Sabino Canyon Little League

A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT


Dear Sabino Canyon Little League Family,

My name is Greg Geile and I am the newly elected president of SCLL. Many of you know me from the hours I spend at Udall, rumors are not true, I do not sleep there, those that I have not met I look forward to getting to know during the 2019 Spring Season.

I am joined by some amazing people on the SCLL board, all of whom are committed to a common goal of returning your Sabino Canyon Little League to its former glory. By glory we are not referring to wins and losses as that is not the focus of community baseball. Glory for SCLL is friendships, player development, neighbors, pride, community, sharing a common love of the game and family. SCLL will be glorious!

As well as being the new president of SCLL, I am also the founder of Rollin Baseball Club. Rollin too, is based out of Udall with competitive travel teams ranging from 10u to 14u. To directly support SCLL, Rollin club teams shut down entirely to allow our players to participate in Little League. Being involved in Little League and Travel Ball has given me a unique perspective to see how both forms of organization foster child development and the joy of America's favorite past time - Baseball!

A few bullet points are listed below to help illustrate the new SCLL programs.

Preseason player development and coaching clinics.

SCLL will host a series of preseason clinics in cooperation with Tanque Verde High School Baseball and Rollin Baseball. The clinics will be open to all prospective SCLL players and prospective coaches. Coaches and players alike will participate in fundamental drills, sample practice planning, pitching mechanics, etc. all of which will improve the experience for both the player and the coaches.

Smaller team size.
We will be heavily recruiting new coaches and we ask each one of you to please consider helping with a team. The reason for the push is team size. Take T-ball for example, traditionally little leagues have put 12-14 players on these teams. The love of baseball is learned on the field, not on the bench. After digging into the little league charter, we have learned that our T-ball teams can be reduced to 7 players which means more play time. This is the direction your new SCLL board is taking. We will be reviewing this for every division and are committed to reducing team size and dramatically increasing play time.

Look sharp, play sharp.
We are revamping our entire uniform program. We will now feature fitted SCLL team hats, practice jerseys and game jerseys. Please drop in on the Sabino Canyon Little League Facebook page for a sneak peek.

Umpires and game officials.
We have recruited a new Umpire in Chief to oversee our games. Jose Duran is known state wide for his officiating of games that range form Little League to MLB spring training. We are partnering with Tanque Verde HS, Sahuaro HS and Sabino HS baseball and softball programs to provide umpires for SCLL. The plan is to have those that play the game calling the game. Expert training under Jose will have a dramatic impact of the game experience for our players and coaches.

Part of our plan to rebrand applies to our facilities. You will see improved lighting, equipment, signage and overall SCLL Pride. This will also include some amazing sponsorship opportunities for families and local businesses. We will be communicating those opportunities separately.

Live Feed for 'The Game of the Week'.
SCLL will be broadcasting select games live via our FB page that will allow families members who might be shoveling snow to see their loved ones playing and coaching some ball from afar.

New website and registration program.
We have partnered with Dicks Sporting Goods to develop a new website set to launch December 10th. At that time, early registration will open and we encourage you jump on and register early.

I would like to share a clip from an article that was recently read at our SCLL board meeting, we believe it illustrates perfectly that there is a place for Little League and Travel Ball and if desired both should have a season in your families lives.

“Travel ball has some good qualities, if parents and kids get involved with the right team and play the right way. My son loves playing baseball, and his travel team gives him more time on the field. But, walking through our town’s baseball and softball complex, that message I see time and time again from Little League really hit me – it’s more than the play that happens on the field. Little League is about community. It’s about neighbors socializing with neighbors. It’s about kids playing with their friends. It’s comfortable, and for me, my son, and my wife, Little League feels like family.”

Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings, the SCLL Board is committed to serving our community. With your help, we can get there and create the bonds and memories that will last a lifetime. This is your SCLL!

Majors Ages: 9-12
Intermediate 50/70 Ages: 13

Tee-Ball

Tee-Ball Baseball is for boys and girls 4-5 years old (with a local option for 6-year-olds) who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. In Tee-Ball, players hit a ball off a batting tee. Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching. The primary goals of Tee-Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork. Rosters may be composed of between 7 and 10 players, but most leagues have rosters in the 12-15 range. No live pitching is permitted in this division. Generally, the diamond used is a 60-foot diamond, but the league has the option to use a 50-foot diamond.

Practices are generally no longer than 1hr, twice a week until games start. Once games begin practice is usually once a week. Games will be twice a week with 1hr time limits, and will begin Mid-March and complete in early May

Minors (Coach Pitch, AA & AAA)

Minor League Baseball programs for boys and girls may be operated within each division for younger players with less experience. The minor league may be players ages 6-12. Divisions may be established within the Minor League for "coach pitch" or "player pitch." By local option, a player who is league age 6 for the current season and has played a year in Tee Ball may be "moved up" to a coach pitch division. A local league might have its 7-year-olds in the Minor League Coach Pitch Division, while its 8-10-year-olds are in the Minor League Player Pitch Division. However, by local option, some of the 7-year-olds could "play up." This is entirely the choice of the local league board of directors. Rosters may be composed of between 10 and 12 players, but most leagues have rosters in the 12-15 range. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet. AAA division will require assessments to play at that level, any player interested in this level must attend a required assessment/try out prior to playing in AAA division.

Coach Pitch will generally practice for 1hr, twice a week until games begin. Once games begin practice is usually once a week. Games will be twice a week with 1hr time limits, and will begin Mid-March and complete in early May.

AA Player Pitch teams will generally practice for 1hr to 1hr 30min, twice a week until games begin. Once games begin practice is usually once a week. Games will be twice a week with 1hr 30min possibly 1hr 45min - local league and inter-league rules would apply, and will begin Mid-March and complete Mid-May.

AAA Player Pitch teams will generally practice for 1hr to 1hr 30min, twice a week until games begin. Once games begin practice is usually once a week. Games will be twice a week with 1hr 45min possibly 2hrs - local league and inter-league rules would apply, and will begin Mid-March and complete Mid-May.

Little League Baseball (Majors) 

The Little League Baseball Division (also known as the Major Division) is for boys and girls ages 9 -12. A local league may choose to limit its Major Division to 9-, 10-, 11- and 12-year-olds, or 11-12-year-olds. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet.

Majors teams will generally practice for 1hr 30min to 2hrs, twice or more a week until games begin. Once games begin practice is usually once a week. Games will be twice a week with 1hr 45min possibly 2hrs - local league and inter-league rules would apply, and will begin Mid-March and complete Mid-May.

Intermediate 50/70

The Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division was introduced in January, 2010, as a pilot program for 12- and 13-year-olds which utilizes a 50-foot pitching distance and 70-foot base paths.  

Practices for 50/70 will start a little later, Mid-March. This division plays all across Tucson and is dependent on other leagues also forming teams to compete. Most leagues only form one team, or combines with another close league to form one team due to number of players. Games are generally 1hr 45min to 2hr long
