Donations for Paradise LL
by posted 12/05/2018

Many Danville parents have asked me how to help the families and Little Leaguers in Butte County that have been displaced or lost homes and property in the Camp Fire.  I’ve been in contact with the Little League District 47 Administrator and the Paradise LL President.  We’ve got several ideas already, two of which are available now for those interested.


First,  we will host a clothing and equipment drive this Saturday 12/8 between 9:30-11am at Osage Park.  Families there are particularly in need of cleats, belts, socks, dry fits, gloves. . . the basics.  Anything new or gently used/reusable, bring it to the park this weekend and we’ll make sure it gets to the folks in Chico that are hosting a free distribution for Paradise LL families next weekend.  If you can't make it Saturday, let me know so we can connect with you directly.


Second, Paradise LL has a Gofundme site to raise funds to repair fields and buy equipment.  Most Paradise families lost everything, but their board is very motivated to keep baseball and softball seasons on track for the spring, even though they'll likely play in neighboring towns that were less impacted.  Donating there is another easy way to help if you are interested.


With our first registration deadline at the end of next week, I plan to send more details about our upcoming 2019 Danville season soon.  Wanted to get the word out quickly on this for those that are around and able to donate this weekend.

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.



Steve Pugh – DLL Upper Division Director
