SLL Sponsorship Program - 2018

Outfield Sign Banner Sponsorship Program
 
Simsbury Little League is now accepting applications
for our 2018 banner program!!

 
 
Thank you for your sponsorship of Simsbury Little League. As a sponsor you are continuing the great tradition that is Simsbury Little League. Simsbury Little League has been teaching Simsbury youth the joy of little league baseball for over 61 years. The league is dependent on registration fees and donations from local businesses to continue to maintain, develop and care for the Little League program and complex. Introduced in 2004, the banner-advertising program provides an opportunity for local businesses to show their support for Simsbury Little League. The money raised with the banner-advertising program goes to improvements made to the fields used by SLL.
 
A banner sponsorship includes the following:
 
  • A 2x8 foot hard backed banner sign, using sponsor's logo, will be hung on the outfield fences of Memorial Park.
  • A rotating web banner located at the top of the home page for SLL’s website (www.simsburylittleleague.com).  The banner will include a link to sponsor's website when available. Our webpage is where all Little League families go to register and to keep informed about upcoming dates.  With over 600 families in our league we have quite a lot of website traffic recorded throughout the year!
 
The cost for the Banner Program is $500.

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!
