For any EGLL teams using the Apple Tree/Tender Care Learning Center Field:
Apple Tree/Tender Care Learning Center 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 6:15 pm. 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 Apple Tree/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 nobody 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.
***REMINDER...NO caps are allowed to be worn under batting helmets. Neoprene sleeves may be worn but must be covered by a solid (non-white or grey ) shirt. Also, all jewelry will have to be removed prior to the game. It is suggested to hold off on new ear piercings until after the season as studs will have to be removed.
Umpire registration is now open for the 2015 season. Click here for a link to the registration page. Anyone 13 and older willing to attend umpire training is eligible to register. Training dates not yet known but there will be several to choose from. All umpires over age 15 will also be required to submit a volunteer application for a background check. Anyone under age 13 or with questions regarding the job should contact Michele Marin at
The Spring 2015 Season is approaching fast. With the new Baseball and Softball season upon us, we will continue implementing a volunteer fee. Many Little Leagues and other Sport Leagues have incorporated this fee into the registration system. We, as your Board, have heard many excellent things about it and hope that it will have a positive impact on our program as well.
Here is how it will work...
Registration costs will increase to $110 per player for Baseball and Softball and $65 for Tee Ball. In addition, there will also be a $50 family volunteer fee per family payable upon registration. The family registration will be capped at $245 for Tee Ball and $295 for Baseball and Softball (this includes the $50 family volunteer fee).
The volunteer fee is the same for each family no matter how many children you have registered in EGLL. The fee will be refunded to you via a check at the end of the Spring 2015 season AFTER you have fulfilled your volunteer requirement. The amount of hours you are required to volunteer will vary depending on how many children you have registered with EGLL. Should you choose not to volunteer, your $50 fee will NOT be refunded.
As a volunteer with EGLL, there will be many ways throughout the season to meet your requirement. Each team will have a mandatory Team Parent who will assist the Board with the tracking of volunteer hours. Some examples of how you can fulfill your volunteer requirement are:
Titled Position within EGLL
Rock Cats Liaison
All volunteers are required to fill out a volunteer form to be eligible for a refund. If a volunteer form is not filled out and submitted unfortunately you will not be able to receive the $50 refund at the end of the season. More information on volunteer positions can be located under the Volunteers tab of the website.
