How to Introduce Yourself to Little League


Look up the structure and divisions of Little League online at www.PlayLittleLeague.org for a brief description, and to gain a basic sense of what’s going on in the program. If you want to go deeper and brush up on the basic rules, check out the resources on www.LittleLeague.org.

Little League’s rules, regulations and guidelines are designed to create a safe, healthy, educational and fun experience for participants young and old.

Personalize the Game
Watch baseball and softball in your community, or on TV. Check out the team roster and have the children pick a player (perhaps the one who plays the same position they do) and follow them on the field. Throughout the game, ask the kids questions about their player. Another way to personalize it is to teach geography. Buy a map and hang it on the wall. With each game you watch, place a pin in the cities the teams are from. If your child is computer knowledgeable, have them go online and find a few facts about the cities.

Own the experience
When your child asks what games are on, pick games that you can attend or watch on TV, together. Choose a game that has a connection for you and your child. Examples are your favorite team or that of a grandparent, or sibling; or tie it into a location of the country that the child is studying in school. Picking teams to root for based on jersey color can also go a long way with children. You don’t have to over-think it or be the smartest person in the room; you just have to make it fun. Besides, it’s always more fun when you care about one of the teams.

Ask Older Kids More Questions
Older kids are more likely to see something and try to replicate it on the field. When the umpire makes a call, talk about it with your child. Do you both understand why the call was made? If not, talk together about what you think may have happened.
