2016 Post-Season Tournament Player Eligibility Registration Form

May 16, 2016

Parents:

The 2016 Post-Season Tournament Player Eligibility Registration Form is now available online @ www.UMLL.net or via the following link: 2016 Tournament Registration Form.

The parent/guardian of any player who wishes to be considered for selection to a post-season tournament team must complete and submit the eligibility form on or before Sunday, May 22, 2016, by 11:59PM. If we do not receive an eligibility form for a player by this date/time, that player will NOT be permitted to apply at a later date for any 2016 post-season tournament sponsored by UMLL.

Note: The player eligibility registration form MUST be submitted online; paper copies of the eligibility form will NOT be accepted.

Players who are 'league ages' 7 thru 16 are eligible to participate in the corresponding post-season tournaments.  (The online registration form will present available tournament team options based on the player’s date of birth.)

The tournament eligibility fee of $50 MUST be pre-paid online via PayPal in order to complete the registration process. Failure to remit payment WILL result in your child being ineligible for selection to the tournament team.  IF your child is NOT selected to a tournament team, your $50 fee will be refunded via PayPal promptly once the teams are selected.  (Note: Some tournament managers will conduct tryouts prior to selection of the team; managers will contact parents of eligible players under separate cover with additional details.)

Thank you in advance for your interest in and support of UMLL's post-season tournament teams, and good luck to all of the managers, coaches, and players who will represent UMLL in these tournaments!

Little League Adopts USA Baseball's New Bat Standard Starting in 2018

April 12, 2016

With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. 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. Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.

Sports Concussion Awareness

March 25, 2016

UMLL is providing the following link -- http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/index.html -- to important information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website to help keep our volunteers, including Directors, coaches, umpires, and parents, informed of how to detect and respond to the signs of a concussion in our players.

The goal of the HEADS UP Concussion in Youth Sports initiative is to help ensure the health and safety of young athletes by offering information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The HEADS UP initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.

Embedded within the HEADS UP to Youth Sports program is the same free concussion training program that we are requiring our league directors, managers, coaches, and umpires to complete this pre-season.  As parents of our players, we encourage you to also complete the training course, as well, to ensure all parties who interact with UMLL's players are best prepared to protect our kids.


 

Important Information about Changes to 2016 Baseball League Determination

January 5, 2016

In 2014, Little League Baseball Inc. District Administrators initially voted to move the baseball league age determination date from April 30th to December 31st, effective with the 2018 season.  That change was amended by District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors in August 2015, moving the date from December 31st to August 31st. Effective November 2015, the implementation plan was again amended, grandfathering the four-months of children born between May 1st and August 31, 2005 as 12-year-olds for the 2018 season.

Recently, the UMLL Board of Directors elected to adopt these changes to the Baseball League Age Determination effective with the upcoming 2016 season. These baseball age determination dates will apply to all levels of play at UMLL -- in-house, travel, and tournament.

Please click on the enclosed link to Little League Baseball Inc. webpage for additional information on these recent changes to the Baseball League Age Determination that will impact the upcoming Spring 2016 Baseball season and forward.

Congratulations to UMLL's Senior Baseball Team ... East Region Senior League Champions!!

August 11, 2015

Congratulations to UMLL's 15/16 Baseball (Senior League) tournament team for winning the PA District 22 Senior League Championship, the PA Section 8 Senior League Championship,the Pennsylvania State Senior League Championship, AND the East Regional Senior League Championship!  The team then made it all the way to the Senior League World Series semi-finals with an undefeated 2-0 record, ultimately coming up just one game short of playing for the Senior League World Championship after losing a close semi-final game to eventual repeat champions, West University Place LL from Texas!  Wow!  What an amazing series of accomplishments for a tremendous group of players and coaches!

Not only did the team represent UMLL with precision skill, great determination, cohesive teamwork, and great dignity and sportsmanship on the field, they ignited a tremendous sense of PRIDE across all of UMLL and throughout the entire UM community that reminded us all how special of a place we live in here in our little community.

So, congratulations again and thank you for making us all #UMProud!!!
