Missing baseball already? You’re in luck! 2019 Fall Ball online registration is NOW OPEN for Pocket Little League sluggers of all ages!
PLL Fall Ball is a non-competitive, instructional season, which runs from September through the end of October. The instructional nature of PLL’s Fall Ball program allows players to gain experience at all positions, without the stress of high-level competition and seasonal standings. This valuable experience is hard to replicate in any other league setting. It’s also a great opportunity for kids to play games in higher divisions, as they prepare to move up next Spring. Fall Ball is more laid back than Spring Season, with a focus on developing and honing skills for those moving up, as well as for those returning to the same division.
Fall Ball will begin the first week of September. The registration fee ($50 for T-ball & Minor A divisions, or $65 for Minor AA and above) includes Fall Ball hat and shirt. Games and clinics will be held on Sundays, with optional practices held once a week per division (T-ball through Majors). Pick your child’s division based on the Little League age chart for the 2020 season. Registration for Fall Ball is online only and closes on September 4th, so follow the link and sign up today!

Once again this year, all Snack Shack shift sign ups will be available online via SignUpGenius.
The link to view available Snack Shack shifts and sign up is here.
Parents and family members may sign up below their own team’s open slot anytime. If another team still has an opening 24 hours prior to the game, that slot is available for anyone to take.
A few things to remember about SignUpGenius and the Snack Shack in general:
- Sign up with the volunteer’s name, your child’s division, team name, and last name.
- Students age 16-18 years old may work a shift on behalf of your family, however we cannot have more than two students under 18 work at the same time.
- Please arrive on time and ready to work your shift – reminders will be sent out two days prior to each shift you sign up for.
- Don’t forget to enter your time in and time out in the binder kept in the Snack Shack. This is our tracking log for all of your volunteer hours in the Snack Shack!
- Each shift is 2 1/2 hours, however if you are “closing” please stay until the last game ends to allow players to purchase their treats from the shack.
- Sign up for as many shifts as you want, there is no limit!
Questions about the Snack Shack, SignUpGenius, or any other volunteer opportunities? Please contact your Team Parent for assistance.
