Welcome to the 2018 DLL Season
by posted 01/21/2018


 
Welcome to the 2018 Danville Little League season!  On behalf of the board, thank you for registering, volunteering and supporting the league again this season.  We are looking forward to another fun, competitive year.  Our registration is right where we expected it to be.  In fact, we added a 10th Majors team to accommodate a larger-than-usual number of 11 and 12 year old players.  We'll have Majors games at Osage just about every day between March 1 and June 1.
 
The on-field part of our 2018 schedule starts this week with tryouts for 9-12 year olds.  Our Majors, AAA, and AA drafts are scheduled for Saturday 1/27.  Tryout dates for upper division Intermediate, Juniors, and Seniors teams are in January as well.  Registration is still open for our younger divisions until 2/15.  Rosters for those teams are published in late February and early March.  It's also not too late to register to coach or umpire.  And we're always recruiting team and league level sponsors.  If you have a small business in Danville and want to advertise on our jerseys or Osage fences, register here.
 
We're getting lots of questions about the change LLB is implementing for bats.  We will continue to share details on those new requirements and why LLB is making the change.  If you haven’t decided what size or are confused about the new bat requirements, we will have several bats of different sizes available to examine and use at this week's tryouts.
 
Keep an eye on our league calendar for upcoming board meetings as well as umpire, player, and safety training dates.  We anticipate grass fields opening around March 1, weather permitting.  And, looking ahead to the season, we have a few new things planned this year with Dick's Sporting Goods in Dublin, our social media pages, and regular Friday evening player training sessions at Osage.  This year's Carnival and Challenger division games will be on Sunday 5/6.  And we'll have our usual Little League Days with the Giants (Sunday 4/8) and A's (Sunday 4/22).
 
 
I am looking forward to a great season.  Thanks again for your support.  Any questions or suggestions, let me know.

Baseball After Majors...
by posted 09/10/2017


 

Baseball after Majors...


Hello Former Majors Parents,

Now that DLL Majors has wrapped up I know many of you are thinking about what is the next step for your son in regards to baseball. With my last calculations, I added up 10 different local baseball programs that are available to 13 year olds next spring. With 10 programs, choosing one can be a daunting task. Some of the programs are invitation only (coach contacts you) and most offer professional coaching at different price levels.  But are they what’s best for you players enjoyment of the game?

Over the past few years Danville Little League (DLL) has offered a Spring program for 13 year olds called the” Intermediate” (50 & 70 foot base paths) program (players born on or after 9/1/2004). There are two levels in the Intermediate program "Gold”, which is a competitive advanced level team chosen at the beginning of the season thru tryouts, and "House", which is made up of kids who just want to play ball. The Gold program is professionally coached by the Aces Baseball Staff, run by Jim Grant, and the House program is coached by Dads, just like in Majors. Being that the Gold program is professionally coached; the fee is priced accordingly, but is lower than most programs outside DLL. The House program is priced similar to last year in Majors. All DLL Intermediate programs are housed locally (Danville) with local practices and games (located within District 57).  Many of the games are played at Osage Field #3.  The Gold team also has a District All Star Tournament and World Series and may travel a bit further to play in a few outside tournaments. There will be more information from DLL on these programs coming. Tryouts for the Intermediate Gold program are held in late August.  They play a fall tournament season and then a regular local D57season starting in March and ending in Mid-June.  House teams will be formed in late January with a player evaluation held at Sycamore Park turf TBA.  Please wear tennis shoes on the turf.  We are also looking for team Managers and Coaches. 

For the 14 year olds (players born on or after 9/1/2003) we have a very similar program that has a “House” league, and a “Gold” league which is equivalent to the 13’s Gold team.  This division is called Junior 90’s.  The Junior 90’s Gold team will be professionally coached by Darren Nicholson, owner of Hit Lab Sports, with tryouts held in mid-October, TBA. This division plays on a 90 foot diamond to get the kids ready for high school.

Looking a few years ahead there are also Seniors House and Gold programs for the 15 and 16 year olds (born on or before 9/1/2001).

All sign-ups are through the DLL Web site. As always, you can contact me if you have any questions or want to talk about what’s out there for your son next year.

Little League Intermediate World Series Update 
 
The Intermediate (13s) team from Danville is undefeated in the LLIWS thus far!  They beat a very tough team from New Jersey (East Region Champions) Sunday night by a score of 3 to 2.  Pitching and error free defense helped bring home the win in front of a huge pro District 57/Danville crowd.  Danville then followed up with a solid performance Monday night beating the South East Region Champs from West Texas 6 to 1. 
 
Danville plays TONIGHT (scheduled for a 6pm start) against the defending World Series champions from Maui, Hawaii in the winners bracket final.  The winner will play in the US championship on Saturday at 5pm (televised on ESPN 3).  Please come out to support your local team.  More details can be found at http://intermediateworldseries.org/.  We recommend you check this website to monitor the timing of games throughout the day.  It's possible the game may start a little later than 6pm.

New LLB Bat Regulations for 2018
by posted 12/16/2016

Little League Baseball® Bat Standard Will Change in 2018

If your player is looking for a new bat for the 2017 Season, please be aware of a new standard that will require new bats for the 2018 season.

This is across all divisions: Tee Ball, Minor, Major, Intermediate (50/70), and Junior League.

Picture of Baseball Bats on a Rack

From Little League Baseball®:

Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball® will adhere to the new USABat standard. No bats previously approved for use in Little League Play (Junior League Baseball and below) will be permitted to be used in any Little League game or practice, or other Little League function, event, or activity.

What this means for local Little Leagues, and Little League baseball players in the Tee Ball through Junior League Divisions, as well as Little League Challenger Division®, is that all current Little League-approved bats can be used during the 2017 Little League regular season and throughout tournament play, but can no longer be used starting in 2018. All of Little League’s current bat regulations will remain in effect until December 31, 2017. Be aware that this new bat standard effects Little League Baseball only. There are no changes to the bat standard or regulations for Little League Softball®.
