about Little League Rules: The rules of Little League vary in some
few but significant ways from the baseball you see on TV. Please
learn the rules to better understand the game.
Little League is an organization of volunteers. Brookside Little League has NO paid positions. Each person involved gives of their time and effort to make a positive experience for all the players of the league.
The Board members spend much time year round to administer and organize the league.
Coaching staffs spend a huge amount of time in both the pre season and season for practices and games. They are giving of their experience and time, please respect that sacrifice.
Little League umpires again are volunteers. Many of them are also coaches or hold other positions in the league. There are never enough volunteers to do this important function. Respect their effort to learn the game and the rules of the game.
VOLUNTEER TO HELP
Volunteering to help doesn't mean you're giving up your life. There are many small and/or one-time jobs that need to be done both during the season and during the off-season. Give what time you can and that means one less job that needs to be done by others. Contact any Board member or your team's coaches to sign-up.
