WHY BASEBALL?

Did you hear about youth baseball from a friend or neighbor and want to find out more? 

First, you're in the right spot.  Our program is for boys and girls. If you have a child that is interested in baseball regardless of age, have them check us out.  Our Spring season starts in March.

Our site has a tremendous amount of info so please read through the information on all the tabs. Can't find what you are looking for? Just email us and we'll be happy to chat with you. 

Baseball, known as America's pastime has captivated kids for the past decades. Don't worry if your kid has never played, as most kids here haven't so your child is not at a disadvantage.  A lot of kids have only picked up a bat in the last couple of years, and every year we add more new kids to the program.  

 

Little League is structured into four levels:

The First Level: The Local Little League
Each Little League program is organized within a community. As part of a league's charter it establishes its own boundaries with certain restrictions. It is only from within this boundary that the league may register its players.

The Second Level: The District
For administrative and tournament purposes, roughly 10 to 20 leagues in a given area usually comprise a district. The District Administrator is an experienced volunteer elected by the local league Presidents to counsel, direct, and provide leadership in the policies and rules of the Little League program and to serve as liaison between the leagues and the Regional Director.

The Third Level: The Region
The District Administrators report to the Regional Director, of which there are five in the United States. As part of the staff of Little League Baseball, Incorporated, the Regional Directors work out of Regional Centers at Warner Robins, Georgia; San Bernardino, California; Indianapolis, Indiana, Bristol, Connecticut, and Waco, Texas. Representatives for the International regions of Little League maintain offices in Puerto Rico, Canada, Japan and Poland.

The Fourth Level: International Headquarters
Little League operations are led by Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball. Mr. Keener responds to the Little League Board of Directors, which includes nine field District Administrators elected to rotating terms by fellow District Administrators at the Congresses.

The full-time staff members of Little League Baseball, Incorporated, work with District Administrators, their assistants, and local league officials in developing new leagues, coordinating tournaments, and assisting in the overall operation of a local league program. Worldwide, there are about 110 full-time Little League employees (about one for every 40,000 children and adult volunteers).
