Dear GPPLL Parents and Players,

 

2015 GPPLL Second Season registration is now open. Please go to www.gppll.com and click on Registration. You can log in using the same information you used for your regular season registration and simply update information such as shirts sizes and medical information updates.

Forgot password? Just go to registrations and reset your password.

 
Features of Second Season:
  • Offered following the GPPLL Regular Season for a fee of $65.
  • Provides a more relaxed style of baseball while giving players an opportunity to develop skills and enjoy the game throughout the summer months.
  • Typically starts in July and goes through mid August ¡V about 5-6 weeks.
  • Practices are typically held once a week with games typically scheduled twice per week.
  • Roster sizes are expanded to accommodate family vacations.
  • Tournament team players are welcome, but must register in advance.
  • Players are placed on teams by Managers with the goal to balance skills and experience between teams.

 

Registration is open to anyone of age in the community who wants to play more baseball. We’d like to have everyone who would like to participate to be registered by June 30 so we can have a draft, choose teams, get uniforms, and have games start in mid July!

 

The number of teams is dictated by the number of registered players. Games are played against other GPPLL Second Season teams and possibly teams from the Grosse Pointe Farms-City Little League. The registration fee covers the costs of uniform shirts and hats.

 

We’re planning to have three divisions: Majors (ages 9-12 open only to 9¡¦s who played AAA this current regular season), using AAA/Majors rules, Minors (ages 7-9), kid pitch, and AA Rules, and Sandlot (ages 6-7) pickup games on Monday nights on the A Ball field. There is no fee or need to register for Sandlot ball due to the "show up and play¡¨ nature of the division.

 

Currently we’re looking for players and Managers for all divisions for the season. Please email me at aharr@gppll.com if you’re interested in managing a team this year. You must have a

GPPLL approved Volunteer form and signed Code of Conduct Letter on file with GPPLL to manage or coach a team.

 

Team Names: In the past we’ve gone with a theme of Minor League team names, Armed Forces, Negro Leagues, NHL, Big Ten and PAC 10 teams. We’ve done something different each year.  For the future we’ve thought about defunct teams like the Expos, Pilots, Senators and Browns; NFL, and NBA Teams, AAA teams, Negro League teams, and the like. Please email me at aharr@gppll.com for further suggestions and any questions.

 

This year we are going to go with car names, like Coupe de Villes, Imperials, and Continentals!  I have to see what cool logos are out there and match up colors, as well.

 

Go Park!

2015 Michigan District Six Umpire Clinics
GPP Umpire Clinics
All,

Break out your parkas as we will be having our Annual Little League District Wide Field Mechanic Clinics to discuss the mechanics of umpiring Little League Baseball and Softball (1 and 2 -person crews) on the following dates and at the following locations.

·         Thursday, April 16, 2015, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Shelby Township Ford Field Park Field #2, 7460 23 Mile Road, Shelby Township, MI 48317. For a map to the field open this link https://plus.google.com/116503526246191849930/about?gl=us&hl=en#116503526246191849930/about?gl=us&hl=en

·         Sunday, April 19, 2014 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at Kerby Diamond #3 (the field adjacent to the in-line skating rink), along the north side Kerby between Mack and Chalfonte, Grosse Pointe Farms, MI 48236. For a map to the field open this link https://plus.google.com/103128292109394243967/about?gl=us&hl=en#103128292109394243967/about?gl=us&hl=en

This clinic is for all umpires, league board members and/or managers within Michigan District Six.

I will be sending reminder emails as we get closer to the dates and umpires only need to attend one of these clinics, not both. Please note that the field mechanics clinic are free to all attendees.

Based on the feedback from the leagues we provide umpiring services to and thanks to Stray Corrado stepping up and taking a more active role in working with me as the District UIC, this year we are updating our district umpire training program to include a three part series for newer/younger umpires (3 years or less of experience).

The contents that are planned to be covered during these sessions, as they relate to Little League Baseball and Softball, are;
·         Field Positions
·         Set Positions
·         Working the Plate
·         Slot Position
·         Strike Zone Philosophies
·         Check List and Topics to Discuss at pre-game meeting
·         Umpire Communication during a game
·         Call Diagrams
·         Umpire to Umpire Signals
·         Key Communication Terminology
·         Principles of Umpiring
·         Understanding of Common Rules
·         Myths of Baseball/Softball
·         Handling Conflicts
·         Guidelines to avoid trouble
·         Case Studies

These training sessions will be held on  March 25th from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at 58 South Wilson (Between Cass & Church Street), Mount Clemens, MI 48043.

IF YOU HAVE 3 YEARS OR LESS OF EXPERIENCE: Please contact me by January 20th to let me know if you be attending these sessions (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IF YOU WANT TO MOVE UP TO HIGHER LEVELS) so we can plan accordingly for handouts, number of trainers, etc. Also, please pass this information along to any of your friends/relatives that may be interested in umpiring this year.

IF YOU MORE THAN 3 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE: DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT, COME TO ANY OF THESE SESSIONS!!! I will still be scheduling our usual district wide rule and field mechanic clinics for all umpires (I will send out separate emails for these clinics once they have been scheduled), but these sessions are specifically being prepared for newer umpires and getting them started or putting them back on the right track.

Lastly, please let me know if you plan to return this year at your earliest convenience.

Thanks,

Rob Rochon
Michigan District Six and MDSUA UIC
