SLL Fall Baseball Registration Open
Fall Baseball registration is open 
 

Deadline for AA, AAA and Majors registration is August 19!

The Online Registration System for our Fall Baseball season is now open. 

No registrations will be accepted after August 19. 

To register, use the "Register Online" tab on the left side of our website.

 

For more information on our fall program, please click HERE.

Our fall program is for Simsbury players who are baseball age 7-11. The cost is $125. 

 
AA Division  
Ages 7-8: DOB 9/1/2012-8/31/2014
This division is designed for the players who played baseball in the spring and will be playing AA next spring.
ALL 7 and 8 year olds will be placed in this division. There are no exceptions.

AAA Division
Ages 9-10: DOB 9/1/2010-8/31/2012
This division is designed for the 9-year-old AA player who is moving up to AAA and the AAA player looking to improve their skills. 

Majors Division
Ages 10-11: DOB 9/1/2009-8/31/2011
This division is designed for the players who are moving up to Majors or who played Majors in the spring.
 

Babe Ruth Baseball (Ages 12)

Players who are baseball age 12 should register for the Babe Ruth League.  This is a separate organization (http://simsburybaberuth.com/) and the registration is not through Simsbury Little League. Babe Ruth is structured similar to SLL and is a recreational league where everyone who registers makes a team. Because players play up in the fall, if you were baseball age 12 in the spring, you must move on to Babe Ruth in the fall. Babe Ruth has a developmental program to get kids used to the larger field in the fall, so it is most benefical for kids to move up at this time so that they are ready for the spring season. For that reason, we will not accomodate these players in our fall league.

 

At this time, we are not accommodating out of town players for our Fall Ball league. If conditions change, we will reconsider. 

 

Thank you!

SLL & Youth Umpires

Simsbury Little League

Youth Umpires

Simsbury Little League's baseball and softball games are generally umpired by youth umpires.  We wanted to take this opportunity to explain to all our families the expectations we have regarding interactions with umpires. Regardless of the umpire’s age, the SLL policy is that all judgment calls stand and managers, coaches and spectators are not to argue or attempt to influence these calls.  This includes any sort of gestures or sounds of disagreement.  Simply put, please support letting the umpires umpire.

All umpires will make mistakes regardless of their skill level and experience.  With 80+ umpires in the program it is an on-going task to keep up with training needs.  Please remember that our youth umpires are trying their best and are generally out there without anyone cheering them on in the stands or giving them those words of encouragement when mistakes are made.  They too are developing their game and we as a league have adopted a zero-tolerance policy to make sure there is an appropriate atmosphere for everyone involved in games at Memorial Fields.

 

 

Below is a summary of our expectations and policies regarding our umpires:


The only adult who may approach a youth umpire with a question is the manager of the team.


No assistant coaches may have a discussion with a youth umpire during the game.


No one should “coach” the umpire during the game or give them “friendly tips”.  This includes coaches and/or spectators.


Assistant coaches and managers may not guide or influence judgment calls.  

Coaches and spectators should not yell out “strike” or “ball” before the umpire even has a chance to make their call. 
Please let the umpires call the game without any assistance.


Local rule 10.3  Encouraging Sportsmanshipd

Managers, coaches and players shall make every effort to urge parents and other spectators to respect the decisions of the umpires. The home plate umpire may suspend

play in any game where spectators are guilty of unsportsmanlike conduct. If the behavior continues, the umpire will suspend the game until the guilty spectator leaves the area of the field.  If the spectator is unaffiliated with either team, the game will be suspended until the situation is resolved. In extreme or unresolvable situations, the police should be called.

 

In 2012, our League President at the time, Tom Benneche, wrote a letter to the SLL Community entitled "They Are All Our Kids!"  
Below is a link to this letter as it embodies SLL's expectations regarding youth umpires.  

They Are All Our Kids! 
(May 15, 2012)


 

Thank you in advance for adhering to our policies and remembering that

the youth umpires are our kids!

Equipment update: Batting helmet cages

Equipment update: Batting helmet cages are required

Please note: It is a Simsbury Little League local rule that face cages must be worn on batting helmets both batting on the fields and in the batting cages at all levels except t-ball. There will be no exceptions to this rule. C-flaps are not legal in our league. If any players are seen without the metal face cage attached to their helmets, they will not be permitted to play. 

If you need a batting helmet with a cage to borrow for the season, please notify your manager at the start of the season and one will be assigned to you.

Tommy Tanski Memorial Scholarships

Tommy Tanski
Tommy Tanski Memorial Scholarships


Each year Simsbury Little League offers four $1500 scholarships to current High School seniors.  These scholarships are offered to seniors who participated in either the baseball or softball Little League program here in Simsbury.  The scholarships are given in memory of Tommy Tanski, who was a Simsbury High School junior, and a former Little League player, but passed away in a car accident in 2011.  

Tommy Tanski played Little League from 1999-2005 and during that time played for two district All Star Teams. He also played for the Strikers soccer team and played soccer in High School.  Tommy was a tremendous teammate and understood that his contribution was more about the team than any one individual.  

For many, the time playing Simsbury Little League baseball or softball is something to be cherished for years to come.  It is when friendships are formed, character is built and memories are made. During the registration process, please consider donating towards this scholarship fund and helping SLL continue to provide them in memory of Tommy Tanski.

To make a direct donation to this fund, please click HERE.

Thank-you!
SLL Board of Directors
