13-16 YEAR OLD SENIOR LEAGUE - FAQ'S

Q: Do you keep score and are there umpires?
A: Yes. Every manager maintains a scorebook. League standings are kept to determine a regular season winner and to determine playoff games. There is a homeplate and field umpire.

Q: What size field do they play on and where is the field?
A: All games are played on a regulation Senior League field with a grass infield and grass outfield. Bases are 90’ apart and the pitchers mound is 60’–6” from home plate.

Q: Can I have my child play on a team with their friends?
A: Not unless they are drafted on to that team. In this age group, players are assigned to a team through a draft process.

Q: Can I manage or coach a team?
A: Yes, if positions are available. Prospective managers must complete an application. If you would to serve a coach please note that on your child’s spring registration form. All managers and coaches must be approved by the Green Run Little League Board of Directors.

Q: How much will my child get to play?
A: To be fair to all players, our rules require that each child play in at least half of each game and start at least half of the games.

Q: What are the volunteer requirements?
A: GRLL is an all-volunteer organization so there are many ways to volunteer. Help is always needed with registration, team parenting, assisting with picture and opening day activities, helping with post-season tournaments, and working in the concession stand to name just a few of the many ways to help support GRLL.

Q: My son already plays school ball. Why should he play at GRLL?
A: Quite simply, the more they play, the better they will get, and the more fun they will have on the softball field. At Green Run, we start a month earlier than school ball, giving the boys more practice time. GRLL also affords the opportunity to try different positions, play with their friends and make new friends. Finally, GRLL schedules attempt to accommodate other activities the boys may be involved in, and of course, school work

Q: My son might make his middle/high school team. If he does can he still play at GRLL? What if he makes the middle school team and I don’t want him to play on two teams. Can I get a refund from GRLL?
A: Yes, he can still play at GRLL. We give refunds up until the first game is played. Once the season starts, we don’t give refunds.

Q: My son is a pitcher/catcher on his middle/high school team. I don’t want him pitching at school and then pitching at GRLL and possibly injuring his arm. How can I be assured that he won’t be overused and worn out?
A: Talk with the managers of BOTH teams and make sure they are aware of this situation. Express your concern and make sure, regardless of the situation in any game, that neither team overuses your son as either a pitcher or catcher.
