REGISTRATION FOR THE 2019 LITTLE LEAGUE SEASON IS NOW OPEN!
'Tis the season...to register for the 2019 season of La Grange Little League baseball and softball! Our village may look and feel like the north pole right now, but soon enough our long winter's nap will be over, we'll start seeing our neighbors again, and kids will be playing the national pastime with friends on fields all over town.
To sign up, click HERE by January 15, 2019. As in previous years, all families will be charged a $100 Volunteer Fee that will be refunded once you have completed your volunteer obligation for the year. And if you or your company might be interested in serving as a sponsor, you'll have the chance to indicate that when you register (for more information, refer to the linked sponsorship form).
It promises to be another fun-filled season on the diamonds, so don't miss out!
If your player is registered for one of our draft leagues (Baseball C League, B League or A League, or Softball Juniors, Majors, or Minors), we're offering a "Warm up Session" FREE OF CHARGE on January 19th between the hours of 4:00 - 6:30 at Diamond Edge Academy. Please feel free to join this session at any point during those hours. Players will have the opportunity to use one of the cages for some swings, pitch in one of the tunnels, and field some grounders to get ready for Player Evaluation Day the following weekend.
2. Player Evaluation Day
Below are details for our Player Evaluation Day on Sunday, January 27th at LT South. As well, volunteers are still needed for this day! Please register HERE.
Player Evaluation Day
Who: Players in Baseball A, B and C Leagues; Softball Juniors, Majors and Minors
When: Sunday, January 27th (Times below!)
Where: LT South Field House
Players who have signed up for a draft league are required to attend our Player Evaluation Day on January 27th at the LT South Field House. After the Player Evaluation Day, coaches at these levels will draft players to their teams. It is very important that all players in draft leagues attend this event so that coaches can select teams based on skill levels and to allow for balanced teams!
Player Evaluation Day will be "Combine Style" and include three separate stations: Fielding and throwing, pitching, and hitting off a tee. These stations will run concurrently, and players will switch from station to station every 20 minutes. Coaches/Managers are encouraged to walk freely around to each station at their discretion to make their assessments. Players should wear gym shoes, and bring their gloves, bats, and protective cups are always a smart idea!
***PLEASE arrive 20-30 minute prior to your player's time slot to register, get your player's number, and warm up.
- C League: 8:30 - 9:30.

** NEW OPPORTUNITY ** LGLL Softball Pitching Clinic
To help prepare for the season, La Grange Little League is offering softball pitching clinics on six Monday nights at the Seventh Avenue School gym starting in mid-January. Leading the clinics will be Margaret Strojny, who was an All-Area pitcher at Riverside-Brookfield during her high school career. Margaret was highly recruited in high school, and went on to the University of Alabama. We are looking forward to having her share her pitching knowledge with the girls!
The clinics will take place on 1/14, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11, 2/25, and 3/4. Players in 1st through 3rd grades will practice from 6:00 to 6:45 p.m, and 4th through 8th graders will practice from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. To help things run efficiently, we are looking for as many parents as possible to join us at the clinics to serve as catchers for their daughters. It should be a fun learning experience for everyone!
The total cost for 6 sessions is $40. Registration can be completed on the LGLL website. To register, click here.

Waiola Park Safety Issues/Plan
WAIOLA PARK SAFETY
Please remember the following important safety points when attending a game at Waiola Park this season:
1. Only park on the side of the street that is next to Waiola Park. (West side of Waiola and east side of Stone Avenue) - DO NOT PARK in front of the residents' homes on their side of the street and remind others in LGLL if they forget;
2. If all the parking along Waiola Park is taken, park along 48th Street or on the 600 South blocks of Stone and Waiola or any other block you wish; we encourage you not to park north of 47th Street - park south and enjoy the walk!
3. Drive carefully, slowly and with your full attention on the road when driving by Waiola Park;
4. DO NOT use the driveways of residents on Waiola and Stone near Waiola Park to turn around in - be courteous to them and drive a little farther instead of using their driveways;
5. Use common sense for the safety of your children at Waiola Park - a particular concern is the safety of children crossing the street to the ice cream truck.
Be a good Neighbor to those who live near Waiola Park.

p.s. Please make sure to use available garbage cans and keep the Park clean of any litter.
