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.

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)


 
 

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.


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

the youth Umpires Are Our Kids!

SLL - Alcohol & Smoking Policy

To:  SLL Community

We hope that everyone has been enjoying their time at the fields and cheering their teams on as we near the end of the season.  As we move into the final few weeks of games we wanted to remind everyone that both the Town of Simsbury and the Little League Organization prohibit both tobacco and alcohol at all game sites.   We respectfully ask that all spectators refrain from smoking and/or drinking alcohol at the fields.

Thanks for your cooperation.

The New Baseball Age Determination Date: What You Need To Know

The New Baseball Age Determination Date:  

What You Need To Know

FOR BASEBALL DIVISIONS ONLY

In April 2014, a new league age determination was approved by Little League Baseball®. To implement the new amendment, it was decided to include a three-year waiting period to execute the change, starting in 2018. Questions were raised about the impact the change would have on players that were currently league age 8 under the traditional system. The Little League International Board of Directors adjusted the April-approved implementation strategy in order to modify the impact on all of our minor and major division players. The adjustment also allows for an easier transition for players in the early years of Little League participation.

Effective immediately, any player born on or after January 1, 2006 who will turn the ages of 5-9 during the 2015 calendar year will be eligible to participate in Simsbury Little League and will use the new age determination date of December 31 for the remainder of their Little League Baseball career. Players will still be assigned to a division by the Player Agent based on their age and prior experience.

Consequently, players born prior to January 1, 2006 will continue to utilize the current age determination date of April 30 for the next three Little League Baseball seasons.

Thank you for your sponsorship of Simsbury Little League. As a sponsor you are continuing the great tradition that is Simsbury Little League. Simsbury Little League has been teaching Simsbury youth the joy of little league baseball for over 61 years. The league is dependent on registration fees and donations from local businesses to continue to maintain, develop and care for the Little League program and complex. Introduced in 2004, the banner-advertising program provides an opportunity for local businesses to show their support for Simsbury Little League. The money raised with the banner-advertising program goes to improvements made to the fields used by SLL.
 
A banner sponsorship includes the following:
 
  • A 2x8 foot hard backed banner sign, using sponsors logo where possible, will be hung on the outfield fences of Memorial Park.
 
  • A rotating web banner located at the top of the home page for SLL’s website (www.simsburylittleleague.com).  Banner will include a link to sponsors website when available. Our webpage is where most of the Little League families go for information regarding Simsbury Little League happenings. With over 500 families in our league we have quite a lot of website traffic recorded throughout the year!
 
The cost for the Banner Program is $500.

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
