Volunteers Needed for One Time Tasks
The Mono County Little League Board is made of parents like you who have families, jobs, and hobbies that keep them busy. They are also working hard to make the children’s baseball experience an enjoyable one. There are many time consuming, ongoing jobs the board members must work on for months in preparation of and during the baseball season.
Please help out by signing up for a ONE TIME TASK below. You do not need to attend any board meetings, but you do need to complete a Volunteer Application. Contact Antonette Ciccarelli to sign up or for more information.
Post Season Coordinator 8-9-10 Year Olds: helps with organizing event, ordering uniforms, player rosters, organizing team photo, etc.
Post Season Coordinator 10-11-12 Year Olds: helps with ordering uniforms, player rosters, organizing team photo, etc.

Other Volunteer Jobs
Umpires - contact Neil McConnell
Coaches - contact Lance Georgeson
All contact information is in the "Board Members" section.
We need additional board members. We have unfilled positions (Treasurer, Uniform Coordinator, Player Agent, Equipment Coordinator, Volunteer Coordinator, etc.) and some of our board members did not return from last season. It is not a huge committment and you don't need to know anything about baseball... just be available to meet once a month December - June.
Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Dugout Parents, Helpers, etc.
If you help out in any way directly with the chidlren, you MUST complete a volunteer application form and submit it to coaches and/or board members. This includes working with the children during practices, helping as base coach during games, or getting the players organized in the dugout.
Coaches must attend a mandatory safety meeting on 3/28/18 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Mammoth Lakes Community Center. Contact Lance Georgeson with any questions.
Games are to be rescheduled ONLY due to bad weather, and only if both coaches agree. Field availability is really tight and practices will still be happening. Reschedules not only disrupt another team’s practice and/or families who already have plans, but they also impact umpires and the snack shack schedule.
For a reschedule to happen, the following steps must be taken. Please get the other coaches’ contact information from Lance Georgeson.
It is up to the coaches to reschedule the games; not the board.
1. Pick some dates for the new game.
2. Do not reschedule during BLACKOUT DATES: Memorial Weekend, (May 21 is MES Back to School Night – for younger players).
3. Check ALL 4 game schedules for field availability. You can also play games at Crowley and Whitmore (check high school baseball and softball schedules on the MHS website).T-ball teams may reschedule to play at the middle school or in the outfield during a farm or t-ball game (the ball never makes it that far). You’ll have to set up bases.
4. Email Michelle McMillian email@example.com the new date, time, and field, and which game was rescheduled so she can enter it into League One.
5. Michelle will email the coaches when the new game has been updated in League One. Emails/texts will go out to the teams, but since they are sent from League One, they often end up in spam folders. Coaches should contact their players to alert them to the canceled/rescheduled game.
6. One coach must email Lance Georgeson about the game change so he can inform the team who has practice scheduled during the new game time.
7. For minors and majors – Notify Mike Aguirre to cancel the umpire and schedule one for the new game time.
8. Notify the Women’s Club by texting or calling Marcia Burditt 760.914.1111 and Anna Allen 760.937.3328 of the game cancellation so they do not open the Snack Shack when there is no game.
Please email farm, minors and majors game scores to Michelle McMillian firstname.lastname@example.org so we can track standings. Forfeits are recorded as 6-0.
First place trophies for farm, minors, and majors divisions will be awarded based on the scores that have been submitted to Michelle. Failure to submit scores will affect your standings.
Minors and Majors teams are to keep track of pitch counts for all pitchers. After each game, compare and confirm the pitch counts with the other coach then send counts to all the coaches in your division.
– no practice on game days after the fields have been chalked.
– there are 3 fields shared with high school varsity and JV baseball and high school softball. Most practices and games end by 5:30 on weekdays so fields are available after that. Some teams have started earlier without problems.
Check the Mammoth Unified School District calendar if you want to see if there are high school games going on. http://www.mammothusd.org/calendars/District-Calendar/month
– softball uses this field. They practice M,W, F. The field should be available those days after 5:30 and then open the rest of the week. The team has home games May 2, May 16, and May 25 at 5:30 so the field is not available on those days.
Memorial weekend: Friday through Monday
This is the list of dates when games may not be scheduled for certain divisions or teams because of conflict with MAJOR school events.
June 6: LVHS Graduaton
June 10: MMS Graduation * there is a Farm game scheduled. Coaches please check with parents to see if anyone has a middle schooler graduating so we can change this game date
June 13: MHS Baccalaureate * there is a Minors game scheduled. Coaches please check with parents to see if anyone has a high schooler attending this so we can change this game date

Mono County Little League provides all bats, balls, batting helmets, and catcher equipment. We will provide gloves upon request. Baseball cleats are optional. Some players choose to use soccer cleats or tennis shoes. Some players like to purchase batting gloves and their own batting helmets.
Boys should wear an athletic supporter or compression shorts under their sweatpants and baseball pants. If your son is a catcher, it is mandatory he wear a protection cup.
Please dress warmly for practices and games, especially the younger players who seem more sensitive to the cold. They should wear long sleeve shirts or sweatshirts under their jerseys and may even want to wear knit gloves.
Please note that the rules regarding bats have changed. Only certain bats will be allowed this year, per Little League Rules. All bats must feature the USA Baseball mark (not USSA, USSSA, USASA), for more details click here https://www.littleleague.org/playing-rules/bat-rules/
