BASEBALL IS BACK AT LATROBE LITTLE LEAGUE !!!

BASEBALL IS BACK AT LATROBE LITTLE LEAGUE !!!
 
Latrobe Little Leaguers,
 
Latrobe Little League Board met tonight to discuss the opening of baseball.  The Board voted to play a shortened season for all 3 divisions.  The draft for the Majors will be Wednesday night and practices will start Saturday, June 6th.  The draft for the Minors and Coach Pitch will be the following week and they will start practicing June13th. 
 
The Majors will start games on June 14th, Sunday.  They will play a 15 game schedule ending on July 26th.  All teams will play in an end of the season tournament with 2 pools of 3 teams each.  This will give each team 2 more games.  The top team in each pool will play for the championship ending on August 2nd.  
 
Tentatively, the Minors will start practice June 13th and start games June 20th or June 27th.  This will be discussed next week and  I will send out an email once we determine exact dates.
 
This year presents some issues for the league, mainly in fundraising. The concession stand is not allowed to be open as per Little League International.  The Board voted to not have any fundraisers this year, so there will be no envelope drive, no candy sales, no concession stand money and no gun bash.  This is how our league raises our yearly income for the uniforms, field maintenance, baseballs, field dry, and the bills.  The Board has decided in lieu of fundraisers this year, that we are going to use the concession stand deposits to buy shirts and hats for the players to keep.  Also the concession stand deposits will help pay for the umpires as well.  We hope that all the parents understand why this decision was made.
 
Also, if anyone would like to donate or knows of a business that would like donate to our league, then have them mail donations to:
