EGLL Little league has opened registration for Junior's Summer Ball. Baseball players ages 12 -15 are eligible to play. Juniors will be playing games vs Granby, Suffield and other surrounding towns. Teams will have 2 games a week either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. For more information please send emails to Dwayne Douglas at
. We hope to see you on the field this summer.
EGLL will be fielding teams at the AA, AAA and Majors levels, as well as a baseball transitional team depending on the number of players who sign up, their league age, and ability. The transitional level is geared toward players league age 12 who will be moving to the juniors level next year. This level will play on intermediate sized and full 90 foot base path fields. Summer Ball is open to both boys and girls.
Final team placement will be based on a number of factors including age, which level the player played during the spring season, and skill level as determined by discussions with current coaches and player assessment as necessary. Players are guaranteed to play in the division in which they played during the spring with some possibility of moving up depending on numbers and player skill. EGLL reserves the right to adjust players among levels as appropriate, during the first week of the season.
Summer Baseball objectives and play are consistent with EGLL Spring Objectives, and provides all players the opportunity to expand their skills and enjoyment of the game.
Games are played Mondays through Thursday, with approximately two games a week scheduled over a six week period from the end of June to the first week in August. Rosters are built with the expectations that players will miss some games due to summer vacations and other commitments.
Many of you may have noticed the construction next to our field at East Granby Farms. East Granby Little League was able to purchase a brand new batting cage for all of our baseball and softball teams to utilize in the future. EGLL purchased materials to install and local DPW along with park and recreation have agreed to put the cage up in the same location as our old batting cage. For every ones safety we ask that all parents please make sure any and all children stay away from the work zone during installation. Please make sure all children stay away from heavy equipment and any materials in and around the new area are not touched for safety reasons. Upon completion their will be a detailed communication to the EGLL community about usage and how to schedule the batting cage. We will be utilizing the duel lane cage as another practice facility in the future.If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to board members Ray Fagnant, Brandon Freeman, Heather Popella, and Chris DeJesus.

We would like to have as many qualified food handlers as possible as it helps with our snack shack operation to have knowledgeable folks on all teams as well as meeting requirements for our permit. Please consider attending this training.
