Grand Island Viking Classic Tournaments 

9U July 11 - July 15

With more than 70 teams coming from Western and Central NY,  Lower Ontario, and Maryland funds raised for the league will go toward more capital improvements.   Three fields have been completed so far with expanded dugouts and permanent roofs.   We have 5 more fields remaining.


Many local businesses will be benefiting as well as teams stay at Island hotels and campsites,  eat at Island restaurants, and tour the area.


And thanks to Craig Reynolds, our Umpire Chief, we also have some of the best Little League umpires coming from Canada, CNY,  PA,  Aruba , and Curacao to call the games!   This is a real international event!


We invite all of you to check out the action, have a taco-in-a-bag and a pop at our awesome snack stand,  take a picture or two for the scrapbook, and say hello.


We hope to see you at Veterans Park!

Welcome to the Grand Island Little League!

Please read below for important info before you arrive at our park.

1.  Please observe the parking rules at VETS Park and help make the park safer and more enjoyable for all.  When driving through, please keep it under 10 MPH. We have kids crossing the lots and service road all day long. Please be respectful of others as you arrive.

2. There is no smoking or consumption of alcohol while on the grounds.

3. Any abuse of an umpire, whether by a player, coach or fan will be dealt with swiftly and that person will be ejected from the park.

4. Our fields are enclosed. Coaches and players must be inside the dugout during play. Only base coaches are allowed and must be in the coaches box. No on deck batters or players swinging bats outside the fields !  This includes all house, travel and tournament games being played at GILL.

5. Please be aware of the areas where maintenance is replacing the grass. Make sure to avoid those areas and do not allow your children to play there.  Do not climb the fences, or trees. Not only is this a safety issue, we must keep the park well maintained.

6. CLEAN UP THE TRASH!: Please discuss with your teams the importance of cleaning the dugout during and after games. Coaches will be notified if their teams leave a mess. 

7. PLEASE BE COURTEOUS WHEN USING THE BATHROOMS AND THROW AWAY ALL PAPER TOWELS.  DO NOT LEAVE SOAP IN SINKS AND BE SURE TO FLUSH THE TOILETS.  GILL IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAINTENANCE AND DOES NOT WANT TO CLEAN UP AFTER YOU!

iMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: USA BAT DE-CERTIFICATION PER LITTLE LEAGUE HEADQUARTERS

Dear Little League Parents and Volunteers,

On Thursday, May 3, USA Baseball informed youth organizations, including Little League, that effective immediately, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8" (or the "Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8" at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30-inch drop 10 variation of the Easton Ghost X only. Pursuant to Rule 1.10, this is now an illegal bat. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play.

All parents, coaches, and umpires must check their bats and remove these bats from play if they are in possession of these bats.

Any questions regarding returns, refunds, or warranty claims for the Easton Ghost X 30/20 should be directed to Easton at .

Please visit USABat.com/Decertified-Bats for more information.

 

 

 

 

First time players must provide a copy of a BIRTH CERTIFICATE.  Please mail to: 

GILL  PO Box 714 ,  GI, NY 14072  att: Registrar

 

Once date of birth is verified the copy will be destroyed.

GILL HOUSE RULE: NO BATTER WALK UP, GAME WARM UP OR VICTORY MUSIC PLAYED AT THE FIELDS - it's very distracting to the other games and does not promote good sportsmanship
 
 

Congratulations to Grand Island Little League Umpire In Chief Craig Reynolds!! 

On being selected to work the 2018 Eastern Regional Little League Softball Tournament in Bristol Connecticut. The tournament will be held from July 20th to July 26th and the eventual winner will be heading to the 2018 Little League World Series
