Little League Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division:
The
online resource page for the Little League Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division has been to educate your leagues on the charting and development of this division. Local leagues and districts will have access to a PowerPoint presentation on the new program, a document describing "best practices," a field conversion PowerPoint presentation, and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ document) and a video presentation. Contact the Little League International League Development Department - Dan Velte, Director of League Development and Affiliation, dvelte@LittleLeague.org; or Sam Ranck, League Development Manager, sranck@LittleLeague.org for assistance.


Background Checks/Insurance Claims:
If requested to do so by the local league, all local league volunteers must provide their Social Security Number when completing their 2013 Little League volunteer application, which can be completed online. An individual's Social Security Number is required for all background checks conducted through LexisNexis. An individual's Social Security Number also is required for all 2013 insurance claims, according to federal law. Regardless of whether the claimant is a child or adult, his/her Social Security Number will be required for processing.


2013 ASAP Information:
The majority of the 2013 A Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) materials are currently available online at the Little League website.


Permissions to Use Little League Equipment and Facilities by Non-Little League Programs
: Little League International strongly recommends that local leagues NOT allow non-Little League programs to use league-owned/maintained playing equipment or facilities. If a league decides to permit such usage, it is highly recommended that the entity/group using Little League equipment and/or facilities add the local league to its insurance; and for the local Little League to establish a "hold harmless" agreement with the entity/group.


Reminder for Local League Coaches, Managers and Volunteers:
All adults, regardless of volunteer role with the local league or team, should refrain from participating as a player in any Little League Baseball or Little League Softball practice or game. Said adults are not covered by the local league's insurance in the event of injury.

Chartering: All 2013 charter applications have been mailed and enclosed in the new Chartering and Marketing Toolkit. If your leagues' packets were mailed to you, please, confirm their receipt by completing and submitting the signature form signed by all league presidents. The online option is now available here. Follow up with the leagues in your district, and offer any assistance necessary to fully and accurately complete the application forms. Please, contact Dan Velte (dvelte@LittleLeague.org; or 570-326-1921; ext. 2223) with any questions.
