VOLUNTEER REFUND PICK UP DATES
The volunteer refunds will be handed out this Wednesday July 27th at the East Granby Public Library from 6 to 7:30 PM  AND Friday July 29th from 6 to 7:30 PM at the East Granby Farms recreation center building. If you cannot pick up your cash refund, checks will be mailed out to all eligible families who have sent in forms before the end of September. If you have any questions please contact Dawn at dmfjlf9@gmail.com

 

The EGLL Board met and discussed the volunteer refund. It seems many misunderstood who was exempt from shack hours and we are moving ahead to address this more clearly next year. We have decided to relax the policy this year due to what believe may have been a misunderstanding about the volunteer requirement. Next year the policy will be strictly adhered to by the board and any persons who do not follow the volunteer guidelines will not receive a refund of their volunteer fee. Please inform all parents that we are extending the date for getting the forms in to July 15th (and the cash back dates will occur between July 15th and July 31st). Any parents of T-ball, Farm, & AA baseball who complete a form with at least 6 hours of volunteer time will be reimbursed their volunteer fee even without shack hours. Please make sure your form is signed by a coach or board member who can confirm your hours and reaches Dawn Flanagan, ,  no later than July 15th.

FALL SOFTBALL REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

FALL SOFTBALL

Post-season play has just recently concluded for our District All Star teams, and if you haven’t heard the 11/12 and Juniors District All Star teams brought home the District 6 Championship titles!!! Congratulations to all of the East Granby and Granby girls who played on all teams!!

It’s hard to believe it’s time to get ready for Fall softball already, but we want to keep the momentum going.

East Granby Little League would like to invite all of our softball players to register for Fall softball. The fee for fall ball is $60.00 per player.

Sign-ups are now open for Fall Softball and will remain open until August 31st.  

Tentative practice and game schedule is below:

·         1-2 practices a week

·         1-2 games on the weekends

The focus of Fall softball is to keep the girls actively playing softball and allow them the opportunity to fine tunes skills and learn new ones in preparation for the upcoming Spring Season.  We are already in communications with our inter town league to discuss scheduling.  

Please consider registering early so that we can determine what levels we can field teams at and if we will need to potentially combine with other towns at any or all levels.

If you have an interest in coaching Fall softball please submit your interest or questions to Heather Popella at  .

 
Click here to Register.  We look forward to a great fall season.
 

Thank you,

EGLL Board of Directors

TENDER CARE LEARNING CENTER FIELD

For any EGLL teams using Tender Care Field:

Tender Care owns the field, not the town or EGLL, so we need to follow their rules or we will not be allowed to use it for practices or games.

We are not supposed to be using the field before 6:15pm. The day care is open until 6pm and they still have parents leaving the parking lot so we want to keep the area clear until 6:15. This does not mean you can park in the lot and wait to use the field prior to 6:15.

Under no circumstance is anyone allowed to use the Tender Care playground. This is very tough because there are a lot of kids at the field, especially younger siblings who are drawn to the playground. Please make all parents aware that no one is allowed to use the playground.

The building is locked after 6pm and if anyone attempts to pull on the doors it may set the alarm off. Please keep any children away from the building.

No peanuts of any kind are allowed on the Tender Care Field due to various peanut allergies.

Thanks for your cooperation.

EGLL BASEBALL & SOFTBALL FIELDS

 
“Spring fever is in the air and EGLL recognizes we will be seeing some very warm temperatures over the up coming weeks.  This warm weather is going to get everyone outside enjoying various outside activities.  Please be aware that the baseball and softball fields at East Granby Farms, Granbrook Park, EGMS, and EGHS are just beginning to soften up.  Please stay off these fields so we can continue to let Mother Nature take its course and we keep the fields in the best condition possible.”
 
Thank you,

2018 AGE DETERMINATION

2018 AGE DETERMINATION

Can you explain the new Little League Baseball® Age Determination date, and why the change was made? 

Little League® International always welcomes feedback from every one of our 7,000-plus leagues. We feel that the only way to provide the best experience for Little Leaguers® and their parents is to hear from and listen to our valuable volunteers and participants in communities worldwide. 

Little League conducted a very detailed participation research project. That research showed that parents, players, and volunteers want to see Little League® become, as a whole, a younger program, and give children an easier way to play Little League with their classmates. Our volunteer District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors carefully considered the results of the research, and ultimately changed the Age Determination Date for all divisions of Little League Baseball and the Little League Challenger Division® to August 31. This change will ensure that no child playing in the Little League/Major Division will turn 13 years old at any point during their final season in that division.

2018 BAT STANDARDS

2018 BAT STANDARDS

Can you tell me more about the new bat standard, and how it will affect my Little Leaguer®? 

Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball adopted the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. These new standards utilize the most current advancements available, so that manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. 

Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved. So, for the upcoming 2016 season and the 2017 season, there won’t be any change. You will still see the Little League name on bats being used for play. Beginning January 1, 2018, however, all bats must meet USA Baseball’s standards, and you won’t see Little League branding on permitted bats. The new bats are anticipated to be on sale starting in September 2017.
