registrations have leveled off, it is far less than it was just a few years ago.  As a result, the league has less income, and less players in most of the divisions.  As a result, it was voted upon by the board of directors, to request of Little League,  that TRLL be permitted to return to one charter, as this would allow our league with its current membership, to be consistent, with the other leagues within our district.

On December 5, 2012, Little League approved our request, and,  as a result, TRLL will now proceed beginning in 2013 as one league.  It will help us both financially and competitively,  and it is in our opinion, in the best interests of TRLL moving forward.  While it is understood, that this means one less all-star team for district play in 2 age groups,  I can assure the membership, that we will continue to provide the same number of all-star teams in various tournaments of play.  I think that this may even allow for additional games for those players chosen, and will allow for all of our “all-stars” to remain as such, and continue to play competitively, with the opportunity to represent TRLL and our community with pride.

Another positive change that league members will see beginning in 2013, is the start of the 50/70 division as sanctioned by Little league.  While more details will follow to the league membership, it is a division for those 13 year olds who either prefer to play at 50/70 as part of a natural progression to the larger 60/90 field, or those 13 year olds who wish to play both.  Additionally, 11 and 12 year olds may also be permitted to play in addition to playing on the regular 46/60 field. It is exciting to be introducing this “Intermediate” division, as leagues across the country begin to embrace it.

As everyone is aware, TRLL is run completely by volunteers, and a board of directors made up of 26 dedicated individuals.  However, there are many costs involved in running our league, and much to do around the league which has to be done by volunteers, and cannot be left solely to the board of directors.  Our fundraising committee is run by dedicated people who have raised our fundraising to levels never seen before.  But they need help and cannot do it alone.  Therefore, as we approach a new season, I would ask that everyone in our membership volunteer when and where they can, to make TRLL continue to grow and be successful.  Ask what you can do to help.  Whether it is picking up garbage when you are at the complex or asking if there is a committee you can join or if you have a service you can donate or volunteer, all is welcome, and will be greatly appreciated.  With the help from  our  volunteer fundraising committee,  TRLL has been able to raise funds to upgrade our facility with new equipment, new dugouts, repairs, and much needed renovations to our building and fields, and I would like to personally thank everyone who has assisted, for their efforts.

If anyone has any questions, comments or suggestions, please email me at segsig@verizon.net or contact any of our board members.  Once again,  on behalf of the Toms River Little League, we would like to wish a happy, healthy and safe New Year to all.

Steve Greenberg

President, Toms River Little League

Mike Tedeschi - 2012 TRLL Raymond Emmons Award



2012 Mike T - Ray Emmons Award

Congratulations and THANK YOU from TRLL to Mike Tedeschi who was recently presented the 2012 TRLL Raymond Emmons Award!

Mike has donated a tremendous amount of time and effort here at the TRLL complex over the past several years.  He has served as the league's P.A. Announcer and his dedication for going above and beyond to help run the concessions as well as maintaining our complex is exemplary. THANK YOU Mike for all that you have done and continue to do for TRLL!

The TRLL Board of Directors established the Raymond Emmons Sportsmanship Award on June 19, 1989. The award was designed to recognize special individuals, other than Board members, managers and coaches, who through their conduct and personal efforts make the Toms River Little League experience richer and more rewarding for those children who participate. The initial award was presented to Ray Emmons at the awards banquet in September, 1989.

Youth Sports Sign

Our 10 Responsible Sports Resolutions:



1. Focus on skills not scores. Too much attention to the scoreboard comes at the expense of attention to other types of success. When youth athletes focus on learning and improving skills, they are taking steps toward immediate and long-term success. Setting attainable skills goals and then reaching them helps kids at every position and in every team role enjoy their sport experience and continue playing.

2. Cheer for efforts not outcomes. This resolution helps athletes concentrate on what they can control. In some sports, outcomes (goals, runs, points) are few and far between, often non-existent for players in defensive positions. But every player can contribute effort that can be the difference maker in a game. Cheer for these efforts will keep them coming.

3. Give your kids space. Sports is an environment to learn powerful life lessons, and many come through challenges and adversity and can be even more powerful when kids learn the lessons for themselves. In the age of "helicopter parents", resolve to resist the temptation to solve issues for your kids in sports. Not getting enough playing time? Encourage your kid to talk to the coach directly to make a case for an enhanced role. Sports is a terrific space to learn and grow if we parents give our kids the space to do so.

4. Commit to the 5:1 ratio. It's hard. We know. But giving kids feedback in a ratio of five positives to one negative can be the difference between a kid hearing your feedback and not hearing it, the difference between continuing to play or quitting. In the beginning, the 5:1 ratio may require writing it down to get the hang of it. But the more you practice it, the easier it becomes.

5. Brush it off. If you're committed to the principles of Responsible Sports, you've probably taught your athlete the idea of brushing off mistakes and moving forward. But are you practicing what you advocate? Do you brush off missed calls by the referee? Do you brush off mistakes made by athletes on the field? If not, your child probably will not do so either.

6. Participate positively. If last year you were frustrated by your child's youth sports experience, take a look in the mirror and try a different approach. Rather than complaining about coaches, arguing calls and riding your kids about their sports, try taking an oath: only say something if you have something good to say. Otherwise, refrain.

7. Thank coaches and officials. Coaches oftentimes only hear from disgruntled parents and athletes. Have you ever thanked a coach for teaching your child a new skill or for being another adult for your child to turn to in tough times? Coaches have emotional tanks that need to be filled too. Do your part! As for officials, we'd like to issue you this challenge: find one opportunity this season to thank the officials. If you see them get a tough call right, let them know after the game.

8. Value the opponent. In an attempt to motivate athletes, sometimes we become negative when it comes to our opponents. But the truth is, we need our opponent to even be able to play the game. A worthy opponent challenges us to be better than we thought we could be. We rise to the challenge and learn in both victory and defeat. Without a worthy opponent, we wouldn't have those opportunities. Resolve to value and honor your opponents and encourage your child to do the same.

9. Become a partner in your child's youth sports experience. Join the team of adults who are supporting positive youth sports experiences. Talk to your child's coach and ask how you can help - with your child in particular and with team as a whole. Volunteer to help out the team Mom or Dad. Offer your assistance to the league.

10. Participate in the Responsible Sports dialog. Resolve to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with fellow parents and coaches this year. The youth sports experience is not just black and white, but also shades of grey that challenge all of us. By sharing your thoughts, you can not only get advice for folks going through the same challenges, but you could also help others out there who might be struggling with a situation. Resolve to share your experiences to help make youth sports better.
