Vestal Little League: Welcome


   2015 Minors & AAA Registration is Open!

Please see important age information in the article below, then click here to register.  Enjoy a $10 early bird registration discount in February for the Majors and Minors divisions.  Questions can be directed to:

   vestallittleleague@gmail.com 

March 12 was the deadline for registration in the Majors division (Majors registration is closed, rosters posted below), March 19 for the Minors division, and March 31 for the AAA division. To be eligible, players must reside or attend school within our Boundary Map.

Last year we upgraded to League One for online registration, which is the official registration system for Little League.  First time users will need to create an account which enables you to then register using this new, streamlined system - a significant improvement in ease of use.  If you registered for VLL last year you can log back in to your account where the information you entered last year is ready to go for a quick and easy registration this year.

See articles below for Dick's Sporting Goods coupons, including 20% off your entire purchase at the Vestal store location on March 21 at the Vestal Little League Shop Day.

Get ready to play ball!

 



Tryouts

All Tryouts are now complete!  Tryouts for Majors was on Sunday March 15 (Majors rosters are set and posted below), tryouts for Minors was on Sunday March 22.  Tryouts are held at the Vestal High School Gym.  There are no tryouts for AAA, registered AAA players are placed on a team.  Players participating in tryouts will be contacted a couple of days prior with a specific time to show up, typically between noon - 4pm.  Once you arrive at your specific time, it may take approximately 30 minutes for the tryout.  Players should wear comfortable clothing and sneakers (no cleats) and bring their baseball glove, and if desired their bat and/or helmet.  Bats and helmets will be provided for players to use as well.

Tryouts consist of a few basic baseball activities such as playing catch, fielding ground balls, pop flies, running, and hitting soft toss and/or hitting off a tee.

Note: Once a player is on a Minors team, he/she does not need to try out for Minors again in future seasons - players stay on the same Minors team until they move up to Majors.  Similarly, once a player is on a Majors team, he/she does not need to try out for Majors again in future seasons - players are automatically entered into the Majors draft and will be selected.  The Minors division is for 7-9 yr olds and the Majors division is for 10-12 yr olds (using the baseball age chart on this web site).

   Umpires

As we've been doing for many years, Vestal Little League will utilize teenage umpires this season.  Anyone interested in umpiring in VLL should contact Stace Kintner at skintner@stny.rr.com  and include the name of the teenager interested in umping, email address, mobile phone #, and years experience.  New umpires are welcome in addition to returning umps.

 

An orientation meeting will be held in April (date TBD) at Angelo Field for new and returning umpires.  The meeting should last about 1 hour.
