Introduction Letter 2019

Welcome to Madison Little League
Madison Little League has served our community for over 55 years.  You and your family are the most important part of our organization.  We hope to make the 2019 season fun for everyone involved. Be a part of building the character of the youth today to be our leaders tomorrow.


This is a 100% VOLUNTEER ran facility and any amount of help you and your family can contribute will be greatly appreciated.   One way everyone is expected to help is that, each team will be required to work the concession stand a maximum of three times during the season.  You are expected to participate in the concession stand a minimum of one time per child to be eligible for All Stars. Any assistance on fieldwork days or before games will be greatly appreciated.  


Equipment, Insurance & Utilities will approach $20,000.00 in expenses for the 2019 season while sign up fees will normally total only an average of $12,000.00.  (Total is estimated by 150 players X $80.00 average sign up fees.) These totals show how important your assistance is with getting sponsors and volunteering in our Concession Stand.


Note:  All Fees are due at time of sign up.  All players who’ve not paid at the time of draft day will be drafted on an as needed basis.  Volunteer Waivers available upon request.


Sign-Ups will continue through the month of February.   Each player will be contacted by the coach after the draft.  Coaches are scheduled to Draft teams Sunday March 9th, 2019.  


Teams of 10 to 12 players will be selected.  Except T-Ball which will begin with 9 or 10 players.   Each team will receive scheduled practice times that will continue through the beginning of the season, Saturday, April 13th.   After that time, open fields will be available to teams working the concession stand.  Concession and Game schedules for In-Park games should be ready by April 1st.


Each Team will be scheduled between 16 and 20 games depending on number of teams in each league.  Normally, teams play one game during the week and one game on Saturday. Some age groups will be required to travel to play other area Little League parks.    


Madison Little League provides players with a jersey and cap of MLB team selected.  Each player will need to have a glove and rubber cleats or tennis shoes. Each team will select type and color or pants and socks which parents will responsible for purchasing.


Any questions or problems can be addressed by contacting the league President, Anthony Douglas.   In case of inclement weather, you should call or check MadisonLittleLeague.org.  Cancelation Messages will be posted 1 hour before the first scheduled game.  Rainout games are normally, played on Wednesday, Friday or Sunday.
