Quito Little League - News You Can Use - April 2016
Hello Quito Little League Families!
Well we are half way through a great season. The sun is shining, the games are being played and the kids are having a great time. We wanted to take this opportunity to shares with you news and stuff that is happening around the league.

We have been making multiple improvements to our fields and facilities since last season. On the fields, we have purchased new outfield netting so that when your child hits that home run, you will clearly see it go “out of the park.”
We have installed gates on all the dug outs which provide a level of security and safety for our players and coaches. We have also installed helmet trees in each of the dug outs for the kids to hang their helmets on rather than kicking them on the ground and getting damaged and scratched.
We have also made improvements to Quito’s restrooms. Both restrooms now have warm-air blow dryers and jumbo roll toilet paper dispensers. For the boy’s restroom, we have installed a partition, thus freeing up the restroom so that more than one person can use it at a time. Lastly, we installed water-wise sink faucets. Quito is committed to being a responsible environmental partner in the community while at the same time improving the experience for our players, coaches, parents, and visiting guests.
Pictures – Make-up Day
Sunday, April 17th will be Quito’s make-up picture day. If you missed Opening Day pictures, this is the day to get your player’s picture taken. You can find out more details on Quito’s website.
Every year we give out a yearbook so that you can relive the highlights of the season. To help pull the yearbook together, we need LOTS of pictures from everyone. If you own one of those big cameras we see around the field or you prefer the camera on your phone, please take pictures of your child’s team. The more pictures the better. Remember, this yearbook is complimentary but we can’t do it without your help. Please send print quality images or any questions you may have to
It still seems like opening day was yesterday, but the season goes by quick! That being said, I want all of you to know that registration for All-Stars will open up on May 1th and close promptly on May 8th. We are keeping the fees the same as last year – $125. The $125 helps pay for the tournament fees and uniform costs. Speaking of uniforms, this year Quito will provide players with a baseball cap, jersey and practice jersey. This year, like last year, you will need to provide your player with their own baseball pants. We have not determined if they will be white or gray this year, but more will come of that. We are not supplying the black socks or belt this year as we have found that many families have multiple black socks and belts. Therefore, we are providing a Quito All Star practice jersey in addition to their game jersey
We are going to need your help this year with volunteering. If you register your child for one of the All Star teams, we need you to commit to volunteering at the Minors Tournament of Champions (“TOCs”) that Quito is hosting. Volunteer commitments are around three hours and can range from Scorekeeping, announcing, field prep, to working in the snack shack. Your help is strongly needed and appreciated. Volunteering, however, will not guarantee a spot on the All-Star team. Your child still needs to be drafted to one of the All-Star teams.
Baseball Camps – Coming Soon
- Jaeger Band Training – April 17 from 9:00 to 11:30 – You can still register on line at the league’s website.
- Spring Training Clinic – April 24 from 9:00-12:30. You can find out more details on Quito’s website.
- Sirious Baseball Camp – Summer 2016
PG&E Land & Gate
Some of you may have noticed that there is a gate that locks out vehicles from entering the railroad track area behind the Majors outfield and T-Ball Fields. We are no longer allowed to park in that area, no longer have access to that area on a regular basis and no longer have control over the lock. Therefore, if you decide to park in that area you run the risk of being locked in. To prevent any inconvenience, please find an alternative parking area.
Helping out your kid’s coaches
Please remember that we are an all-volunteer league. We can’t do this without you. Please take the time to help your child’s coach by putting up and taking down the fences, raking the infield, striping the infield, etc. Your help is what makes your child’s and the other children’s’ experience at Quito positive. Please help your coaches.
