New and Improved Tournament Eligibility Application

A new and greatly improved web-app for creating tournament eligibility rosters and maps is now available by clicking here. This app will produce the roster and boundary map required for tournament certification. It is highly recommended that you use this app to create your tournament map.

When entering player addresses please enter the full address, i.e. street address, city and state.

Note that for security purposes the rosters and addresses are saved only on your computer; they are not available to the local league, district or to Little League. At the current time only one team can be saved – to enter a second team under the same account requires the first team to be deleted.

After entering all players DO NOT use your browser’s print button to print; instead use the print button in the application to print your map.

Dangling Throat Guards – Here’s Why…

Tampa Bay catcher Dioner Navarro was struck in the throat by a pitch in the sixth inning during a game with the Florida Marlins Friday night.

The pitch from Brian Stokes bounced short of the plate and struck Navarro underneath his mask. Trainers, and later paramedics, went to Mr. Navarro’s aid. They eventually strapped him to a backboard and transported him to a hospital.

Please notice that Mr. Navarro was not using a throat guard!

A video of the incident is available here
