Fall Registration now open

For those new to the league below is some information about our Fall season. Both softball & baseball are played in leagues based out of York. Fall is a great season for players to continue to expand their skills however more travel is involved especially for baseball as games can be played anywhere in York or Adams County. For both sports, games are only played on Saturdays and/ or Sundays.  Teams entered in each age group will depend on the number of players that register. Players wishing to play in the fall season with Littlestown do not have any residency restrictions. Currently we have no residency restrictions with either season of our softball program, but in spring baseball players must reside in our school district. This is not the case for Fall baseball, players from out of town are more then welcome to play with the Littlestown teams in Fall. Softball 10U, 12U, 14U+ is offered. Teams play doubleheaders each weekend either on Saturday or Sunday. Games start the weekend after Labor Day and teams will play doubleheaders 6 of the 8 weekends through October.
Baseball ages are slightly different as the Fall league prepares players for the next spring season. The age groups in fall baseball are 7U, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15....All games start the weekend after Labor Day7U plays 8 single games.  There are two different levels of 7U, all coach pitch and progressive kid pitch.  A decision will be made once registration is complete which level any 7U team will play. 8-9 plays 10 single games over the 8 weeks ending in October.  Ten games requires the team to play 2 weekends both Saturday and Sunday.10-11, 12-13, 14-15+ teams play doubleheaders 5 out of the first 6 weekends.  On the 7th weekend there is a 3 game round robin where the team will play both Sat & Sun that weekend. Based on the teams record in round robin play they may qualify for the single elimination bracket that starts the last weekend in October that may last both Sat & Sun that last weekend. Unfortunately we do not offer t-ball in the fall at this time. However if a player played 7U softball this past Spring and is interested I would suggest registering for 10U softball. For players interested in baseball this fall, if they played t-ball 6 this past spring then 7U baseball would be perfect. In the past with the Fall season we were able to hold an informal registration and determine the cost per player later based on the number of players and team sponsorships. With moving to online registration we were required to set a fixed registration fee ahead of time for each player. At the beginning, of August we will start a sub sale for the fall teams and we are asking anyone registered for fall to sell a minimum of 5 subs/ sandwiches. The profit from these sales were taken into consideration when setting the registration fees. Please keep in mind that especially for baseball the league experiences a much higher league fee to enter our players in the York league and levels 12+ have 2 umpires for each game. Here are the fees for Fall:
Softball- $40 per player
Baseball 7U- $30 per player
                8-9 $60 per player 
              10+- $90 per player.
The last few years in fall baseball we have used team sponsorships to offset the cost of nicer jerseys for the players.  This year we are going to try to do the same.  The above fees include uniform jerseys that are currently being worn in Rookie-Majors & 10U softball.  However if we are able to locate team sponsorships at $250 per sponsorship the money will be used to purchase nicer jersey in both baseball and softball equally.  All sponsorships would need to be confirmed and paid by August 1st. Please remember that all donations are tax deductible. Please keep an eye out for an email very soon announcing registration is open and on our Facebook page.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you,
Matt Albright
