Amend our constitution to include Softball Vice President to be elected with Baseball Vice President and Treasurer.

Check HLL Bylaws to see if we changed that Board Members who are involved with a certain division can be the Representative over that division.

Fall Ball: (Practice Only Season) Started September 14, 2020

All managers received thermometer, hand sanitizer, and bleach cleaner.  This includes the one coach we have from Boulder City (AAA).  Boulder City is not allowing any baseball until schools open.  Boulder City will reimburse us for the field usage.

Temperatures taken before practice.  Sanitize hands before going on field.  Players do not need to wear masks on the field but coaches do.  Parents need to social distance.  Code Enforcement will issue fines if coaches are not following the guidelines.

TBall-3 teams

Rookies-3 teams

AA-3 teams

AAA-4 teams

Majors-1 team with about 16 players

Juniors-1 team with players from other leagues


Our numbers are going up.

Games

We may be able to have games soon.  Group sizes increased from 50 to 250 people.  

Tball- 2 games a week

Rookie and AA- 2 nights a week.  2 teams will have a double header. Double headers are 5 innings or 90 minutes drop dead.

AAA- 2 nights a week

Majors- Depends on how many kids sign up.

Juniors-Probably not playing because they don’t have anyone to play.

Ask for volunteers for umpires to save money.  Maybe each team supplies an umpire.  Majors we would find umpires. 

Players can wear the uniform they were given for Spring.  They wont match.  Find simple shirt for new sign ups.

We did have to pay for fields for Spring season.  City of Henderson would not adjust or dismiss the charges.

Looking for fundraisers for the Spring season in anticipation that we won’t have as many sponsors.

District has not given any support since the shut down.  They did not say anything about the money we paid for Spring season.

Have not received a full credit from Little League International.  Jason is emailing to find out what is going on.

Continue to have Board Meetings on Sunday @ 6PM.

  • Restart Committee: Jason Caldwell, Jeremy Young, Nora Olsen, Mindy Wagstaff, Crystal Keiley

  • We have already had some players request refund, or transfer amount to next season.
  • We know that 2 TBall, 1 Rookie, and 2 AA managers will not be returning.
  • What reopening will look like:

 

  • Uniforms
  • All players will keep the uniforms they were issued for spring. Even if we combine teams or distribute players from another team elsewhere they will wear their spring uniform. 
  • Teams
  • The teams will stay the same as they were drafted for spring. If a team does not have enough returning players that team will be disbanded and that teams returning players will be distributed among the other teams.
  • Players
  • The players that need to be reassigned will be done so via hat pick. The team with the fewest returning players will pick until they are even with all of the other teams and then we will pick in draft order until all players are distributed. Some teams may end up with more than 12 players. We anticipate that some players will miss games during the summer for family reasons and having more then 12 won’t be an issue.

  • No after game snacks will be allowed.
  • Extra help in the dugout will be ok to help with all of these extra precautions and to assist with social distancing.

    • $110 has already been paid per player this season.
    • Little League International has said they will apply our charter fee to next year.

HLL Board Meeting November 2019

 

  • Meeting called to order 5:40 PM
  • Those in attendance: Jason Caldwell, Mindy Wagstaff, Nora Olsen, Michelle Caldwell, Chris Petty, Crystal Keiley, Danny Sanders, Sarah Bonnett, Ronni Nelson, Courtney Young

 

  • Proxy Votes: 
  1. Ryan Nelson: Ronni Nelson
  2.  Geoff Sneed: Chris Petty
  3.  Jeremy Young: Courtney Young
  4.  Sean Cosgrove: Jason Caldwell

               

  • Approval Prior Meeting Minutes:  Change needs to be made to Geoff Sneed’s position on the board. 
  • Approval Treasurer’s Report- Mindy Wagstaff motion; Michelle Caldwell 2nd; all approve
  • Nomination of new Board Members
    • Jarvis Jordan- Softball Player Agent:  Responsible for overseeing tryouts and draft, working with coaches, player movement during the season, All Star info signed off, coordinate with Crystal for scheduling and other leagues.
    • Jason Caldwell motion, Nora Olsen 2nd; all approve

 

  • Found 2017 version of our Constitution- describes board positions, we changed Executive Board to 2-year term limits.  Consider have an evacuation plan.  Look over constitution and discuss changes at next meeting so we can get a copy to District.

 

  • Tball:  When pitching to players, coaches must have at least one foot inside the pitching circle.  4-year-old needs to have a parent volunteering for the team (coaching, or team mom).  6 Year old’s can be waivered up, but a spot in Rookies is not guaranteed, the player must be drafted to play in Rookies.

 

  • Rookie Division:  No new inning after 1hr 45 min.  Remove the drop dead.  Pitchers must pitch from the rubber.  Remove within 2 ft of the circle.  5 badged volunteers.

 

  • Minor Division:  Fix ages from 8-10 years old.  In AA, if there is a player at 3rd base they can advance if they are hit in or if a play is attempted to be made on them. Player on 3rd cannot advance on an overthrow.

 

  • Major Division:  Fix ages so that 8 years old cannot play in Majors.  Bat the entire line up with free substitutions.  That changes when tournament starts.  Discussion of playing a 50/70 league.  18 game Major schedule, 12 games regular bases, 6 games 50/70??  Could attract more club ball players.  It would add 2 more games to our regular schedule.  The All-Star team would not play 50/70, but they would play the regular Major Division Little League baseball rules.  This may be confusing to the kids switching back and forth between the different rules.  Maybe we could do a 50/70 league during Fall Ball.

 

  • Junior Division:  Our teams play according to the rules and by-laws of the other Little Leagues they play.

 

  • We are not going to continue with the snack shack at Morrell Park.  We will clean it out on November 25 @ 6:00.  We can do some type of concessions at Mission.  We can have someone there as long as they are licensed for the city of Henderson.  Discuss the idea of having our own trailer to serve concessions from.

 

  • District Poker Tournament April 25.  Looking for prizes and donations.  

 

  • All Star dates June 22-July 2.  Hosted by District 3.  State tournament July 10-23.  Regionals August 8-15.

 

  • Silverado West Little League board left and took all of their equipment with them.  Renamed Southern Highland Little League.  They are starting from scratch and looking for anything that we can donate to them.  We will see if we have any equipment that we can donate.

 

  • Fall Ball is done.  Henderson Giants took 1st place.  Boulder City team took 2nd place.  We need to divide up the ages for next year.  We can’t have 8-year old’s playing with 11-year old.  Hopefully we will have the numbers to have AA and AAA.  Our softball team played really well against teams who were much older than them.  They took 3rd place.

 

  • Opening Day cannot be done at Morrell.  We will have to use 2 different fields. Picture day will still be done on Opening Day.  Same vendor as last year.  He has changed some of the packages to accommodate our league better.

 

  • Boulder City is starting a Senior Little League.  We could put it out there to see if there is any interest for our league.  Ages 16-18.  Put it on the registration and don’t charge to see what the level of interest is.

 

  • Our poker tournament is February 22 at South Point Casino.  We can use last years flyer with some changes.

 

  • Offer spirit wear for our league.  Courtney Young can make the shirts.  She will put together a pricing sheet.  We feel we should limit it to one design and do it in different colors for the different teams.  Keep it simple for right now.

 

  • Try out dates:  January 25 (Saturday) Start at 9AM. Board members there by 8.  

 

  • Juniors and 6-7-year-old.  
  • 10:00 8-9-year-old.  1

    • Motion Mindy Wagstaff; 2nd Nora Olsen; all approve

 

  • Morrell Park
    • Health Inspection of snack shack.  There are some things that need to be fixed.
    • If we can play games at Morrell, then we will find someone to maintain and operate the snack shack.  The City of Henderson will fix the building and the items with the building that need to be fixed.  We need to clean it up.  If we do not use Morrell Park, then we are going to clean out the building.  There is no need to pay for a health permit every year if we are not going to use it.  
    • We could use the concession stand any time.  It does not need to be a HLL sponsored event.
    • There is a lot of money to be made if we do concessions.
    • Jason will find out from the City of Henderson if we are going to be able to use the fields for Tball and Rookies.
