Q: When are games and practices?

A: Meriden Little League has 6 divisions and each division plays a minimum number of games a week. Below 

     is an example of what you can expect (practices are at the discretion of the manager / coach):

 

               T-ball = 2 games a week and a practice

               Farm C (coach pitch) = 2 games a week and a practice

               Farm B (kid / coach pitch) = 2 games a week and a practice

               Minors A (kid pitch) = 2-3 games a week and a practice

               Majors = 3 games a week and a practice

               Juniors / Seniors = games TBD and a practice

 

Q: What does my registration cover?

A: Your registration costs cover a team uniform and hat, all necessary baseball equipment (i.e. helmets, balls,        

      bats, etc.), umpire fees and other Little League required fees (i.e. Charter costs, insurance, etc.). Meriden Little league is a non-profit                    organization.

 

Q: What do I need to buy my player?

A: Parents are responsible for all items not provided by the league. Typically, this is just pants, cleats, glove and    

     personal safety equipment.

 

Q: What color pants?

A: Meriden Little League teams all have white pants

 

Q: What kind of bat do I need?

A: Any bat purchased and / or used MUST have the USA logo on it. Any been on a field that does not have a USA logo on it, will be removed.          Please see list of approved bats under the "Officials Page". Senior Division bats may also be BBCOR approved and shall not be more than 3        ounces less the length (example: 33 inch bat cannot be less than 30 ounces). This is known as "drop 3" or -3. 

 

Q: What happens if my player misses a game and / or practice?

A: There is no penalty for missing games and / or practices. Little League is intended to be both instructional

     and fun; however, both require the player to attend.

 

Q: When will I hear from the coach?

A: All players will be assigned to a team, following the draft, which will be held Saturday, March 14, 2020.

     Parents / players can expect to hear from the team’s Manager a few days following the draft.

 

Q: Where are the fields located?

A: Meriden Little League has two complexes: Ed Walsh complex and Jack Barry complex. Ed Walsh is located

     on Overlook Road (behind Thomas Hooker School) and Jack Barry is located on 210 Britannia Street. Jack

     Barry has (3) fields: Malerba, Carter and Hampp and Ed Walsh has (5) fields: FJ Kogut, FW Kogut,

     Carabetta, Avery and Carey.

 

Q: How do we know which Division is appropriate for my player?

A: MLL Player Agent is responsible for evaluating the players. Typically, 4 & 5 year olds will be placed on T-ball; 2nd year 5 year olds and 6           year olds in Farm C; 7 & 8 year olds in Farm B; 9 & 10 year olds in Minors A and 11 & 12 year olds in Majors. This is not an exact science,         as Minors A and Majors require a draft, which may result in younger players moving up sooner.
