Calling all UMPIRES! Mandatory Umpire Meeting on Jan 21st

Calling all UMPIRES!  Umpiring little league games is a challenging and very rewarding experience.  It's also a paid position, paid by the game!  

If you are interested in being a FALL Umpire, please complete the Umpire Registration Form on fallbb.com.  For more details, see our Umpires Page

We have several Umpire training sessions coming up, the first of which being our mandatory Umpire meeting on Sunday, January 21st at 6:00pm at Hampton Inn.  We need all those considering to be FALL Umpires to attend this meeting.  

Following that, we will have a few more Umpire clinics in February, the exact time and location for those sessions is being confirmed.   

Please consider being an umpire, especially if you are a manager or coach in FALL.  Often times managers and coaches from the upper level divisions umpire the lower divisions.  This helps FALL immensely, and also provides valuable perspective to the manager or coach umpiring.  

Please email chiefumpire@fallbb.com with any questions.

TryOuts Information

Tryout Update:  The Spring Season Tryout #2 is scheduled for this Saturday, Sat, Jan 13th at Lembi Field.  Due to the great turn out for Tryout #1 (Jan 7), the schedule for the day has been adjusted.  For more details on tryouts and time schedules, see our Tryouts By League Age page under Divisions.  Sun, Jan 21 remains as a backup date in case of a rain-out.

Please monitor our website as dates are subject to change for tryouts based on weather and field availability. 

NOTE:  Due to the new Little League bat regulations, FALL will be providing approved bats at tryouts this year:

With the new USA Baseball Bat Standard now in effect starting January 1, 2018, the only bats allowed for use at any Little League-related activities including Tryouts, Practices and Games, are those that adhere to the USABat standard and all bats must be marked with the USABat label in order to be used in Little League Baseball®.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  See our Bat Rules for 2018 page for more details.

FALL will be providing approved bats at Tryouts this year to ensure that players in attendance do not need to worry about having a new USA bat by our Tryout dates.  Please DO NOT BRING YOUR OWN BAT as FALL volunteers will not be able to check individual bats to ensure they meet the new standard either before or during Tryouts. However, once FALL practices begin, ALL players are responsible for providing their own approved bats that meet the new USA Baseball Bat Standard.

2018 Spring Managers Needed!

Calling All Managers!

FALL is in need of managers, coaches, and assistant coaches for the Spring 2018 season. If you have volunteered in the past, we hope you will return to the dugout as a manager or coach again this spring. If you have not volunteered and are interested in volunteering as a manager, coach, or assistant coach, we highly encourage you to do so!  Our program is run on the dedication and spirit of our volunteers and we are only successful when we have a strong network of parents and volunteers assisting. 

 

The deadline for manager applications for AA, AAA, Majors, and Juniors divisions is December 15th. The Division Reps will be interviewing managers after applications close and will be solidifying the managers for the spring season by mid-December. If you are interested in volunteering as a manager for these divisions, please complete an application.  

 

Managers are needed for Tee-Ball, Farm, and A divisions as well.  Please be sure to fill out an application if you are interested in volunteering as a manager in these divisions.
