SPRING 2021 JUNIORS DIVISION FAQs 

Who can play at MPLL? 
You must either live or go to school within our league boundaries. We have a very detailed map on the our website under MPLL Maps. Please check this map and confirm that you either live or go to school within the boundary before proceeding any further. 

What age groups play kid pitch during the spring season? 
Kids born between 9/1/2006 and 8/31/2008 MUST try out for the JUNIORS division. All league age 13 and 14 year olds will make a JUNIORS team. 

How do I get my kid registered? 
Boys and girls alike may register for JUNIORS. All players (new and returning) must register online and upload all residency documents required (see homepage for details — Little League mandates very specific requirements). 

PLEASE CONFIRM THAT YOU LIVE OR GO TO SCHOOL WITHIN OUR BOUNDARY BEFORE REGISTRATION. 

I’d like to coach or assist in coaching a JUNIORS team. How do I do this? 
We are very fortunate to have some very qualified candidates to manage our MPLL Juniors teams, however, if you are interested in managing/coaching, please fill out our manager interest form online. 

Do players try out for Juniors? Is there a draft? 
Yes, all players in kid pitch baseball tryout. The purpose of tryouts and the subsequent draft is to allow for as much competitive balance as possible between teams. Each player that tries out will make a team. 

JUNIORS tryouts will be as follows: 
Juniors Baseball (13-15 yr old) - 2/18 at 6:30pm on Field 10 at the Upper Complex.

Kids interested in pitching and/or playing catcher in the JUNIORS division will have the opportunity to deliver pitches and/or receive balls behind the plate with throws to 2B. Any kid interested in trying out for catcher needs to bring his or her own catcher’s gear, and males will need to wear a cup. 

All players will be drafted to a team after the tryout sessions, and will be notified of their spring team by the 14th. Practices will begin Monday, February 15th.  

How many games will we play each week? 
Typically, teams play two games each week, although there are occasionally weeks where a team may play only once due to scheduling. Games will likely be played on Monday and Thursday evenings.  This won’t be finalized until we know exactly how many players and teams we have for the spring. Weeknight games start no earlier than 730pm.  

The spring season will feature a regular season as well as a post-season tournament. Additionally, the top teams during the spring season will have the opportunity to advance to the City Tournament in early June. 

How often will our team practice? 
Teams will be allotted assigned practices at MPLL in the weeks prior to the start of the season. Once the season starts, practices are at the discretion of the manager/head coach. Most teams will have a field practice, and batting practice during each week, and potentially a Saturday field practice every other week. MPLL does not require any minimum practice schedule for our teams. If teams elect to practice at MPLL during the season, or at some of the city parks or local indoor or outdoor baseball facilities, those locations have a fee associated that can be covered by parents to share the responsibility of paying for these practice locations, or acquiring sponsors to cover those fees. 

When does the season start, and when does it end? 
JUNIORS practices will begin the week following the tryouts/draft (week of 2/15), and 
inter-league games will begin the week of March1st.  The regular season typically concludes by Memorial Day weekend. 

Where will we play our games? 
The JUNIORS division teams inter-league with other nearby Little Leagues. When scheduling, League Leadership works hard to schedule as many games as possible for each team at their local facility, however, JUNIORS division teams should expect to play road games at Alamo Heights LL, Bulverde LL, Capitol Park LL, Greater NE LL, and potentially Windcrest LL.  

I have two (or more) children playing. Can they play on the same team? 
Yes, please make this designation on your online registration in the special requests or comments section. 

What positions will my child play? Will they rotate through various positions? 
Your child’s positions will be determined by their ability, skill set, and effort. Your child’s manager and coaches will place each child in positions that they are most likely to be successful, and to develop their skills. 

What gear does my child need? 
MPLL will provide each player with a team jersey and hat. Parents will be responsible for baseball pants, belt, and socks (your child’s coach will discuss colors with you once you are on a team) as well as cleats, a baseball glove, a bat, and a batting helmet. Additionally, if your child plays catcher, they will need a cup and catcher’s gear. (Check with your coach before buying catcher’s gear, though.)  

Are there any other costs aside from the registration fees? 
There may be additional costs to secure a practice location, batting cages, and to get 
names/numbers on caps/jerseys.  You will receive this information directly from your coach once your child is drafted to a team. If these (or registration costs) fees create an issue, please reach out to league leadership, or your child’s coach to discuss scholarship opportunities.
