Hello, Major Summer Baseball Families, 

A few quick reminders...

 *Please remember to wear a mask at ALL times; coaches and spectators absolutely must keep them on at all times without exception. 

 *Coaches, parents, players - please, please, please maintain appropriate social distancing at all times; maintaining 6 feet or more apart, whenever possible. 

 *As the season progresses, we would like to keep the stands open for spectators. In order to do so, all guidelines must be strictly followed: 

  • Please remember that you are only permitted to sit in the designated seats/rows of the stands. 
  • All areas marked off by yellow tape are OFF LIMITS at all times. 
  • You are ONLY permitted to sit with those from your IMMEDIATE household. This applies to all spectators; adults, children, and teenagers. 
  • If you notice that someone is not seated in the proper seating arrangement, please kindly remind them and/or let your coach/manager know right away so they can assist with the situation. 

*Parents/spectators are not permitted to come onto the field at any time. 

 Furthermore, please note the additional health and safety guidelines that apply to the season:

Please note that all participants, including, but not limited, to players, families, coaches, and spectators, must adhere to all of the following guidelines in order to participate in the summer baseball program. Please also note that the guidelines are subject to change, as directed by our state and local government officials. 

 

Participant Requirements:

 ·      All participants must have already been placed on a spring baseball team within their corresponding age range/division. 

 ·      All participants in the program have been officially assigned to a summer baseball team; this team will not necessarily correlate with your spring baseball team and you may have a different manager/coach/team. 

 ·      There is a wait-list for all players who did not enroll for the program during the open enrollment period. 

 

Player Screening/Health:

·      Prior to attending all games, parents should perform a health screening to ensure that their child is not showing any signs of illness. 

 ·      Any players that have a fever of 100.4° or above and/or other signs of COVID-19 illness are not permitted to attend; including, but not limited, to the following: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, headaches.

 ·      Players must be fever-free, without the use of over-the-counter medicine for at least 48 hours when in attendance. 

 ·      Any player who has had any recent contact with someone who has fallen ill to Covid-19 during the time span of the program must not attend any related baseball events for a 14-day period. 

 ·      At this point in time, it is highly recommended by the state and local officials that anyone who has traveled to any of the documented “hotspots” during the time span of the program should quarantine for 14 days before returning to any related sporting event including the baseball program; please refer to the state/local officials for more information about this mandate. 

 

Social Distancing: 

·      All participants must maintain appropriate social distancing at all times/whenever possible; coaches/players will be required to maintain six feet or more distance from others at all times, unless it is part of an organized “play” during the game (e.g., tagging out, sliding into bases, and/or catching in the dugout while batter is in play, etc.). 

 ·      Players will not be permitted in the dugout when the teams are on offense/batting. All players will be seated in the front rows of the stands in a staggered, distanced seating arrangement. 

 

Masks/Face Coverings:

·      All players must wear a mask/face covering when entering/exiting the fields/space and while in close distance with others 

 ·      Players may take down their mask/face covering when they are performing physical activity on the field; they must wear them at all other times when not taking part in physical activity or when in close contact with others. 

 ·      All coaches must wear a mask/face covering at all times, without exception.

 ·      All spectators/parents are required to wear a mask/face covering at all times while on the property, without exception. 

 

Parents/Spectators:

 ·      There will be limited seating available for parents/spectators in the stands.

All others must be seated at least three seats from all other parties at all times and within six feet of each other in all directions.

 ·      No physically close co-mingling between families/spectators permitted. 

 ·      Parents/spectators are not permitted on the field or in the dugout at any time 

 

Facility/Field: 

·      The field area/facility that will be used for practices/games will post signage in highly-visible locations with reminders of social distancing protocols, face coverings requirements, and hygiene practices. 

 

·      Hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and/or soap and water, or other sanitizing materials will be readily available at any entrances, exits, benches, dugouts and any other area prone to gathering or high traffic.

·      No touch rule will be in place at all times. Participants will refrain from engaging in handshakes, high fives, and other physical contact at all times, without exception. 

 

·      At the end of the game, players will be permitted to utilize alternate means such as “tipping their hats” to honor the game with the other team in a socially distant manner; players will not engage in the classic “good game” line of handshakes after the game, and instead, a safe alternative will take place to allow the modeling of positive sportsmanship to continue. 

 

·      No spitting or eating seeds, gum, or any other food is allowed during pre-game, game time, or at any point while on the property. 

 

·      The sanitizing of all shared equipment will take place at touchpoints throughout the game and will take place as much as deemed necessary; baseballs, bats, catcher’s equipment and other items will be sanitized regularly throughout the game. 

 

·      Players/coaches will sanitize their hands prior to entering the field, at various touchpoints during the game, and before exiting the field after the game. Sanitizer will be made readily available to all players/coaches during the game. 

 

Players/coaches are strongly urged to utilize the restrooms prior to coming to the game. However, the use of the restrooms will inevitably be needed. Players/coaches are to utilize the restrooms one at a time and must wash/

Dear Little League® Families and Volunteers,

It’s officially spring. We should be getting out our lawn chairs, celebrating opening days, and hitting the Little League fields. We’re not. We know you want to get out and play baseball and softball, so do we. The time spent on fields around the world is so important – where memories are made, and life lessons are learned.

Over the past few days, as we have announced our recommendation to refrain from Little League-related activities until May 11, we’ve heard from many of you. As this situation evolves, Little League International is committed to sharing the best guidance possible for all its 6,500 leagues in more than 84 countries. We are here for you.

First, it is our sincere hope that we can find ways to bring everyone back to the Little League fields this season, whether that’s later this spring, throughout the summer, or into the fall. This year’s Little League season won’t be the traditional one that we’ve held for more than 80 years, but this is about more than just a Little League season.

We are closely consulting with appropriate medical advisers and our volunteer leaders around the world, and we are committed to doing the best thing for the safety and well-being of all our players, families, volunteers, and fans. As soon as our public health authorities say it’s safe to gather again, we are committed to working with our leagues to helping them get those playing opportunities underway when appropriate.

At this time, Little League International is also working through all possible scenarios for the 2020 Little League International Tournament, including our seven Little League World Series tournaments, and tournament eligibility for our leagues and players.

The Little League experience is a rite of passage for so many children, and we know that this is frustrating and sad, especially for those players in their 12-year-old season. We sincerely hope that everyone gets an opportunity to play this year, and we’ll work hard to make that happen as soon as we can.

Most importantly, we ask you for your patience. Your Little League program’s leadership is working hard to understand how the Coronavirus is going to impact them locally. We know that many leagues have been working hard to prepare to provide a great Little League experience for the families of their community and have already ordered equipment, jerseys, and other associated items for the season. We are urging all parents and families to be patient as we work with their local Little League programs throughout this ever-evolving situation.

Because each local Little League program is an independent organization, the local leadership must ultimately make the decision whether to continue as usual, or to suspend league activities. We encourage parents to require their league and district leadership to follow the CDC recommended guidelines.

While this means that we need to take a break from gathering at Little League-organized activities, the games of baseball and softball live on. Go outside and have a catch, time your speed running 60 feet (or 70 or 90), take some swings off the tee. We encourage you to check out our resources on LittleLeagueUniversity.org including our Backyard Tips. Also, we’ll be showing archived Little League World Series baseball and softball games on Facebook.com/LittleLeague, and the World of Little League®Museum has virtual educational opportunities through Facebook, as well.

Perhaps what we’re most excited about is our Little League Pep Talks. Messages from former Little League Baseball® World Series star, Todd Frazier, and Olympic Softball Medalist, Cat Osterman, MLB Network Broadcaster, Harold Reynolds, and ESPN Analyst, Jessica Mendoza, and many more are providing Little Leaguers® all around the world with a sense of positivity and hope as communities work together to stop the spread and return to the ballfields. We encourage you to follow #LLPepTalk on social media and even make your own Pep Talk that you can tag @LittleLeague in and share using the hashtag.

There are countless suggestions and resources available, and we urge you to follow the information available through World Health OrganizationCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your state’s public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments), and other county and/or local authorities including precedents set by area school districts and government agencies.

This is bigger than Little League, and if we work together, it is our hope that by suspending/delaying our Little League seasons, we will all play a small, but important part in flattening the curve in the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Thank you all for your support, understanding, and patience.

We encourage you to stay in touch with Little League and share any additional feedback or questions from your local communities by emailing SeasonUpdate@LittleLeague.org.

We will be thinking of our global Little League community during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Steve Keener signature

BOUNDARY MAPS

REMINDERS

Boundary Maps - Remember to check the online maps in the data center to make sure your maps are correct.  I have said multiple times since last year that this will be the deciding factor, not any hand shake agreement or what you understand you boundary to be.  So please review.

 

Little League® Data Center adds ASAP:

As Little League® International continues to develop online options to service its leagues and districts, be aware that the Little League Data Center now provides for online ASAP Plan submission. If local league plans are approved by Monday, April 2, 2018, that District will receive a cash award as result of the ASAP participation incentive. For a local league to receive the credit award, the submission deadline is April 16, 2018.

• To submit your 2018 Season ASAP Safety Plan online, log in to the Little League Data Center and choose "Submit/View 2018 Season ASAP Safety Plan."

• For 2018, it is required that local leagues charter using the Little League Data Center and also submit the necessary information for split leagues, Interleague Play and Combined Teams.

Little League® has updated its Regulations, Playing Rules, and Operating Polices for the 2018 season. Please review the adjustments and become familiar with the changes and revisions to the guidelines that govern the Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® programs.

Tax Exempt Status Reminder:

It is the local league's responsibility to submit a federal tax return to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Any non-profit organization that does not file the proper 990 Form with the IRS for three consecutive years automatically loses its federal tax exemption resulting in the organization's income becoming taxable and contributors being unable to report their contributions as tax deductions. This year's filing deadline is February 15, 2018 . Please include the League I.D. Number and Employer Identification Number (E.I.N.) on the tax return along with the correct name and address of the current League President. Each separately chartered league, even if operated by the same board, is required to have its own E.I.N. and file a separate return. Forms and instructions are available on the IRS website at www.IRS.gov. The address where the tax return should be filed is: Internal Revenue Service Center -- Ogden, Utah 84201-0027

It is also the responsibility of each league to furnish Little League Baseball® Incorporated with a copy of your league's annual financial report. This is a requirement of any league enrolled under the Little League Federal Group Tax Exemption and 501(c)(3) organizational status. There is a sample financial statement in the Little League resource guide and on LittleLeague.org. Please be sure your League I.D. Number is noted on the financial statement. If you haven't already done so, please forward a copy of your league's financial statement to: 

Little League Baseball, Incorporated
539 U.S. Highway 15
P. O. Box 3485
Williamsport, PA 17701-0485

In 1939 Little League Baseball is founded by Carl Stotz, who enlists help from others in the community. Mr. Stotz, George Bebble and Bert Bebble are the first three managers. ... A $30 donation is sufficient to purchase uniforms for each of the first three teams, named after their sponsors: Lycoming Dairy, Lundy Lumber, and Jumbo Pretzel. … The first season is played in a vacant lot near the outfield fence of Bowman Field.

In 1951, just 12 years later Hoboken, N.J. is granted a charter in Little League Baseball. The league name was Hoboken Recreation League; our first President was Thomas A. Gallo, Vice-President Jerry Malloy, and Treasurer Tony Calland. The league consisted of four teams, Unico Club managed by Dick Canzano, Recreation managed by James Clyons, J.J. Pascale managed by Tony Calland, and City Democrates managed by Sal Salenga. They played a 12 game Season.

In 1952 we were charted as the Hoboken Little League, but we only charted 3 teams, the Gallo Club, Unico Club, and City Club.

In 1953, we charted two leagues, the Hoboken Recreation Little League and the Hoboken Recreation League North, with John J. Grogan serving as President of the Leagues, and Thomas A. Gallo serving as Commissioner. The HRLL had four teams, Colts, Bears, Cubs, Yanks; the North Charter also had four teams, Yankees, Giants, Dodgers, Indians.

In 1954, with John Mellow as President, the League charted a South League and a North League, the North consisted of the Nelson’s, Gallo’s, Kiwanis, and Casalino’s, while the South, consisted of the Giants, Yanks, Dodgers, and Red Sox.

In 1955, the South had the Nelson’s, Gallo’s, Kiwanis, and Casalino’s, while the North Had Pascale’s’ Silon’s, Borelli’s, and Unico.

In 1956, the league is realigned and the North has the Unico, Kiwanis, Lions, and Silon’s, while the South has the Casalino’s, Borelli’s, Nelson’s, and Gallo’s.

In 1957 the South grows to 6 teams, the Casalino’s, Elks, Borelli’s, Gallo’s, Nelson’s, and Muzzi’s, while the North stays the same with four teams.

In 1958, with Salvatore D’Amelio as President the North adds two teams, P.A.L. and Smith & Owens, making six teams in each charter.

In 1959, the South now consists of four teams, Casalino’s, Gallo’s, Nelson’s, and Troy’s, with the north having six teams, the P.A.L., smith & Owens, Silons, V>F>W., I.L.A. and Muzzi.

In 1960 the North drops the Silons, and adds the C.W.V. and the South stays the same.

In 1962 Charles C. Casalino is President both leagues stay the same, but the South has an 18 game schedule while the North has a 15 game schedule and all rosters have 15 players.

In 1963 the North drops Muzzi and Smith & Owens, but adds the Nekoboh’s, and Local 560, while the South stays the same.

In 1964 both the North and South have 6 teams; records no longer identify the teams in the league.

League Presidents: 1951-Thomas a. Gallo, 1953- John J. Grogan, 1954-John Mellow, 1958-Salvatore D’Amelio, 1962-Charles C. Casalino, 1980 James J. Farina 1995 Tim Calligy, 2001 Anthony Cardino, 2006 James J. Farina, was again named as League President and is still serving the Hoboken Little League.
In 1972 Hoboken native Maria Pepe, at age 12, pitched three Little League games for the Young Democrats team. This was the same team which her friends from the neighborhood had joined, so she joined as well, after having been invited to play by Little League coach Jim Farina. Pepe was asked to leave the team after the Little League "threatened to revoke Hoboken's charter. The refusal to allow Pepe to play attracted the attention of the National Organization for Women (NOW).  A court case began on Pepe's behalf, which was supported by NOW. Ultimately the New Jersey Superior Court decided that Little League must allow girls to try out. As a result, the Little League organization began a program specifically for girls starting in 1974.
Pepe became a minor celebrity and drew media attention to various women's causes at the time. The New York Yankees made her an honorary "Yankee for a day".
In 2004 she lent her glove and hat to the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. On August 20, 2004 she was also honored by Little League Baseball by being asked to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the 2004 Little League World Series in South Williamsport.
In 2009 Little International granted the Hoboken little league North and South Charters permission to merge. And play under one Charter
