9. Practices and Season Play
Posted by Eric Bickford on Jan 17 2007 at 04:00PM PST in MVLL Baseball 2019
Practice: The Manager of your youngster’s team will call practices during the days following final team assignments and prior to regular season play. Most managers will have a tentative practice schedule by the time players are notified. Every player should attend these practices, if school work permits. These practices are important. The Manager and Coaches need to begin working on fundamentals, help players with early conditioning and will explain the team rules and policies. It makes the Manager’s job much easier to go over the basics with the team as soon as possible. In addition, the players need to get to know each other to develop a sense of teamwork. After a few practices, the Manager will schedule practice games. Players should not wear their game uniforms for these practice games. Season Play: During the season, teams will usually play two games each week, including a Saturday game. In addition, managers will also schedule one or two weekly practices. Minimum Playing Time: Little League has a minimum playing time regulation that requires every player to play in each game. Exceptions to these regulations are allowed only when a player fails to appear for games, has unexcused missed practices or is being disciplined. For definitive rules at each Division, please contact your Team Manager. The minimum playing time rules do not imply equal game time for each player nor are they intended to remove the strategic choices of the manager. NOTE: Please be ON TIME when getting players to and from practices and games. Most managers and coaches also have their own families to attend to and do not have extra time to wait for parents to pick up their children.
