Fall Ball Registration

Fall Ball registration is open 

 

Due to the enthusiasm and success of the Simsbury Little League Summer Season, the Board of Directors is considering having a fall season. This new fall season may not look like previous fall seasons due to registration numbers and will be dependent on having enough players register.

The season will only be open to Simsbury residents. If we do not have enough kids register, registration fees will be automatically refunded. The cost is $50. The season will run similar to previous fall seasons, end of August through about Columbus Day. Once we see who would like to play, we will provide more information about number of games and structure of the season.

 

Deadline for AA, AAA and Majors registration is Friday, August 21!

The Online Registration System for our Fall Baseball season is now open. No registrations will be accepted after August 21. To register, use the "Register Online" tab on the left side of our website.


Our fall program is for players who are baseball age 7-11.

Reminder: Summer All-Star registration closes Tuesday
Believe it or not, the Little League season will be wrapping up soon!
 
Based on guidance from District 6 and the State, we are proceeding with planning for an All-Star season.  Here is what we know today – obviously, all of this is subject to change for a variety of reasons (including, if enough teams in a bracket register to play):
  • Majors Division
    • Districts scheduled to start on or around 8/28
    • Sectionals scheduled to start on or around 9/19
    • Initial plan is to have a State Tournament – scheduled to be played the weekend of September 26th and 27th and the weekend of October 3rd and 4th
  • 11 year old Division
    • Districts only; scheduled to start the first week of September and typically runs for approximately 2 weeks
  • 9/10 year old Division
    • Districts only; scheduled to start the first week of September and typically runs for approximately 2 weeks
*  Practice for the All-Star teams is projected to begin sometime around the week of August 17  th.
 
Given the above, an important step is determining how many players have interest in being considered for their respective All-Star team,  and are available to play.  As a reminder, being selected to one of the D6 All Star teams is an honor that requires significant player and parent commitment.  Below is information regarding the criteria for being a D6 All Star player.  The cost for District 6 All-Star teams is still being determined.  It will be somewhere around $165 per player.
  • Eligibility– The player needs to be age appropriate for the team he is chosen to participate on.  The player must have played 60% of his team’s regular season games.  The player must be a Simsbury resident as of 2/1 or attend a school in Simsbury.
  • Availability– The players selected are expected to participate in all practices and games of the D6 tournament.   There will be 5-7 practices per week. It is expected that players will be available during the All Star practices & tournament times so please consider this commitment seriously as it is a family decision. Any conflicts need to be listed as part of the registration process.
 
D6 Team Criteria

Mandatory District 6 All-Star Manager’s Meeting – August 23rd at 4:00pm at the Tri-Town Little League Pavilion
 
 
D6 All Star Team - Playing Time Expectations
It is an honor to be selected to an All-Star team.  This truly means that your child is recognized as the best of the best amongst their peer group.  Having said that, the All-Star teams will prioritize team success and advancement.  This may mean that your son or daughter plays the minimum amount of innings in the field and/or at-bats during games, even though they have attended all of the mandatory practices.  If there are 13 kids on the roster, minimum playing time is 1 at-bat per game.  If there are fewer than 13 kids on the roster, the minimum playing time is 1 at-bat and 6 consecutive defensive outs in the field, per game.  This may be challenging for you or your child to reconcile – considering they are at the top of their age group – and they were probably one of, if not the best player on their team during the regular season.  Only you know how you or your child will react to this situation.  Please only register for All-Star consideration if you fully understand this.
 
If your child is interested in being considered, and is available per the requirements listed above, please register by Tuesday, August 11th. To register, click on the registration tab on the left hand side.

Tommy Tanski Memorial Scholarships

Tommy Tanski
Tommy Tanski Memorial Scholarships


Each year Simsbury Little League offers four $1500 scholarships to current High School seniors.  These scholarships are offered to seniors who participated in either the baseball or softball Little League program here in Simsbury.  The scholarships are given in memory of Tommy Tanski, who was a Simsbury High School junior, and a former Little League player, but passed away in a car accident in 2011.  

Tommy Tanski played Little League from 1999-2005 and during that time played for two district All Star Teams. He also played for the Strikers soccer team and played soccer in High School.  Tommy was a tremendous teammate and understood that his contribution was more about the team than any one individual.  

For many, the time playing Simsbury Little League baseball or softball is something to be cherished for years to come.  It is when friendships are formed, character is built and memories are made. During the registration process, please consider donating towards this scholarship fund and helping SLL continue to provide them in memory of Tommy Tanski.

To make a direct donation to this fund, please click HERE.

Thank-you!

SLL & Youth Umpires

Simsbury Little League

Youth Umpires

Simsbury Little League's baseball and softball games are generally umpired by youth umpires.  We wanted to take this opportunity to explain to all our families the expectations we have regarding interactions with umpires. Regardless of the umpire’s age the SLL policy is that all judgment calls stand and managers, coaches and spectators are not to argue or attempt to influence these calls.  This includes any sort of gestures or sounds of disagreement.  Simply put, please support letting the umpires umpire.

All umpires will make mistakes regardless of their skill level and experience.  With 80+ umpires in the program it is an on-going task to keep up with training needs.  Please remember that our youth umpires are trying their best and are generally out there without anyone cheering them on in the stands or giving them those words of encouragement when mistakes are made.  They too are developing their game and we as a league have adopted a zero-tolerance policy to make sure there is an appropriate atmosphere for everyone involved in games at Memorial Fields.

In 2012, our League President at the time, Tom Benneche, wrote a letter to the SLL Community entitled "They Are All Our Kids!".  Below is a link to this letter as it embodies SLL's expectations regarding youth umpires.  

They Are All Our Kids! 
(May 15, 2012)


 
 

Below is a summary of our expectations and policies regarding our umpires:


The only adult who may approach a youth umpire with a question is the manager of the team.


No assistant coaches may have a discussion with a youth umpire during the game.


No one should “coach” the umpire during the game or give them “friendly tips”.  This includes coaches and/or spectators.


Assistant coaches and managers may not guide or influence judgment calls.  

Coaches and spectators should not yell out “strike” or “ball” before the umpire even has a chance to make their call.  Please let the umpires call the game without any assistance.


Thank-you in advance for adhering to our policies and remembering that

the youth Umpires Are Our Kids!
