New Rule - Effective 2019

 

It has been brought to the attention of the Dapper Dan that an entity referring to itself as “Cumberland Baseball” is actively recruiting players from Cumberland to join its minor league to play this summer.  The Dapper Dan Club of Allegany County has no affiliation with this organization.  We have facilitated little league baseball in Cumberland for the past 69 years, and currently offer four different leagues to the children of Cumberland, ranging in ages from 4 to 12 years old.  Our historic commitment to this ongoing effort has never been stronger and we look forward to continuing to teach your children baseball fundamentals, team work and fun. 

 

The Dapper Dan’s rules prohibit a player or coach in our league from participating in another local league (excluding weekend travel ball) at the same time.  The basis for this rule:

 

 (1.)  Pitcher’s Pitch Count: The most important reason is the safety of a pitcher. The pitch count of a particular player pitching in both leagues would be impossible to control.  It is not feasible to develop a count that would allow them to pitch in both leagues, nor is it fair to either league’s team to reduce a pitch count less than already established.

 

(2.)  Game Scheduling: Scheduling is nearly impossible where kids/parents would have to choose one league versus the other. There is no way to guarantee Minor Division players would have games on different nights in each league the entire year. Asking them to choose one league over the other isn’t fair to the kids or the other players/coaches in the league.
