Volunteers Needed
The best volunteers are those who are able to bring added enjoyment simply being themselves. What you see during games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer. You can volunteer to help in virtually any aspect where you have interest.

Reasons to Volunteer at MPTLL
Little League Baseball 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, MPTLL relies on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs smoothly. We are always looking for responsible and enthusiastic individuals to support and coordinate events and activities. Our volunteers have a keen interest in the safety, well-being, and overall development of children. The benefits of volunteering are endless and we hope the following information will help you gain a better understanding of where you could get involved 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! MPTLL has volunteers that 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 with MPTLL 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, some individuals may be denied the privilege of volunteering for reasons, past or present, that may be detrimental to the positive development of young people, other volunteers, and/or MPTLL.  We hope you will complete the volunteer information form and give MPTLL the right to conduct necessary background checks.
