Summer Ball and Changes in Board

RECENT DEPARTURES: The EGLL Board is sad to announce that EGLL board members Christopher DeJesus and Alicia DeJesus have decided to step down from their positions as President and Information Officer, respectively, of the East Granby Little League.  In place of Mr. DeJesus, Brandon Freeman has been named interim President.  In place of Mrs. DeJesus, Phil Donagher has been named interim Information Officer.

 

SUMMER BASEBALL: Due to low enrollment from East Granby players, the East Granby Little League will unfortunately not be able to form summer baseball teams at the farm, AA or AAA levels.  As recently as this week, EGLL was diligently attempting to place all players who signed up for summer baseball with a team from surrounding towns, but was unable to secure placement.  Full refunds will be afforded to those who signed up.  Any player who signed up for Majors summer baseball will be placed on a joint Granby/East Granby team.  EGLL apologizes for any inconvenience that this may cause.

END-OF-SEASON SURVEY

In order to continue to improve as a league, the EGLL Board has asked for your thoughts and feedback at the end of each season.  These surveys are heavily relied upon to evaluate prospective coaches as well as build upon our coaching clinics for the following season. We ask that you continue to be honest and open with your answers as all responses will be anonymous.  We appreciate all feedback.

Thank you, 
EGLL Board of Directors

VOLUNTEER REFUND FEE

UPDATE: 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.
 
Reminder ~ As stated in the “Volunteer Policy” on the EGLL website parents should turn in their COMPLETED Volunteer Completion Refund Form to their Parent Manager by the last game of the season. The Parent Manager will then return the completed forms to Dawn Flanagan no later than July 1st. If a parent fails to return to the Parent Manager by their last regular season game, the parent must ensure it is brought to Dawn Flanagan before July 1st for reimbursement. Cash refunds will be handed out before July 15th (times and location will be sent out once the bulk of forms are received). Anyone who has submitted a form and cannot make it for the cash refund will receive a check in the mail after July 15th. If you are not sure that you will make the cash handout please list an address on the form you would like the refund returned to.  No refunds will be issued after July 15th. 

Please be aware, each family is responsible for completing their own forms- Board Members, Coaches, and Parent Managers can sign off hours as they are completed but you must provide them the form to sign off. Families should try to get the forms signed off as they complete tasks and once all hours are completed it can be turned over to the Team Parent Manager. Any form NOT turned over to the Parent Manager will be the families responsibility to return to the Coordinator of Parent Managers - Dawn Flanagan before the July 1st deadline. You should also keep a copy for your records.
 
Parent Managers & Coaches- please complete a form and just write “Parent Manager” or “Coach” across the task/signoff area.
 
Any questions please contact Dawn at  .
 
Thank you,
EGLL Board of Director

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.
